Gurkha defeat for Brown

Posted on Wed, 29 April 2009 by Phil Mussell - General News, Medal News

Many of you will be following the debate about allowing Gurkha servicemen the right of British settlement. We at MEDAL NEWS are heartened to hear that Prime Minister Gordon Brown's motion to allow only limited numbers to stay in the UK was defeated today (April 29)

as seen here

We at MEDAL NEWS wholeheartedly support the campaign to allow ALL Gurkha soldiers the right to settle in this country - we allow enough "others" to come in and permission should not be denied those who fought in the British Army.
