It may be a different argument, but once we change one law like this then a second law invariably applies. That is the law of unintended consequences. While it can be easily construed that we do have a moral obligation to the Gurkhas, we also - as you quite correctly say - have a country governed by political ******* -and you will find that they will be incapable of controlling any consequential actions by others.

You know that, like the Gurkhas it will go to court and you know what the lawyers and judges are like..they will quote precedent of the Gurkhas and before we know it..another lot come flooding in.
We already have another lot coming in all the time Tealeaf, there's about a Million of um as a conservative estimate, because nobody has a clue who they are or where they are, they're called illegal immigrants

Re: joanna lumley on gurkhas

As far as I'm concerned, it boils down to one thing - these guys were prepared to lay their lives on the line for this country, so if they want to live here, they should be able to. As for future consequences, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
