    Ghurkas..

    Anyone heard of these mean buggers who have fought for our country? they're from Nepal, Used to do some pretty mad stuff during WW2 to the Japanese, like the japs used to sleep in pairs by each other, they'd slit the throat of one of them, and tie the boot laces to the sleeping Japanese soldier next to him, to demoralize and scare the shit out of them

    They've been fighting for our country for aaages, and there is around 7000 of them, and for fighting for our country, they'd like to retire In the country they fought for, some have been in our army for more than 20 years

    However, the government, as predictable as they are, have said NO to them, yet they allow people who have fought in the British commonwealth for no longer than 4 years? and they allow every Piotr and Svetlana with sod all qualifications, high chance of committing crimes into the country, the government have the cheek to say they don't have strong enough ties with our country?!

    Sorry for the Essay, but how unjustified is that? makes my blood boil really

    heard loads of stories about them, seem a valueable asset to our army tbh,

    seems unfair they cant live here, if they fight for us, they should be able to live with us,

    We had a load based near here. IIRC it was called the Queen Elizabeth Barracks in Church Crookham. All the Gurkhas have moved out now, and are doing jobs like Security around town.

    The Government need shooting IMO. These guys are pretty fearless in battle, and you would rather have them onside, than not!

    EDIT: A thread about their old barracks, and what is being planned for it now.

    naturally being in the forces i've heard of Ghurkas , crazy little dudes! They do a great job for our country! I didn't realise they were getting screwed over though. The Government needs sorting out in this country!

    i heard it was something do do with them having grown from a small specialist group and being allowed to stay in the UK to such a large fighting group that now they cant (since 1999). still unfair though

    the government has no idea on who should stay or who should go. Naturally the government would prefer the ones who sit in the job centre getting job seeker allowance to stay and the ones who work for there army to leave...

    The goverment is a joke. These people do so much for our country, they should be allowed to stay here.

    There is quite alot of them in my local town though.
