This just makes me sick. I mean, what the heck is wrong with the UK? How on earth can they justify denying these people the right to reside in the UK? This is just shameful.
I should stress that I do see the Gurkhas largely as mercenaries, and even exploitative and all that, but this is just outright racial discrimination on the part of the UK Government. And having said that, where is the wisdom in discriminating against such a group of people when you’re relying on them in a war zone (Afghanistan)? And also, do you really want to provoke a group like this?
