What do you guys think about this?

They let whoever feel like it come into this country & then pay them loads of benefits!
Yet these men fought for our country & the government dont give a damn about them!
This government sucks big time! But then again theres nothing new about that!!

I totally agree with you.

Totally agree. I was talking to an ex SAS fella the other night and he said that every soldier he knew agreed that the Ghurkas were the most respected soldiers they had ever worked with. And then the big wigs treat them like this!

Agree, the government are happy to let benefit scroungers in with open arms, yet these fabulous people who fought for us are treated in this way - disgusting.

Anyone who fights for a country and puts their life on the line for said country should be allowed to live there! Simple. It's not like we're talking about the influx of an entire nation - i'm sure there would be an uproar if we booted all the Chelsea Pensioners out the country!

So the british forces, and americans should automatically be allowed to live in Afghan and Iraq? I think that would cause even more uproar.

Totally different scenario - the yanks/british are fighting in that … Totally different scenario - the yanks/british are fighting in that country - Gurkhas are part of the british armed force yet are not allowed to live here


No they ain't they are fighting WITH that country! I totally agree with Gurkhas being allowed to live here, as well as Fijians and the many more that fight sweat and tears for this country. I believe that you should contribute in one way or another to this society, to be able to take from it.

Well I certainly wouldn't expect them to be treated with the same disrespect that our country treats the Gurkhas.

But hypothetically, if a British unit was enlisted in an Iraqi/Afghan army (not under control of a seperate army) and fought for that country in a war, then why shouldn't they at least be given an option to live in the country that they represented with their life?

Ashamed

I didn't disagree with you, i was just stating that i think it would cause massive uproar in my opinion.

it makes me feel sick to read about the way our gov treats people who have fought for there country , they should all be allowed to stay
