Justice for Gurkhas

gurkha vetran

About bloody time! The British government have finally been forced to reverse the ridiculous laws that deny Nepalese Gurkha soldiers discharged before 1997 the right to remain in Britain. As the news story will tell you, it’s been a sustained campaign fronted by Joanna Lumley and picked up by the Liberal Democrats that has made this possible. The arguement that “we can’t afford” to keep them is as insulting as it ludicrous. The British Government cannot, in all good conscience, hire these men, train them to be some of the best soldiers in the world, send them to fight in foreign countries, usually the most dangerous war zones and then turn their backs on them once they’ve served their time.

Nepal will always be a special subject of interest to me, but this is a triumph for forcing a government to face up to it’s responsibilities.

    Il prossimo appuntamento sar¨¤ ancora pi¨´ dirompente, assicura Ghisolfi. Domenica 28 settembre, ricorrenza di San Michele Arcangelo, nella spiaggia di San Michele di Pagana ci saranno, insieme a Cottafavi, le Custodie Cautelari, Riki Portera (chitarrista di Lucio Dalla) e Maurizio Solieri. Sulla presenza di quest’ultimo ci sono dei dubbi visto che i due giorni precedenti il chitarrista ¨¨ impegnato in un concerto a Bari con Vasco Rossi.
