Brilliant stuff. Why do I get the feeling Phil Woolas is only taking a hardline on this because he wants to convince the country that Labour are not ‘soft touch’ on immigration? The best line on this issue though is by Jamie Sport:

A spokesman for The Mail said: ‘While immigrants are undoubtedly A Bad Thing, these ones are acceptable because they’ve stood alongside our boys and shot foreigners, which is good. It may seem contradictory of us to campaign for an overly severe cap on immigration while simultaneously declaring some immigrants should be allowed in but, in fact, it is not.’

    ["]While immigrants are undoubtedly A Bad Thing, these ones are acceptable because they’ve stood alongside our boys and shot foreigners, which is good["]

    The same cowards/losers that started the British Raj?

    Labour have tried quite a few of these supposedly ‘tough’ lines on immigration, but I think the voters stopped buying it months – if not years – ago.

    If Labour has such a problem with Gurka’s living in this country, why don’t they just stop using them to fight our wars. Problem solved!

    Over 90% of the votes posted on our website covering the Gurkha story have been in favor of all Gurkha veterans being eligible for UK residency.
