    Is this the same Labour party that opposed giving Gurkhas and their families the right to live in this country and bar them from claiming service pensions. Is this the same labour party that told an ex serviceman that had lost both legs and an arm that he would have to live in a high rise flat for at least 7 years. That caring Labour party. They just can’t help themselves can they.

    Hypocritical the Labour Party may be but, staggeringly, people still listen to them. The Gurkhas, especially, shouldn’t give them the time of day.
