Dozens of Labour backbenchers are expected to vote against the Government's treatment of the Gurkhas.Of course, as we now know, they did indeed lose that vote, though not by as large a motion as I’d have liked. There were still 246 MPs who preferred that the UK take in the likes of this woman, or this man, while denying citizenship to those who had fought for us, and whose values so closely match our own.
The revolt comes after the Labour-dominated Home Affairs Committee told the Government to do more for the Gurkhas and summoned Phil Woolas, the immigration minister, to explain its stance.
Mr Woolas has claimed that giving free access to all former Gurkhas and their families could mean as many as 100,000 people moving to Britain.Yes, this vile, hypocritical little toad would actually try to use the spectre of ‘mass immigration’ to cow his backbenchers without once pointing out that Labour’s open door policy on immigration has been an unmitigated disaster which has forced their core voters into either apathy, or the arms of the BNP.
I mean, when even the odious creep Vaz can see which way the wind is blowing, and trym his sails accordingly, how dumb can you be?
Keith Vaz, the Labour chairman of the committee said ministers should "do the honourable thing" and admit the Gurkhas.I think this decision spells the end for Gordon – it’ll be a long-drawn-out, protracted end, but I think the sharks are beginning to circle at last...
