What I don\’t understand is why they are wriggling so hard?
Immigration rules introduced in 2004 allowed serving Gurkhas with at least four years\’ service to settle in the UK but they did not apply to Gurkhas discharged from the British Army before July 1 1997.
The Government announcement followed a High Court ruling last year that immigration guidelines on older veterans were unlawful and in need of urgent review.
So the new rules?
David Enright, of Howe and Co solicitors, said: "They have set criteria that are unattainable. They require a Gurkha to serve for 20 years but a rifleman is only permitted to serve for 15 years.
Why the hell are they doing this? What\’s the damn point?
