BBC NEWS: ” Campaigners have reacted with anger to new rules on the eligibility of Gurkha veterans to live in the UK.

The Home Office said that new rules would allow about 4,300 more to settle, but the Gurkha Justice Campaign said it would be just 100.

Actress Joanna Lumley, a campaigner for the Gurkhas, said the announcement made her “ashamed of our administration”.

Immigration Minister Phil Woolas denied he had betrayed the Gurkhas, adding: “This improves the situation.”

He said: “It has never been the case that all Gurkhas pre-1997 were to be allowed to stay in the country. With their dependents you could be looking at 100,000 people…”

The government’s decision is a bad one, Phil Woolas the immigration minister by his comments  is a twit and is unfit for his job, Gordon Brown’s own comments on this case  are a total nonsense.  An injustice has been committed and it needs to be put right.
