The petty meanness of the politicos

Timmy reminds me of the fact that one third of the current Victoria Cross survivors are Ghurkas.
Hon Lt Tulbahadur Pun, 83, Gurkha, led survivors of his section to attack machinegun position, pressing it alone to allow rest of platoon to capture rail bridge Mogaung, Burma, June 1944.
...

Hon Havildar Bhanbhagta Gurung, 85, Gurkha, killed a sniper and cleared four enemy foxholes and a machinegun post, then repelled a counterattack, Tamandu, Burma, March 1945.

Hon Havildar Lachhiman Gurung, 88, Gurkha, repelled 200 Japanese soldiers despite losing three fingers trying to throw back enemy grenades, resisted for four hours, Taungdaur, Burma, May 1945.

The Ghurkas were feared throughout the world as being tough, honourable and almost-suicidally brave. They fought alongside us, and they were incredibly respected. Being the poor and tight-fisted bastard that I am, one of the only charities that I have give money to (the other is the Lifeboat Association) is one of those that gives money to Ghurka veterans. And why do I feel that this is only right; why do I feel moved to do this?
The Ministry of Defense still insists that they should receive lesser pensions than other troops and the Home Office that those who serve should not have the right to live or work in the United Kingdom.

Because those fucking scum we call politicians—who are only able to sit in their fat arses making stupid laws and stuffing their obese, fucking cakeholes with subsidised food because a load of brave ghurkas fought alongside our men (and still do)—have decided that the pissy little Asian boys ain't worth a tiny bit of gratitude. What a bunch of stinking cunts. As Tim says:
God we are ruled by scum.

Yes, they are scum; all of them: Tories, Labour, Liberal and, most of all, the high-up, Civil Service mandarins (who have been installed in the fucking bar for longer than most politicians)—whose enormous fucking salaries, expenses, pensions and freedom all derive from other people's bravery—because they keep this injustice going on. It would, in terms of government spending, cost nothing, nothing, to right these wrongs and they will not do it. It is simply petty meanness—especially when they are otherwise for incredibly profligate—and it demeans us all.

Our politicos are shits of the very first water; terrible, morally-bankrupt fuckers with all of the conscience of a fucking rock. Turds to a man (and woman), I hope that every single one of them suffers from the most extraordinarily painful and incurable piles, and genital thrush, for the rest of their—hopefully, unnaturallly short—lives.

Cunts.

Couldn't agree more - although I wouldn't have put it so delicately.

When shall we kill them?

Their excuse, as I understand it from the last time I heard this being discussed, is that they don't want to cause imbalance in the local economy. See? They do care really.

Actually, Gurkha remuneration is set by treaty with India (who also have Gurkha regiments)and Nepal. Sucessive British Governemnts have tried to get this changed - including this one - I'm sure everyone feels as strongly as you do that this injustice must be ended but the "imbalance in the economy" argument comes from the Indians.

I concurr totally with your choice of Charity though (british legion and RNLI for me too)

May I suggest that you lessen your tightfistedness and consider regular donations to the "valuable beyond words" Erskine Hospital?

You can do it online at Justgiving

Utter poetry Mr DK. Maybe John Prescott already has both conditions.

WTF does every other turd-world asian peasant (and his family) have the right to work and live in Britain except for those brave enough to put their lives on the line for an ungrateful nation? If the Queen was any fucking use at all she could use her influence to change that policy at least.

jackart: I assume you're just relaying the argument not defending it. I've never heard this argument. If it's true then we should tell India (and the rest of the world) that in future we will pay the Ghurkas the pensions they fought and died for. India can do what it likes.

Although I don't like to blame the Queen for anything vaguely political, since the Ghurkas swear an oath to the Queen on becoming part of the UK armed forces then you would have thought she would have done or said something. Maybe she has - we'll only know in 100 years time when the documents are released. In any event, don't be diverted from blaming the real culprits who are the scum who really rule us.
