No welcome in the hillside for Gurkhas

Miss Wagstaff singles out those Welsh MPs who voted against the motion on Gurkha Settlement Rights.

Below is the full list of Welsh MPs and how they voted. With 23 Labour MPs against, 5 Labour MPs and two Lib Dem MPs absent, and only a total of 10 MPs (the 3 Plaid MPs, the 3 Tory MPs, 2 Lib Dem MPs, the independent MP Dai Davies and only one Labour MP - Julie Morgan) voting in favour of the motion, the Gurkhas have little reason to feel welcome in Wales.

When the new Armed Forces Day is held later this year, we will no doubt see many of the 23 sycophants who put their party before their principles prancing around waving Union Jacks and telling us how much they support the Armed Forces.

Indeed, as Miss Wagstaff points out, John Smith is already having his picture taken alongside uniformed Gurkhas.

What a bunch of hypocritical spineless opportunist bastards.

On top of everything else the Gurkhas have done, they have been deployed here in Wales on various occasions, not only to protect the endangered Red Kite from egg robbers, but in times of crisis such as the Foot and Mouth outbreak in 2001.

    The Gurkhas wouldn't want to live in Wales anyway. Wales is a shithole full of inbred monobrowed midgets and you need half a pint of phleghm in your throat just to pronounce the place names.

    So anyone who agrees with the cause of the ghurkas in Wales should see that Labour are evil and not vote for them.

    Excellent. Yet another large tranche of voters to give Brown and his collected numpties a black eye in June (and beyond, hopefully)

    Every Labour MP with a 10,000 majority or less will be turfed out. I can't wait to get my say.

    Thank you for bringing this to attention. Add another reason to rid the red from Cardiff South and Penarth.

    Interesting that Plaid voted for the Gurkhas to stay, so is it just English settlers they don't want then?

    The Welsh are repulsive little homunculi who spread disease, coal dust and choral music wherever they go.

    Right, that's a strongly-worded missive to my local MP - Huw "rhymes with wanker" Davies!

    Anonymous said that the Welsh spread disease? Funny then that the only place in the UK currently free from Swine Flu is Wales. lol ;)
    I see that John Smith has decided to step down 'due to health issues', could it possibly that he has back problems due to the fact he has 2 faces and no spine.

    I think that we can all agree that the UK's response to coronavirus has been somewhat lacking. In fact, many people asserted that our de...
