Gurkhas Under Threat

And? Are you trying to tell us something that we don't already know?
Every Government dept has been told to save between 20-40%. Each dept is saying how vital they are to the running of the country, and each is putting into the public domain potential sacrificial lambs.
The RGR, and asscociates, are such a sacrificial lamb. They may well lose some of their organisation - as will the rest of the forces - but Cameron is no fool. If he tries to axe the Ghurkas after last years events; he's on to a loser. Ergo RGR will still exist (albeit modified).Guinness. It's the first food group.

Another 'Ghurkas under threat thread. It's been so long since the last one.

I thought Liam Fox said such claims were "bollocks".

I am sure they are Singapore police but certainly not Gurkhas. What a cracking start !

If it is true, so much for the CMD and Clegg support last year when Saint Joanna was giving it laldy against the then government.

Gurkhas are indeed fine men and totally loyal. But if it's a choice of cutting them or one of the other light infantry units like say the Paras or the Royal Marines?Think of a herd of cats briefly all moving in the same direction due to a random quantum fluctuation...
