Surprised this has not been floated by Neue Arbeit before.... not many voters to worry about in South Nepal. Also the whole 'colonial past' aspect of the Gurkhas must really stick in the throat of the Islington gay save the whale wing of the party.
Lets face it chaps, it's blo*dy stupid to think of cutting back any Regiments. 1 ) Because that means there are less of you to fill the ever increasing commitments to foreign parts to get shot at.
2) Because all of these Regiments have long and wonderful histories that should not be put in to mothballs or amalgamated with those of others.
How they can justify any of this is beyond me!!!
If anyone fancy's giving TCH a kick in the balls he is MP for Kirkby -in-Ashfield near Mansfield but the chances of you finding him in the high street office are pretty low!!!!! Just put the window through instead!
