With the latest round of belt-tightening looming large, the Government/MoD have, once again, the golden opportunity to do away with our friendly little chums from Nepal. At the same time they should surely be looking to kerb the drafting of Commonwealth people into the Army. The dear sainted and thoroughly irresponsible Joanna Lumley (who seems to have lost interest in her charges) needs to be sectioned and the country needs to snap out of the misty eyed sentimentality that descends as soon as Gurka is mentioned. Have a stroll through Aldershot these days and see what a mistake it all was. It'll only get worse. Whilst the government is quite rightly looking at reigning in the amount it fritters away on 'Overseas Aid' on undeserving causes, at the same time it would be wise to consider saving money (our money) and spending it on 'us'! I think it is a travesty that British citizens will be slung out of their own armed forces in great number over the next three or four years, whilst those not of these shores will not.
