"We cant just let nice people in" says wooly woolas.

More idiocy from wooly....

'They may be a special case morally,' Mr Woolas said, 'but legally you cannot legislate on that basis. We have to have a law.

'Sometimes the law does not seem to comply with common sense.'

Miss Lumley rejected the legalistic arguments: 'It is no use saying the Gurkhas are the same as other immigrants - They are utterly, utterly different.' She said the Home Office letters were 'madness'.
The announcement of the deaths came hours after Labour's immigration minister amazed Gurkha campaigners by declaring: 'We can't just let the nice people in.'

Phil Woolas - fresh from an embarrassing televised encounter with Gurkha champion Miss Lumley - took refuge from further complaints behind the technicalities of the law.

'I can't say "let the nice people in and the nasty people not". We have to have a law,' he protested in a second broadcast run-in with Miss Lumley.

He insisted that any concessions to the Gurkhas will require careful checking by lawyers to ensure no similar case could be made by other groups, such as Commonwealth soldiers who fought for Britain in the Second World War.

But his arguments drew further scorn from Miss Lumley on BBC Radio Four's Today programme.

Miss Lumley told the minister that few war veterans would trouble immigration officials.
'I am an old age pensioner and I was born after the war,' she said. 'The Gurkhas are a special case.'
How did this fool get to be elected? Or even proposed?

I found those comments rather absurd too. He is basically saying that it is unfair to choose who we allow to settle in this country. Where do these idiots come from?

Why can he not just humbly back down? He has been defeated at every turn about the whole Gurkha Issue, yet he still refuses to see sense! It seems impossible for him to do anything right!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phil_Woolas

He went to Nelson Grammar School on Oxford Road in Nelson, which became Walton (Lane) High School when the Local education authority (LEA) went comprehensive in 1972. The school is now Pendle Vale College since 2006 when the former buildings were demolished and re-developed for housing. After O levels, he went to Nelson and Colne College. He received a BA in Philosophy from the University of Manchester.

Woolas joined the Labour party at the age of 16 and became involved in student politics through the Anti-Nazi League.[3] Before entering Parliament, Woolas was Head of Communications at the GMB trade union (1991-7) and previously a television producer for the BBC (on Newsnight) from 1988-90 and ITN (Channel 4 News) from 1990-1.[4] From 1984-6 he was President of the National Union of Students.[2][4]
I think explains it all, never really done a proper days work in his life or mixed with the proles!

Woolas. I had some mild dislike for him and did feel uncomfortable when Joanna L stopped him lying his way out of a crisis, but now I have stronger feelings towards Silly Phil.

If youre listening Phil - Dont use nursery school talk to adults. You sound like a condescending superficial pompous little c@ck. I can work out for myself who I think are "nice" and those who I think aren't. "Nice" isnt a word used often in respect to Gurkhas. Fearsome, fearless, tough, disciplined, respected are a few words that can be applied to them. I want Gurkhas in our communities. It would be an honour, which isnt a word that you will recognise Mr W.

Now if a government doesnt have border controls and organisations to keep people who are not "nice" out of the UK then they are failing. I find people who would return from Madrassas and want to blow up people on public transport not "nice" and please keep them out of the UK. Even with your simplistic language it is a vital function of the Government and its agencies to prevent not "nice" people from getting in.

Its worse than that. By using such terms its clear that Silly Phil beleives that its WE who are simple. Hence why I think he is a pompous little clagnut.

I'd rather let "nice people" in than the human rights abusers, russian gangsters, african warlords and general ne'er-do-wells that the government seems not to mind too much. "Violent but rich" seems to trump hard-working values yet again in the eyes of the government.

This military hating (because he could never be good enough to be in the military) shit has now escaped prosecution for breaking the law.

The lady from 'Absolutely Fabulous' exposed this shit's uselessness, but the Crown Prosecution Service (Boss: Friend of Tony) says no prosecution. What a bummer!
