He is right, not only has it made Aldershot seem like a Ghetto its priced Johnny out of a job!
She fell for the romance of it and being a vegetarian is pretty single minded. She should have pushed for better welfare at home for the Ghurkas. That would have been a thousand times more productive and meant a lot less heartache for them!

Or we could just accept Gurkhas as British citizens in light of the service provided to the nation.
Furthermore we could extend this hospitality to the immediate family of the men who have served.
Tommy this and tommy that translates nicely into Nepalese.

We currently do which is causing the problem, priced out of the market now though so there wont be any gurkhas or former dependants within 100 years!
Silly really although I dont feel any animosity towards them the QGE were the laziest ******* I ever tried to get to work!

All well and good but in the real world it doesn't work. End of the day they got paid for their services and no one held a gun at their head to join up. Aldershot is in shit state and it's the Gurkha's fleeing from Nepal in their thousands with families in tow which has caused it. Oh, and that mong Lumley. Just because we employ someone doesn't mean we should look after them for the rest of their lives. Gurkha or otherwise. ******* idle little cnuts anyway.

Woking's awash as well with blanket clad toothless old folks from Nepal who look really out of place - dazed and confused.

Two years ago I paraded on Forces Day. There was a really good turn out with a sprinkling of Gurkhas marching with us. Could they march? Hell no! I thought there was only one step in H.M. Army where you set off on the right foot.

After the Parade there was a bunfight at the Club with a bar and sanrnies etc. We all got ther to find that Johnny G. had told the Nepalese community about the bash. They all rocked up early and scoffed all the chicken drumsticks and the best sarnies leaving us with cheese or fish-paste sarnies with the corners turned up to scoff.

Absolutely none, I'd do her at the drop of a hat, one of the best looking GILFs around and a posh accent too.

All this talk of serving the nation is hogwash. The Nepalese who join the Gurkhas do so to serve themselves. They join up for the money, or at least they used to - more recently, and largely thanks to the likes of la Lumley, they can now join up for a council house in Aldershot.

I fail to see the reason behind the misty-eyed romanticism that these little buggers seem to engender.

They were an amusing hangover of Empire when I first joined the army: they joined on a strict and unequivocal contract. They were cheap, they largely did as they were told (but they were no good in BAOR or NI) and they went home again when their time was up; cushty. The current 'parity' business is sheer folly and has failed. It is not good for them and it is certainly not good for us.

The whole bloody lot of them should be the first to fall at the first hurdle in the current Defence cuts.

You'd be ******* fed up with Lumley if you lived in Aldershot.
With the best will in the world hard to say it is a good outcome but there are far worse ethnic concentrations in this country.

Anyhoo this bit is rich

"Kevan Jones MP, Labour’s shadow defence minister, said Howarth had shown a "worrying lack of respect" to the former soldiers........."

And that from Kevan Jones. Pass the bucket.

True but most immigration is done slowly over a period of time which gives the authorities time to pander them. The Gurkhas have flocked to Aldershot and the surrounding areas like a swarm of locusts.

Worse ethnic concentrations? Is that said from a purely colour of skin view or one where an even bigger proportion of dependants are state funded?
Can you clarify please.

Nothing personal I'm just interested if you think Bradford is shittier than the Shot?

I think his point is their family members have served (And currently do), where as pretty well all our other migrants are just here on a tax free paid charter holiday via our coffers.

Lumley however did screw up, as always migration doesn't need a posh (Or if you're Labour a a bullied) white persons intervention.

Doesnt answer the question though! For those who rant on about how much the Ghurkas have given us well they ought to consider all of the Empire soldiers that gave. Now a few still turn up in Turbans with medals at events but its getting less. Should we throw out their grandchildren because they havent served?
Many of the west indians brought here in the 50's to help with our labour shortage had served in WW2. Should we send their grandkids home?
Ghettos are shit regardless of where they are and using emotive language to change the agreed contracts of people far better off staying at home was dumb and many of us fell for it!
I said way back when it started that its a real can of worms and any money spent on theem would do more good in Nepal!

No chance. I don't want sloppy seconds from one of Ken Barlow's ex girlfriends. after William Roache said that he had bedded around 1000 women, I would be scared of catching some kind of crotch rot.

I understand what you say about the Empire soldiers but the Nepalese are the only Battalions left of said Empire days. I think she screwed up don't get me wrong, but also I think (In my heart) I prefer Nepalese migrants other others, this based on the Gurkha's I have met and know. The problem in Aldershot seems to be those that have never served, the youngsters and the elderly.

In answer to your question I think Bradford's migrant demographics vs Aldershots migrant demographics, I prefer Aldershot.Based purely on Nepalese served. But I live in neither place so it makes my opinion worthless really. The worst I put up with is a influx of students.

By the time I wrote those replies I had forgotten what the OP had written. I'm still at a loss on an opinion, my head agrees with Gerald but as a cost saving measure, losing the Ghurkas will it actually mean the rest of the Army will see this money? Doubtful, so on that basis alone keep 'em.
