A good day for Parliament, Justice and the Gurkhas

April 30, 2009

Credit should go to the Lib-Dems for their Opposition Day Motion on Gurkha Settlement Rights yesterday.

An excellent debate and well worth the read.  As always, I was interested in how my MP voted, especially as he has made reference to the Gurkhas in one of his leaflets (well, the only one I have seen).

Here is list of how MPs voted.

In view of the honour graced on our area with some of these wonderful and loyal people settling here, I consider any Member of Parliament for this constituency voting against this motion to be terribly wrong.  He should explain himself without delay.  Will we have  a long wait to hear reasons?
