Hurray! War hero given leave to remain

...and quite right too. Story here.
A massive response from the public, lots of this sort of thing, petitions, pressure, people power - and lo, justice and right prevails. I love it when good things happen, for all the right reasons. People are amazing, and compassion and natural justice are some of the most powerful things in the world. And now I hope with all my heart that that Alan comes home, safe.

Candles in the dark can be seen half a mile away.

A light shineth in the darkness, and the darkness overcometh it not

This makes me happy, shame it took so much hassle from us plebs to get this bunch of bastards to do their duty...

Go to any commonwealth war grave and you will see the Gurkhas were in the thick of things in just about every theatre and conflict. Yet successive UK governments have treated them with total disrespect for decades. They get measly pensions and are treated as second class citizens despite risking and often giving their lives for our country.

At least in this particular case the politicians have seen sense. It's just a shame that they can't see the obvious without the need for petitions.

And quite right too the government should act with consideration and compassion.

Perhaps one day these people will be allowed home after being treated despicably by our government; and Tony Blair in particular.
