Gurkhas Pensions
Sunday, 06 July 2008 06:40

The high court has rejected a bid by former Gurkhas to get the government to pay them decent pensions in line with what other retired members of the armed forces receive.

Three former soldiers who have been retired because of ill health wanted their pensions upgraded to the same as recent new arrangements.

This situation is obviously unfair and affects a very small number of people who serve in our armed forces, considering the numbers of illegal immigrants and asylum seekers in this country who are taking benefits and working illegally it seems perverse to deny them a decent pension.
