Quote from Immigration Minister Phil Woolas who said new rules would "improve the situation" but "we have to go through each case". He told GMTV: "We will be more generous where there has been valour, long service and where there are medical conditions as well. "It has never been a proposition that all Gurkhas pre-1997 should be given grants or settlements. Along with their spouses and close dependants, that would be around 100,000 people. "We have obligations to other people around the world and we have to be fair." BULLSHIT!! What other people do we owe a greater obligation to than the Ghurkhas?
