This link is the vote that Labour thankfully lost, which attempted to shaft the Gurkha's. A vote by MP's not to let these men settle in the UK. Followed by outright lies by the PM that it would cost us millions. So I have taken a look at every MP who voted against letting the Gurkha troops settle in the UK.
So lets have a look shall we at the Rt. Hon. members that, pay less tax in real terms than workers on £200 a week. No paying the TV licence for them, no council tax, no phone, sky, cable, internet, utility bills, hell even food upto £400 a month; instead they bill all this to the taxpayers.
Everything from cleaning, through to soundproofing, gables and any old rubbish the MP's can dream up.
Yet when it comes to helping OAP's and former servicemen who took up arms for this land, they was their hands like Pilate. No doubt charging us for the soap used to wash their Rt Hon. hands.
First up Derek Wyatt, now Derek loves being a Labour hog with regards his expenses. He also voted to keep 2nd home allowance.
Tony Wright a hoon who likes to
Phil Hope who spent more than £10,000 in one year refurbishing a small London flat. He has promised to pay back £41,000 to the taxpayer
So despite the public support for the Gurkha's, all these MP's thought that voting with the leader far more important than public opinion. Far better for them to preserve their perks and privilages than do the right thing.
As for the MP's who abstained on that vote, they are scum as well.
