Rt Hon. Kevan Jones MP, the new Labour scum sucking pig in attacks on Joanna Lumley.

The New Labour smear tactics are still going strong.
Gordon Brown apologised to Joanna Lumley yesterday for what she called a smear campaign by one of his ministers over her championing of the Gurkhas.

Kevan Jones had attacked the actress's 'deathly silence' on the Nepalese soldiers' welfare since she forced a government climbdown over their right to settle in the UK.

At a press conference yesterday Miss Lumley, 63, vehemently denied that she had misled the Gurkhas or raised false expectations of a better life in Britain.

Fifteen minutes before she was due to speak Mr Jones, the Veterans Minister, apologised publicly for his comments earlier this month.

Miss Lumley said the Prime Minister had also apologised to her.

The actress last year forced ministers to change the law to allow older Gurkhas who have served Britain to settle here.

But Mr Jones said veterans had been given misleading information about the benefits and support they would receive. He said Miss Lumley had failed to explain the rules to them.

He told the Home Affairs Committee on March 9: 'Her deathly silence, frankly, irritates me.'

Frankly this sack of shit breathing irritates me. 
Mind this is a government that could not even work out a guess for how much letting the Gurkha's settle in the UK would cost.

The committee was told that the Government’s own (guess)estimate of the cost of allowing all Gurkha veterans to settle could be one third of the figure quoted by ministers. Martin Salter, the Labour MP for Reading West, said the estimates ranged from between £425 million to £1.6 billion.

Between £425 - £1.6 billion, bejesus can they not even work out a figure say to the nearest million quid? What the fuck is that, back of the fag packet maths? A guess, a stab in the dark, did they pick it out of the air?

Seriously can you believe that. Go to any company for a quote on anything and they will work out a figure for you. Yet these loons can't even do that. 

How impressed would you be upon putting the car in for an MOT, that the quote was £1000, oh maybe it's £400, or maybe £50. Dunno mate have to get back to you on that.

Kevan Jones, a junior Defence Minister, said the next Gurkha campaign would be a demand for equal treatment on pensions, which would require a one-off payment of £1 billion and £500 million annually.

Sure about that Kevan are you? Did you dream those figures up as well or are they based on some factual working out on the back of a fag packet? Maybe they came to him in a vision on a mountain top, sorry forgot New Labour don't do God.

Then based on probable fag packet maths they mumble threats about the future of the Gurkhas.

Further financial demands could jeopardise the future of the Gurkha regiment, he said. “We want to ensure that we can continue to recruit to the brigade of Gurkhas. If that becomes unjustifiable we will have to balance that against other commitments to other regiments.”
He said that a deadline of the parliamentary recess, the end of July, had been set for the Government to come up with a new package after last week’s Commons defeat.

On and on the vile New Labour communists go, with their attacks on anyone who dare oppose them.

Lastly it is unrelated but shows their attitude in that left wing lovvie and New Labour spineless running dog and actor Patrick Stewart picks up an honor in the New Years list, for his fawning over Gordon an yet Joanna gets not a mention.... Strange that.
