Gurkhas and Diego Garcians - The Real Racism

The ongoing scandal of the treatment of Gurkha soldiers by successive Tory and Labour governments reveals another facet of the Real Racism that afflicts our society.
The Real Racism is the racism that affects the ethnic majority of the country who suffer the vast majority of racist attacks and is also the racism that afflicts those brave and loyal subjects of the Crown such as the Gurkhas whose patriotism has always been despised by the Labour Party and whose loyalty have always been betrayed by the Tory Party.
It is sadly true that the old saying about Britain still rings true - If you are a friend of Britain the government will sell you out, but if you are an enemy of Britain the government will buy you off.
Those Gurkhas who have fought with loyalty to this country have more rights to live in our country than any asylum seekers, illegal immigrnats or economic migrants. But of course they are British patriots who served in the British Army, and are therefore despised by the New Labour PC elite who will send them to war but abandon them once they are no longer needed.
Just as the sight of brave Gurkhas marching to demand their rights is a sign of how low this government has sunk, the sight of ethnically cleansed and homeless Diego Garcians having to take the Labour government to court in order to reclaim their ancestral lands and property from the British government who stole it from them was also a sickening sight.
Whilst the Labour government celebrated the theft of Kosovo from Serbia, it was at the same time denying the evicted Diego Garcian people their own homelands by fighting the case in the High Courts in London. This was hypocrisy of the most sickening kind.
The BNP intend to return Diego Garcia to the native peoples of that land. The BNP also intend to pass legislation that will allow all those brave Gurkhas who fought for Britain to be allowed to reside in the UK if they so wish and that they get the same pensions as other British soldiers. That is the contract with these brave men that we in the BNP intend to fulfill.
