    I heard yesterday the British Parliament was considering offering the Gurkhas citizenship for their service in Iraq? Anyone else heard anything?

    Don't you mean "subjects," not "citizens?"

    There are Gurkhas in Iraq, Afganistan and just about everywhere else the British army is serving. They are the best regular infantry (i.e. not including special forces, marines and paras) out there, not the kind of people you want to leave behind.

    It is in the papers today that the Gurkhas who serve this country will be allowed to settle here.
