Today, the High Court ruled against the Government over ministers' decision to deport retired gurkhas rather than let them live here and become citizens. These are people who have fought for our country and put their lives on the line for us. The least we can do is recognise they have earned their citizenship and, after contributing so much to our nation, that they have a right to live here.
I was outside the Royal Court of Justice for the announcement today. Nick Clegg and Ming Campbell were there as well, as was Joanna Lumley the actress who is a great supporter of the campaign. Peter Carroll, a leading Lib Dem campaigner in Kent, was one of the key people in the campaign and he was there as well.There's are some of the photos I took.
