A decorated Gurkha who fought in the Falklands War has been banned from entering Britain to get treatment for injuries sustained in the conflict.
Why, you ask, would they do such a thing?
LCpl Rai, 51, recently tried to come to Britain to get NHS treatment for his injuries as he cannot afford the necessary medication in his home country of Nepal.
But Government officials rejected the father-of-five's application fearing he would stay here and claiming he had insufficient links to justify a visa.
Their decision means he also missed events in Britain to mark the 25th anniversary of the victory of the conflict, which took place yesterday, and has caused outrage.Apparently the bureaucrats and politicians don't consider bleeding for the country a 'sufficient link' to give him a visa.
