Campaign for the Gurkhas

Recently a very big news story here was a former Avengers actor's advocacy for the Gurkha soldiers of Nepal who had not been given right of residence in the UK by the Government. By bullying and charming (it is thought) various Ministers the already good case that had wide almost complete public support Ms Lumley is credited with winning this battle - her father had served with the Gurkhas. These lines came to mind as the rhyme to the name of this beautiful woman seemed too good a one not to miss using as below.






If you want a good campaign,


Best strategy is clearly plain.


Pick a leader who is comely,


Like lovely lady Joanna Lumley.




A short tribute if you've time.
