Proud to stand with local Gurkhas

I was recently contacted by some leaders of our local Nepalese community, most of whose households include a Gurkha who has served in the British Army. I was delighted to go and meet some of these Gurkhas to answer their questions about what I would do as Hendon's next MP and I got a very positive response, although everyone will make up their own mind how to vote in this election.

It was the Liberal Democrats who won the Parliamentary fight for justice for Gurkha veterans and it really is an honour to have met men who have served with such distinction in the British Army. I hope to serve them, and everyone else in the constituency, if elected as Hendon's Liberal Democrat MP.
