Description - Gurkha by Peter Carroll
This book tells the compelling story of The Gurkha Justice Campaign. GURKHA charts how it started from humble origins to becoming the campaign sensation of the year. Finally successful, it famously put right a historical wrong, brought a measure of honour back to contemporary politics, and gave justice to some of our truest friends. It was a campaign that in turn made and broke political reputations. At times heartbreaking and at others funny, this is a story that re-affirms faith in human nature; a spell binding account of how a lowly local politician, a firm of dedicated lawyers and a much loved actress overturned the policy of Her Majesty's government in spectacular style. GURKHA reaffirms the belief that when good minded people do good things good things happen as a result. For anyone disillusioned or jaded by life, this book shows that the incredible can be achieved. For those feeling that democracy and politics can't deliver - this is at least one shining example of our country and its institutions at its best.
