There are 2000 Gurkhas in Singapore and 140 more annually

From Reuters report just this morning reproduced in the Today paper.

Looks like our Ministry of Home Affairs ought to explain why we are employing so many Gurkhas who waste our rice and end up doing nothing but let Mas Selamat Kastari escape and brawl with each other in their police special pound…. er….. compound.

May i ask MHA whether those Gurkhas who are police officers who have brought the name of the Singapore Police Force into contempt and disdain and disrepute be charged accordingly for rioting within their police compound? The MHA better tread carefully on this because it does not mean that if it is a police compound of the Gurkhas that Singapore Law does not apply there.

Hello Wong Kan Seng, let me hear an intelligent reply from you now, since your Godly pets have now misbehaved. 🙂

We now know that our taxpayers’ money is used to feed 2000 Gurkhas and their families. No wonder we find life in Singapore tougher and tougher. 🙂

It seems that the cat’s out of the bag, we have as many as 2000 Gurkhas in the Gurkha Contingent. Furthermore, this figure grows at 140 per year.

I remember it was a short time ago that there were only 600 Gurkhas in Singapore.

Gurkhas are being recruited at a rate of 340 per year, and 140 goes to Singapore it seems.

Why such a massive buildup of foreign mercenaries in Singapore?

Is the purpose of this Gurkha Contingent meant to sideline and neutralise a Singaporean SAF and Police Force in time to come?

Will we hear from the Ministry of Home Affairs on this one? Or will courage of the MHA and the Gurkha Contingent be limited to the confines to their special pounds …. err sorry compounds? 🙂
