citizenship for ex servicemen and dependants

The French actually give you citizenship if you serve 5 years in the French Foreign legion.

They say you are French,not by birth,but by the blood you shed for the country.

Here we have Ghurkas refused entry, ex service folks and dependants tossed out after service if they are not british.

At present about half a battalion in the Scottish regiment is foreign born.

We should allow ALL ex servicemen and woman british citizenship after 3 years service.

Also any ex service man or woman should have citizenship for their spouse and childeren even if that spouse is foreign born- automatically.

Many ex servicemen are married to women that they cannot get ciitizenship for, as they are not in the UK for the required number of years.Globalisation,means many are working overseas as they have talents that are undervalued here in the UK at present

they should the right to the family life ,that so many immigrants use as the means to get their families in to this country under EU human rights legislation.

why should we not give benefits to our heros that we give to our prisoners and asylum seekers

Why is this idea important?

engage the third sector in active repeal of housing construction regulations that hinder the building low cost affordable housing

A few years ago OXFAM and other NGOS were asked how long it would take them to supply low cost housing for the homeless in UK.

The answer was not long,but UK legislation on construction would not allow this.

After the war,the pre fab may have been utility,but it supplied housing starts for millions of UK citizens.

When landlord supplied via welfare and temporary housing is so costly, and not fitted for the role of supplying a home,why do we not turn to the organisations who manage to supply housing to the worlds worst housing crisis situations, by allowing them to work in the UK. or allowing their expertise to be used.

repeal the right to vote in UK elections for non UK citizens

Curretly, commenwealth citizens can vote in UK elections, despite not being british citizens.

Here in Singapore,many citizens actually voted in the last UK election, whilst I am unable to vote in the upcoming Singapore election.

I pay tax,live here and get no vote.

Yet commenwealth citizens can be in the same position in the UK ,and vote.

A vote should be for citizens of that country,and not visitors,permanant residents or foreign students-all of whom can currently vote in a UK election if resident here.
