Save the Gurkha Regiment Campaign - Update
On 20th October, the Coalition will be announcing their spending cuts. Liam Fox (Minister) has defended the need to protect our Defence budget, however there will still be cuts, and so it is critical that we tell the politicians that the rumoured axing of regiments, particularly the Gurkhas, is a big mistake.

Henry Jackson Society An independent ‘think tank’ of (mainly) Cambridge academics.
The Henry Jackson Society is a non-profit and non-partisan organisation that seeks to promote the following principles: that liberal democracy should be spread across the world; that as the world’s most powerful democracies, the United States and the European Union – under British leadership – must shape the world more actively by intervention and example; that such leadership requires political will, a commitment to universal human rights and the maintenance of a strong military with global expeditionary reach; and that too few of our leaders in Britain and the rest of Europe today are ready to play a role in the world that matches our strength and responsibilities.
