Ayo gorkhali!

In these dark times it was heartwarming to hear yesterday that Joanna Lumley has been granted the right to take up permanent residence in England. After weeks reading about the unsavoury exploits of a bunch of unattractive people, a news item featuring a bit of absolutely fabulous posh totty came like a breath of fresh air, and it was unthinkable that she should be forced to take her kukri back to the Himalayas.

This reminds me of the one about the girl telling her friend that she was going to marry a Gurkha officer:

"But aren't they black?"

"Oh no, only the privates."

"My dear, how exotic!"
