During the so-called Leaders’ Election debate, Nigel Farage made a point of picking out ‘Health Tourism’ and those who have contracted HIV in particular, as being a huge drain on the British N.H.S. He was roundly condemned by a couple of the so-called Party Leaders, including Plaid Cymru’s and Labour’s as being ‘disgusting’ and ‘uncaring’.
Now I may be one cynical old man, but do any readers think it truly surprising that only eleven days after the UKIP leader dropped his verbal, truthful but probably very unwelcome bombshell; the Dept. of Health issued an order that all NHS hospitals check the residence and immigration status of anyone who checks into outpatients or A&E, to make sure they are legally entitled for free treatment. Inclusive, I might add, of any more Nigerian expectant mothers of quintuplets!
Nigel might just have his uses after all.
