It's all the fault of them foreigners.
How many patients in our hospitals are migrants? I know that the London hospital my brother worked in was over-run with people who were not entitled to care, but got it anyway with few questions, because staff were afraid to enquire too deeply for a real fear of accusations of racism.
For every hospital bed an unentitled migrant takes, there is a fully paid up citizen who goes without treatment.

agree with the comments about migrants draining a health system which is already on it's knees. I recently accompanied a seriously ill friend to A&E. Not a single other patient spoke English. In fact, it looked to me as if some were attending as though A&E is some kind of walk-in clinic for minor ailments. The medics wouldn't dare tell the time-wasters to clear off for obvious reasons.
This is what our parents, grandparents and Aneurin Bevan fought for. A healthcare system for the waifs and strays of Europe. A healthcare system that criminally lets down those who finance it.

I think this poster also deserves to be on the 'Cunt of the day' thread.
There are dozens and dozens of frothing comments.
