UK: End of "Free" NHS Healthcare for Migrants Under New Immigration Bill

Pretty smart move, a little late but a good move. 

David Cameron is an idiot though. Why would anyone conservative even think of voting for him again?

Anyway-the UK might have taken a page from Canada on this issue.

If you have not paid into the system, you cannot access it.

Makes sense to me.

However, this is one of the most sensible parts of the new immigration bill. The Telegraph is claiming credit for it, and I don't know if that is really the case or not but it is a victory for common sense nonetheless:

"A victory for The Sunday Telegraph’s campaign to end the farce that sees foreign criminals dodging deportation by appealing using the Human Rights Act. "

"Instead the law will allow immediate deportation and appeals from outside the country unless criminals can show they face “serious and irreversible harm” in their home countries."
