A £10 charge to attend A & E.

26th August 2016 3

I was staggered to learn that only 327,000 people entered Britain last year. Not only are our borders open to all comers but on arrival they find the ground strewn with roses in the form of a free health service, free housing, free education, subsidised travel and virtually no tax.
