Since 2013, the UK government funded the White Helmets to the tune of (at least) £23 million. Since 2011, hospital beds available to UK hospitals have been reduced by 15,000.
That’s the equivalent of almost 10% of our UK capacity. Every night we hear the horror stories of our elderly relatives being shoved in a corridor, waiting hours for treatment, it happened to my own father, numerous times. A government official is then interviewed who inevitably insinuates that our population is growing (this is a direct criticism of the amount of immigrants the UK is accepting). The status of our health service capacity is never questioned, nor is the NHS budget.
I would dispute the amount of blame placed on immigrants for the crisis, and we shouldn’t forget, many that come here actually take poorly paid jobs looking after our elderly in nursing homes. How many pensioners have moved here from Europe? The people that come here have come to work. That means they are mainly younger immigrants and generally speaking, they won’t need to use the NHS so frequently. Sadly, with old age comes more and more reliance on our health system. There is a tiny problem of people coming here to specifically use the NHS but it isn’t significant enough to legislate against.
The White Helmets…Again.
The money given to an affiliate of ISIS, the White Helmets may seem insignificant to the UK budget but surely it could be put to better use than producing terrorist propaganda? The National Health Service estimate that it costs £400 a day for a hospital bed. That (£23 million) equates to 57,500 hospital beds being available, albeit for a single day. However it’s not just the White Helmets we have funded in ‘our’ efforts to remove Bashar al Assad. The truth is that we don’t know what else has been supplied as ‘non lethal’ aid, nor how much it has cost. Different departments are used as a smoke screen to hide the true expenditure. What we do know is that there are no moderate opposition in Syria and apart from a few at the beginning of the protests, there never have been. If it had been a natural domestic uprising, there would have been no need for all the extremist foreigner influx into the country. Do natural uprisings or protests about any government need foreign assistance? If it does, it’s an invasion, not a ‘peoples protest’.
The British people are being conned.
Our NHS shortage of capacity is being blamed on immigrants when it isn’t, and also being blamed on lack of funds, when it isn’t. We are actually observing the deliberate and calculated demise of the NHS, being run down to hand over to private health care, whereby they will do us all a great service by running it. Of course, they will start profiting from it and we will effectively have a US modelled health service. Anyone who prefers this system would be crazy.
Almost every unpopular policy is carried out ‘softly’. A very minor side issue is then used as an excuse to proceed with it .
For as long as I can recall, immigration is blamed for a multitude of national problems. I’m not advocating a free for all. I think immigration should be controlled but not without major foreign policy changes. Allowing (British) corporations and organisations to plunder third world countries by bribing their politicians and businessmen in order to strip that country of natural resources is a major reason people want to leave those countries. In many deprived countries there isn’t even minimal economic drip down to the poorest, not enough to feed themselves with dignity, never mind educate themselves. What would you do? What would I do? Continue living in a country that has nothing to offer or risk a hazardous journey across the sea? It gets to the point where people have nothing to lose, no hope, no prospects. These people are living in extreme poverty because Western companies are criminally stealing their natural resources with the coercion of corrupt officials.
Almost everything is connected…
The current immigrant crisis in Europe has a very clear and unambiguous cause but don’t expect the evening news to tell you. Before his vicious and disgusting murder, Libya’s Colonel Gaddafi warned Europe that his country was an important asset in stopping a huge influx of African immigrants that would proceed to Europe if he were to be removed. France and UK leaders were instrumental in his removal along with Obama. Not only did they open the floodgates, they also destroyed a very successful functioning country. Libya wasn’t perfect but name me a country that is.
Next came the deliberate destabilisation and subsequent invasion of Syria by US, UK and Israeli proxy forces, via the entity called ISIS. No, they didn’t just appear out of thin air, they have been carefully manufactured by the US and it’s allies to bring down governments that won’t capitulate to their demands. An added bonus to this creation is that they can use these ‘extremists’ as an excuse to attack all Muslims.
If a country is thrown into chaos, the natural reaction is to try to get out, it’s not rocket science. Many Syrians have done just that. The demonisation of Assad is then provided by our ‘trusted’ media, mission accomplished.
…Except, these refugees have to go somewhere, so they head for Europe.
This isn’t a mistake. David Cameron and Obama knew exactly what would happen. The same as Tony Blair and George Bush knew exactly what would happen after the invasion of Iraq. Do these three countries have anything in common?
The three leaders of Iraq, Libya and Syria were all severe critics of Israel and had supported the Palestinian cause. Coincidence? Make your own mind up.
