Where's Michael Moore?

LONDON/THE SUN -- Illegal immigrants are sneaking OUT of Britain because they are sick of our weather and hospitals.

Chief immigration officer Les Williams said: “We have recently noticed people trying to leave the country. Some said they wanted to go to a warmer country as they are fed up with the English weather and their treatment from the National Health Service.”

He said: “They were sick of the rain and cold and wanted to go somewhere with a bit more sun. They also complained they could not get appointments to see a doctor or a dentist.”

The Sun revealed in December how pregnant Polish immigrants were heading home to give birth because prenatal care was better in Poland.

Do you have any more anecdotes that you would like to use in your arguments?

Did you find a daytime heat record somewhere in the world that should prove to your readers that global warming does not exist?

You are aware, of course that in GB that have two complete medical systems. One is National Health and the other is a completely private, for profit system. I'm sure you mean this post as a put-down of National Health. But I wonder why the immigrants are are not using the British private, for profit system
health system. Maybe it is even worse or more expensive then National Health.

Of course their are also many stories about Latin Americans living in the US returning to their country of origins to give birth at home. So I guess, by implication that the US system is worse then that in many Latin American countries.

Britain has been reforming its failed NHS system for years now.

“Politically, it is impossible to privatize the NHS overnight,” admits Butler. “But it’s certainly possible to open up the market to a mixture of public and private provision, and public and private payment, just as it is everywhere else in the world. I think we should give people the taste of freedom, and we will soon find them demanding more.”

I do find it ironic that free healthcare for the illegal immigrants isn't good enough for them.

I'm not sure what global warming has to do with healthcare. But, I'm sad to see that it won't get warmer till 2015 again. It's been frickin cold around here.

It's too bad we can't just drive our cars some more to warm things up a bit. Bundle up!

"their are also many stories "

should be "there" rather than "their" (possessive - ie. students were asked to bring their textbooks)

"by implication that the US system is worse then that in many Latin American countries"

should be "than" rather than "then"

Send them to California. We have great weather year round and they just need to go to an emergency room at the local hospital and they will be seen by a doctor regardless if they have the ability or desire to pay or not!
