His plan to surcharge foreigners* for medical treatment in the NHS, and to fine Trusts for non-collection of fees.

* Including EU citizens, even when they hold EHICs.

Not that I hold a flame for Jeremy CHunt but just for clarification...

NHS trusts can already be fined for non-collection of fees - that measure was introduced under the previous administration.

There is no plan to surcharge EU citizens (as that would be unalwful).  What the Department of Health will be doing (or actually expecting CCGs to do from diminished funds) is paying trust's 25% extra for the treatment of EU citizens when they pass on the details of the patient to the relevant body (in this case the DWP).  The UK is entitled to recalim the costs of care from the relevant members state - but a lot of trusts don't bother collecting and passing on the data  and the UK loses money.

In case you're wondering, yes other EU countries do reclaim the costs of treating Brits in their systems from the UIK government.

Forty pages in and no nomination for sanctimonious war criminal fuckpuppet Benjamin Netanyahu?  UN condemnation a "travesty of justice and fairness".  And then the Israeli military blows the shit out of a UN school being used as a shelter.

If that's your idea of "justice and fairness", Mr Twatanyahu, then for the good of humanity could I suggest you head for Z├╝rich and jump off the roof of Dignitas?

Gosh, I think we just took him as read. didn't we? 

I think they targetted the UN school shelter to divert attention from the hospital they bombed the crap out of (with 'surgical precision', natch) and the journalists they attacked.

But d'you know what's really fucking annoying?

Nothing will get done - Sweet. Fuck. All.

Go through the UN? The Septics will veto it.
Speak out against the Israeli offensive? Congratulations, you're an anti-Semite.
Show any support for the poor fuckers in Gaza/the West Bank/wherever? Bingo, you're now viewed as supporting terrorists.

You can't win and as a result everybody loses and as a result shit like this is happening: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-28468526 - THIS, Mr. Netenyahu, is your "travesty of justice, fairness and common sense".

I've dealt with him professionally.  He's a whole loaf, never mind a sandwich, short of a picnic.

Look up 'raving mad cockwomble' in the dictionary and his picture is there.

It was probably his turn.  How else can we account for an Equalities Minister who doesn't believe in equality or a Health Minister who believes in homeopathy?

Let's hear it for Michael Shrimpton*, conspiracy theorist, climate change denier and ace bullshitter.

The term "sack of shit with a hole in it" springs to mind.

Look him up on you search engine of choice. You will need a capacity for self-restraint and a strong stomach.
