    But the alternatives are no better; we will be open to all sorts of fraudulent characters from China, Russia and the US when we leave.

    Who knows, we might return to days when we had a National Health Service instead of the International one that we have at present.

    Our NHS is fine; I've seen my doctor this morning, had a blood test last week; have my annual health check later this week.
    All free, all at times to suit me. I never saw any EU interference. Of course it will be so much better when we leave and get the £350m/week :facepalm:

    I thought of you when I watched that video a couple of days ago. I had intended to post it.

    The Houndog makes some very informative videos.

    You are one of the lucky ones. Some of us have to wait a week for a telephone consultation.

    It is a postcode lottery.

    Most of those debts are non EU; my friend works for the NHS in an accounting capacity. If the will was there we could chase the money now. It has nothing to do with the EU, they are mainly Asian and African

    We were already doing that; and Europe too. Now we will depend on the rogue nations.

    Who has invited those people into Europe if it isn’t Mrs Merkel and her beloved EU?

    Most come directf rom Asia/Africa and will continue to do so post Brexit but in larger numbers to make up for the EU workforce we will lose.

    We will be able to ensure that it is a workforce and not a benefits raid.

    Nothing that we can't do now. EU migrants have been net contributors to the UK economy.

    Try a publication with no agenda (ie not the Express)

    Do EU immigrants contribute £1.34 for every £1 received from the UK?
