Daily Mail retracts “immigrants broke NHS” story… 

On that line from Boris about immigrants breaking the NHS last night? Not true apparently.

    Daily Wail in outrageous racist little Englander exaggeration shock.

    No surprise then.

    the NHS is broken financially that much is true but who broke it? we did, we abused it.

    What a surprise…Daily Mail making stuff up

  • Kevin Breslin

    It must be really bad a statement if the Daily Mail has to apologize for it.

    I loathe the Daily Mail but if your have a migrant population equivalent to the size of Cardiff arriving every year, public services can’t keep up with the increased demand.

    That message is starting to hit home to those of us who know what a booming population means to quality of life. No wonder Remain is getting desperate.

    Vote Leave.

    Mick – your headline is wrong, it should read:
    Daily Mail retracts “EU immigrants broke NHS” story…
    It looks like they will be going with “Immigrants and wrinklies broke NHS” and there’s nothing to stop them; unless some NHS managers want to admit to incompetence.

    You have more chips on your shoulder than Harry Ramsden’s.
