Clean EUkip up NOW make UKIP electable! 


The corruption of EUkip’s leadership, 
their anti UKIP claque in POWER & the NEC 

is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name!  


“In politics, stupidity is not a handicap.” 
Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821)




we hear Farage & the Tories competing for who can be seen to be most beastly to immigrants, the most effectively, but perhaps they should take a glance at the law as it actually stands!

Here is the law on Tourist & immigrant rights to Healthcare, or for that matter the rights of UK citizens (which due to the folly of being members of The EU includes all those millions of EU vassals and the subordinate states)


This page explains what healthcare you can receive while you are living in the UK.

You will be able to receive healthcare from the National Health Service (NHS). Some or all of this may be free of charge, depending on your residency status and how long you have been living here.

Permanent residents of the UK do not have to pay for treatment by a general practitioner (GP) or at a hospital.

Permanent residents on a low income may qualify for extra free healthcare such as NHS prescriptions, dental care, sight tests and vouchers to help them buy glasses. More information is on the NHS website.

If you are a visitor to the UK or have temporary permission to live here (known as ‘limited leave to remain‘), you may be able to register with a GP in your area and receive free treatment. The GP can decide whether or not to register you. You may not be able to receive the full range of hospital treatment, because you must be a permanent resident or have lived here for a year to qualify for it. This applies even if you are a British citizen or have lived or worked here in the past.

You can find out more about this in the Department of Health’s guidance for overseas visitors.

Some health services are free of charge to everyone. These are:

  • treatment given in an accident and emergency (A&E) department or in an NHS walk-in centre that provides services similar to those of an A&E department;
  • treatment for certain infectious diseases (but for HIV/AIDS, only the first diagnosis and counselling that follows it are free);
  • compulsory psychiatric treatment; and
  • family planning services.

Certain categories of people are able to receive the full range of hospital treatment. These include asylum applicants whose application is still being considered, anyone who has lived here legally for the previous 12 months, and diplomatic staff. For the full list, see the Department of Health guidance.

A few categories of visitor can receive treatment for conditions that occurred after their arrival in the UK. This includes residents of the European Economic Area, or of countries with which the UK has bilateral healthcare agreements. See our Rights and responsibilities page for European nationals. The Department of Health guidance also contains more details.

If you are not in one of the categories that can receive free treatment, you may be asked to pay for any hospital treatment you receive. You may therefore wish to ensure that you have health insurance to cover your stay in the UK.

In an emergency, you should go to the nearest hospital that has an A&E department. If you cannot get there yourself, phone 999 or 112 and ask for an ambulance. These calls are free from any phone, including mobile phones, but must only be used in an emergency.

For more advice and information, see the NHS website or phone NHS Direct on 0845 4647.

Just like all the twaddle that has been spouted as a result of the costly and pointless show trial Leverson Enquiry there is absolutely no need for new Royal Charters, Laws or the like – All that is needed is to enforce the laws that exist not invent new Politically Correct publicity to permit useless politicians to strut and preen!

British Politicians with pens and treachery, in pursuit of their own agenda and greed, have done more damage to the liberty, freedoms, rights and democracy of the British peoples than any army in over 1,000 years.

The disastrous effects of British politicians selling Britain into the thrall of foreign rule by the EU for their own personal rewards has damaged the well-being of Britain more than the armies of Hitler and the Franco – German – Italian axis of 1939 – 1945.
