According to official figures a normal hospital delivery costs the NHS about £1,351

it is unsustainable

immigrants do not necessarily share the same respect for the taxpayer

it is a sovereignty issue

Migrants move within the country for seasonal work.  They may or may not be citizens.

Immigrants  ...

immigrants may take residency rather than citizenship, yet be entitled to the same benefits

unfortunately for the UK, the benefits may be claimed by nonresidents and noncitizens as well. For example, recently I read that tourists are entitled to free healthcare. This is unconscionable.

Thieving from the UK I call it.

I have to pay my Corporation tax each year, I have spoken to my Accountant about what Starbucks do and he said it's very complicated how they get away with it and not for smaller players under 100m per year, I fly Easy Jet every month and will never have coffee on the flight (starbucks coffee) in fact last week on my way back to UK I wanted to stand up on the plane and explain to everyone that Starbucks con the UK out of taxes,
The public should do the same as was done to Gerald Ratner!!!
