Surging Migration Strains Our Nhs

As if to underline the role that mass, uncontrolled immigration has in adding to pressures on the NHS, recent figures from the ONS show that there were nearly seven million new registrations with GP surgeries by migrant patients in England, Wales and Northern Ireland in the past decade (2010-20).

Turn Back The Boats. Save Lives

September is now yet another record month in Channel crossings. Given massive abuse of the system it is critical that the government does everything possible to prevent illegal maritime crossings. This requires strong and effective enforcement. Stopping the boats will save lives. That’s why our message to the government as their new Nationality and Borders Bill goes through Parliament […]
