To fund the N.H.S., I propose an non-European Health tax on immigrants for each person, including infants, at £50 per week each for the first six years.
The would stop the influx of free-loading `asylum seekers`, and the like.

The NHS the most precious service offered by society. It should not be up for debate regardless of cost. Once inroads are made, we are on the slippery slope to the American model where a free market dictates costs and where millions of citizens have to make do with the most basic of cover. We do need to think differently, but perhaps not in the rather loaded way this group intends. We need to tax people and businesses appropriately so that this facility is protected.
