Nigel Farage proven right on HIV health tourism in the UK
[link to www.dailymail.co.uk]

When Nigel Farage attacked the high cost of health service treatment for foreigners with HIV it was guaranteed to provoke controversy.

Instantly the Ukip leader was accused of ‘dangerous scaremongering’.

But, while some of his claims were overstated, the latest official figures show that more than half of those newly diagnosed with HIV in Britain – where their country of origin is known – were born overseas.

Mr Farage said on Thursday night’s televised debate: ‘Here’s a fact and I’m sure that other people will be mortified that I dare to talk about it.

‘There are 7,000 diagnoses in this country every year for people who are HIV positive. It’s not a good place for any of them to be, I know, but 60 per cent of them are not British nationals.

‘You can come into Britain from anywhere in the world and get diagnosed with HIV and get the retroviral drugs that cost up to £25,000 a year per patient.

‘I know there are some horrible things happening in many parts of the world, but what we need to do is put the National Health Service there for British people and families who in many cases have paid into the system for decades.’

Labour leader Ed Miliband branded the comments ‘disgusting’ and former England captain Gary Lineker wrote on Twitter: ‘Always reluctant to offer a political view, but Farage is a d***!’

Yesterday Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg also took to Twitter to condemn the remarks, saying: ‘Farage’s comments about foreign people with HIV were simply vile and desperate. Politics of the lowest form.’

Mr Miliband also tweeted: ‘He should be ashamed. The fact he isn’t says so much.’

Well I know someone with HIV, a promiscuous gay guy, here in the states, he gets the best medical coverage paid by the taxpayers, plus his "disability" is $1,500 a month. He even gets free gym membership.

It's good to have unsafe sex and get HIV in this country, automatic SSI qualification, even free GYM MEMBERSHIP.

I am not at all convinced that HIV is even a real disease - shouldn't half of Africa be dead from it by now from what they said in the 80's?
