Howard gives notice for another cracking non-PC Aussie policy.

Read here

I have to say, I'm in complete agreement with it.

Helmet on!

We take the piss out of the Australians for being convicts etc, but if our government had just 1/2 of the balls that theirs has, this country would be a better place.

The looney left hate the Aussie's because they are Un-PC and have an effective immigration policy.
More to the point they don't give a flying f**k about what Doris Bleeding Hart MP from the UK, has to say about ANY subject that involves Australia.
You can see why so many Brits head to Oz every year.

I'm sorry it is not OUR Michael Howard.

Seems eminently sensible idea to me.

As a matter of passing interest, what is the position of our old 'friends' and 'loyal allies' the French on this ?

Lucky Aussies - they have a real Leader, not a preening, self serving, fatuous, 'wannabee' pop-star prat like Bliar.

PS. Just had to turn the wireless off - the oleaginous, sperma-tanned, quasi-terrorist Hain telling us all what was wrong with the 'Iraq 15' affair and how he would put it all right.

Unless we stand up, vote, and be counted, we will deserve to be governed by the likes of this unprincipled creep.

Why does Hain not stand for election in Putney - he did once? He only stands in Neath because he knows that even if Saddam Hussein (dead or alive) was the Labour candidate there he would be elected.

I hope Hain becomes Deputy Slime Minister as that will pretty well guarantee Labour being kicked out at the next General Election.

Come on good people of Neath. Follow Blaenau Gwent and get a real MP not a 'shoe-in', especially such a dreadful tin-tack throwing, insignificant, foreign, agitator as the rat like thing you currently have.

Just why the hell should we be paying for medical treatment for bloody immigrants who have contributed nothing.
My mother in law who is 84 has been told she can't have a hearing aid , no funds available to pay for it . She has paid in all her life as did her late husband who was a blue job , but we wont hold that against him.
Foreigners come to the UK get treatment and then complain how unfair the country is towards them.

Personally, I think it's a good idea, can't see any grounds to criticise it and think we should follow suit. As effectively a 'migrant worker' myself, an expat chasing a better life, I've had HIV tests demanded not by my any foreign government but by foreign employers and had no problem with it. Seems a bit pointless having the usual perfunctory medical without it.

Don't have any figures to hand, but remember a fairly recent press report saying that the main increase in HIV here was due to folks from Africa who brought it with them. Migrant workers are supposed to bring skills and the motivation to work (...that's what built Australia isn't it?) not diseases and the desire to get treatment.

It's a shame the UK will not follow the lead of Australia, before I was granted a visa I had to have a medical, chest x ray, blood tests, and sign on the dotted line to say that I understood that I would not be eligible for any benefits for two years.
Chances of that happening in the Uk? Slim to fcuk all methinks.

Can't see a problem with this.

All they ask is that you can contribute to their society and you are in.

I hardly think coming in with a fatal, incurable desease is the sort of contribution they are after.

Also, looking at the diesease, it affects, amongst others, druggies. Hard stuff users at that. So this ruleing will keep these parasites out.

Health Tourism, even from that industrial powerhouse America, is crippling our nation. Immigrants should be given basic life saving treatment only, every thing else they should secure themselves.

I'm all for helping people but this is beginning to take the p1ss. Either that or they should be presented with a large bill at the end of it for the flight home.

We should be part of the Aussies Common Wealth not the other way around!!!!

Bring Howard over here to be our PM!!!

Its a good idea, but each case should be taken individually. For example, what if you were infected with HIV because of a needle stick injury, or were given a transfusion with infected blood. Not your fault, but it would condem you along with those idiots who shag a slapper for shiits and giggles.

I think that this is sensible.

What is the point of importing patients where there is enhough costs involved in treating home grown disease?

Call me heartless, but if I get ill (in anyway) I would like to know that my Country's Health System (which I have paid into) will be able to treat me, and not put me in a queue with the immigrant population.

:twisted:

Hot on the heals of his previous pronouncement (paraphrased) "If you don't like our culture, stay away" the guy shows his electorate that he cares for them (or at least their votes)

Well done PM Howard!

One of the admirable aspects of Australia is it's disghust with free loaders, as they call them - dole bludgers. Call me cynical - but Britain seems to encourage it. I know people in this country that just feed of the state, never do a day's work because they either have kids, or one of the latest trendy mental conditions. Housing benefit, income support, the works. And then you get the dudes that wont do a job because it is too low for them - quite content to sit on their backside watching the tele till the dreamjob comes along. Doesn't seem to be any shame in it either. The cost of treating a HIV patient is astronomical since they go on for years. A perfectly reasonable stipulation as far as I'm concerned.

http://www.hpa.org.uk/infections/topics_az...4/fop_3_hiv.pdf

According to the figures given above there are 15454 gay men with Hiv in the UK
There are also 15998 straight people with it as well of which all but 3009 are non white.

Three-quarters of HIV infections, transmitted
through heterosexual intercourse, diagnosed
in the UK in 2003 were probably acquired
in Africa
You have almost exactly the same chance of getting HIV from a non-white persons as you do from a "man who has sex with men"!

I don't recall that the dark ages were characterised by free-at-point-of-use health care systems in certain parts of the world, which cost the state an astronomical amount, particularly in treating conditions such as HIV.

Why on Earth would you wish to let HIV+ people in if you could help it?

"Do come, you represent no net benefit to our country at all and will cost us many thousands of pounds to treat you, many thousands more than you will ever contribute in tax. You may even infect a few more people while you're on, further increasing your financial cost to us as a state and your social cost to the victims and their families. But hey, no matter - welcome in!"

Only in the Crazy World of Frenchperson...
