Many grassroots GPs may back the Government's migrant levy - but they won't if they have to police it


Can anybody really believe that HM Government is capable of introducing a system that would charge overseas visitors and illegal immigrants for primary care services? Not a chance. Every other country has managed it, it seems, but no way in the UK! It would require statesmen, and all we've got are politicians.It's another red herring, a soundbite from a Secretary of State intended to impress voters that Something Is Being Done under his watch. Ignore it, it'll go away.
