Boris Johnson drops NHS fee for migrant healthcare workers in humiliating U-turn 24 hours after defending policy

Charge was branded ‘immoral and monstrous’ by a former Conservative chairman

Boris Johnson has ordered the removal of the NHS migrant surcharge from health and care workers, in a humiliating U-turn a day after telling the House of Commons it would stay.

The climbdown came amid intense pressure on the prime minister over the £624-a-year charge, branded “immoral and monstrous” by former Conservative chairman Chris Patten.

It followed an earlier U-turn by home secretary Priti Patel when she extended a bereavement scheme for NHS migrant workers to include support staff like porters and cleaners alongside doctors and nurses.

And it came just days after The Independent revealed that Ms Patel had quietly dropped a review of the surcharge issue which she had promised.

Royal College of Nursing general secretary Dame Donna Kinnair welcomed the move, but said it was “a shame it took this pandemic for the government to see sense”.

Blue also correlates with property value, least likely to eat raw offal, ability to read and least likely to have sex with relatives.

Bit like blue states in the USA really.

Things that are being eased from lockdown in the UK:

Tennis
Golf
Fishing
Nannies
Home cleaners.

I think it's important at this point to remind my followers that the Tory party won the last election.

Led by Donkeys campaign van broadcasts government lockdown advice outside Dominic Cummings' house

A campaign van has been placed outside Dominic Cummings’ house in blaring health advice and clips of Boris Johnson thanking the public for their sacrifice.

The stunt from Led By Donkeys, comes after Boris Johnson’s chief adviser travelled more than 260 miles during the coronavirus lockdown to Durham in the northeast of England, to be near his family.

Video from the campaign van has clips such as Boris Johnson saying: “So many millions and millions of people across the country have been doing the right thing.”

In another, the Prime Minister says: “You should not be meeting family members who do not live in your home.”
