According to the concerned public bodies and much of the media, migrants are the bane of the NHS.

The regulation of organisations and markets is a costly affair. State regulation currently costs the UK economy somewhere in the region of £30bn every year. Employment laws, health and safety regulations and financial compliance legislation provide the bulk of these costs.
Our collective breath was taken away by the bravery of the women who guarded Lee Rigby’s body, the soldier murdered in Woolwich on 22nd May, especially Ingrid Loyau-Kennett who engaged directly with the killers, bloody weapons still held tight in their hands.
It is admirable that the Secretary of State for Education wants to place history back at the centre of the national curriculum. It is similarly admirable that he wants to see it taught in a coherent and where possible chronological way which can reflect how events and topics meaningfully interrelate, rather than leaving the student unprepared in the face of an imposing and confusing compendium of mismatched material.
