AIBU to think that this woman is taking the bloody piss?

I very much doubt she will be sent back. Who is paying her legal fees is what I would like to know?

Are we a soft touch or just a lovely compassionate country with enough resources for all?

FreudianSlipper Sat 02-Jul-11 22:48:30

we are a compassionate country, not likely to remain as compassionate with this government but i am very glad we are. we have certainly done our share of robbing and destroying other countries, and what is that saying oh yes we pay for our fathers sins, so if you do feel cheated, like we are being robbed then see it as pay back and you might not get so worked up about it

What a hideous hideous article. Prurience and racism all rolled into one.

Shame on you for starting this thread OP.

BlimmingCheek Sat 02-Jul-11 22:50:13

Eh? Exactly which countries did we destroy?

BlimmingCheek Sat 02-Jul-11 22:51:01

What rot Duchesse. Are you saying this did not happen?

FreudianSlipper Sat 02-Jul-11 22:52:41

read up on your history of the british empire

my ds needed to go to A&E in France. He was seen immediately (would have been at least a 4 hour wait here) and was treated and back at the caravan within 2 hours, all bandaged up.

And why shouldn't the OP start the thread? It's a subject worth considering don't you think? Where does it all end? The woman clearly came here under false pretences and with robbing our Health service in mind. And that's ok is it? Is it ok just for her or is it ok for just anyone who feels like it?

Well the British Empire has in the past looted and patronised many countries, such as India...I think that was what Freudian slipper was referring to...

BlimmingCheek Sat 02-Jul-11 22:54:03

No time Freudian. Why don't you just tell me?

BornInAfrica Sat 02-Jul-11 22:54:59

What the fuck has the history of the British Empire got to do with this? Fuck all, that's what. Either deal with the matter at hand or STFU - history lesson is what we don't need here and why? Because it's pissing history whereas this abuse of our health system is current and if allowed to continue will affect us all.

duchesse Sat 02-Jul-11 22:55:18

Spoiling for a fight much, OP?

BlimmingCheek Sat 02-Jul-11 22:55:35

CQrrrneee - well that's because we are part of the EU and you had your EHIC card. Slightly different in cost from 6 months maternity care and a c-section what?

BlimmingCheek Sat 02-Jul-11 22:57:06

BornInAfrica - right on.

Makes me boak when idiots bring up stuff that happened 100s of years ago to excuse people taking the piss of this country today.

GypsyMoth Sat 02-Jul-11 22:58:18

and she cant go back why

cos all her family are already over here?

InWithTheITCrowd Sat 02-Jul-11 22:58:48

EACH baby cost £70 in formula and nappies?? Where are they buying them from!?

BlimmingCheek Sat 02-Jul-11 22:59:01

Her husband is not though hmm.

InWithTheITCrowd Sat 02-Jul-11 22:59:03

£70 a week* that should have said

GypsyMoth Sat 02-Jul-11 22:59:29

borninafrica.....i think our NHS will also be history one day

iMemoo Sat 02-Jul-11 23:00:46

I refuse to even read any article printed in the Sun. It's a paper for racists, bigots and those with a low i.q.

BornInAfrica Sat 02-Jul-11 23:01:00

I'm sure you're right Tiffany - and having lived in a country with only the most basic free health care and having to have very expensive personal medical insurance for yourself I can assure you this is NOT something to look forward to.

ApocalypseCheeseToastie Sat 02-Jul-11 23:01:27

Meh, England takes the piss out of all the poor countries anyways....... have you been in Primark lately op ? Do you feel any guilt ?

FreudianSlipper Sat 02-Jul-11 23:01:52

well the british empire controlled many countries around the world, killed many people who stood in our way, took control of their resources, took away their wealth and historical artifacts, and imposed our religious beliefs and culture on them

sad you have the time to read such trash and rant about something that is so insignificant and not read up about actual history that has shaped the world and our country

Duchesse do you even know what prurience means btw? Quite odd to associate that with this story hmm.

Don't use big words if you don't know what they mean [pats Duchesse's head].
