"Should the NHS allow gipsies to jump the queue?"
This is one of the online poll questions the Daily Mail have running today. Only slightly more amusing is how people are voting... It's been doing the rounds on Twitter all morning to great effect.
The poll follows an article by Richard Littlejohn in the paper this morning, up to his usual standard, ridiculing and blaming another minority group for the country's woes (this time in the NHS). It is well documented that Gypsies like the ones he is attacking have precarious living conditions and limited opportunities for work and education. The churches to their credit have highlighted the discrimination they undergo right across Europe.
Seeing as its Refugee Week, or just because its Friday, please do something positive and go and vote "yes" and check out the current poll results...hilarious!. What do you reckon for tomorrow's headline (which is World Refugee Day)? "Daily Mail readers back priority for gipsies in healthcare"? Well, one can dream...
