But the BNP have read their copy of the Mail too, and have also issued a press release. The differences in the three articles are minimal.
Littlejohn: Fast-tracking the Tarmacing community on the NHS
Mail: Want to see a GP? Gipsies come first as NHS tells doctors that travellers must be seen at once
BNP: Romany Gypsies in Britain Given Better NHS Service than British People
As the Mail article was discussed here previously, here's some of the points Littlejohn and the BNP make.
the NHS has decided to give priority to gipsies in hospitals and GP surgeries.BNP:
At least half of all Gypsies and Travellers in Britain are Romany in origin and are officially placed above indigenous British people in a range of National Health Services.Littlejohn:
gipsies will be allocated a full 20 minutes with a doctor and allowed to bring their extended family into the waiting room. The average length of a normal appointment, always assuming you can get one, is between five and ten minutes.BNP:
Gypsies must be given 20 minute consultations (in comparison to native British peoples’ five or ten minutes) and must be allowed to bring relatives into the consulting rooms;Littlejohn:
A Department of Health statement said it was 'fast-tracking' what it calls 'members of the mobile community' because they have difficulty accessing services.BNP:
Gypsies must be “fast tracked” when being provided with NHS services.Littlejohn (in relating the story of an correspondent who apparently had to wait for an appointment):
a gipsy...would have been ushered to the top of the list.BNP:
[Gypsies] must be seen before any other patients, even if the indigenous patients have been there earlier or have prior appointments;Littlejohn:
Now, I can understand that this policy may have arisen from the most noble of intentions. But this has nothing to do with the milk of human kindness and owes everything to the venomous bile of the 'diversity' industry, which takes sadistic pleasure in persecuting the taxpaying majority.BNP:
The NHS document tries to justify this blatant anti-British policy by claiming that Gypsies suffer from greater health problems than indigenous British people.Spot the difference? It's not the first time in the past week a Mail columnist and the BNP seem to be in agreement. And given events in Belfast it's really hard to see what the Mail hopes to achieve by stoking anti-Gypsy sentiment by misrepresenting these guidelines in the way it has.
Incidentally, the only mention Littlejohn gives to the racist attacks on the Romaian families in Belfast is as an aside in a piece attacking Martin McGuinness.
