Incurable TB virus discovered in India
Every time you land at Heathrow Airport, you wonder if British health authorities really care about the British people. If you are bringing a dog, a cat or any other animal into the country, the said animal – provided it can be legally allowed into the country – will be usually left in quarantine until it is proven that it does not carry deadly diseases, many of which are difficult to detect.
When it comes to human beings, many precautions are put aside and, when faced with the unthinkable, we hear the usual chorus of ‘lessons will be learned’. Given the obvious link to the Subcontinent, this is yet another reason to be on our toes when it comes to immigration and the necessary measures that should be in place to avoid importing a deadly disease into the United Kingdom.
I mention India as I could mention any other country in the world and I do this to alley the fears of the usual culprits before they start making the also usual kind of accusations regarding racism et cetera et cetera. Let us remember that many of the aforementioned culprits are the very same people that burden us with excessive legislation and ridiculous rules regarding health and safety in the United Kingdom, but conveniently forget about things that really matter.
