and Nigel Farage's dodgy statistics From Worcester News Sir N Taylor avers that there has been "little factual rebuttal of Mr Farage's observations" regarding the impact coach swingpack of treating HIV patients on the NHS during the first televised leaders' debate.
Farage said that there had been 7,000 diagnoses of HIV in the last year, with 60% of those for non British nationals and that it cost 25,000 per year to treat a patient. Those statistics have been repeatedly demonstrated to be somewhat of an exaggeration. It is a truism that there are lies, damned lies, and then statistics. Fact: The NHS, at that time, did not record nationality however 44.8% of those patients diagnosed were born abroad, of course being born abroad does not preclude against British citizenship. Once again, Farage exaggerated. Fact: 74% of the patients in a same sex relationship contracted HIV in the UK; the equivalent figure amongst heterosexual patients is 57%. One could infer from Farage's statements that he were alleging that a large number of infected immigrants were seeking treatment. Finally, the Terence Higgins Trust state that the average annual cost of treating someone with HIV is somewhere between 8,000 coach factory outlet online and 12,000. Is it any wonder then that there are those of us who treat UKIP politicians with the same contempt we treat all other politicians. As for tuberculosis, the NHS reported that there were 8,751 cases in 2012 and have recently announced an 11.5M project to completely eradicate tuberculosis from the UK.
N Taylor can of course verify the statistics for coach bags clearance himself coach premium outlet online using a far more reliable source than FaragePublic Health England. It is a far better British characteristic to be helpful and supportive of others less well off than ourselves than to blame immigrants for, say, traffic congestion.
