A quick correction. The EU Settlement Scheme referenced in an earlier post was "opened up" to health and care staff "to test the system prior to wider launch" initially UNTIL Friday 21 December.

This from a goverment letter published 07 December which mapped out preparations for a 'No Deal' scenario in March 2019. What are their priorities. Conceeding that there will be significant disruption at Folkestone and Dover for at least six months, make preparations to build a six week stockpile of medicine's, or single out EU nationals supporting the health service?

That is the wrong signal to send out but consistent with May's approach - "yes, we value your qualifications, skills, and contribution to our health service ... but if you could just make one final contribution in the approach to Christmas and pay to register your status ... that would be in OUR best interests".

Matt Hancock is the current Health Secretary who recently boasted that his department has become the world's biggest customer for refrigerators. What an utter bellend.
