Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Who's talking about moving them?

They are economically unsound and therefore should move themselves on penalty of being made to drown. And if they don't find a house, well they should work more to earn more until they a)can move in after a repossession kicks someone out b) die of cold.

That would make so much more sense.

Actually, although it's largely unrelated, all this rightwards move (aka screw you) of the UK reminds me of a comparison I've been able to make since early afternoon (when I learnt of the UK costs).

Apparently some NHS hospitals will deliver one in vitro to couples who need it (and even for that you need to have tried naturally for a loooooong time), and after that you are left with private clinics charging £4000 to 6000.

Right. In France you get 4 chances for free (resetting to 4 allowed with every birth), then it's around 4000€ if you don't get an allowance for more (which happens relatively often when there are reasons to believe it may work).

The shame is that you have to be live close to the hospital or clinic so that, even though we will still be covered by Sécurité Sociale, we'll probably have to pay the damn £4000 to 6000. Because we're moving just too early.

How has everything got so expensive in the UK? Twice the price you pay in France in the rare occasions when you actually need to pay at all? Harsh.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
