    Part of the issues comes from allowing foreign students to take the places in British medical schools before returning home after graduating, or returning home after working for a short time in the NHS. The NHS would have a lot of problems solved by expanding the number of places on medical courses, restricting the places to British citizens, and placing contractual requirements on graduates to work in the NHS; Britain has a surplus of talented students who are not given the opportunity.
    I agree with this.

    Presumably due to sheer cost they couldn't expand the number of places. International students pay I think around £10,000 per year on fees, which actually isn't as much as I thought it would be. Quite often thought they get sponsored by their respective governments on the proviso they return after graduation. Same system as army/navy.

    He wanted to take it at the convention as a consensus candidate, wouldn't be the first time that sort of thing has happened, but with the certainty Trump will get the delegates and being declared presumptive nominee there is no point going on now

    Fair enough. This campaign must have cost him a lot of money though.

    The policy works for foreign government who see the boost but the policy does not work for the British students with straight A*s who are forced to read an alternative degree. There should be legislation to introduce disincentives to stop British universities chasing the extra money from foreign students bring when the legacy of foreign students is a shortage of trained medical personnel.

    You conveniently forget the highest manufacturing productivity in the G7, improved labour productivity, real terms spending increase on the NHS, higher literacy rates, lower death rates, lower infant mortality rates, the improved access to cheap mortgages, the introduction of democracy to trade unions, the decrease in financial inequality, and the return to profitability of companies; her government oversaw lots of good.

    It will have cost him little in monetary terms, it will be almost entirely funded be private donors, his health on the other hand will likely have taken a bit of a hit

    Cheap mortgages I thought came because of the low interest rates from 2008?
    Decrease in financial inequality?
    Highest manufacturing productivity? Than Germany?

    Where are the figures you have to back this up?

    The cheap mortgages came during the credit boom when banks were allowed to issue mortgages following deregulation in the 1980s, and on page 269 of Twentieth Century Britain: Economic, Cultural, and Social Change 2011 there is a section on productivity, but I have found an online source where it states on page 16 Britain led the way in rate of growth of productivity.

    I don't think it'll be as close as the polls predict. People tend to return to their usual voting habits on the day of an election.
