Kidney has beens!

If the NHS can afford the "high cost of [HIV] treatment and care" for African immigrants who are "often asylum seekers or refugees", why can't it afford to treat people with advanced kidney cancer?

The African immigrants have no right to claim NHS treatment, especially on that scale.

Indeed, they cost us £16000 a year each apparently. I wonder how many have decent jobs and pay that much in taxes? Near zero I imagine and many will get other benefits too.

Only in the UK do we put up with this nonsense, other countrieas have more sense, eg:

Because the NHS (seventh wonder of the world) spends all the taxpayers' money it should be spending on the latter on the former?
