Is the article is really about privacy concerning your origins, it's not about healthcare, yet most of the comments are about migrants (who are probably criminals according to some of you) sponging or using frontline services???
Privacy. Privacy of everyone. So don't ask me if I'm white British,afro caribbean,Indian, Asian, male, female next time. Just take everyone to be sexless and possibly from planet Earth for absolutely everything: schooling, job interview, healthcare, and any other occasion when an authority thinks it has the right to know where I'm from. That way we never know who is doing what, where and when.
Hell, yeh, let's just not know anything about anyone, then UK can get back the control it's already lost.
