LETTERS: Why give refugees asylum when NHS waiting lists are so long?

Have your say

I just read the headlines in today’s Metro, NHS patients “could go to France for operations” to try to cut waiting lists.

Next page, Yvette Cooper says, “we can’t wait, give 10,000 asylum right now.

Where is the logic?

We cannot afford to cut waiting lists in hospitals, but should give asylum to so many people.
