ID cards for northerners launched

NEW compulsory ID cards for northerners will allow the government to track their movements.

A growing north-south divide has seen immigrants from as far afield as Rotherham and Burnley heading south in search of work, housing and free health care.

Health secretary Jeremy Hunt said: “These people need to know that NHS does not stand for Northern Health Service.

“Northerners may still travel freely in the South, but must maintain their accents at all time and not offer anyone a ‘barm cake’.”
