Our leaders tell us that we shouldn’t be worried about a rise in immigration from Romania and Bulgaria. They also say they can’t estimate how many Romanians and Bulgarians will come here.

    I’m in Spain at the moment and I was reading the local rag. An article claimed that after a while unemployment benefit just ended….no more. All the more reason for them flocking to the UK.
