Benefits Britain here we come! Fears as migrant flood begins
express.co.uk ^ | January 1, 2014 | Giles Sheldrick

BRITAIN will today be hit by the first wave of Romanian and Bulgarian migrants keen to take advantage of our gen­erous taxpayer-funded benefits.

At least 5,000 are expected in the first week alone.

Visa restrictions on low-skilled nationals from the two eastern European countries ended at midnight. The first sold-out flight from Romania is due to land at 7.40am today.

Coach operators say that thousands have bought tickets for as little as £50.

The first coaches leave the capital Bucharest tomorrow for the 1,600-mile journey, arriving in London on Saturday.

One operator predicted that nearly 1,000 a day could come here over the next seven days.

The Daily Express has found evidence of an exodus from hundreds of impoverished communities across Romania.

I may consider moving to Romania. Sounds like it will soon be a better place to live, after all the human trash flows to the UK.

I’ve considered Canada, but I suspect it’s much like the US.

Human trash? That’s a bit over the top. I thought people on this site were all for others trying to improve themselves. I don’t blame these folk one little bit. I blame the ludicrous immmigration policies of socialist europeans.

Exposed: What they DIDN’T tell you about new wave of migrants heading for booming Britain

Bulgarians and Romanians will have the same rights as other EU citizens to live and work throughout Europe, but Britain is likely to be seen as more attractive than other countries struggling to make an economic comeback
The Home Office-funded review – obtained by The Mail on Sunday – also suggests that the UK could lose out financially if low-paid Bulgarians and Romanians drive out Poles on higher wages, who pay more tax
Worryingly, the report also raises the prospect of tensions between Bulgarians and Romanians on one side and the first wave of Eastern European immigrants on the other

Bulgarians and Romanians will flock to Britain in far greater numbers than forecast as our economy races ahead of the rest of Europe, a secret report predicts.

After immigration controls are lifted this week, Britons could find their jobs are squeezed in some areas – while community tensions could rise as the new wave of migrants fight for work with other Eastern Europeans who have been settled in Britain for a decade, it suggests.

The Home Office-funded review – obtained by The Mail on Sunday – also suggests that the UK could lose out financially if low-paid Bulgarians and Romanians drive out Poles on higher wages, who pay more tax.

From Wednesday, Bulgarians and Romanians, known as A2 migrants, will have the same rights as other EU citizens to live and work throughout Europe, but Britain is likely to be seen as more attractive than other countries struggling to make an economic comeback.

Gypsies come from an ingrained culture where thieving from settled communities is encouraged, and squatting down to take a dump in the middle of the pavement is considered normal behaviour. What would you call such people?

Insanity. Of course, no more so than the US’ own open borders.

Thieving and taking a dump in the street... sounds like the cultural forerunner to Occupy Wall Street.

“I’ve considered Canada, but I suspect it’s much like the US.”

No way. Both the fishing and beer is 10 times better. And the Scots in the Ontario bush really know how to party. Just avoid the liberal cities and everything is fine.

Offer subsidies to attract low wage workers with the result that wages remain low. What dupes the British taxpayers are...oh, wait...

Yep. They are European equivalent of the American trailer trash by accounts of Europeans that I have talked to.

Having dealt with gypsies in Dublin once, I can tell you - they’re much, much worse than anything in a trailer camp.

Yeah sure, but that's hardly their fault is it? Besides, most of them come to the UK to work. Actually, most mexicans come to the US to work. The real question you need to be asking is "why are we bringing huge numbers of people in to do menial low-pay jobs, when there are millions of our own citizens unemployed". Of course, if you are a conservative, you know the answer to that. People in the UK (and US) dont want to do those hard working, low paying jobs. Why should they, when our respective governments are supplying them with all the bread and circuses that they need?

This is simply a question of human motivation. Most people will take the easiest path most of the time. If we, as a society, set up conditions where it pays people not to work, then most of them won't. I dont know why liberals and socialists find this such a difficult concept to grasp. There's plenty of academic and anecdotal evidence to back it up.

Not all eastern europeans are gypsies. Not all romanians are gypsies.

For what it's worth, here is a very different take on what's happening:

The immigration invasion that never was. No extra flights, empty seats

My own guess is that we'll end up somewhere between the extremes represented in these two articles - probably a bit closer to this one than the Express version.
