As you know, millions of Romanians will be coming our way next year and we can be assured they will add much needed multiculturalist gaiety to British national life. They are already are..
Shock figures show that the Metropolitan Police made 27,725 arrests of Romanians over the past five years for offences including rape and murder. This is despite just 68,000 Romanians living here at present – a figure set to soar when Britain has to open its borders next January under an EU directive. The crime statistics undermine reassurances from Romanian officials that the UK has nothing to fear from the lowering of border controls. Tory MP Priti Patel said: “These figures show why, with 29 million Romanians and Bulgarians gaining unrestricted access to the UK, more needs to be done to control immigration and to safeguard the British public from foreign criminals.
Well, Priti, you are right in one sense and simultaneously deluded in another. Of course we should control immigration and of course we should stop ALL Romanians and Bulgarians coming here but we can’t. They are fellow EU nations and their citizens have a perfect legal right to come here … and the only way to stop this is to LEAVE the EU. I remind you that the Conservatives, Lib-Dems and Labour are COMMITTED to keeping us in Europe so I guess the Met are going to very busy in time to come !
