Britain is facing a new wave of Eastern European immigration which will put British workers’ jobs at risk, experts have warned.
Twenty nine million Bulgarians and Romanians will gain the right to live and work unrestricted in Britain in 2014 under European “freedom of movement” rules.
Last night forecasters said it could lead to a significant number of new arrivals, in the same way as when Poland and other Eastern European countries gained the same rights in 2004, with the scale likely to be increased by the economic crisis gripping the rest of Europe. And a Government report was disclosed to show concern among official advisers that the British labour market will suffer “adverse effects” as a result.
Can the government prevent it? Of course it can. It simply needs to tell the EU that restrictions will not be lifted and then enforce that policy. Will it do so? I very much doubt it. “Adverse effects” to labour markets not only don’t affect the ruling class but it increases the power of the state because of the demands that something must be done after the act. The incentives for politicians are completely opposed to our own.
At least when the Labour regime allowed us to be flooded most recently it was by Poles who look like us, are Christian and relatively civilised compared to others from Eastern Europe. Romania and Bulgaria have plenty of undesirables who we really don’t want here, and who be coming from economies that are nowhere near as wealthy as Poland’s.
