The UK’s approach to Bulgarian and Romanian immigration makes me sick with shame

The government is telling us that the coming Romanians and Bulgarians are ill-educated, parasitic benefit tourists. These people deserve better

What a mean, tight-wad, mendacious, xenophobic and bad-mannered government we have. I’m rather embarrassed by it, especially as Daughter has Romanian chums and I have a Bulgarian friend. All right, only one, but I miss her.

She lived here for a few years, worked as a farm labourer and cleaner full-time (the only jobs allowed), kept accounts, paid tax, learned to speak English fluently, went to university in the evenings, paid for her studies herself, passed a BSc and MSc with distinction, all the time sending money home to support her mother and grandmother, who could not have managed without it, and then she went home again.
