The Daily Mail last night published a new ‘UK to be invaded by Romanians’ scare story, of the kind which looks set to appear on pretty much a daily basis until Romania moves en bloc to the UK on January 1st next year.
As usual, it isn’t the simplistic story that makes for the best reading. No, the real gems are below the line, in the comments section. This is where you come across the real Voice of Britain.
Here are a few of our faves. (Remember: these people have the vote):
We are going to have every criminal in Eastern Europe planning to come to the uk. How will our overstretched police force deal with our own when some of Europes finest come to our once great country. We need a general election to vote these idiots out!

Let’s face it, if you lived in Bulgaria, Romania or Poland wouldn’t you want out? Anywhere would be better, but Benefits Britain would be best! *shakes head at the loss of this country*

I must be psychic – in a vision, I saw that none of these new European immigrants will be living anywhere near our MPs, rather they’ll be dumped on the rest of us to execute their merry criminal ways. What the hell has happened to this country, we are not asked our opinion on gay weddings, overwhelming influxes of foreigners, what to do about greedy and venal politicians, how to treat corrupt and greedy bankers – and they laughingly tell us Britain is a democracy! And don’t tell me we get a say when we vote people into power, the minute they have access to the trough, in goes their snouts and out goes integrity!

The UK is quickly turning into a toilet, a dumping ground for all of the useless detritus currently slithering around Eastern Europe, and beyond. They don’t want them, so they’re obviously only to happy to shovel them into our country, just like they did in 2004. Lower the wages, eradicate our culture, and completely swamp us with idiots who have no desire to assimilate, just syphon us for everything they can get. Get ready for the next crime wave.

English Volunteer Force will blockade Dover port, This cannot/will not be allowed to happen, Infrastructure will collapse, Jobs will go to them if/when there is jobs available, Crime will shoot through the roof, Recovery will be delayed for years, Maybe forever! It’s about time this country stopped surrendering, EVF.

The Romanian and Bulgarian governments (like Poland and others before them) will actively encourage (and sponsor) their people to come here. It makes sound economic sense for them to do so. Once here immigrants will send money back to their home country thereby helping their economy, but having the reverse effect on ours. For this reason China, India, Pakistan, Brazil and other countries have actively sponsored and encouraged ‘illegals’ to come here knowing that each one will send monies back home. This is organised state crime and is worth billions a year, which Britain loses and is often payed for by all taxpayers by way of benefits to the immigrants.

And following on the heels of Romania and Bulgaria are Moldova and Albania, yet another two eastern European countries, with Turkey yet another contender but who isn’t even geographically in Europe! As we know that neither the Con/Lab/Libs haven’t any intention of us exiting the EU in the near or distant future, until we do, hopefully via UKIP, Mr Cameron should seek not only to limit the number of entrants to Britian from some of these countries, as stated above, but the size of the countries should also be taken into account. Germany, France, Spain etc are all vastly bigger than Britain and can accommodate more that us, and we are already full to bursting.
