Due to EU rules change, 29 million Bulgarians, Romanians can move to England next year, and the gypsy population is gearing up to do so. But they recognize they’ll have to move fast, before the welfare state runs out of other people’s money. Says one gypsy, already ensconced in England with his wife and children, of the new wave of immigrants:
‘But there will be a day when your country is full up, when you cannot afford to give benefits to any more people from Europe and the rest of the world, too. They hope to get there before that moment happens.’
Sounds rather like our own country, except our “gypsies” are home-grown.
