Tories Want Delay On Allow Bulgarians And Romanians Into The Uk On 1St January 2014

Recommended Posts

Whatever the pros/cons of restricting the right of nationals of these two countries to come to the UK, it's farcical that such a policy change is being considered(assuming the report is true) barely six weeks prior to the start. This change in circumstances has been looming for a long time, the Government is approaching this (and other things) in a completely slapdash manner.

It highlights the utter incompetence, tomfoolery and pure self interest at the very core of government policy making.

Quite contrary to the national interest.

Hasn't it always been like that? I can't think of a single thing any Govt has done for me unless it was something to help themselves.

I'd say it's a token effort of protest in order for the government to be able to say 'well, we did protest about it' when the mob start getting angry.

Is this a stupid question.......but who actually runs this country?...I often wonder if our politicians do, or do they act as a representative for another greater power? :unsure:

This government does not define policy.

It simply reacts to the media.

It's really the Daily Mails of this world that are now defining government policy.

This is likely to continue unless there is a major crisis, in which case the government will be forced to lead rather than follow.

To be fair to Dave, this is arguably the best strategy if he is interested in getting re-elected. Not good for the long term future of the country though.

Edit : I bet secretly the Tories are delighted that they have managed to make it this far into what was considered the term "not to win" without significant incident.

Sad but true.

I can't help but think that we can do better than this though. I've little in common politically with Russell Brand, but his point about not voting struck a chord.

138,000 members of Dave's party, and on a downward trend. Probably less than the number who take an interest in a middle of the road football team.

In the absence of anything greater there is only one game in town at the moment.

Whether or not Dave needs to go through with a referendum on Europe to try to recover his standing in the polls.

My guess is that they still have the chance for an out on this even though they will look pretty silly if they do. But if they pledge it as part of the election manifesto they will have little choice.

Really, I remember seeing that picture of Nick Clegg with the pledge not to increase tuition fees, one week after getting elected they increased tuition fees.

Dave has had three years to deal with the Bulgarian / Romanian issue but only decides to get involved when a major donor defects to UKIP and UKIP have a higher % of the potential votes than his mates the LibDems. Dave could still have a referendum BEFORE the election but fears the outcome so will not do it.

Scotland fears the outcome but they are going ahead with it......not giving the people their right to vote is not a democracy.....little people not as important as power, money, big business their profits and well-being...plebs don't count. :unsure:

I really really hope that all the Roma beggars settle in Hampstead Heath or some nice little champagne socialist enclave and brings house prices in the area right down.

January 2014, Daily Mail has a team of reporters desperately looking for new Romanian and Bulgarian immigrants in cold wet and hostile Britain whilst the Romanians and Bulgarians are sunning themselves on the Costas.

The Romanians are already here, have been for a while, quite a few of their cars around my way. They have the same style number plates as us, which has resulted in at least one UK car owner getting the parking fine intended for a Romanian car!
