New powers called Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) which come into operation next April will be deployed to stop gangs of homeless Eastern Europeans squatting around some of the country’s most famous landmarks and transport hubs.

I don't recall Cameron insisting on a cap/ban on Brits buying property/moving to Bulgaria.

Perhaps I missed it.

Isn't there a whole forum dedicated to people sold building sites in Bulgaria?

No legal way they're going to change this.

All looks like election starting to me.

LDs know they won't impact their guardianesque core-vote by staying pro-EU workforce mobility - but they can get some 'keeping nasty party under control' narrative out of it.

Tories know they can't change anything using Parliament right now, they'll engineer a big fight later next year on it all to force LDs and Labour to vote against.

Labour are going to be wrong side of argument whatever happens - they completely miscalculated impact on core-vote with Blair/Brown immigration policies.

Whilst this charade is going on - nobody is fixing the real impact of these changes on schools and doctors surgeries in places like Lincolnshire.

Rosen Plevneliev told the Observer Britain's image as a global power would be harmed if it moved towards what he described as isolation and nationalism.

...

Meanwhile, Business Secretary Vince Cable has told the BBC a possible cap of 75,000 on EU migrants would not happen.

He echoed comments in the Sunday Times by Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg, who said "talk of arbitrary caps on the number of EU nationals is as pointless as it is distracting"

That's the opinions of 3 individuals so let the UK have a vote on it.

Bulgaria: a Magnet for British Expats

July 4, 2013,

The British Embassy in Bulgaria estimates that there are currently 3,000 British expats living in Bulgaria and that 650 (over 20 per cent of them) of them are permanently resident in the region of Veliko Tarnovo and Gabrovo. This makes it the most popular region in Bulgaria for permanent living.

For perspective.

Perhaps there should be some sort of equivalence formula. It needn't be exactly one for one but something that's practical and fully takes into account the interests of the people of both countries - while the UK is still in the eu.

Apparently there are already at least 35,000 already living in the UK according to 2009 figures.

That's the UK figures and they're often a bit wonky. Bulgaria claims 70,000 - 80,000 already living in the UK.

It seems like the UK already has a full quota on any equivalence basis.

http://

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulgarian_migration_to_the_United_Kingdom

Bulgarians in the United Kingdom include people from Bulgaria who have migrated to the United Kingdom and their descendents. The number of Bulgarian-born people resident in the UK has risen from 5,351 at the time of the 2001 Census to an estimated 35,000 in 2009.

..

..

Estimates by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Bulgaria put the number of Bulgarians in the UK at 70,000–80,000.[4] However, the Office for National Statistics estimates that, in 2009, 35,000 Bulgarian-born people were resident in the UK

Who cares what Rosen Plevneliev thinks, and has anyone even heard of him before?

He's just trying to get a little facetime to make himself look more important, that's all.

I'll trade you 5 Hungarian cabbage pickers for 2 UK BTL'ers, that sort of thing?

Does this apply to a terraced house in Tottenham where the owner has popped to the shops and returns to find the locks changed??

Id like to personally welcome the Bulgarians and Romanys to the country, with an A4 printed list of addresses for every mainstream politician in Britain.

Starting with the Lib Dems. And first on the list would be this individual.

I know a couple bought a huge house and plot for £3k off ebay ... they sub-let the council house back in Lanarkshire, live out there on peanuts and fly back here every now and again for their doctor's appointments and to collect their medication (both are on long-term sick - she had a botched operation for back pain and he's a chronic fat B**strd who has had two heart attacks and is bipolar as well).

Personally I'd love to see the plug pulled on lowlife like this, as much as discouraging hard-working Bulgarians from coming here (it's the Roma the moral panic is really about).

Apparently property in Sofia Bulgaria's capital is about 1/10 th of the price per sq metre compared to London property. That's not a huge surprise seeing as London is in a manipulated bubble and apparently Sofia prices have already had a correction of about 40%. It does offer some perspective on the relative average property prices.

Maybe the average property price in Bulgaria is in general about 1/5 th of the UK's average property price?

Apparently Bulgarian GDP per capita is about 1/5 th of the UK's.

So potential ability to buy a house seems about similar or even likely in the average Bulgarian's favour compared to UK people especially in the capitals.

Interestingly from the link below Bulgaria has about a 97% (in 2011) home ownership figure compared to the UK's 69% (in 2002) and declining and in that respect they seem to be far better off than people living in the UK

I expect a lot of their domestic mortgages are foreign currency. UK speculators have to jump some hurdles.

Depending on the lender used the maximum Loan to Value available is:
  • Houses: 85%, (Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna, Bourgas, Rousse, Pleven, Stara Zagora, Veliko Tarnovo, & Blagoevgrad only)

    80%. Elsewhere except the above towns.

  • Flats 60%
  • Land 60% (Development Land)

Fears of an influx of Bulgarian and Romanian immigrants into the United Kingdom as of the beginning of the new year have prompted Labour MPs to count arrivals at Luton Airport.

Labour MP Keith Vaz has said he will be at Luton Airport early on New Year's Day to check how many Romanians arrive in the UK to get work.

Vaz said he and Conservative MP Mark Reckless will be at the airport in time for the 7.40am flight from Bucharest.

Have no fears - UK government and opposition in action :lol:

New Year's Day - a typical day to travel :rolleyes:
