Romanian Immigration To Britain Is 'helping Us Very Much' Because It Cuts Our Benefits Queue, Says The Country's President

Recommended Posts

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2745149/Romanian-immigration-Britain-helping-cuts-dole-queues-says-country-s-president.html

Romanian immigration is a good thing because it reduces unemployment – in Romania, the country’s president has said.

Traian Basescu said the number of jobless Romanians leaving for Britain was ‘helping us very much’.

Mr Basescu attempted to ease concerns over the number of immigrants arriving in the UK. He said many would return to Romania when wages in Eastern Europe started to match those in Britain.

He said: ‘We would be happy to have them back – probably as soon as the wages from Romania be more close to wages in the UK, or in France or in Italy or in Spain.’

The article does also indicate a novel approach to making Britain less attractive to immigrants - having Keith Vaz there to greet them at the airport.

Perhaps 'Keith Vaz' should be rolled out to Calais to sort out the problems there.

So hes saying hes happy to have them back once wages in the UK fall to match Romanian levels.I mean i think he means Romanian wages rise but we all know the truth.

Working age welfare bill of £100 billion and we import low skilled labour who can then claim in work benefits.Incredible.

I wonder when these Romanians will realise the cost of accommodation is five times that of Romania.

I think that is the reason they are coming here. Work a couple of years, save up money, then buy a house cash back home.

You know its funny. The last few months, the 'Romanian invasion' has been pretty subdued...a few here, a few there, you'd always see a few in town, but no shops like the poles and Lithuanians or vast amounts of LT or PL reg plats.

But today in town, they were everywhere. Everywhere I tell you!

Perhaps enjoying one last decent Balkan summer before a life on benefits/in some packaging factory/of crime?

I predict a BIG shortage of school places in coming years.

"We've got to import these migrants because currently we aren't generating enough tax to pay for our ageing population"

Right now the East Europeans who arrived in the mid of the last decade are having children, getting sick and relocating their elderly parents here. Its a natural process which has been ignored by the political classes. They insist on insanely repeating their mistakes.

The "ageing population" they talk about are the migrant who have now settled and in doing so become a net drain on resources.

Schools have been mentioned but the NHS is ignored apart from the occasional admission of spiralling birth rates.

The political classes are ignore that the population is increasing by approximately two hundred and fifty thousand a year yet they make no allowance of the increase services needed.

UKIP seems the only party will to address the reality of the situation.

Wages in Romania are £420 a month on average, 75% less than in the UK

Maybe so but house prices in Rumania seem to be low as well. According to the average UK house prices on some web sites sometimes mentioned by the mail Rumanian house prices could be maybe 75% less as well. The mail doesn't mention that.

A slight increase in property prices in Romania was recorded in the first quarter of 2013. The average cost of housing across the country now stands at €45,000, within Bucharest - more than €60,000, and in the center of the Romanian capital - €80,000, portal Romania-insider reports, citing research of Eurobank Property Services' Residential Property Index

Not with children and housing benefits it isn't. Work part time / self employed, have greatly or entirely subsidised housing, education, health etc and a pretty hefty tax credit enhanced income. If smart, save that up and when returning to Romania the savings accrued will pay for a nice house at 1/10th the UK price.
