“This is absolutely the right decision. With 2.5 million people unemployed, it would be absurd to open our borders yet again to more unskilled workers. “

Notes to Editors:

In 2006, the population of Romanian and Bulgarians nationals was just under 30,000. In the year ending December 2010, this figure had risen to over 130,000.
