Personally, I believe that the EU’s policy of free migration across Europe is good for Europe economically. It encourages greater competition and drives down inflation in labor costs. My own experience of Poles, Bulgarians and Rumanians is that they are prepared to work very hard indeed and are willing to take jobs that the indigenous population regard as beneath them.

It will be the millennials across Europe who will feel the greatest competition from the Bulgarians & Romanians, following the lifting of EU immigration restrictions in January, 2014.

How should responsible Governments respond to the political and social pressures of immigration? Any thoughts?
