Romanian migration myth

The much-feared “Romanian invasion” of the UK has failed to materialise, according to the Romanian Ambassador to London Dr Ion Jinga.

Writing in the Huffington Post, the Ambassador based his argument on concrete data from the Romanian Consulate. The statistics for January showed no increase in the services requested by Romanian nationals compared with the same period in 2013.

However Ambassador Jinga noted that there had been an increase in reports of hostility towards Romanian nationals, which he ascribed the anti-immigration climate generated mainly by the “misguided and misleading” debate in the tabloid media.
