According to The People newspaper (which we can take with a pinch of salt); over 500,000 E/Europeans are now trying to get to the UK, before (as they think) the borders close. If true; it would seem at least they have confidence in our economic future !     8)

What seems to be overlooked is the fact that the UK had foreigners coming here to work long before we joined the EU. The reason why we didn't have many Eastern Europeans here was because they were locked up behind the Iron Curtain by their Soviet minders!

They love our generous benefits system too. Few, if any, of our European chums are so generous with immigrants. Even benefits for their own citizens are severely limited & stop abruptly when the limit is reached, leaving people homeless in a lot of cases.
