Commenting article: UK Migrant Scaremongering Puts at Risk New Ties with EU*

The Independent

Government scaremongering about an imminent influx of Bulgarian and Romanian migrants could jeopardize David Cameron's attempt to renegotiate a new relationship with Europe, Bulgaria's Foreign Minister warned today.

Nikolai Mladenov said the way in which the debate about Bulgarians coming to live and work in Britain was going it would "definitely dampen the enthusiasm" for co-operation between the two countries.

Question Time, broadcast by the BBC on Thursday 31st Jan (last Thursday) saw Baroness Warsi, a UK cabinet minister, upon being directly challenged on this matter by David Dimbleby, completely and utterly deny that any such moves had ever been discussed in cabinet let alone any decisions made. Check it out for yourselves. When politicians want to dodge a question or cant answer for whatever reason they do not give such total rebuttal as this minister did. So, all rumour?, another case of the media stirring it up? watch the program and judge for yourself.

Yes at first the issue was created by the populist politicians and trash newspapers/sites similar to the case of lately pumping up ordinary news seeking to discredit BB. Yes, that all was a yellow trash news. But, the problem with Cameron is his own mouth blabbering for a change in the EU including reforming the immigration law and the open worker policy for the Eu citizens. If he would have openly rejected such statements would have been one thing, but him directly promoting a reform in that direction has put him deep into the mud and there is no going back from it, however other ministers try to dodge the blunt.
