ROMANIANS preparing to swamp Britain next year are insulting British towns and cities and making racist comments about fellow immigrants on the internet.
Many would-be settlers criticise Britain, targeting the likes of Scotland, London and Liverpool, while insisting they do not want to live near Indians, Arabs, Chinese or black people.
The slurs were made on a popular Romanian chat forum in a discussion about the pros and cons of relocating to Britain when border rules are relaxed on January 1 next year.
One poster on Romani Online, aptly named Skis, said he and his family were keen to move to Scotland for winter sports in the Highlands but his comments took a bitter racist twist: "We do not want that cosmopolitan crowd of Indians, Arabs, Chinese, etc. We want something more quiet."
Mutu, another user, described a “high concentration” of “pickaninny” (a derogatory term for black children) in Slough, Berkshire.
He added: “They already have their neighbourhoods. I see on the street, just like home, large laundry on the balcony, colourful skirts, gold teeth, begging gangs of gypsy boys stealing from shops and everything.”
ValiB said Leicester was “full of Indians” and Mickyroman was put off a move to north London because of the Asian population: “I learned it is full of Pakistanis and Indians and do not know what to expect from these nations.”
The comments infuriated Gerard Batten, UKIP’s home affairs spokesman. The MEP said: “It is ironic that when people in Britain voice concerns over mass immigration to the UK they often get tarnished with the accusation of being xenophobic.
“Britain prides itself on being a welcoming and tolerant society and it is only right that we demand people coming to live here adhere to those values.
"Yet here are people wanting to come to Britain clearly not wanting to integrate within our society, based upon their prejudices.
"This demonstrates why migration on a large scale flies in the face of integration.
“In the past the UK Government has moved people from community to community to forge separate groups to prevent social unrest between cultures.
"What you end up with are intolerant clusters of people who cannot live side by side, leading to segregation and the ghettoisation of society.”
Other members of the messageboard have embarked on a lively debate over the best areas to live, the state benefits on offer and their, at times warped, perception of British life.
When several users discussed moving to Scotland, Albea responded: “If you work in Scotland is perfectly OK. Is closer to Norway and Iceland, benefit from the same infrastructure as the rest of the UK and sometimes, if you’re more in the north, you can see the aurora borealis.”
He then went on to sneer: “To learn the language, I think it would be a problem. By the way, forgive my ignorance: Why would anyone want to emigrate to Scotland?”
Albea also told fellow posters not to reveal which football team they support, to remain indoors as much as possible and to make sure they do not react to homosexuals displaying affection in public.
He added: “For those who want to settle there and do not need to work, I strongly recommend the countryside. Every hamlet in England is more pleasant that the best resort in Romania. Do not try to make friends because English aren’t friendly.”
Andrada, who already lives here, urged others to join her in Eastbourne which she described as “God’s waiting room”, an apparent reference to its elderly population. She said it was the ideal area for employment in “nursing, the NHS and city tours”.
Another described the perks of the climate on the south coast but said employment was hard to come by and claimed his community in Hastings was riddled with drug addicts.
“South coast is the most ‘hot’,” he said. “It is normal to see palm trees and other Mediterranean trees in parks and people’s yards.
“For example, the city where I live is the city with the least rainfall in England, Hastings, but on the other hand is the city with the most drug addicts per head of population.”
Responding to a query about Liverpool, the poster added: “I’ve been there but I’ve not heard any good.”
Dorina M, who is considering moving to Salford or Manchester with her unemployed husband, inquired about where to send her 10-year-old to school. Others asked about benefits.
BulgaruBogdan said: “I’m going to get in the UK early next year and I will definitely be working legally but if at some point you have the legal right to receive benefit, of course, I will not refuse.”
