British employers have declared their support for the protest in London against the discriminatory attitude towards Bulgarians and Romanians in the UK.

The news was announced on Darik radio by Emil Rusanov, publisher of the Bulgarian newspaper 'Budilnik' (Alarm clock) and one of the organizers of the protest.

Rusanov explained that Britain's discrimination against Bulgarians and Romanians was essentially a political insinuation towards the two countries.

The protest in front of PM David Cameron's office at Downing Street 10, London started at 03:00 p.m. EET.

A recent report has predicted that at least 385,000 Romanians and Bulgarians will move to Britain over the next five years.

According to The Telegraph, the report by the Democracy Institute warns that the British Government is to blame for the “mess” of migration describing the flood of new arrivals as a 'self-inflicted economic migrant own goal.'

This month British Prime Minister David Cameron announced a crackdown on so-called "benefit tourism", citing fears over mass immigration from Bulgaria and Romania.

Under the proposed series of measures new migrants will not get out-of-work benefits for the first three months and payments will be stopped after six months unless they have a "genuine" chance of a job.

But many officials, including Cameron's ministers, believe the government should go further than that.

Madoods - The unemployment rate is not extremely high. It's one of the lowest in the EU. The EU does not pay companies to take on foreign labour in preference to Brits, that's something you dreamed? Look up the definition of slavery - then perhaps realise that comparing paid labour to the horrific offences of the slave trade is more than a tad hysterical.

When the wealthy elite of Britain was involved in colonizing the rest of the world and taking slaves, the ordinary British citizen was pretty much a slave too. What is happening now is that UK workers are being fired and replaced with cheap overseas labour by the wealthy elite. The unemployment rate in the UK is extremely high as a result, with UK jobs advertised overseas, UK companies being paid by the EU to take on foreign labour in preference to Britons and British graduates being forced to stack supermarket shelves for benefits. If the foreign workforce ever leaves, the British will be re-employed at the lower rate which will put them back into slavery by the wealthy elite. At least the foreign workers have another country to escape to

Well it looks like UK is turning back to taking slaves, this is what Cameron and his extremist supporters are doing, making the conditions for modern day slaves. Unbelievable how naive people are to these extremists who's only goal is to light the fires of fear and hate of the people because of the inefficiency of their own government.
