Gav , i've worked on the building site for most of my life , as a self-employed joiner and i've had many a months out of work due to an influx of EU workers , as have a lot of my mates , half of em ar'nt even skilled but get work because there cheap , and i've seen it at first hand , and wait till the Romanians and Bulgarians come , if there cheap , they'll take jobs before British people , A+E and hospitals full and they hav'nt paid a dime into the state , but if the goverment say its right  ,  it must be...............

If they're here and not paying their way that is a problem I completely agree mate.

 

But if they're here legally, working legally and as such paying in to the system and gaining necessary skills/qualifications, then there is no problem. 

Most of them that have settled will be paying tax/ insurance , but if a british worker is sat at home and an EU worker with the same skills is keeping him out of work , then to me its still wrong , just my view...................

Anybody have a figure for how many British ex-pats are both living and working abroad?

Looking at the BBC website about 5.5 million.
