According to the figures that were revealed by the government, there are over 2,00,000 citizens from Romania and Bulgaria who are working in the UK for the first time ever, making the total number of workers from the EU nations reaching around 2.1 million.
Compared to the previous year, there are around 3,00,000 more residents from EU nations in the Britain which also represents an increase of 16%.
The total number of the Bulgarians and the Romanians reaches at the total of 2,19,000 which an increase of 30,000 from the previous year.
Previously, the Bulgarian and Romanian citizens could only work in the UK in limited sets of circumstances but in the year January 2014 restrictions were lifted and they gained the complete access to the UK’s employment market.
The total number of workers from all eight former communist nations that had joined the EU in the year 2014 is just below a million and up by 2,00,000 in the gap of two years.
The statistics are showing that how unlikely the UK government is to meet its objective of decreasing the immigration to tens of thousands under the rules of EU border.
Yesterday, UK’s PM has launched his EU renegotiation and send a letter to the European Council President, Donald Tusk, saying that the EU requires to work with Britain for minimizing the immigration and it does not mentioned anything about the UK taking back the control of its own borders.
The UKIP leader, Nigel Farage said that these figures is showing how in the EU, migration in the UK is hopelessly out of control. He also said that the warnings about permitting citizens of Romania and Bulgaria were ignored and that is the reason we are now seeing a surge from these nations.
