David Blunkett says there are 200,000 Roma here already - with a fair number in Sheffield. The local Asian population are mounting 'counselling' patrols to teach them not to defaecate in the street or steal the street furniture. If Blunkett is trying to recapture votes for Labour - the same labour that opened the gates wide in the first place, and changed the face of Britain for ever - he's as much of an incompetent and ignorant fantasist now as he was in office.
Many of Sheffield's Asians must now be contemplating voting for UKIP next May. And if tens of thousands of new migrants from eastern Europe arrive next Spring, each one will gift UKIP at least another vote.
The UK is not the only favoured destination of the Roma and Sinti; a German eBay seller recently included this poignant comment in his item description:-
"Romanian burglar gangs
(grandfather, grandmother, father, mother and children) currently drive
around the area. The papers say their poverty must be understood if one
is broken into. I wonder therefore if I should leave the door open so
they don't have to work too hard. If I am robbed I have nothing to offer
here. Bid now and act before the Romanians do."
