The Rogarians Are Coming: Gypsy King Florin Cioaba’s State Visit

As the Express reports thousands of Romanians and Bulgarians are massed at the border ready to invade.

Garlic alone will not keep them away, much less the Express’s decision to give away camper vans in its competitions.

The paper’s campaign to talk the UK down, talk crime up is not working. As the paper says: “Thousands of us will be hading to Britain says gypsy king.”

The regent is Florin Cioaba and while his visit to the UK will be seen as a state occasion by some, the Express is wary.

Cioaba is addressing a 3,000-strong crowd of his countrymen at a festival in Romania.
Wearing a crown and holding a sceptre, he tells us: “Thousands of Roma will leave for western Europe looking for jobs and a better life.

“The next two years will be critical for Europe because it will need to absorb the high number of immigrants coming from Romania and Bulgaria.”

The Rogarians are coming. As Cioaba says: “Everybody hates the gypsies, even though not all of us are criminals and thieves.”

The Express will judge the validity of that claim for itself. But by then it might be too late.

Sir Andrew Green of MigrationWatch UK is unimpressed. Says he: “It is unacceptable that thousands of gypsies should come here to live off the welfare state.”

And we see common ground between them and us. They want to work, as King Florin says. Sir Andrew agrees.

Says former Home Office Minister Ann Widdecombe: “We already have a problem with the thousands of lawful immigrants from Eastern Europe who are putting a strain on our infrastructure.” To say nothing of tending our gardens, looking after our children as au pairs and putting up the shelves in our converted garage.

But do we want the UK to change? Do we want the UK to run into France? As the paper notes: “In France colourfully dressed young women beg for money in almost every town square.”

Althogh some of them may be French…
