Can I just point, the news since even before the new year have been all about the 'floods' of immigrants that were to come from Bulgaria/Romania. These stories have mostly been reported in a negative way. There was always someone in these stories saying something along the lines 'I'm not a racist, but...'. And yet, when the BBC runs a story about 600,000 French people in London, no one bats an eyelid. Just a thought.
