Ambassador Ion Jinga: Romanians who wanted to come to Great Britain have done it already

The Romanians took advantage of a British legal flaw on immigration and came to work in Great Britain, playing a vital role in the preparations for the    London 2012 Olympic Games, the ‘Daily Mail’ quoted Romanian Ambassador Ion Jinga as saying. “The Romanians who wanted to come to Great Britain have done it already” (…). There is always a possibility to find a work place, even if there are restrictions, and the solution is to declare yourself self-employed, and many Romanians have done that,” the ambassador pointed out, adding that “many Romanians work in the construction sector”. “This is how your Olympic village was built last year,” the ambassador stated. ‘The Daily Mail’ writes that Olympic Delivery Authority data appear to confirm ambassador’s statements. In late December 2011, 8,465 worked at the Olympic park and village, of whom only 60 were British. At 8 pc, Romanians made the bulk of the foreign workers. Yesterday’s Guardian online reported that Romanians living in Great Britain feel the pressure of negative immigration-related  publicity which abounds in the British press before the lifting of labour market restrictions due in December 2013.
