Why don’t we all move to Poland, Romania and Bulgaria next year?
Seriously, why don’t we all up sticks, sell our homes, hand in our resignations at work, warn our kids’ teachers and then pack our bags and move lock, stock and barrel to Eastern Europe?
I’ll tell you why not. Because life is better here. Because there are more opportunities to get on, to make a future for yourself and your family. Because there are more jobs here in Britain and, crucially, more jobs that pay well, with even our lowest wage jobs paying more than an average salary in Warsaw, Bucharest or Sofia.
