@alantravis40 Yes, but if needs must, I guess they'll have to compromise. Someone's got to pluck those Turkeys. Maybe gov would allow in more non-Europeans (e.g. Syrian refugees) if it had greater control over migration from Europe. Or perhaps I'm being naive

@alantravis40 My point is that the pool of industrious and determined people crying out for a chance to better their lives extends beyond Bulgaria and Romania, so if cheap EU labour dries up, couldn't gov just change policy and employ non-Europeans?

Could someone please explain why cheap migrant labour always has to come from the EU? Aren't there refugees from Syria, Eritrea etc who would give their eye teeth to come to UK and do jobs like this?

@JoeTwyman @YouGov Agree. The £40 billion figure sounds like a lot but according to the NAO the UK spends ~£20 billion a year just dealing with the health impacts of air pollution.
