Bags packed waiting on the border!
« on: April 17, 2016, 06:39:19 AM »
When Romania joined the Eu and the people of Romania were allowed to visit/work or what ever in the EU they had their bags packed and were sat at the border 11.59 ready to leave the following day :)

Looks like the EU has stuck its finger up to Holland as end of July Ukraine has visa free travel to Europe, you can be sure millions will go missing or get lost in the EU the following day along with millions of Turks.

I remember living in Portsmouth several streets were full of kabab shops everyone knowing they employed illegals who lived up stairs. Often they would get raided by the police. Looks like half of Ukraine will now get "lost" during their visit to the EU  :laugh:

Its funny how the EU a shinning example of democracy and standards can even contemplate dealing with Ukraine or Turkey..

But then I guess it all comes down to  :money:

It means 2 things for the Ukrainian dating industry,

1. Cheapo guys with not so much cash will be able to offer OLDER Ukrainian women a ticket to come visit him in Europe saving on costs.. (Of course the women will not say no)

2. Young guys searching for a young Ukrainian women , those days are finished for sure. Most young women only wish to travel, now thats possible who needs some old fart to travel with.

It is not just Ukraine.  By June Turkish Citizens will be allowed Visa free travel to Schengen countries -

This will happen because if it does not then expect 250K migrants exporting themselves to the EU in July...

There is another big crisis just waiting to happen! You have all the Oil rich countries, Saudi , Jordan, UA, Kuwait to name a few!

What do they produce? Oil.. Camel markets and camel shit!  So sometime in the not to distant future there will be no demand for oil , sometime in the future oil will just be old fashioned just like a Russian marriage agency. No body will need it.

So when the oil dries up , who wants to buy camels and camel shit?? Nobody!! Do these countries have any other industries? Of course not.

So where will millions of folk be heading?

Yes you got it.. The EU  :chuckle: Probably camel shit included..

Steveboy, that was the 'fear' ... the reality was somewhat different .. The Romanians and Bulgarians had special restrictions put on them by several EU states - incl. the UK - they needed work permits and couldn't just tip up and claim benefits.. I well remember the news channels waiting and being disappointed...

Not only that, but it seems Ukrainians asked for Asylum in Netherlands, got denied and were sent home with $2500 travel costs. Seems that was more than what they were paid, so their numbers swelled until the Netherlands scrapped this arrangement for Ukraine.

It would be interesting to know from where and whom they were seeking asylum in Ukraine and the percentage granted

Themselves, and denied 100% as Netherlands said Ukraine is a safe country to live in.

The problem is :
Evgeny earns $2000/year. The sending-home money is Eur-2500....

So, if he is frugal with travel-costs, he can earn a whole year-salary in 2-3 weeks work.
(until NL wised up and reduced the travel-cost bonus for Ukr. people.)

Im glad Im out of the EU.. The UK has changed considerably over the last 10 years even. Were visiting London next month and I'm already not looking forward to it. London is not the place it used to be :(

10/20 years its just going to be a flea pit, only the wealthy will live there who can afford a gated or secure accommodation. Anyone else with just have to live in the hell hole, it will be like the city in the classic movie "Blade Runner"

I think the best option today is to live in International waters on a small island or a nice big boat away from all the shit that goes on in this planet :travel:
