Immigration from Romania and Bulgaria

"Romanian or Bulgarian?You won't like it here".
Will they though?And should they be discouraged from coming?
Since Romania and Bulgaria become full member states of the EU at the end of the year it seems to me that there's little the UK Government can do about it.
In any case the situation is certainly rather different from the last mass immigration in this country by the Poles and Czechs in 2004.The economy is no longer booming for a start.Back then, "only three countries opened their borders. This time, all of the 25 EU states will lift Labour market restriction."
Also,Romania certainly(and to a lesser extent Bulgaria)have much closer cultural and linguistic ties with other EU countries than they do with the UK.

Over to you.
