Romanian And Bulgarian Migrants Immediately Leave UK Due To High Rail Prices


Nearly all of the Romanian and Bulgarian migrants who arrived in the UK on 1 January are now turning around and leaving due to the increase in rail fares, HuffPost UK Comedy has learned.

Some described it as "the last straw after meeting Keith Vaz".

In a poll asking the new migrants to name their reason for immediately choosing to leave the UK, 80% cited the latest rise in rail fares, followed by 'realising the UK coalition government is just horrible' (72%), 'the forthcoming series of Celebrity Big Brother' (64%) and 'Jeremy Clarkson' (40%).

Many of the migrants are now unfortunately stranded in the UK, however, due to being unable to afford the train journey to their nearest airport.
