Kenneth Clark in Roumania (I'm sooo embarrassed)

(Photo: EVZ.ro) I simply do not get it. Kenneth Clarke says there's no particular labour law shutting out Roumanians when there is and it's well known, too - it's aimed at both Roumanians AND Bulgarians.

The term for Rroma in the Uk is either 'gypsy' or 'Roumanian' because, lilke everywhere else, it is rare for the press to make a difference... [Lire la suite]

Well after the last joyous post, I'm afraid I have to apologise for giving false news.
