Yesterday, the remaining transitional
controls on the free movement of Romanians

self-described fans of the free market came out against the free
movement of people. Matthew Feeney explains that the political
rhetoric in the U.K. surrounding Bulgarian and Romanian migration

would implement anti-capitalist policies hostile to the free
movement of people if they were given free rein.
