If it is all hunky dory over the channel why did another 630,000 EU citizens come to the UK to live last year? Surely not for the weather or cheap housing

Probably people have noticed that the Eurozone has not done as well as the UK. Only this week Spain, France and Italy etc. Were warned about budgetary control. In fact Spain's public sector debt rose to 99.7% last year. To control this there has to be 'more Europe' as it is the only way to control a single currency

Spain has had it's fair share of immigration. It is the choice for most Romanians,who are the highest ethnic group from the EU. Plenty of illegal immigration from Latin America as well as North Africa.
large scale immigration from the UK has had an effect on Southern Spain. Pressure on the infrastructure is one and it helped to push house prices up. That doesn't mean that they haven't benefited as well.
These are some of the negatives regarding EU membership but there many advantages, which in the end outweigh the disadvantages.
Seen the latest benefit figures for foreigners in UK Mark? Not to mention the tax credits. Spain may have it's fair share of immigration but they don't actually get any benefits do they..
