Romania teases UK in media campaign
Romania has launched a media campaign to poke fun at British anxiety about a potential influx of Romanian job-seekers next year.
Called 'Why don't you come over?', it plays up the attractions of Romania over Britain and claims: "Half of our women look like Kate. The other half, like her sister."
The campaign teases the British with the words: "We may not like Britain, but you'll love Romania."
It notes that Prince Charles bought a house in Romania in 2005. He is known to be a big fan of Romania's Transylvania region and its rural traditions.
The campaign also boasts that "our draft beer is less expensive than your bottled water".
Another ad points out that BBC motoring show Top Gear said Romania's beautiful Transfagarasan Highway was "the best road in the world".
The pro-Romania campaign is a response to British media reports that the UK government is considering negative ads about Britain to put off migrants.
UK curbs on workers from Bulgaria and Romania are set to be lifted next year.

They may poke fun but at the end of the day the UK cannot cope with another influx we do not have the jobs, housing or benefits. Sign this petition to restrict Bulgarian and Romanians from entering the UK: <a href="http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/41492" rel='nofollow'>http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/41492</a>
I already know of a family of fourteen bulgarians coming over as the man is gonna marry an english woman here.this isnt quirkie is it?.
Yeah we'll see how much they dislike our country when they're here. It's gonna happen, they know, we know it, and it doesn't matter if they say it's not because it is. If our government is so concerned about it happening, why don't they stop it? They're the only ones who can.
If their own country is that good, why don't they stay there??. Then everyone will be happy..................
