The ‘Cheeky Girls’, Monica and Gabriela Irimia, appeared as guests on BBC’s ‘This Week’ political talk show on Thursday to give their views on EU immigration from Romania and Bulgaria.

The beautiful twins, from Cluj-Napoca in Transylvania, Romania, were joined host Andrew Neil and regular commentators Alan Johnson and Michael Portillo on the couch to discuss British fears of an invasion of benefit-seekers from their homeland.

The sexy pop stars, whose hits include ‘Touch my Bum’ pointed out Romanians and other EU migrants come to the UK to work and improve their lives, not claim benefits, and in many take the jobs that ‘British people do not fancy doing’.Movie All Is Lost (2013)

Monica said that it is not the fault of EU citizens that people are better off on benefits in Britain and can earn more money by not working.

Former Home Secretary Alan Johnson refuted her accusation that people are better off on benefits, claiming that job seekers allowance was worth much less that the ‘average wage’.

But plucky Monica bravely stood up to the politician arguing that housing benefits means that people on benefits ‘do not have to pay rent’, making them better off. Andrew Neil agreed, but Johnson sidestepped the question.

Michael Portillo agreed with Monica’s view and said that the UK ‘needs immigration’ and the young people it brings to the country, who will later support the aging population.

Monica could not hide her delight, smiling and giving the thumbs up.

The Cheeky Girls articulated their argument against experienced politicians extremely well and proved that there is more than meets the eye to multi-million selling pop duo.

Watch the full interview:

Earlier this week, the Romanian Foreign Minister Titus Corlatean accused British MP’s of political point-scoring over fears that a large number of migrant workers from Romania and Bulgaria will arrive when restrictions on working in the UK are relaxed next year.

Mr Corlatean told Sky News’:  “It is always very easy to win supplementary points, votes, electoral advantages using the already classic topic of migration.

“This is of course, from our perspective at least, fundamentally wrong.

“Romanians and Bulgarians are not immigrants”, he added, ”they are EU members exercising their rights, not criminals.”

Majestic College offer special packages for EU students. They also have a number of employers looking for staff right now and are willing to employ Bulgarians and Romanians.
