London, February 22nd. A small group of Romanian expatriates living in London protest against Channel 4's programme Here Come the Romanians, which shows the trials and tribulations of poverty-stricken Romanian Gypsies immigrating to the UK to seek work and get onto the British benefits system. They say the programme exacerbates the anti-immigrant stereotype of Romanians, ignoring the many highly qualified, professionals and hard-working skilled workers contibuting to the UK's economy and its taxes.
