Quite clearly its easy to generalise about Bulgarians or English people , but it doesn't really tell the story . For example , many Bulgarians are used to working on the land because they were brought up with it , in England most of the farmhands got laid off years ago as agriculture became increasingly mechanised and business orientated , and the travellers that used to do seasonal work became marginalised into outcasts of soceity . Many , if not most , of the Bulgarians coming/going to the UK only intend to work there for a few months to get some cash and return to their families in Bulgaria , so they don't mind putting up with a few hardships for a while , like sharing rooms etc. I don't know Lincolnshire , but i've taken the coach from London to Bulgaria a few times , and the other passengers (who are mostly Bulgarian) aren't all really happy about working in England , some are disallusioned , some are returning after a break to visit their families , but all of them complain about the high cost of living in the UK , and how easy it is to see your wages disappear . Speaking of which , those of you that slag off benefit scroungers , just how much do you think that they get ? I'd like to see you trying to live on that kind of pittance , you'ld be hungry after two days ! And bear in mind that many of the UK's unemployed were actually working until they recently lost their jobs , not to mention the school and university leavers that really do want a job , but having gained some qualifications have set their sights a little higher than working in the fields of Lincolnshire or serving in McMurders .
