Work it out

"Home Secretary John Reid is to outline plans to restrict Bulgarian and Romanian people's right to work in the UK when they join the EU next year... Britain cannot stop EU citizens from moving here, but restricting the right to employment is expected to act as a brake on initial immigration volumes."

Hang on. Is it just me, or does this seem a bit daft? If you can’t stop people moving into a country – and therefore necessarily making demands on the country’s resources - why would you want to stop them working legally when they get there? Eh???? Has EVERYONE gone entirely mad?
