MIGRANTS to Europe have ruined what was a perfectly-functioning near paradise, they have been told.
According to ECB president Mario Draghi, Europe had achieved full employment, eliminated poverty and was just about to move to a three-day week before the migrants arrived and ruined it all.
He said: “The moment the first migrants arrived in Greece, they caused a previously perfectly stable financial system to retroactively collapse eight years ago, reducing it to the beggar of Europe.
“As they moved through the Balkans they caused nationalistic hatreds to arise among ethnic groups which had previously had nothing but love for one another, and in Austria they similarly aroused hitherto unthinkable racism among its 97 per cent white population.
“Finally they arrived in Germany and somehow turned the happy-go-lucky nation into stern penny-pinchers who would stop at nothing to protect BMW prices.
“It is no wonder Britain is considering leaving the EU, which it never did before because of its tolerant, sophisticated and chiefly bilingual people.”
