/ Why can't unemployed Polish people on benefits just leave UK and go home please?
The fact is that many Poles abuse the system - they come to the UK with no language.
I think I am right in saying that if you are unemployed for more than six months and a national of another EU country, you are meant to return there.
In theory, unemployed citizens of EU countries are not meant to be a financial burden to the one they are living in. Therefore if they are not working, they only have six months to find it.
Whether this is enforced or not, it's hard to say but I am thinking it isn't.
I think this was how France was able to deport a bunch of Romanians who were not working.
