The 45,000

The Sunday Times reports Home Office concerns that 45,000 "undesirable" migrants could legally arrive in the UK from Bulgaria (population 8m) and Romania (population 21m) when they join the EU next year.

How many Turkish migrants will the Home Office identify as "undesirable" when Turkey (population 71m) joins the EU?

"I have no doubt that if bringing Turkey in [to the EU] is the prize, it is worth fighting" - Jack Straw, former Foreign Secretary.
