This campaign was launched in response to the British government considering a campaign to turn off Romanians and other Europeans from moving to England.

Here's a campaign you may have seen play out over the last few months. This humorous online campaign was launched in response to the British government considering a "Please don't come to Britiain, you won't like it here" campaign aimed towards Romanians and other Europeans. Romania's leading newspaper, Gândul, were behind the work.

The work consisted of a series of fantastic online posters (see below) that were release across Facebook.  As these exploded, Gândul started allowing all Romanians to write their own headlines and brought in a system whereby Romanians could offer spare beds and sofas to visiting Brits, and companies could offer them job vacancies.
