Stupid is as stupid does
We were looking at the benefits provision at the time and how it compares to France and Germany. The latter two pretty much gave eastern Europeans sweet FA, so whilst there is some truth in the idea that the UK was a honeypot, that attractiveness has precisely zero to do with any EU ‘control’.

As I recall, there was widespread disbelief on the continent at what the UK government was doing, even from those immigrant loving utopias such as Sweden and the Netherlands.
