Politicians 'manipulating public opinion,' says Bulgarian ambassador

David Cameron has defended plans to toughen welfare rules for EU migrants, saying he was sending a "clear message" to people that the UK was not a "soft touch" for claiming benefits.

He said he shared public concerns about the end of work restrictions on Bulgarians and Romanians next month.

Bulgarian Ambassador to the UK, Konstantin Dimitrov, said he believed politicians and the media were manipulating public opinion.
