News / BRAIN DRAIN ON POLAND [101]

“In many Western countries and countries such as Japan, a post-industrial slow in the population growth has occurred. Populations are ageing. This means that over coming decades, the numbers of old people will continue to rise whilst the numbers of the young continue to decline. It is the first time in Human history that the age distribution of nations has threatened to become long-term top-heavy. What this means is a change in the entire way that society is structured. The young will have an excess of elders, rather than the old having an excess of youth. [...] Many companies and governments are feeling the increasing pressure of having larger numbers of pensioners. More and more people are drawing pensions, and fewer and fewer will be paying into pension schemes. Economists have long predicted that in modern countries, all pension schemes will collapse. It is not possible for one worker to pay for the pensions of three, or hardly even two, retired elders. Governments such as Britain's have implemented a gradual increase of the age of retirement to try and curb the collapse of pension schemes and to try to dam the exodus of workers from employment to retirement.”

News / Poland's Growth Fastest in 10 Years [95]

my dad told me that Polish pilots would fly out in conditions British pilots wouldn't, thick fog and really bad weather

Having seen the Polish driving skills, gung ho attitude and road conditions, I'm sure the quote above would be quite true.

Life / Shopping in Tri-City [46]

Hey I've just noticed this thread and funnily enough I met the owners of this new shop "London Style" at the weekend in Soho in Sopot. They were telling that they are opening at the beginning of Dec and that they will be stocking designer brands for men and women. Such as YSL, Desiel, Moschino, Replay, Roxy, Timberland, Camel Active, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfinger and more. I'm proper excited as thus far I've been shopping in Klif and Baltic centrum. Rock on.

Life / Freemasons in Poland [41]

Actually the "freemasons" are exceptionally powerful, google the P2 lodge "propaganda due", the Banker Roberto Cavalli otherwise known as God's banker was murdered because of his missappropriation of freemason funds. If you know anything about operation "stay behind" then the picture is pretty frightening. These people do rule the roost. Also check out "operation Gladio" on wikipedia.

Well you are correct Kil in saying individual failure on behlf of the courier, however, what about the fact the disks weren't encrpted, that isn't the couriers fault. Several misakes have contributed to a large scale calamity.

Real Estate / How do I look for property in the Sopot area? [45]

I've a friend who ha brought property in one of the towns surrouding the Tri-City, there are lots of new build flats to buy off-plan as well as "pod klutch" (s'excuse my Polish) which means ready to move in. One cost approximately £14k one year ago and is now valued at around £29k. Which for one year is a healthy increase. The rental yield is minimal.

However, the property will in the short term continue to appreciate rapidly till until 2012 when the Euro is introduced.
Due to market nerves from the 2012 largescale monetary upheavel, the housing market will probably dip, and then level at a correct European median. The factors which are key to Polands continued growth and future economic prosperity are; an economically liberal government with low buisness taxes, as well as socially progressive social reforms. The buisness stimulus for this progressive buisness statergy, is impart being both stimulated and advertised by the future Euro 2012, where both international and European money will be pumped in directly and through loans to the government.

The current generation from 20 to 30 year old are in much greater contact through family friends, as well as media to the western experience. The knowledge glean from the west when amalgamated with the eastern promise will pay large dividens. The crux of this is the double taxtion laws, which although now change still have several retrospective year's application. This prevents many young Poles from returning to Poland. Once this issue as Tusk has recently promised, is sorted and stopped: many Ples will be able to lift their self imposed financial exile.

Life / Shopping in Tri-City [46]

Bubba you know quite a bit about the shopping malarky I've noticed quite a lot of fake gear in one of the centrums in Gydnia, lots of Louis Vuttion and Channel things. We had a woman swearing to us that the sunglasses she was selling were all genuining. And to be straight I've seen better hooky gear in greece.

I just hope that this place is the real deal, the owners seem actually really down to earth, (despite being obviously very drunk). I'm off to Poznan so I'm going to check out whats hapening down that way :)

HA HA XMAS shopping in Warsaw..hurray. check it out. See I knew these Poles knew their stuff.

High fashion is increasingly visible on the streets of Warsaw as more and more respected international clothing brands open stores in the Polish capital.

UK, Ireland / Are polish pupils harming native british childrens education? [280]

Last time I saw a bus load of British school kids they were too busy mugging a grandma to even notice the Polish kids, sitting at the rear planning their "non toilet cleaning" futures.

Noimmigration if indeed you are a law student, I'm sure when you graduate you'll get a great job as a "accident claim's" specialist. However, people of you're caliber often become Politicians, perhaps the BNP would like you as their new spokesman.

Life / Pensions for immigrants [11]

A 50 year old Polish woman I know has told me that she's going to move to England for the 5 years to work. After this time she will return to Poland and claim a UK state pension (approx £80 a week).

E-mail that to the Daily Mail and you'll probably be given your own column.

Life / rules and regulation for marrying a polish girl [68]

This is a really amusing thread, nothing like a good ***** (in both meanings) is there folks?

Mr.Rohit, just a few enquiries have you met her parents?
Do you enjoy drinking vodka neat?
Do you speak Polish?
What do your family make of all this?

I only ask because if you are serious you need to consider the above as well as many other factors.

This is a really amusing thread, nothing like a good ***** (in both meanings) is there folks?

They ***** out the word B I T C H . Seriously admin what if this was pet thread and I was talking about my female *****. Censoring words doesn't really acheive anything.

Life / Help with getting a NIP....nightmare! [16]

I would approach your director of studies and ask for their assistance. If they refuse and dillydally, then you will know that they are cheating bastards. If however they are helpful then you'll know they are fair and organized. And in truth only really doing what the should do, which is help you. You are after their employee. If they become difficult, my advice would be to start looking for an alternative. Double check what your contract with the school stipulates. Again people will help translate any Polish text you have on the translation thread.

Life / Living in Poland without working? - Your opinion [63]

65-70sqm flat in most cities, new build around £100,000 to £110,000, new build. Reasonable car £8000. TV, Phone, internet, household bills, £50pcm, food for 2 people £200 pcm. Petrol £40 to £50 pcm. Cinema, spa and sauna, eating out, museums £100. Golf membership for life £1000. The UK and Poland healthcare systems are interchangable. thats to say you get free medical treatment in the Poland, if you are an EU citizen. Private healthcare is available and is not exceptionally expensive (relative to UK costs).

I think you could live well for for £800 to £1000 a month. For two people. So if you own your property, no morgage an income of £10,000 to £12,000 a year would keep you and your partner quite happily.

I live in poland and my wife and I live off around £1000 a month and thats is fine for us.

Life / Living in Poland without working? - Your opinion [63]

Thanks for explaining my figures ;) If you want to live out of town you coud build a house for £100,000 just depends what kinda house and how much the land costs. A colleague of mine works with a Swedish firm and they make prefabricated houses. These house sell well on the Swedish market and are not the crap prefab builds of the 1960's. So a good option would be buying some land and building one of these houses.

News / A Pole to start the HIV AIDS epidemic? [52]

Having read this thread I feel like trying to dig my own eyes out with a desert fork. The HUGE amount of vitriolic complete rhubarb that is dispayed here just goes to show what a nasty creepy waste of time the Human being is. The sooner a disease wipes out every miserable human being the better. Then maybe the earth will have a chance to heal itself and perhaps a better kinda creature might evolve.
