I must say, everytime i hear a brit say that he/she finds poland a better place to live than the UK, i think to myself, "WTF is wrong with that island?"
That is one hell of a sweeping generalisation. Could you not imagine many Brits in Poland getting paid well above avergae wages for just teaching English and living a comparative highlife in comparison to the average Pole? Youre only listening to a few opinions of Brits on this forum the majority have no intention what so ever of leaving Britian. I think you need to do some reading here yourself seeing as youre always advising me too, if PF is your source for such generalisations you really need step into the real world son.
80% of the Brits in Poland are here with Polish wives and girlfriends, its also the reason why we dominate this Forum 1,000,000 Poles emmigrating to the UK will have that affect you see.
When moving to another country to live you need stay positive, I personally cant imagine many of the Brits that have relocated over here staying for the long term. It grinds you down after a while and you said yourself:
Having lived in canada nearly my whole life, I couldn't imagine moving to poland.
Thats interesting as i remember a post written by you that in order to understand Poles you need to live in Poland, yet you claim to be an expert on all issues and youve only lived here for what 2 years? and you were probably only a baby then - what a joke.
Tell you what wait a few years and lets see if you ever complain about the Canadian government, tax or immigration or anything else that you dont agree with. Then you'll understand and be on even par.
