he interviewed LECH WALESA .. if thats the stereotypicial person you are referring to with a moustache :-S and on a personal note i wouldnt think disrespecting a person that helped overcome communism in Poland and was president of the country as being stereotypicial as that would be rather disrespectful dont you think????

Someone has a serious sense of humour failure! :)

Please provide relevant statistical evidence to support your 'statement of fact' as you call it. :)

well I dont wish to be rude, but as we were discussing stereotyping Polish people I believe that Kilkline was joking about the man in the moustache.. and was well of aware of who he was. So your response seemed a tad defensive.. anyway its up to you. Have a nice weekend. BTW.. I know Lech Walesa did a lot in the political arena, but he is really as lecherous as was made out on this programme.. he just kept talking about women all the time.. or was that just Michael Palin's interpretation?? answers on a postcard please.

he didnt really go indepth in discussion regarding women .. only saying "good food wine and women" to palin and quoting churchill

and visibly wanting to read his daily papers

I dont wish to be rude,

I have yet to see you rude ..... !!!!

Have a nice weekend

Just looked at the 2:30 mins of Michael Palin footage someone posted earlier. I find it bizarre that it's all about the Catholic church. Non-Poles are getting an impression that Poland is a wacky 12th century country where religion is still the only thing that matters. I think many Western Europeans find Poland laughable for this reason...

(For example, when the German press (was it Der Spiegel?) learnt that Poland would be co-hosting the 2012 Euro football, they said no doubt the high point of the opening ceremony will be Holy Mass... Ha Ha!!! )

I think the church is to blame for so much of Poland's problems today... (Feel free to discuss, if this is not a question that challenges your brains too much).

He hasn't done anything funny since Monty Python.
