a) Judging by the tone and length of your reply, the wind-up merchant has been wound up by his own thread. What a pity.
Wound up in the sense of a closure or in the emotional sense??
I think the only person getting their knickers in a knot is you. I'm waiting for the physical threats again Harry - go easy this time though.
Not all Aussies are racists like you.
I'm not going to stoop to your level of childish commentary Harry (BTW - is your surname by any chance "Highpants"). Please stop taunting me with these thunderous accusations. Please.
And before you claim it, I am not a “Pom”: I was not born in Britain, neither were either of my parents. I’ll grant you that one of my grandparents was born in the UK but in Scotland to be exact.
Who cares where you're from. The mystique surrounding your tantalising the forum by not telling us where you're from then saying you can hold many passports is lame.
Does the racist term “Pom” include Scots? I thought it was only English.
Prove that the term Pom is racist, bearing in mind racism applies to 'race' (word to the wise: English is not a race, it's a nationaltiy). You can't because you are lying again. Again, please stop lying to make me look bad.
You're correct on that question that you knew the answer to anyway.
Next you’ll be telling us that the words ‘Paki’ and ‘Nigger’ are perfectly acceptable (of course they are to you)
I won't be telling anyone that because it's not acceptable. On the other hand, you will continue to lie on this forum and tell people that I think those terms are acceptable because you are a liar. Please stop lying about me to make me look bad and you look good.
The individual acts of courage and selflessness which were ordered by the British government?
Yes, those acts. Good to see you chose to ignore the qualifying statement to my contention. Strange how you miss any opportunity to engage in debate. Do'h - I forgot. You can't debate - all you can do is Wiki some 'facts' and post them on the forum - big deal.
By the way, those airmen sometimes volunteered without permission from superiors, so, technically you're lying again when you say that those acts were ordered by HMG because not all of them were. Again, stop with the lies.
Poland was Britain’s first ally? I think you mean that it was the other way round. Or did Poland declare war on Germany in support of Britain? Did Poland provide a safe harbour for British forces which were running away from the Nazis even before the war started?
No, I don't mean it the other way around. It is interchangeable though, depending on the CONTEXT.
Please, give us the Wiki link you frantically searched info regarding Poles running to England before the war commenced. I'm in suspense.
Another word to the wise - be sure to give us the whole story because if you don't I'll simply track down the whole picture behind your skeleton facts and demonstrate again that you manipulate facts to suggest a negative picture of the Poles which, given your repetition of this theme, can only suggest spite and malice.
Ozi Dan:SUBSEQUENT EVENTS WOULD SUGGEST THIS WAS MERE RHETORIC TO INSTILL A DESIRE IN THE POLES TO FIGHT AND DIE FOR THE POMS
What would you like the British to have done in 1945? Stop fighting the Nazis and start fighting the Soviets? Yet again a Pole (to use the word in its loosest possible way) blames Britain for Poland’s inability to free itself.
What is wrong with you. How on earth did you come up with such a response to my contention. It has absolutely nothing to do with it.
Please, fight for your negative beliefs against the Poles with more than just that old guff. Please don't tell me that if you can't find a mere fact to discredit an opinion you simply shrivel and start repeating a tired old question like...
What would you like the British to have done in 1945? Start WWIII?
What would you like the British to have done in 1945? Start WWIII?
shall I keep going or end the misery?
Ozi Dan:THEREFORE THE POLES WERE NOT ABLE TO CHOOSE WHETHER THEY WISHED TO CONTINUE TO FIGHT FOR SOMEONE ELSE
Who would they fight for? Nobody give enough of a shit to do anything to help Poland.
It's just getting worse Harry. What are you on about, apart from having another spiteful stab at Poland because, yet again, you have no argument to make and no challenge to my contention.
The answer is whether they wished to continue to fight for the Poms, you knuckle dragger.
Wasn’t Poland an ally of Austria and Germany in WWII?
This is getting ridiculous. Please stop lying to everyone.
The answer is no (I just checked that on WIKI).
(BTW - I'm waiting for the obvious indignant response from you as I just followed your example of not replying to your full post by cherry picking a part of it to make you look like a goose).
No need thanks. My grandfather was a Spitfire pilot and flew with Poles. My grandmother was an RAF nurse and treated Poles. Their stories about Poles in wartime and the Poles that they are still in touch with were one of the reasons I came to Poland.
So what? Oh, I get it, you're one of those types of people who says they can go around calling black people derogatory terms because they know a black person and that makes it ok or their grandad fought alongside a black person and that makes it ok. Lame - have some self respect.
I have never made any such reference. I have asked you when hunting Aborigines for sport became illegal in the Lucky Country. It’s a question which you deal with in your normal way: ignore it and hope nobody notices.
Stop with the lies and deceit. I ignore these types of questions and hope that YOU don't notice.
I'm unaware of any aboriginal hunts in Australia. Perhaps you could tell me when it became unlawful. Please reference the Act and pertinent section as I'm curious. Please also cite these 'hunts'. You can try a great online search tool called Wiki. Be sure to start a thread in 'off topic lounge' though, as it's really got nothing to do with this thread, has it? If I don't join you in your very own thread, I'm sure others are just itching to tete a tete with you on such a great issue.
Like I said, you've raised the issues of the Aboriginals on this and another thread - why? I'm serious mate.
Please keep the direct and overt racist abuse out of yours.
Oh geez! This is turning into the old chestnut of "I know you are, but what am I?"
Ok, I will just for you Harry. Promise you'll do as I asked too??
The person who brought racism to this thread was you.
You got me.
I’m quite happy to call a female liar a liar when she lies. That is called sexual equality. I can understand that the concept is not one that you are familiar with.
Just as you are happy to harass and intimidate that same female by following her around in other threads and calling her a liar too eh. What a weird thing to do.
No, that is not sexual equality. Get a grip. Would you slap a female if she slapped you? By your definition, that's sexual equality too isn't it.
Grow a set and lay off the females on this forum.
You said that your grandfather was born in Poland but your father was born in Australia. Or was it that your father was born in Britain. Which would make you more of a “Pom” than me.
No I didn't. My father was born in Lodz. My grandfather was born in Stanislawow. I was born in Australia. I have never been to Poland. Unlike you, I don't hold multiple passports. Unlike you, I don't feel a passport or physical location is a requisite to a nexus to a country.
So you have no idea what could have been done. Might the reason be that nothing more could have been done? What a strange concept.
The answer is what it is. Do you believe nothing more could have been done? Do you believe that the Brits should have informed the Poles that they were being sold out to the Russians without protest from Britain? Do you think it was fair that the Brits kept Poles in their ranks when they knew that they had sold the Poles out? Just some simple things that the Poms could have done, but didn't.
Please stop with the lies. Invites were issued to free Poles “a week or so” after news of the parade was announced.
Norman Davies is lying then and so is the Sikorski Institute, who, if memory serves correctly, was his source. See Rising '44. I can't recall the page number but the index will help you.
Thanks for the concern but I do actually have a degree. One so good that when put on my CV it is more than good enough to get me employment at Polish universities teaching English writing.
Wow. I wish I had a degree that was 'so good'. What a goose you are.
Just had a mental picture of your job interview:
"Mr Highpants, I see in your CV you have a degree - what field does your degree relate to?"
"Well Professor Kowalski, it transcends any field because it is sooo goood.
"Boze - your hired!"
Hang on, didn't you proclaim you're an author? Forgot - that turned out to be a casual spot of journalism on the back page of some Warsaw rag. What next Harry?
