if poland really is so great, then why are they all coming over here to britain...?

Because they can.
Because they can make some money if they are willing to work hard. And Polish people always work hard.

So why not ?

Sure. I was. Poland just sucks nowadays.

Just like Jayboy said. Everybody's trying to move to the UK, Netherlands, now Germany, there are many Poles in Sweden, Norway, Greece so:

PLEASE JUST DON'T SAY IT'S A GREAT COUNTRY WHILE ABOUT 10% OF POPULATION HAVE MOVED TO OTHER COUNTRIES AND BRITISH GOVERNMENT IS EXCEPTING ANOTHER MILLION NEXT YEAR.

Just don't lie. The truth is people are not stupid and always in world history have been moving from worst to better places. And it's not all about money. It's really annoying when some people, like "Lady in red" think Poland is a great country, and Poles move to the UK because they want to "make some money". Maybe You are greedy "Lady in red", but I'm going to move abroad because only there I feel normal, Poland isn't and wasn't a perfect country, in fact - it isn't even normal. And will never be, because most of thinking people are far away from here.

Most of the Poles that go to work in the UK, come back home, in Poland. If it's not for money, so what for ? Going to parties ?...

and I think that 95% of emigrtants went to UK/Ireland ... because of money.

When I see places wchih some of people on this forum have visited becuse her their partner is form this town, I know that main reason is money. You can ask your Polish friends about town they come from and you will have the aswer.

as to next milion ... dont worry.

I love poland and the people, must o been to various parts of it around 20/25 times since the early 90s, been to krakow earlier in the year, just back from warsaw and will be in gdansk for a few days from the 10th november untill the 15h.

But now i reckon i need to agree with polishmaster ( to a degree). What chance have all the (old) eastern bloc countrys got if the cream of the well educated, the hard workers, the thinkers, the planners etc all go looking for a better life in the (old) west? This is only my opinion, so please dont shoot me down in flames for it, but i think Poland , along with the baltic countries, romania bulgaria etc etc needed for there own benifit to remain outside the eu. Poland needs its brightest and its smartest in Poland, shaping and building the country for the future.

Please dont think for a second i am being anti-polish in any way

have to disagree :o)

Everybody's trying to move to the UK, Netherlands, now Germany, there are many Poles in Sweden, Norway, Greece so:

I travel to Poland every month and stay there for 1-2 weeks on each visit; i come across many AngloPols (people born in UK /parents Polish) who have made the opposite move because they say the quality of life is better for them in Poland and are disillusioned with what is happening in UK ie. failing NHS, failing education system, high taxes, yob culture on the increase, increase in serious crime, political correctness gone mad, a country which is losing its identity etc..... also look how many UK citizens are looking to make new lives for themselves abroad in places like US, Canada, Spain, France, Australia etc...

I see myself moving my family (wife is Polish born from Wroclaw) to Poland within the next two years.

Poland isn't and wasn't a perfect country

No country is perfect, but there are some which are heading in the right direction ... like I feel Poland is, whilst England is taking backward steps !

I know that there will be Poles who leave their country and make new lives for themselves in UK, Canada, Germany or wherever, but there are those who are working abroad to make a better life for themselves and plan to return to Poland.

It's really annoying when some people, like "Lady in red" think Poland is a great country, and Poles move to the UK because they want to "make some money".

POLAND IS A GREAT COUNTRY .......why does it annoy Polishmaster when people have this view ? If Poles had the opportunity to earn decent wages in Poland they wouldn't have to move abroad .... but unfortunately the reality is that by coming over to UK they can earn several times more than back in Poland.

There is another thread dedicated to unravelling that very mystery. Is it in East or Central Europe. It has even been suggested it may be in Asia.

It's for the ones who know and for the ones to find out...Ah, the mistery of Poland.

No, that is a really bad idea as life expectancy is still falling and there is a lot of crime in Poland. You can be mugged for your money and even thrown out of a train window for your wallet! England is still safer and social welfare provision is a lot better than in Poland. As for the health Service in Poland, well, you have to take drugs in to the hospital as there are no drugs inside. You will have to pay for everything, even giving bribes to the doctors for treatment. Poland to live in-certainly not!

It has been proven to you on this very forum that life expectancy in Poland is actually on the rise. How come you keep on repeating the same lie if by now even you know better?

I have not been to Poland for many years and, excuse me, I do not lie and resent that remark. Life in Poland has always been falling in the twentieth century and must be falling now as so many of the young are leaving with just the old remaining so this too must effect the statistics.

You do. You lie a lot on this forum, and it has been proven to you many times.

Life in Poland has always been falling in the twentieth century

Don't you see the absurdity of that statement?

the twentieth century

I thought we were in the 21st Century, so your statistics would be 100 years out of date. yeah, well that figures doesn't it !!!

Enough said. :(

or just over 7,regardless, I must say Ive never had to dodge passengers falling out of train windows in Poland, even your crims' are nice and polite,when I caught a pick pocket dipping my jacket on the 175 he apologised so profusly and genuinly that we just smiled politly at each other before he slinked off at the next stop,had I done that in london Id have probably ended up with a 9mm in my forehead......

My first trip to Poland was back in March. A couple of friends and I went to Wrocław. I really love that city so much and it's so beautiful on the Rynek and along the Odra too. I met my girlfriend while I was there and have been back many times. Speaking of which I will be back there again on Thursday for 5 days. I've also been to Krakow but sadly didn't have enough time to see all there is to see there. I will be going back again soon. I really love Poland, the architecture, the culture, the history, the food, and especially the piwo. Next year I hope to move there permanently. :-)

In this new century I would have no idea of life in Poland as I have not returned there. No idea!
