so how come you make statements like the one below?

You can be mugged for your money and even thrown out of a train window for your wallet!

You appear to be so confused that not only you cannot produce any truthful statements, but you are even unable to construct a half-believable lie!

Friday next week will be ten years to the day that I arrived in Warsaw (before that I did a year in Gdansk and a year in Slupsk).

mugged for your money and even thrown out of a train window for your wallet!

mugging is a daily occurrence in London - only recently a good friend of mine was mugged at knifepoint by three coloured youths aged 16-18 yrs, at 5pm as he was returning home from work.

England is still safer

I feel much safer walking around Warsaw late in the evenings than in London.

As for being 'thrown out of a train window for your wallet', I think you have been watching too many James Bond films !!

I have heard that serious gun and knife crime is on the increase in UK; there is a big problem with gangs and drugs.

Many of my friends have moved over to Poland within the last 5-10 years and none of them regret it .... they all wonder why it's taking me so long to move also !:o)

I know someone selling up in London to come and live in Poland will be in a very comfortable position, in that they may have in the region of £500,000 to start their new life - i know some will come with less, but I know of many who would come with even more.

Have you ever been in Poland ?

I'm reading some post from this forum and I think that half of you only hear about Poland and don't now any polish word.

I was in Poland last August for a family gathering....and have been talking with some family and friend here about going back for another visit in the next year or two. With the exception of some of the food I loved my time there. Meeting my Polish relatives was a wonderful experience and I hope to get to know them all better. Just as I hope to improve on my Polish. I don't know much.....but I do have a desire to learn.

Some days are worse than others, but it's not that bad. Besides, it's the bag snatchers you have to look out for.
The police are well aware of what is going on and there are plenty of cameras about.

Rubbish-it is well known that people sitting alone in compartments in trains in Poland can be attacked, their money stolen and then they have been thrown out of the train window to hid the evidence. Why are you obsessed about truth and lies? If Poland is so wonderful then why do you not exchange life in Canada for Warszawa yourself?

Because liars are not dependable.

I never particularly liked Warsaw actually :) Born and raised in Galicia, now living in Ontario for the last ~15 years. Family, work, property. Can't just pickup and go because some katsap fart spews hatred and anti-polonism on PF.

In that case, you have been in Poland not very long ago compared to me then. Fifteen years you say, yet you too do not want to live in Poland. Interesting, fifteen years in Canada and the Poles have never have a single good word to say about the British or their culture and then you want to be an expert of Polish Language and culture-we say in Polish, nie mozna miec dwoch rzeczy naraz, in English, you want your cake and eat it as we say in England. If you want to be the expert then prosze bardzo wroc sobie do cholernej Polski i tam siedz! Od pietnastu lat jestes w Kanadzie bardzo blisko do granicy z Polska! Sprytny jestes!

I have nothing against Poland or its people and I have three wonderful children all born to a Polish wife. All three of my children have been baptized in the Polish Church. I simply believe that all countries and all languages belong to everybody and should be free. I simply resent Poles who escape to English speaking countries and then snipe from the sidelines in Canada, Florida, and of course, a local area of Poland-Australia no less being just down the road from Warszawa!. Then, these same people come on this forum and are rude, sarcastic and God knows what else. It is these Poles who are trying to be exclusionary and racist and not me. I have every right to appear on this Forum and members of my family fought for Polish soil in World War 2 just like many millions of others. Because we live in England does not mean that we have nothing to contribute and these poles do not have monopoly rights, though I would think so from what they sometimes write! End of story.

So why do you constantly pis.s on her heritage? Are you sure she's Polish?

I simply believe that all countries and all languages belong to everybody and should be free.

And yet on every occasion you claim the Poles stole russian words, except when we deal with vulgarisms. In those cases of course the words are of Polish origin and imposed on russians by Poles.

I simply resent Poles who escape to English speaking countries and then snipe from the sidelines in Canada, Florida, and of course

You resent all Poles. Period.

Then, these same people come on this forum and are rude, sarcastic and God knows what else.

This is just another proof how you consider the readers of this forum to be fools. But your words are here for all to see your anti-polonism

I have every right to appear on this Forum and members of my family fought for Polish soil in World War 2 just like many millions of others

So ave respect tot the members of your family who fought for that soil and don't s.hit on them by s.hiting on Polish culture and heritage.

Because we live in England does not mean that we have nothing to contribute and these poles

So do contribute something constructive. If you need to spew hatred towards Poles then perhaps you should really join "Pravda" forums. You will feel at home there, katsap.

I have never spewed hatred towards the Poles on this forum or anywhere else for that matter. One of my own sons even held a Polish passport at one time. Therefore, how could I?

Why should I join a Prawda forum? I am not one per cent Russian anyway. You talk about perception in language and how you were a three year old child sitting in the pram translating Russian novels in to Icelandic from Latin and then you can not even understand the difference between duzy and wielki. You talk about a wielki samochod yet you are full of perception about me and all of it is wrong anyway. I do not hate Polish people and my own wife is Polish. You do not even know me at all. End of story.

- And now the Polonophobic hate-puking piggy-which-pretends-to-be-English is playing a not Polonophobic not hate puking piggy.

I wonder when will a stroke, or heart attack, or malignant cancer finish off the piggy, preferably with its sow and litter? I hope real soon.

The pig has been allowed to oink hatefully in and muck up this 'Polish' forum for ages. Just look at the number of its 'posts.'

Seems there are some who like it doing it.

Michal,
It ain't worth leaving comments here. There is no debate (a bit like Polish politics. By the way who won the election? was it Hitler or Stalin?). Any comment with even a whiff of criticism and the harpies fly down an' getcha man!!!

Just say everything in Poland is great and it will all be just hunky-dory!

i agree, the last time he was in Poland was probably when his countrymen were standing on the right side of the Wisla watching Warsaw burn and not doing anything about it, so its best to ignore him really.

I've never been to Poland but I'm intrigued that so many Poles are coming over here (to the UK). I wonder what it is like to come to the UK? I'm presuming people experience some sort of culture shock on arrival, but then what? How does it feel to be a Pole in Britain?
