Lazy journalism, complete with grammatical errors (as one respondent pointed out ;) ) as appears to be becoming more common over here these days.
She also criticised 'unjustified' claims that Poles came just to send benefits home.
Not exactly "unjustified" with in my experience, and not in the experience of certain members of my family, either. All of us deal with recent Polish immigrants as part of our respective jobs, and we've seen the change in the type of people who have come over during the last 5 years - so it's not surprising that a lot of Britsh people are sick of Poles - a lot of Poles are sick of them as well! Now THAT'S definitely something you wouldn't hear Asians say about Asians! If there's one thing we Poles do well, it's tell it how it is, even if it offends the easily-offended! :)
I've been hanging out with hundreds of Polish guys over here, and most of them carried a knife or a pocket knife.
True, and places like Kielce are well-known for knife crime. I've even met a Polish GIRL who carrried a knife! You only need to look at the graffiti in Polish cities to see that there is a huge gang problem developing there, and it's not just because of hip-hop pricks with short-man syndrome like Peja trying to be "ghetto blokersi" or whatever.
Poles struggling for work in London
How that photo proves that the people in the photo are "struggling for work" is beyond me. More likely that they are struggling to get
to work, because a London bus is late. Yet again. If anything, they're struggling to develop dress-sense, but that's a Polish characteristic which isn't likely to change for a while. I'm surprised that they aren't dressed head-to-toe in denim, tbh. lol.

Such as? I'm of Polish origin, and a lot of the "myths" are true imo, but they aren't exactly exclusive to Poles.
I've never eaten a swan, though. LOL :)
