British are notorious for being prejudice.
Ha! And this coming from a Pole!!!!
No my friend, it is your country that is governed by racist bigots and that has a reputation for prejudice and mindless racism.
I know of someone who tried to live and study in Poland. He found being repeatedly spat at because of the colour of his skin intolerable and had to leave. Such behaviour is punishable by a prison sentence in the UK, in Poland, it is endorsed by your government and public opinion.
London is one of the most densely populated and multicultural cities in the world, we are far from intolerant.... There aren't many countries that would stand for such a mass influx (almost a million) of eastern European migrants with such little complaint. I'm sure that if Poland was being flooded with migrants the "natives" would be far less tolerant than the English have been to you all.
I live in North West London where there are many Poles. Since the expansion of the EU I have found the streets littered with young men drinking high strength lager, begging and racially abusing passers by who happen to not be white. What is ironic is that these people fail to understand that if their hosts (the English) were as intolerant as they are, the bad press would be the least of your worries.
Just because we voice concern at the vast numbers that have arrived does not make us intolerant, prejudiced or racist.
We have a right to protect our country, values and borders from the overwhelming flood of Polish and eastern Europeans that have poured into our country.
