You know i have been reading lots of old postings, really can be quite amusing sometimes.... Right i'm off to the pub...have fun!!

Ha! And this coming from a Pole!!!!

Just because we voice concern at the vast numbers that have arrived does not make us intolerant, prejudiced or racist.

Cornelius relax, I like the British, even if they are little snobbish. :)

I think the British are mad that their country is becoming the next USA. Theres so many immigrants there now. I read super express and found out that most Poles that move to England to find a job end up on the street. Its sad but true and I think their just mad that England is not what used to be.

Im not racist but if Poland will have a lot of muslims, or other nation people moveing there it wont be the same Poland.

Excellent point. That's the whole idea.!!!
IT WON"T BE THE SAME POLAND!!!

I really wouldn't want to see Yellow, Black or Green people walking down the streets of Poland as Polish citizens. It won't be Poland anymore! Poland has to protect itself from foreigners that will take over the country. Even though they could use some insights, but it won't be Poland anymore.

It's like breeding dogs. You have cocker spaniels mixed with poodles and you get cocka-poos.

exactly.

I don'tt know if you read Daily mail last Thursday saying"Peterboroug taken over by Poles"- I like England and I understand that it was kind of warning that there are more Polish here than they estimated so it is warning for them about Bulgaria and Romania.

But it article was just not true- you can't believe journalists- they say that 2.5 years ago( before big emigrations from east europe) Millfield area of peterborough was such a pleasant place everyone was saying everyone Hello on the street. My husband has been living for 15 years in peterborough and this area was always rough.

Charity to offer destitute Poles chance to go home

So many Poles are living in squalor and poverty on the streets of Britain that a Polish charity is sending staff to London to persuade them to return home.

The Barka Foundation, a non-governmental organisation based in Poznan, western Poland, was alerted by British charities. They fear that many of the Poles are turning to drugs, prostitution and crime.

Poverty in Australia, although considered to be a prosperous country, is as serious an issue as global poverty. Poverty in Australia is associated with high levels of long-term unemployment, the significant increase in the difference in economic well being between Australians. Australian Indigenous peoples continue to be the single most disadvantaged group in the Country, with many living in conditions similar to those in the poorer Countries. Evidence of social distress is found in the increasing numbers of Australians seeking assistance from charitable organisations in times of financial crisis. The Salvation Army in Australia assists 1.08 million people per year and spends $318 million delivering its social services through out Australia. Poverty is the major cause of homelessness. An increasing drug culture, gambling addictions and family breakdown are also contributing to the high levels of poverty.

HUMMMMMMMMMM

No my friend, it is your country that is governed by racist bigots and that has a reputation for prejudice and mindless racism.

Please, tell me, what has Polish government done to deserve reputation of being racist?

I want to hear some facts from you Cornelius, and not any made up fairy tales.

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.

And where did you hear it? A friend of a friend that knows a guy, whose distant relatives step daughters cousin read about it in a tabloid told you? Be more precise Cornelius. there's no room for gossips on this forum.

And to make it even, my close friend was once beaten up by a group of black women, just because she was white. You won't believe where it happened. In the UK.

Lef - re: your link - maybe they forget the other people that sleep on the streets and minging english prostitutes down Kings Cross - I'm actually really starting to feel sorry for Polish people, they're just every-day people that are coming here to work and travel a bit and then go home....I dont mean to sound patronising either.

Personally, the Polish men and women I have met (through my Polish partner) have all been very nice, well behaved and likeable.

I think a lot of English feel threatened in that our government predicted recently an influx of about 13,000 Poles to our country when in reality it was closer to a million. So you will get some saying "taking away our jobs, etc, etc" but from what I have seen, the Polish worker (particularly any kind of construction/ engineering work) seems to work harder and longer than your typical English worker (No tea breaks every 30 minutes, strictly 9-5 and not a second more and so forth).

From what little knowledge and experience of Polish peeps I have gleaned of late, I would say they are good-hearted people who like a drink and think friends and family are very important to them. :)

And there's nowt wrong with that.

hi
i have to agree with my friend sarah about polish ppl working really hard if only half the ppl in england would work as hard as they do maybe them there would not be so many ppl on beneifts.

i would love to see more polish ppl in london and i would love to learn polish along with my friend sarah. we are both learning slowly and we do suprise our polish men with some words we say and they love it, they think it is great that we take time out to learn polish.

so all british ppl are not so rude all tho we do have a few ppl who are just selfish and mean and my only advice to polish ppl is to ignore these type of ppl as in our opinion you have the right to come over to britian and earn money

Absolutely, you can't go around tarring everybody with the same brush by using sweeping generalisations. There are always going to be the odd few mouldy bits of bread in the sliced loaf. And there's a dubious English analogy for you. :)

Do you mind me asking when you were born, Shelley? I was born in the early 70s and I feel old sometimes when I see what the youths of today get up to, how they behave, talk, etc. :(

01/02/70 - and i dont feel old - I dont look it and I certainly have times when I dont act it - I just think it's a shame how young girls let themselves get - and how they talk - dont get wrong the air can be blue if i lose my temper - but I wouldnt use that kind of lang in front of my parents or other older people.

i am 27 and have 2 boys and i think the youths of today are a mess and the things they do and say is a disgrace. alot of ppl blame the parents but i am not so sure on that as my 10 year old son got involved in a group and he started to change and he started talking like a black boy or i think they call them rude boys but i soon put a stop to that. just thought i would share that with you all as i am so bored at work :)

I want to hear some facts from you Cornelius, and not any made up fairy tales.

A coalition government consisting of the League of Polish families, Samoobrona and the so called "Law and Justice" party is a disaster for human rights in Poland. The League of Polish families (and Samboorona) have openly voiced hostility towards the Jewish community in Poland, they sponsor youth hate groups to attack the gay community and the authorities take little or no action to combat the rampant racism that is so prevalent in your part of the world. You do not have to be an expert researcher to quickly establish that many of the parties that make up your coalition government have a history of right wing nationlism and bigoted ultra catholic rhetoric.

The level of racist attacks and the conviction rate for such attacks is an indictment of the Polish government. Their complete failure to tackle this problem suggests two things, incompetence or complicity.

How can you look at Andrei Lepper and say your government does not hold high the flag of bigotry!!

And where did you hear it? A friend of a friend that knows a guy, whose distant relatives step daughters cousin read about it in a tabloid told you? Be more precise Cornelius. there's no room for gossips on this forum.
And to make it even, my close friend was once beaten up by a group of black women, just because she was white. You won't believe where it happened. In the UK.

It was my brother in law. Its not gossip. He had to leave Poland because of the repulsive racism that he experienced at the hand of the Polish and when he looked to the authorities for help received none.

While it may be acceptable in eastern Europe, its not compatible with the UK. Of course you get racists in the UK, and I fully believe your story about your friend. I find her beating just as repulsive as I find the treatment of my brother in law in Poland. There is a difference however, and that difference lies in the number of people in England who would behave in such a way compared to the number of people in Poland and the reaction of the authorities to such an act.
