What is English people attitude towards Poles, I was reading that some people are unhappy to see many Poles over there and are hostility towards them but on the other hand they are respected too. So whats the truth? So far I thought English people are very friendly but after reading their discussion on one forum I was quite shocked how anti-polish they were.

British are notorious for being prejudice.
Ta ta

I am English and I live in West London. I live next to Hammersmith which probably has more Polish people than any other part of London if not England. My parents came from Guyana in South America which was a British collony, but I was born here. They went through the same things as immigrants, but probably worse as they were black. I do not think the Poles thankfully see signs on peoples front doors saying 'NO BLACKS NO IRISH NO DOGS' That was a common sight in this country in the 50's onwards.

To be honest I didn't even think about Polish immigration much until I met my boyfriend who is a Pole. London is my home and we are a city of people who are the most tolerant of other nations and cultures on this globe. The people who are zenaphobic, are in the minority. Most Londoners love foreigners coming here. I love the fact we are all different. I love the fact that when I am on the tube and a foreign person gets in my carriage, no one gives a damn. We are too busy to care about things like that. We have too much to do.

I have one complaint about SOME Polish people and Eastern Europeans and even my boyfirend who is Polish feels even more strongly about this than I do. Alot of Eastern Europeans come over here and look down on black and asian people and are extremely rascist. This maybe due to the fact that they come from a predominantly white country, with less multi-culturalism. I have been called ****** by more Polish people than any other group in London. The problem is the non-rascist white English population see us (black and asians born in England) as more British/English than you, because we were born here, have been here so long and intergrated with people more. Our language is English so there is no barrier there. Also the popularity of the black music culture allows for the intergration of black and asian youth, as there is a common interest amongst the young.

I just want to say that if you are going to come over here and make a life for yourself, then I welcome you with open arms BUT please respect ALL of the people who live in this country and leave your prejudice back at home. We Londoners don't need or want it around us. We do not need any extra racial tension in such an over-populated city like ours. We love London, our home, with a passion and it ruins the vibe having people like that coming here.

God my spelling is so crap Lol xenophobic - Sorry

The britsh people hate the polish, but most are to afraid to say it. there are 250,000 polish immagrents in the UK, taking are jobs and more importantly ruining our economy by sending the money (often cash, so no tax is given to the government) back to other countries. there are 3 times more of you lot than expected how will the NHS cope? hope will the police cope? how will the econey cope? how will the property cope? The immergrnets into this country will destroy it.**** off home.

Don't speak for me. I am British and I dont need pig ignorant twat like you putting vile words in my mouth. I do not hate anyone. Hate is for losers. If you have nothing good to say, why don't you keep quiet and do us all a favour. I would be really happy if you ****** off back to the stone from which you crawled.

There are lots of British people who do nothing and are a burden on society so don't talk ****. Also British workers are some of the laziest in the world. My boyfriend works on building sites and they drink tea look at the tits in the Daily Sport newspaper all day and the Polish guys are expected to do their own work and then do the extra that the English guys didnt do, because they were too busy scratching their arses.

They go home early and often the foreman lets them go because they are friends and everyone else has to run around like blue arse flies to finish off. It happens all of the time. Often Polish guys get spoken to like crap and it has happened to my boyfriend. However he is a very big man and he doesnt take that from anyone and walks out. He can, because he can always get work, but alot of people can't and they have to put up with it.

If you are going to talk about something speak the truth.

Like I said before I don't think the Brits hate Polish people but Polish people (from what I have seen to date) do not give the distinct impression that they love the Brits.

The only signs I ever see or translate is that they resent some Brits especially the ones with money. They also come into the Country with a pre-conceived idea that the streets are paved with gold. This is just nonsense.

Blacks and Asians have nothing to do with this topic, but if they are suffering from racism from Polish people then that just re-confirms my thoughts about Polish peoples attitude towards established people within a country, which strictly speaking they are only guests.

As for racism in general, the Polish history of this is not exactly squeaky clean anyway.

Is that from Polands 20th century Empire with its famous African and Asian colonies? Or the big black civil rights movement brutaly supresed in 1960s Warsaw?

You can learn from history, but the present and the future are what we live for.

Britain should be grateful!

In any free market economy like the UK prices are ultimately set by supply and demand. Prior to immigration certain industries, due to labour shortages, lacked the ability to compete both on a national and international stage. The UK in many areas had lost market share and was set to lose more with the entrance into the EU of former Eastern European countries. Immigration has in many ways reversed this trend and will in the long term benefit price inflation.

Additional expenditure of all Social Services are now being felt, Cambridgeshire reports in the news today that they have had a 17 fold rise in drink-drive figures from Eastern Europeans. Economic factors are ultimately set by supply and demand, and this is not beneficial to the economy. This thread is going off on a tangent anyhow. It should actually be renamed "Polish peoples attitude to the British" a 17 fold increase in drink driving is disgusting and only fuels the arguments of the far right.

Many Eastern Europeans are causing trouble and it goes to show that criminal records should now be scanned before allowing people into this country.

Wrong

Blacks and asians are English if they are born here. I consider myself to be English. Therefore I can answer the question. 'What do English People think of the Poles' and alot of English people who are of that racial background like myself, see the attitude towards them as a problem. Therefore it is relevant to the topic.

It should actually be renamed "Polish peoples attitude to the British"

There is some truth in that statement. I have heard more anti-british talk from Polish people than positive things to be honest.

Thats right.. Delete the name from the first set of brackets.[quote=Murzynka] Delete this name

Thanks for the help : )

Nobody is the slightest bit interested on whether or not you think Polish people have the right to live and work in the UK. They have the right as members of the European union and were invited by the British government. Most of the information you post is loaded with "BNP right wing" undertones and lacks any real intellectual understanding of economics. The example given above is absolutely rubbish with regard to the negative impact it has on the British economy.

Many Eastern Europeans are causing trouble and it goes to show that criminal records should now be scanned before allowing people into this country.

Many Brits are causing trouble on stag nights in Krakow and Warsaw. What do you suggest we do with them!

Release real stags into the proceedings! When they're rutting.

For hen nights, I don't think releasing hens will have the same effect.

I dont think the BNP has anything to do with this Topic. I see the Police want more money to deal with Poles that cannot behave though.

the Police want more money

They always want more money. Who doesn't?
What they need are excuses for more money.
It is all the people that need police, not ethnic groups.

You seem to be defending statistical data released by the Police. You are either trying to defend factual information with lies or will not admit that some people from Eastern Europe are trouble.

I see on the news today that another high ranking Police Officer in the UK is blaming Eastern Europeans for a rise in drink driving and accidents in Dorset. If the trend continues, they could make people from Eastern Europe take a driving test. The alcohol consumption by Polish people from what I have witnessed in sometimes worse than our locals.

Polish wives are supposed to be a nightmare lol.

Polish blokes take an interest in British women but the one I know are not interested, its all money.
