I wonder if this Polish swan-eating thing has ever been proved. I've never heard of a case coming to court and the only people I know who've caught and eaten a swan in UK were actually from Canada.
The swan tasted nice, rather like goose, but leaner meat......
He was raised to imagine Britain as a fair minded place with honest, decent people yet, since moving here 4 year ago he has had nothing but insults from strangers, unfair requests from bosses, employment agencies attempting to underpay him and anti-immigration (Polish) propoganda from our media...which is a disgrace.
People can say the same anywhere. His experience, sadly, isn't unique. I hate it when people say it happens in UK. It shouldn't. And many immigrants to Poland would say it mirrors theirs. The 4 things mentioned have happened to me here in the past 10 years, insults from strangers, unfair requests from bosses, companies attempting to underpay me (ALWAYS get everything in writing here) and anti-immigration (British) propaganda in the media.
The fate of the immigrant everywhere. The only thing to do is to rise above it, to avoid just becoming cynical.
