A Polish man has been treated in hospital after being attacked by a gang of seven in..

In which country ? Not really hard to guess. Police were called to James Street in Boston just after midnight on Friday after reports of a man being attacked.

The 29-year-old victim was taken to the Pilgrim hospital and treated for cuts to his hands, believed to be from a knife, and other assault injuries. .

Comes as no surprise. Boston isnt a nice town. Its a place with a high number of immigrants from all over the World; Poland, Russia, Portugal, Iraqis, Kurds etc. Some pubs have signs up stating "No English" on the doors. Large scale fights between the various nationalities especially the Kurds and Iraqis occur on a regular basis.

Lots of BNP support among the white working class. Most work is unskilled and low paid and with immigrants, often illegal, taking jobs there isnt much left for the poorly educated.

Im afraid its not funny G. Maybe taking was the wrong word. Its a fact that the gangmasters employee the people willing to take the lowest wage and that is the immigrants particularly the illegal ones as they have no one to complain to and are just grateful for being here and having a wage.

The sad thing G is that you actually rejoice when something nasty happens to a Pole in the UK as it gives you the ammunition to have a go at us.

And that really is sad.

G you go out in Boston?? Brave man!!! :-P
If you read the story properly, the guy wasnt stabbed. He has minor cuts and has probably been released from the Pilgrim already.

Most of the expats i chat to in local bars have experienced extremely uncomfortabe situations with Poles in Poland, if you upgrade this statistic it would probably account for around 30% of the population of expats, all 10 thousand of us!

G is highlighting the fact that a Pole was stabbed in the UK I wonder how many foreigners would be raped, mugged or stabbed in Poland should there be similar numbers in Poland to what there is in Britian.

stabbed in the UK

HE WASNT STABBED!!!!!!!!
No excuse for an 'unprovoked' attack but lets not upgrade the crime to suit an arguement.

There are those who are intolerant. I've had people telling me off for speaking English here but Poles have the decency not to attack. I applaud this!!

I often hear about these anti-foreigner skinheads, especially from Katowice, but I have never run into any such people which makes me question just how prevalent it is.

Ok i have a few points to make on this,

Firstly, whoever was responsible for the attack, should be seriously punished, long term jail, whipped, flogged or whatever, regardless of nationalities involved things like this should not be allowed to happen!!!

Secondly, It's idiots like these who go round stabbing immigrants which gives the rest of Britain a bad name. While i can't say i'm happy with our immigration policies at the moment i'm not one (like most of the British population) to take up arms and radomly attack immigrants whether they be Polish, Czech, Indian, Iraqi or an other nationality. What a stupid and rediculous way to try and make a point. Its racist, biggoted idiots like these who get all the lime light for doing such a stupid thing, when all of those who just want immigration to be sorted out get left in the wings.

I lay the blame at the hnads of two areas, firstly, the dirty scumbags who exicute such attacks, what sort of human beings are they, that is if they are at all!!!! Seconldy the Press, who love to pick up on this sort of story because they know that it will cause tension on other medians such as Polish forums :). therefore, having the effect where the polish react and then the scumbags react and so on and so on. So instead of sorting out the problem of immigration we have to deal with idiots running round with knives stabbing people and the Poles who think there the only people to get attacked in the UK.

It sorts nothing, SORT IT OUT BRITAIN!!!!

Its horrible that a person has been stabbed to death, period.

Excellent post. Its the individuals, not 'Britain' that attacked this person. Its very dramatic here sometimes.

LOL Oh! (Sunday's my bimbo day) I didn't read the link, just assumed that after an attack by 7 people, he'd be dead. Either way, it still sucks that it happened to a person, regardless of the fact that he happens to be Polish.
