Poles claim UK benefits after working only one year instead of going home

There are an estimated 5 million scotland born british citizens working in england. Whats your point.

Lol, he's back !

I understand his point, quite simple really. All these Scottish foreigners taking all the jobs away from the English people and claiming benefits in England and if they get really sick they can get free prescriptions by nipping back to Scotland for the day..

Shouldn't be allowed ! I bet they have to pay for extra English teachers too in the schools as it is hard to be able to inderstand that Glasgow accent.

I may start another thread too, 'don't let the Scots buy our homes in England !'

:)

Of course I really like most Scottish people :))

The Scots like to travel

To put distance between themselves and the sassenachs?

Many a true word spoken in jest. Have you met most Scottish people, Lir?

Yes I have :)

I've been to Scotland on business many times in the past.........Glasgow was the best, the first time I went there and asked a local for directions, it blew my mind as I couldn't understand the thick accent. And the guy just kept saying something to me and I didn't realise that he was asking me if I wanted him to repeat the directions LOL....

I have two friends who are Scottish too.......

My previous post was of course a wind up........

If the weegie was in England he would have to pay for his Uni education.
In Scotland, its free ( sponging git ).

Anyway, talking of Scots taking English jobs, hows my pal Gordy Broon and his chums getting on ?

I'll send you an e-mail about them. Anyone know the correct term for someone who likes to have sex with pot plants?

That's cool, Lir. I'm not gonna lower it and say that even I haven't met most Scottish people from having lived there for 25 years. Wind ups are healthy and needed. People make a living off of them :)

Back to the thread, it's expensive to go home for some Poles and they'd rather live cheaply in a foreign country which offers more choices as the UK usually does. Most live very modest lifestyles.

I read a report about a year ago that the majority of people who were born and raised in Scotland do not now live in Scotland, because they have migrated elsewhere.
Yes I need to give you a source, but if it is true then the Scots would be sucking the ENGLISH dry.

We have their oil, smoked salmon and Aberdeen angus, they have jobs in the England, sounds fair to me ;0)

That's not fair at all as many English folk work up north. You'd better be paying top dollar for Aberdeen Angus ;0 ;)

Thanks for the SAAS grants system btw. It saw me through university with some healthy margin.

The vast, vast majority of British people have been in employment all their lives, the number of people that have never had a job in britain is really tiny.

Polish people should go to poland if they are unemployed not scrounging off of the british taxpayers and sucking out the honey from britannias breast

Nothing against Poles but I have to agree with you. This is your country and your government should take care of your own people before anyone else. I bet, deep down inside everyone here agrees with that one. For those who might disagree at first, just try imagine the same situation in your own country, how would you feel if foreigners would be treated better than your own people.

I do agree with you, very much.

Somewhere, everything has got very twisted and the dreaded "R" word is, sadly, never too faraway should anyone dare question the current situation.

As I've said many times before, both on here and elsewhere, this situation hasn't dropped out of a clear blue sky. We've arrived at where we are after DECADES of successive Governments pretending that nothing is wrong.

There is nothing wrong in imimgration, but it needs to be controlled and we (just like anywhere) can only hold so many people.

Just seems ironic when the weegie moans about others, while he is taking from the pot without putting anything in himself.

There's hypocrisy in so many places unfortunately. The SAAS were quite generous I must say.

British people have been paying national insurance for their whole lives, polish newcomers pay a pittance and ride out the recession on the british tax payers expense

What was first law, agreement, rules, regulations or Poles?
If you are unhappy with that just change the regulations. Do not expect that people won't be very well-versed.

I understand he's British, right? If so, don't you think he has the right to use help more than foreigners in his country? I'm sure you would see it the same way in Poland. Please be honest about it.

To Peter_Olsztyn
You're right about the law, it needs to be changed

My Daddy put lots of money in that pot for me. It belongs to me and not horrible foreigners.

Please be honest about it.

The weegie goes to University paid for by me, the taxpayer.
The Polish migrant who is in Employment pays taxes, again this keeps the weegie in University.

The weegie then posts that he is upset that Polish migrants are paying tax to keep him at Uni.

Polish immigrants do not cover the amount of resources they consume. FACT

Most polish immigrant work in unskilled brain dead jobs and pay a pittance in ta from that they consume public services, council services, education, JSA, child benefits, housing benefits, NHS, it costs £5000 A year to keep one polack child in education.

It is the previous generation who contributes for the new generation and so on. My family have been paying tax for 30years plus.

It's not so much what he says, but how he says it - see below.

How can you have a reasonable discussion about immigration with someone that thinks it's ok to use words like "horrible foreigners" ?

He doesn't create or stimulate debate, he twists it to serve his own daft agenda.

I agree, he's got a point but unfortunately he's not using the right words to get more positive attention from majority of people on this forum.

Neither do British born benefit cheats, scroungers etc...errr...FACT(amundo).

NHS

How many non-British born people do the NHS hire then? Dealing with NHS daily as I do I can safely say this, in dealing with the GP's I come across many British born GP's and only some non-British born GP's. HOWEVER, as soon as I have to deal with a hospital it's reversed. A large number of the doctors and surgeons who preform absolute miracles on people are non-British born. So it's OK to utilise them but not give a hairy banana about those people who come from the same country as that doctor or surgeon?

My family have been paying tax for 30years plus.

Where did they come from before then?

Some foreigners are horrible, it's true. As long as he makes that distinction, his views have some validity.

You defend yourself, therefore you're defending at least one scrounger.

Polish people should not be given benefits after just working one year, only british citizens should have access to benefits.

as for british spongers, hang them up with piano wire or whatever; its a completely differant topic.
