Don't let Poles from the UK go home

If all the Poles left POland and went home tomorrow, I think alot of people would say "shame - I quite liked them really". They would have to find something else to moan about. Is it that the British are a nation of moaners?

(as you could have put all this is one thread just an observation ;) )

It's not possible to let or not let someone - especially that Poland is now in the EU so Poles may stay and live anywhere they want.

I Have a great admiration for the Polish people as a whole.
And think it would wound our countries culture greatly if they left.
I for one would be sad to see them go.. They contribute a lot to our society.
Unlike some who come here.

But like Hello said. " Its not possible to make them stay. Or not. "

Merged: Financial Times : "Poles go home to greener pastures"

next form series of the articles from FT. Showing that in is not going to take a lot of time, when discussions about Poles in UK will be much different than they are now.,8233,poles_go_home_to_greener_pastures,artykul_ft.html

More and more Poles who moved to west European countries after Poland joined the EU in 2004 are coming to the same conclusion. There are no firm numbers on the flow of migrants in a borderless Europe where many people work seasonally, returning frequently to Poland by bus or cheap airline. But anecdotal evidence suggests the outflow is diminishing and people are starting to come home.

Finally, many Poles, like Ms Tatulinska, found it was easy to get low paid, entry-level jobs in Britain, but much more difficult to break into professional work where the pay would be enough to contend with the high living costs of British cities. They are finding it much easier to get on the career ladder back home. “I say to our recruits, ‘Stay and work in Poland and in a few years the people who’ve gone to work in England will be back and they’ll be working for you,’” said Pawel Lobejko of Accenture, the consultancy, at a conference on labour migration.

good luck to those that go back home, its nice to see that something positive is happening...

I dont expect the mass exadus will really affect the UK since there will be Hungarians, Lithuanians and all the rest to fill their places and I dont mean that in a derogetory way at all, its just true.
