immergrints

Sweet Jesus.

hear about the pady who try to blow up a car? he burnt his lips on the exhaust
irish scum

Thats not nice, WalesBoy, should that not be WelshBoy? I thought we were buds.

Anyway, I am going to give you some advice. The city of Radom is crying out for foreign workers. Go there, great wages and no unemployment. Drop everything, sell your laptop and head over there. You will be on the pigs back in no time.

Let me know how you get on.

not sure what myth lies behind that, probably something like: 'Poland is of course poorer so they definitely have less food and worse than we so since we can't afford meat then they can't afford proper food'.

Learn to read and learn some history.

Food supplies in communist countries were never plentiful and in Poland they were especially erratic from the mid 70's thru the mid 80's. Talk to your parents and/or grandparents about what they had to eat back then and stores with nothng but vinegar and food rationing cards.

In those kinds of situations, people don't experiment, they go with tried and true recipes.

Exactly right, mafketis. Toilet paper wasn't even guaranteed at times.

As for language, well, Poles learn English in school for quite some years. Brits, for the most part, don't learn Polish and still we are expected to speak it in administrative centres. Natives will speak their own unless they are prepared to invest the time in understanding others and we all know about the rat race.

Learn how to spell you freak...no wonder you dont have prospects in the UK...

Same as the British in some respects up until the 1970 / 1980, the mentality stayed with them.
