A Polish worker has come up with an unusual excuse after being caught in the act with a vacuum cleaner. The building contractor claimed he was cleaning his underpants with Henry Hoover when he was found naked and on his knees in a hospital's staff canteen.

..and the daily mail, daily express etc. etc... It seems you cant pick up a newspaper these days without reading something about 'dodgy' Poles in the UK. The Daily Express (my mom buys it!) ran an article on Saturday about Polish criminals being sent back home at the expense of the Polish government. Today I read that the Sussex police are actively recruiting Polish people as Community Support Officers in an attempt to combat the ever increasing crime caused by Poles in the region, particularly in Eastbourne and Brighton... although apparantly you do need to speak English too.

If Polish people object to these stories maybe they should warn their compatriots not to make themselves newsworthy by making sweet love with household appliances in public conveniences.

Also if you feel newspapers are out of order publicising these stories why are you doing exactly the same?

particularly in Eastbourne

Which given that the average age of the population in Eastbourne is 107 means there are Polish senile delinquents over here, hardened criminals who have honed their skills by pushing in queues and sticking the ends of their umbrellas in my foot.

It's been ONE so far. And since you Britons claim there are millions and millions of us in the UK, then 1 of those millions is not that bad.

Besides the user 'espana' is not a Pole.

I knew this would make it onto the forum as soon as I saw it haha. I loved Russell Brand's letter to the press about it [printed in the Sun (Pervy Pole)].

Waaaaah!! I love this story... reminds me of when I was at uni, and one of our house-mates was caught erm... how do I put this.... er.... with his knob in a milk bottle.

You must have wide-necked milk bottles in the UK. I'm serious. They can't be more than an inch/2.5cm across at the top.

It never occured to us to ponder the dimensions, but it was a long time before I could take milk in my tea.

There was a story in the papers quite a while ago about this Polish bloke, nicknamed the Polish Borat, who was running around groping women in London or somewhere, and when he got caught he claimed it was 'normal' in Poland and he was just being friendly and flirtatious, cos its in the Polish nature and culture. Idiot.

I thought of this for some reason [can't find clip in English] From Scary Movie.

A powerful washing machine can be quite expensive. 1000 rpm? I'll take it.
It seems from the number of stories, you'd be better off with an old cheap vacuum cleaner that is NOT too powerful. Eubanks don't do it for you though.

I take it you don't mean Chris Eubank LOL!

It's not anti-Polish at all, it just happens to be a Polish guy! Just a pity that the tabloids have nothing better to fill their pages with. Why the Telegraph bothered with it I don't know.

But...er...I wish them both well for the future...

A way in which it might be considered anti-Polish:
The length [and the fact Telegraph ran the story]. I can imagine this story having so many column inches devoted to it if the guy was a celebrity. I can only imagine someone originally from here receiving a couple paragraphs on the subject in the papers or maybe mention in the feature journalists' [i.e Lorraine Kelly, Rikki Brown]pages.

Maybe nothing in it. Either way... so pleased this is newsworthy...

What's the big deal? Harry does this every day and nobody gives him grief. I don't think it is creepy at all he has named his vacuum Filios.

'Newspapers always have to mention certain details about the people about whom they report.' said Osiol, 31. 'It's a national disgrace. This country is going to the dogs in a handcart.' The horticulturist added bitterly.

I take it you don't mean Chris Eubank LOL!

The Eubank: A non-electric carpet cleaner, popular in the 1970s, along with flared trousers that worked much better on linoleum tiled floors.

It beats as it sweeps as it cleans.

"Its custom to hoover your underpants in Poland" lol

thats what made me laugh ....

It seems you cant pick up a newspaper these days

i have always you can wipe your a$$ with one and more sh!t comes off the pages than from a persons a$$

with his knob in a milk bottle.

HAHAHAHAHA sorry you guys are killing me tonight

You must have wide-necked milk bottles in the UK. I'm serious. They can't be more than an inch/2.5cm across at the top.

depends on the size of the tackle i guess ... i have seen small ... hahaha

but it was a long time before I could take milk in my tea.

i bet ... first thought white stuff from the knob in my tea

Washing machines for women are much safer.

but are they as versatile as a rampant rabbit ....

The building contractor claimed he was cleaning his underpants with Henry Hoover

Doesn't quite ring true. As most Poles in the UK only hang out with other Poles I think it would have been Henryk Hooverski

cos its in the Polish nature and culture. Idiot.

It probably is. you must remember that Poland and the Poles are at least three hundred years behind other advanced western countries. There are poles who would not know what a vacuum cleaner is. It was the Russian Army in Poland after World War 2 that introduced the Poles to toilet paper.
