You will have to put up with it until you are able to prove that "British" is a race ;-p

How much longer will ANTI BRITISH DISCRIMINATION be tolerated? Is that comment racist? Oops?

Stories like these are for tabloids.

But I did read today that some filthy-rich Russian is about to buy The Independent. Maybe he will change the name from The Independent to MY PRAVDA.

It should be closed down and he should be sent back to Poland, Anti British racism in Britain cant be tolerated anymore.

Being Polish he will probably blame it on someone else.

Have the locals not shut it down already?

So, the 'POLSKI SKLEP' in Goole bans British customers, what should be done about it? What will be done about it? This Pole knows he can get away with it and he's having a laugh at us, it could only happen here

I agree, "discrimination" is a much better choice. I do not pretend to understand the rest of your post.

right maciej, this story stinks of BS and BNP

As a Polish person I am very glad to see this BNP poster:

So much appreciation from the BNP... Touching.

All that effort to defend their country in the past and now the Brits are being invaded by hordes of foreigners who hold nothing but contempt for them.

Contact Humberside Police who sent a 'Community cohesion officer' EH?

Which means the police were involved but there were evidently no grounds for prosecution.

Or The Goole Times and ask them?

A respected journal of record no doubt. I must stop reading the Telegraph and switch to the Goole Times. :P

fiercely ANTI BRITISH but we are too scared to do anything about it, how much longer can we put up with ANTI BRITISH RACISM?

Your eccentric use of capitalisation screams racist Troll!

Some would call it emphasis, jonni. I would like to see a record of that refusal. When reactions like that become known, you can expect reprisals.

All of the guy's posts were trolling.

I would like to see a record of that refusal.

So would I. Probably there was no refusal on the grounds of nationality.

When reactions like that become known, you can expect reprisals.

To me, it sounds like some sort of Vicky Pollard mouthing off to a shopkeeper and trying to make a big deal of it.

I think he was provoking a bit but not trolling, jonni.

Refusing on the grounds of nationality would be lame and Poles wouldn't lose business so cheaply. Tit-for-tat just isn't fitting here.

Vicki Pollard, LOL. Yeah but, no but, yeah but.....

Classic trolling.

Exactly.

Sounds a bit similar to the teenager I saw tonight throwing a kebab all over the owner of the shop due to some imagined slight. At least the shopkeeper threw it back even though it ended up all over the pavement on Marszałkowska. Chilli sauce everywhere.

Yeah but, no but, yeah but.

She'd probably stuck a kielbasa down her knickers.

Nah, I think trolling comes from simpler minds. His posts were well thought out. Now, if the teenager was denied alcohol.....

A guy starting a business just to blow it all away on a sentiment? Puhlease, we'd serve a pig in blue stripes if it makes us money, the girl probably wanted to buy alcohol or whatnot and got pissy when they wouldnt budge.

probably

Probably....According to the report, she wanted to try 'something different', obviously this Pole doesn't believe in the dangerous Multi Cultural experiment and social engineering that has been forced upon us. If she was so desperate to buy alcohol why would she go to a Polish shop when she could get it much cheaper elsewhere, it doesn't add up and given the uppity attitude Poles have in this country, she has learned a valuable lesson in life. This guy shows all the tolerance and respect for this country that we have grown to expect from ungrateful and above all unwanted immigrants who quite simply refuse to integrate, show nothing but contempt for their host nation and know the lunatic, liberal PC ideology spouted out by lefist Guardinista types who dangerously peddle this nonsense favours them, nothing will ever be done about this, even if anyone in authority personally felt this was wrong they wouldn't dare say so for fear of losing their job, being branded a 'Nazi' and never being able to get a public sector gig/non job ever again, now if a shopkeeper refused to serve Poles, we would never hear the end of it, this one has been ignored, swept under the carpet and neatly filed away. Catch you later, I have to pop into my office to catch up on some paperwork I forgot and plough through some EU directives we just got sent, great way to spend a saturday morning. Obviouly Mr Sokrates is talking from personal experience, isn't it incredible how Poles on this forum are so quick to stereotype the British and other nationalities, yet if anyone dares to stereotype Poles, it just ain't cricket, the amount of vitriol Polish people come out with on this forum amazes me, I didn't realise just how much they really dislike us and this country, it really is an eye opener.

Maybe she thought the dumb polack wouldn't know the licensing laws and woud sell her something alcoholic cos he's like too stupid to read the label in english, innit? Right? Whatever?

Yet more speculation. I Bet and maybe are hardly conclusive, it amazes me that people assume she wanted alcohol and that it's impossible for a 17 year old to get it anywhere other than the local Polish shop, I know Asian run shops that sell booze to kids and I'm sure if she really wanted a bottle of cider or whatever she could get it easily enough, I'm positive 17 year olds could get booze before the Polish invasion and the way people are harping on here, anyone would assume that nobody under 18 has ever had a drink in Poland. I don't drink because I don't like the effect of alcohol, but people just assume that this girl does, people just assume the worst, people just assume she is a liar, people just assume she is banned from other shops, I don't know the full story but it could be a mistake, just like it was when Forza AW Were mistakenly accused of favouring Poles or when the IT company based in Bristol mistakenly placed a job ad favouring someone of Indian origin or when Poles mistakenly claim child benefit in Poland and this country or when Polish women mistakenly get pregnant and get free abortions here or when asylum seekers mistakenly end up here rather than the nearest safe country, this shopkeeper may have made a genuine mistake by refusing to serve British people, he might even like British people and this country, anyone can make a mistake, he might have thought telling someone to get out was actually good customer service. I bet the post office in Cardiff that banned a woman from sending parcels to her son serving in Afghanistan made a mistake too, maybe even the British government made a mistake by predicting 13,000 Poles would emigrate to this country, Kaley Leighton might even have made a mistake by expecting to be served a non alcoholic drink which she was even willing to pay for in a shop in her own country, I mean, I often buy fruit juice from my local shop or supermarket and if I'm ever refused service, I'm there must be some misunderstanding or mistake, happens all the time really.

Exactly. That's the point. We don't know and we don't have the whole facts. maybe she didn't want alcohol, but that doesn't mean that just because kids can get it elsewhere they might not try to get it in that shop.

By the same argument, kids have been buying and are able to buy soft drinks in all kinds of places... so why go to a Polish shop?

You are the one jumping on the band-wagon, saying it's all anti British. maybe she was part of a gang who'd been making anti Polish remarks, maybe she was just ugly... WE don't know.

Again more speculation, maybe she wanted a Polish soft drink and thought going to a Polish shop might broaden her horizons, maybe she was curious about Polish people, God forbid, she might even have wanted to make Polish friends. Most towns have international food shops, they have a wider choice than supermarkets and if a British person wants to try something they are unfamiliar with, it makes sense to go to one of the shops but it is up to the staff if they want to be helpful and offer advice or to throw you out because you are the wrong nationality.

I just wonder if the reporter who also claimed she was refused service followed this story through and what the outcome was. Given the way many immigrants behave and their open contempt for British people, if this story is true, it wouldn't surprise me one bit, Poles aren't exactly renowned for their friendliness after all.

As for anti British, you only have to look at many of the comments on this forum and the way many Poles who live here run this country down, talk about biting the hand that feeds you.

Eat sh*t and die buddy, we did the work you didnt want to do and when your employers realised we can manage companies even better then wash dishes pissants like you started to moan.

How did our hard work bring your country down?

Again more speculation

And what are you doing? You're speculating as well with the added difference that your speculation is undertoned with anti-Polish sentiments.

I'm lucky enough to know many friendly ones who I would go out of my way for. They tend to have international connections and think outside the box a bit more. I know the unfriendly type you are referring to, though.

There is a certain type of Pole that makes educated Poles embarrassed. Their willingness to accept any work really tells us sth I'd say. Arrogance gets in the way of rationality sometimes. Look at Pudzianowski, a guy I really admire. He thinks he doesn't need a trainer now. That's absurd!

As a final comment, there is a fine line between resilience and being downright hardnosed. Some come down on the wrong side.

Again more speculation,

Like I said, of course it is speculation, but does she say the drink she wanted to try was a Polish drink? Where in the article doe the girl say the shopkeeper sai he had a policy of not serving English. Does it actually occur to you or your ilk that he might have asked her if she was English becaue she woldn't understand Polish if she wasn't.

Oh sorry, that'sall speculation, YOU know the whole truth

I'd rather speculate than just swallow the anti-Polish story, hook, and sinker. How many other stories look cut and dried on paper but then bits and pieces come seeping out?

Now, let's get back to the subject matter, judging by the agressive anti British vitriol being displayed on here, it's doubtful if we will ever find out why this 'Polski sklep' can ban British customers and nothing will ever be done about it, unless of course the reason is, this country has gone so Politically correct that eventually even being British will be considered 'racist' or 'discriminatory', this guy knew he could get away with it and he has. So much for multi culturalism.

Now, let's get back to the subject matter,

One teenager was refused service at Polish shop, based on the fact you try to make a point here ...but all we learned is that you are not voice of reason but voice of prejudice ....by the way you have forgotten about ... swans!
