I didn't think the talking clock had an opinion...

In all seriousness, you're getting too excited with this noimmigration. Some people say central, some say eastern...some just say European...

If u want to be sure noimmigration, do a contrastive study between Poland and Ukraine. Few, if any, would doubt that Ukraine is an Eastern European country. If u can convince PF members that Poland is distinct in the ways u outlined then u have a good case

to convince us

Who are you talking about ?...

you are eastern european

Actually my father comes from extrem-western France and my mother from extrem-western Poland... ;)

every article I read on polish, ukranian, slovakian, bulgarian, romanian immigrants describes them as eastern european

I think Ukrainians, Bulgarians and Romanians are Eastern Europeans. Poles and Slovaks no.

yu are central europeans, with eastern european cultures, language, history, ideology, politics, etc

Actually Polish culture is a mix of Western and Eastern cultures, language is Slavic then more Eastern, i must say, but influenced by many "Western" languages...History is known for being very mixed too. Politics ? Liberalism is Eastern politic ?...

I give up

happy now lol

Sure i am ;)

a mix of western culture, I dont thinkso the soviet union only fell in 1989. poland is in NO way liberla. It is very conservative and overly religious unlike the mainly non religious west.

Bulgarians and Romanians are Balkans.Totally different heritage from Ukraine.
I consider Ukraine as FSU country,former Soviet Union.It has many similarities to other FSU countries like Belarus and Russia.

I agree with southern, Bulgarians and Romanians are more Balkan. OK, they were poor but so are African countries, that doesn't make then Eastern European. Lithuania and Latvia are classic Eastern European countries, even Azerbaijan/Kazakstan etc

Actually it is now.

It is very conservative and overly religious unlike the mainly non religious west.

Portugal, Ireland ?...Even Italy. Maybe not as conservative but religious.

Bulgarians and Romanians are Balkans.Totally different heritage from Ukraine

Yeah, i must say that i was more reserved about these 2 countries...

Poland is more liberal in the sense that fewer and fewer people are practising Catholics. After the death of JPII, the numbers have steadily declined. Scotland is very religious too, Catholics AND Protestants. What about the Anglican church?

church rates in scotland are as few as 10 % church attendance, mainly by the elderly. yeah very religious indeed.

scots define themselves as catholics and athiest not because of religion but because of political reaosns and sectarianism
Seanus 15 | 19,706

U don't have to be a church-goer to be religious. Where did u pull 10% from? Those people who go shopping on a Sunday or do sth with their families instead of going to church still believe in God. Bibles are allowed in households u know!?

You have a point noimmigration about sectarianism. But Scotland isn't NI. How do u know what these people really believe? Have u interviewed them?

What is wrong with eastern european term?It sounds exotic,something different.
Seanus 15 | 19,706
29 Dec 2007 #196
Eastern European may drum up images of poor people but it is something different. The current European climate is towards harmonisation so why make divisions like west/central/east? It may just serve to show extended participation in a collective European agenda

Eastern European

Eastern European means a popular touristic destination.Everybody is fed up with the West.

Central is a very popular destination too, Poland and the Czech Rep (particularly Prague) are very visited, and more each year ;)

Of course ;) I eat some Swedish food, once drank a Swedish beer, ate Norwegian salmon at Christmas Eve, and the rest yesterday...I never hated something Skandi (food, at least...)...

@noimmigration

I did some tinking here. Considering the proximity of creatures like you, I would like Poland to be an Eastern Europen country.

Keep out.
Don't call us.
We'll call you.
