....except that Poland loves it like an "abused" woman on a monthly and very generous shopping allowance she got "addicted" to.

Sort of calls to mind that old joke about the American kid in school who becomes friends with a English exchange student. One day the American boy sees his new pal from the UK and punches him square in the nose! The other kid falls to the ground and almost crying says, "What was that for, Billy?" The American boy, "That's for the American Revolution!" "But that was almost two hundred years ago!", so the English boy, to which our Yankee responds "Yeah, but I only learned about it today!":-)

My point here is that remembering the past, be it the German invasion of Poland, Katyn, The Holocaust etc. is certainly respectable, so long as it emboldens us to change the future rather than embitter us to hold eternal grudges based on past events.

It was until the moment Poland took the first batch of cash from Germany. There is a rule which makes all previous abuse irrelevant when the abused woman jumps into bed with the abuser.

If I were German or Russian I would tell Poland to get lost trying to dump any type of generational guilt on me.

@Lyzko

Both are important.....we should move forward,but never forget....have you forgotten or forgiven The Holocaust?

@Rich Mazur

You are just a bitter old man that hates Poland and Poles.
Probably a Russian,which rather proves my point.....

69 years ago today

Meanwhile - in the real world, my neighbour was rendered homeless by broken pipes flooding, and although she is a pensioner, and penniless, nobody from the town hall helped her (there is no extreme hardship fund).

What a stupid thread. The war is here, right now, for many.

history.

Yes - but "history" in Poland is an excuse to do nothing about here and now. History is an easier subject for populists. Enjoy England - where if the council doesn't repair the pavements they get sanctioned.

PS There is plenty of "history" on my street. Most buildings still have rocket and bullet holes all over the walls. Don't get me started about how pathetic some people are here.

If you hate life in Poland so much,why don't you return to The UK?

why don't you return to The UK?

I intend to Miloslaw - because I have seen how pensioners are treated here, and I don't care for that myself, although some of my older friends cope very well with it. I'm made of weaker stuff:)

"I intend to Miloslaw - because I have seen how pensioners are treated here, and I don't care for that myself, although some of my older friends cope very well with it. I'm made of weaker stuff".

Mate,if you don't have some money in the bank it ain't that much better here.....

I have worked very hard, to expect safe pavements and so on. You have them in Norway. We don't here. Instead we have people who need no encouragement from Miloslaw or your nationalist self to bang on about "69 years ago today" becasue that absolves from from providing a social service. Which you get, which is why you're not moaning. In fact, why should you care whether Tri-City is "Mafia"?

The good thing about Tri-City is that the people actually do try to be normal, instead of sharing the crazy theories of Chairman Kaczynski and his mob. That's why you come out consistently with this "mafia" comment. You choose not to live here - so it's got sod all to do with you anyhow I would have said.

if you don't have some money in the bank

Who said anything about money Miloslaw? I was saying that a neighbour is penniless, flooded out, and no one can or is willing to help her. She has some friends who feed her and let her sleep on their couch sometimes, but she is 69 for God's sake. There should be an emergency fund for this type of thing. In fact, as it is social housing, anywhere else the town hall would have to temporarily rehouse her.

What that has to do with my personal finances I don't understand. Instead of being concerned for its citizens, the Poles prefer to dwell on their past struggles.

here where you err. Is not all about history or the past, not even close, It is about putting such corrupt people behind the bars, to stop theft. You should actually listen to some or other news outlets instead of reacting with your English leftie reflux/reaction to 'nationalists'.

Your English nationalist might be bad. I'm not gonna argue with you about it. Nationalist in Poland are not the same - each country has different nationalists like each country has different folk music.

Hence they want to reform courts bevosue commies and all element that sits there are corrupt too and in cahoots with your mafia in tri-city for example. Yet, you rather stick to them thieving scum who won't help that old lady just to spite your imaginary 'fascists'. That is the next level of stupid. So stop being a hypocrite or so called useful idiot and take responsibility for supporting them people who don't give a F F about that lady in need.

By the way PiS is a centrist left leaning a party and I don't really support them as they are softies. Anyways once JK dies they will just crumble.

Nonsense. An old lady, living in rented accommodation, which is flooded out, would have to be rehoused, albeit temporarily, by social services. It's the law.
