What I am saying is that there are no anti-immigrant riots prevalent in our culture.
Funny, I seem to recall reading about a lot of tension in the inter-war period and a lot of it being aimed at Ukrainians (but, of course, they weren't immigrants then, they were part of Poland) and then there were attacks on Jews and Ukrainians in £odż in the early 20th century (but of course, it wasn't technically Poland then, so they still weren't immigrants). Let's not mention Akcja Wisła, shall we?
But perhaps one of the main reasons there wasn't such an outcry about Ukrainian immigration in 1990's to Poland was that it didn't happen with the intensity that it did in UK with the Polish, or did it?
I have a couple of Ukrainian friends who were here in 1990's and are still here. I shall ask them.
no automatic flushes in the toilets, no plumbing in most houses, sink drains leak out to open canals, cinemas are old, cinema screens are ancient, no food that would have taste apart from beef. The people are not gentlemanly but crass.
I think another thing to remember is that Ukrainians and Russians had been present and working in Poland before the 1990's. Most Poles who were in UK before the EU thing were old immigrants/ex-service personel.
I don't think you can really compare the two 'migrations' that easily.
