"PolishForums-The Best guide to Poland"

How news of Poles around the world is a "guide to Poland" is beyond me.

Work / PAT testing electrical equipment in Poland [51]

We feel that PAT testing has become an industry in it's own right and plays on people's fears. Many companies (as demionstrated by the phone call I had) are disingenuous by suggesting that PAT testing is compulsory each year when it is not.

News / Polish couple brutally attacked by the Danish police. [46]

He's self-declared Nazi scum, and deserved it.

So you condone the actions of the police ?

The ideological beliefs of the victim are irrelevant. If he did something to provoke the attack then I am sure evidence would have been published.

The police cannot behave outside of the law and cannot behave according to their own political or ideological beliefs. They are there to uphold the law-simple as that.

News / Successful young Polish woman creates her own app and plans to take it global [2]

A positive news story about a Pole (don't choke Delphian).

A young Polish woman has created an app that helps people to spend time with their friends in real time rather than virtually. God knows-I think we need more apps like this !

Polish artist showcases her creative talent with......fruit



A little bizarre perhaps but you have to applaud the creativity behind this very talented Polish artist.

Work / PAT testing electrical equipment in Poland [51]

I believe that PAT testing is not legally required here in the UK.

I just had this discussion this morning with a company who rang to inform me that our company has a legal obligation to ensure electrical equipment is safe (which is true) but the truth is it is usually insurance policies that insist on PAT testing and not UK law.

What actually happens is loads of companies have realised they can blag their way around this and ring businesses up trying to scare the crap out of them just to get some money

Classifieds / Polish Home Carers Needed in Colchester, Essex, UK [60]

and as we can see from the wretched job advert above

Why is it wretched ? Do you realise that many people only earn £ 16k a year ? It might be breadcrumbs to you but many people have to survive on that. I'm not a fan of job agencies but they exist and we have to deal with it

@shelley1902

Many of us may earn more than £ 16,000 a year but many of us also forget that large sections of the population will be earning approx £ 16k so I don't think people should get snobby about it

Travel / Why do you visit Poland? [177]

My mum is from Czestochowa and I have been there many many times. It really depends what you are into. Krakow is a train ride away and even Zakopane is doable if you have enough time.

Other than that then the small village of Olsztyn is about 25 mins from Czestochowa with it's limestone castle ruins. There are also a number of limestone castles in the area that are worth seeing.

UK, Ireland / Muslim man abuses and threatens Polish woman in the UK [49]

I have no problem with anybody's beliefs.

So you're happy with muslims' intolerance of women's rights, homoesexuals, jews, non-muslims etc ?

However, when other people try to force their beliefs onto other people

Ever taken a trip to Tower Hamlets ?

I get what you're saying about Catholics in Poland pressuring Polish society and culture but don't allow your anti-Catholicism to open the door to mass muslim immigration as that is not the antidote.

It's one thing seeing a friendly muslim face serving you a kebab on a Friday night it's quite another when you are living next to a muslim community. Even you Harry wouldn't be happy about it.

UK, Ireland / Muslim man abuses and threatens Polish woman in the UK [49]

@Atch

Harry and his clowns won't believe me but I actually have nothing against immigration. I'm a second generation Pole myself so I know from my parents how hard it was to start a new life in a foreign country.

what I have a problem with is lack of integration and the passive creep of Islamification. If muslims change the way they adapt to a new country then let's welcome them to Poland but as things are currently then Poland should lock the doors

You talk about seeing dark coloured people like it's a novelty. Over here it is normal and in many places the non-muslims are the exception

UK, Ireland / Muslim man abuses and threatens Polish woman in the UK [49]

From nearly 6 months ago.

You disapprove of me posting a story from 6 months ago yet in the last few moments you post a story about a Pole who burnt his head with an iron...the article was written in 2012. Hypocrite. Mods please get a grip or ban me now.

Polonia / Reckless Polish Man starts wildfire in Montenegro [48]

The fact that it was a Pole that threatened Montenegro's Adriatic Coast

Wow-love the dramatic use of language.

You make it sound like he was a one-man army. I am glad that Montenegro survived this dangerous Polish thread :)

UK, Ireland / Muslim man abuses and threatens Polish woman in the UK [49]

in the unlikely event you ever visit Poland

<yawn> so tiresome Harry. I have visited Poland many many times but keep repeating your BS accusations and I will keep batting them away.

In fairness to Spiritus I don't think he's really a bigot

Well I'm not a racist. I was on the verge of settling for the label of "bigot" until I read it's definition and decided that the definition doesn't really apply to me either. I can't even say I am prejudiced as that suggests I am pre-judging when in fact my beliefs are based on fact, reality, observation and experience (four things that Harry cannot claim to have as he's never lived alongside a sizeable muslim communtity).So I am a REALIST.

I have broad shoulders so Harry can call me anything he likes (the mods seem happy to tolerate him).

And I am not "panicky about being overrun by Muslim hordes" as I live in a northern British town and I have seen what YOUR future looks like. I am worried that Poland may not understand what might happen if lessons aren't learnt which is why I try to add some balance to the propaganda spouted by Harry and his mob on here.

Atch, do you find it a paradox that text-book liberals like Harry are fast to call people bigots for criticising Islam yet Islam is one of the most intolerant religions on this planet as can be demonstrated by their beliefs about women, homosexuals, jews, non-muslims ?

Polonia / Reckless Polish Man starts wildfire in Montenegro [48]

@Atch

I think there is a fine line between writing about "Polish related matters" and then tagging every single Pole who's been involved in some crime and appears on Google.

Personally, I cannot see the use of posting about a Polish man who started a fire in Montenegro BUT if we choose to accept this then I am also free to post articles where other Poles have been involved in other parts of the world. The problem Atch is that when I start doing that then you seem to take some kind of issue with it.

Can I ask you a question ? Do you not think that certain members on here seem to spend most of their time posting negative stories about Poles under the guise that it's newsworthy and relevant because a Pole was involved ?

Poles are not always the perpetrators-sometimes they are the victims and sometimes (hard for some of you to believe) they even do good things for other people (shock horror)

In a forum about Brits in Australia, that would be highly appropriate.

@Atch

To allow posts about Polish related matters in UK and Ireland ? doh !

Where do we have a section about the Polish community in Montenegro ?
