UK, Ireland / Oxford Polish bride 'heartbroken' over arrest - accusations of sham marriage [126]

I don't know how it is measured which marriages are fake and which ones are genuine. I wasn't aware there were legal limits on marriage at all. It's a religious ceremony and has no place in being legally recognised. The system is open to abuse and abused it shall be, no point blaming people for not respecting the "sanctity" of marriage.

I'm amazed that people have the arrogance to judge the Polka/Polki who did this. As far as getting money is concerned, this isn't that extreme. If you're naive enough to think that anything except money matters to most people, then you need to grow up.

£2K!!! ...She could have saved that up in a few months, even working a low paid job!

Sorry, the rest of the world doesn't sit in your priveleged shoes, princess. You're seriously out of touch with the reality of things if you think upwards of a a few thousand can be saved up within a few months.

UK, Ireland / Brit Polonia fighting anti-Polish stereotypes [46]

I don't get it. You criticize the Poles for being racist, proclaim that Britain is great because it isn't ethnically homogenous, yet you also agree profusely with the most racist and generally ignorant person on the forum?

History / "Poland's Concentration Camp" ?? [570]

I'll briefly explain; I've had conversations with people who don't know anything about WWII

Then you shouldn't waste your time talking to such people. It would take a massive effort of being willfully ignorant to not know anything about the largest war the world has ever seen. I don't see the point in adjusting something just to cater to the dumbest possible people. People like that need a lot more than some phrase changes to get some sense knocked into them.

That affects innocent Poles who are considered the bad guys.

There are no "bad guys" anymore. WWII is over, Nazism is dead, that's it. Anyone who thinks otherwise isn't going to be dissuaded by calling Polish concentration camps "Concentration camps located in Poland".

What's the problem? Those camps were located in Poland. Calling them Polish concentration camps leaves a little room for misinterpretation (linguistically), but everyone knows who they were managed by.

UK, Ireland / Are Polish people moving back home from the UK? [68]

Because Britain has never, ever benefited from the labour of a non-domestic people. This island was transformed into a super-rich and comfortable land all on the shoulders of the populace, and no one else.

UK, Ireland / Do Polish People Litter their own country (just like they do in the UK)? [84]

However, there are depositorites here in which people can put glass, bottles etc etc.

I don't know if it's just a local thing, but there are now trucks that function much the same as bin collecting which will swing by every week to pick up recyclables like glass and tin, and the same for hedge trimmings.

UK, Ireland / Are Polish people moving back home from the UK? [68]

How many Polish are leaving the UK as of late? and why?

Considering that we never even knew how many were here in the first place, this question also does not have an answer.

UK, Ireland / Poles living in the UK returning home or not? [63]

Why are there so many unemployed in the UK. Don't people want to work there?

Quite simply... yes. There are entire towns where people just don't have, want, nor seek employment or education. They are mistakenly referred to as the working class, even though they don't work. They live their lives by leeching from the government in benefit money, which is ridiculously high. It's been shown that you can make more money unemployed than you can in low-tier employment. I even knew one unbelievably lazy middle-class moron who got 500 GBP a month (living with his parents) for having aspergers. That's more than I made when I was working 25 hours a week.

Immigration is also a factor, but it's by no means the main one.

Genealogy / Polish equivalent of "Jessie"? [31]

It's a stretch, but maybe "Czesława" was given the diminutive of "Czessy" in English, and this mutated into "Jessie". It seems likely that the name was diminunized at some point.

That's pretty shallow. In any case, most people (and by "people" I mean "women") dye their hair. Black is the current "in" colour to have, so you might disappointed there.

News / UK might have anti-Polish socialist Prime Minister [29]

David Miliband, whose grandad left Poland in 1920. Grandad's brother went east to join Stalin. Father was a socialist theorist and intellectual.

Grandfather went to a Slavic country... Father is a socialist (in Europe?!?!) and, worst of all, an intellectual. What further proof do we need that David Milliband is a Pole-hating monster?

Tell us something we dont know..still descrimatated in the 21st century

Is this one of those magical times when you remember that the United Kingdom doesn't just consist of England, England, England and England? Because unless you're talking about Northern Ireland, there is no observant or objective person that would say Catholics are discriminated against in the UK. Since you always mistake your country for being only England, I'm going to rightfully assume you meant "discriminated against in England", which is even more false.

If you meant that a Catholic cannot become Prime Minister, then I'm going to assume that whatever you were smoking when you said David Milliband was attractive is still in your system, because that is also a bunch of crap. This is a majority-Protestant and secular country, which means that a Catholic candidate would simply not get as many votes as an identical candidate who happens to be Protestant. Thankfully, this country does not resemble the U.S in the shameful popularity contest that elections are, so the religion of a potential Prime Minister is very rarely called into question. As for Tony Blair, he kept his conversion a secret because it would just make him more unpopular than he already was, it would also cause unnecessary tensions, and most of all it was irrelevant to his political career at the time, and still is.

Catholic schools are being invaded by muslims who demand prayer rooms (can you imagine a catholic kid in a muslim school being given any kind of concessions?)

Catholic kid in a Muslim school, where? Not in the UK. However, if you went to some Middle-Eastern countries like Jordan and Lebanon, you'd see that Christians in Muslim schools get their own worshipping facilities, and vice-versa. Sorry if this fact collides with your ULTRA EXTREME OMG ALARMIST THE WORLD IS SO UNFAIR agenda, but sometimes you need to get a dose of reality.

there mere fact an English Catholic can not be the Priminister of his own country is a prime example

There you go again with the "England is the UK" thing. Pray tell, why does an English person have more right to be Prime Minister than a Welshman, a Scot, or even an Irishman?

So yes we are descriminated against, have been for over 500 years

Haha, hilarious. You're actually playing oppression olympics with the Catholic card? What an ungrateful, ignorant, insular, spoiled brat you are.

History / Slavic vs Germanic thinking.... and the philosophical differences [251]

It was proved that 36 % of mixed Slavic couples have children with uncurable genetic disorders.

That doesn't make sense. It's certainly true that having sex with people of the same genetic background helps to ensure the survival of specialized genetic diseases, and it's also true that people are more attracted by the pheremones of people with a more different genetic background to them (not necessarily a different ethnicity though, or at least this hasn't been explored). 36% is, however, a ridiculously huge number, so there is either something wrong with that study, or it has been communicated incorrectly.

Love / Scottish & Polish relationships [229]

Poles and Scotts can do bussines. I can imagine new free Scottland as part of future Slavic Confederation. Poland should offer protection to Scottland from English oppresores

Haha, beautiful. I couldn't come up with this kind of comedy if I tried.

History / The Two Saddest Nations on Earth... Poles and Jews [119]

Have I ever said it's about DNA? I call someone a father because he acted like a father for me, not if his DNA is same same as me...

I am speaking generally, in terms of this discussion, this forum, and how this forum reflects peoples real mindsets.

Said it before and will say it again- Jews are a nasty race.

Say it as many times as you like, you'll sound stupid each and every time.

History / The Two Saddest Nations on Earth... Poles and Jews [119]

What you're taught is a different matter entirely from what is being discussed. Unfortunately this matter comes up very often, especially here; people feel certain illogical and senseless things based on very little, usually on ancestry, which yes, I consider to be total BS. Memory, morals, attitudes, principles, knowledge, information, objectivity, likes, dislikes... absolutely none of this stuff has been proven to be linked to DNA. I don't see the need for people to carry unnecessary phantom burdens based on next to nothing. Certainly there is zero need for a modern-day Pole or German to feel shame or pride for what happened several decades ago.

History / The Two Saddest Nations on Earth... Poles and Jews [119]

I hope I'm not the only one who finds it absurd that people feel responsibility at the deeds of people long dead. Even if every person in your country and family was an evil genocidal maniac, where is the sound logic in assuming responsibility for something and someone you have no control over?

News / Poland to penalise commie symbols [27]

Symbols killed my father and raped my mother, I'm glad someone has the sense to finally ban them. Symbols are inherently evil and harbouring one is a crime against everything natural and good.

History / The Two Saddest Nations on Earth... Poles and Jews [119]

Who really gives a **** about old petty vendetta's? Hatred for the sake of hatred (because that's usually what it is, don't romanticize it by thinking there's some "deepness" behind it) is just pointless, and only serves to disadvantage those who choose hate as their path in life. Changing hearts and minds; noble idea, but ultimately pointless, in my opinion. I've yet to see it work, but by all means keep trying if you want, if you have the patience. The best thing to do is to ignore such things, they aren't even worth the kilobytes that this thread takes up.

Life / Polish (in comparison to English and Indian) have amazing culture [60]

you cant have love without sex.

Simply not true... at all.

Huh? So if your wife was paralyzed and couldn't have sex you wouldn't love her anymore? How shallow.

I don't see anywhere in that scenario where sex is out of the question ;)

Travel / Poland from a Persian Tourist's Perspective [269]

I stand by my statement that Israeli soldiers never raped an Arab woman. You can say whatever you want, but that is a fact. (This was actually studied by an anti-zionist professor in Israel who said that this is an example of Israeli racism, since it proves that israelis find Arab women not worth raping. This is the absurdity that some people reach in demonizing israel.)

Are you naive? Rape is both an inevitability and a tool of war. THAT is a fact. What is also a fact is that the IDF has both; free reign throughout certain Arab areas, and absolutely no one to deter them from abuse. Soldiers have committed worse acts with even less room than that before.

UK, Ireland / Help Renouncing UK Citizenship and gaining Polish one [24]

I'm confused. You want to needlessly give up British citizenship (something VERY useful) in favour of Polish citizenship (not so useful) so that you can move to Poland and live there, which you can already do due to your EU citizenship?

You mean Polish citizenship...EU isnt a country where one can be a citizen..one can merely move more freely...

You may think you're being clever by desperately trying to contradict me at every turn, but in the end you always prove yourself to be the fool you are.
