History / Warsaw in 1988. Military presence? [2]

Can anyone tell me how large the military presence was on the streets of Warsaw in 1998. And how much security there was at the airport?

I apologise for such broad question but I'm just trying to get an idea.

Okay. I think you're completely missing the point here. No doubt it was a very difficult time and I'm sure it made you a better person. But I'm just interested in the cultural side of it. The movements that emerged out of it.

I'm not looking for an argument, just some ideas.

Today's youth is sooooo tame in comparison!

I grew up in the 80's in Ireland and I feel the same about the young people there today. No imagination. Still maybe a few years of recession and poverty will fix that :-)

Amazing? We were in survival mode. It was really hard time.

maybe amazing is the wrong word.... Intrigueing might have been better. A whole new Europe was being shaped here at the time.

Life / IS Poland in danger of becoming the next multi cultural sink hole? [201]

Also when the time comes and we are short of people, the desired immigration should come form Ukraine and Belarus-similar cultures, language, one generation and they are through and trough Polish

Why dont Polish people go to those counties when they need work?

History / Info on Poland in 1988 - researching a short film [21]

Hey.

Im researching a short film.

I'm looking for any English literature that describes what it was like to live in Poland at the end of the 80s. Websites, books etc.

I paricularly want to read about the strikes in Kracow in 1988.

Also I know there was a wave of Punk music in Poland in the 80's. Were there clubs for this music in Kracow in 1988?

Can anyone help me out? Cheers

UK, Ireland / WHAT IS SO SPECIAL LIVING IN U.K [90]

Have either of you lived in Britain?

I went to Southampton Uni for four years. Imagine Limerick mixed with Harlend and Wolf. Desperately depressing place.

The people are more educated. Food is better. They can speak their own language properly. They dress better. The women are more elegant. Public transport is better.

Law / Car Insurance costs in Poland. [24]

20% discount for having an anti theft tracker device installed in the car

How much did that cost? And does it work?

How much are those anti theft tracker devices? Never heard of them. Are they effective?

Poles working in the UK sent home an estimated £1.8billion last year.

How much money did BRits make buying and selling Polish property last year?

Yes, the insurance companies will ask you what claims you have had in the past few years, and yes, they will give you credit for that.

do you think a letter from my insurance company in ireland will make a difference?

Wow. While that seems like a strange way of doing things, it would be great news for me. Thanks

Language / Polish locative and case declensions [16]

Of course. Duh me!!!

Fair play for learning it though. I keep saying I'm gonna take it up properly. I'm kind of ashamed at this stage. This year hopefully...fingers crossed.
