/ Why can't unemployed Polish people on benefits just leave UK and go home please?
Having read the many post here are my observations.
If these facts are true the benefit system is to blame, I am 60+ now living in Poland on a small private pension (£500 a month)
I could no longer afford to live in England after working all my life then being made redundant the only benefit I received was the "job seekers allowance" of around £60 a week for 6 months.
The 12 months before I left the UK (South Yorkshire) the only work I could find was short term agency work and I was mostly working with Poles (all hard working compared to the Brits.), I speak Polish and have not met these Polish scroungers, but I have met plenty of English scroungers who have never worked a day in their life, abuse the system, and will still receive a pension (Gordon Brown has most of mine!!).
As far as I know it is not that easy to get a council house, in most areas there are long waiting lists.
The UK benefit needs sorting out, there are no benefits for people who have worked all their life, bought a house and have a very small income, I have no problem with people using the system, I only wish I could have got some financial help!!!
Please no rants or name calling I am only stating facts!!!
P.S. Health and losing my job caused my marriage to break up, my wife has the house, I used my redundancy money to pay mortgage etc. luckily I have found a Polish woman who has given me a roof over my head.
