UK, Ireland / Crying Polish truck driver on British roads is Internet hit [269]

I don't know why you are getting so upset about it.

You know, you are a mature woman so you know that every case should be judged separately . Your case was different . Period .
If it was serious he would be disarmed and charged in a minute I can assure you .

Just use your common sense when judging this situation. The cops were totally aware of the fact that he was totally harmless person and was using this knife for his dinner, that`s exactly why they started a show in front of the camera and that was mean !. They knew from the very begining whom they were dealing with otherwise the whole situation would be handled without a cameraman .

You people who defend those cops just show lack of sensitivity and can`t judge this case objectively, because you are British and thus you easily can fall into a prejudice. So , don`t call me the one who lacks obejectivity . From a legal point of view they acted unprofessionally .

UK, Ireland / Crying Polish truck driver on British roads is Internet hit [269]

In February I got nabbed in a typical traffic cop trap.

Did they film you , laughed at you , I bet not .

Where did you actually see him waiving with a knife . Thtat`s just a hearsay . Yoiu are not a lawyer , do you ? If you were you would know that`s a hearsay and needs to be proved. But you come into a conclusion without any substantial evidence . You would lose every case in the court . How do you know about this fact from ?

How do you know that he was not just holding a knife . That would be more reasonable situation to believe in , because he was eating this diner inside a truck he has just prepared for himself minutes earlier . Holding and vaiwing a knife are just two different things . But you take it without a second thought .

Perhaps explain to us how and where exactly they 'behaved like animals'?
Some people have no sense of humour......

Most humans use thieir brain to act humanely contrary to animals who just follow their instincts .

To me performing duties , representing justice system requires proper behaviour it is not about showing simple minded , raw instincts - rounding him , laughing, talking to him and at the same time knowing that his command of English is poor .That behaviour was unnecessary .

In Polish TV, there are programs about cops on duty I have never seen cops laughing at people while doing their duties , no matter how ridicule stories they were saying .

I bet you would not be in a cheerful mood if you were put in his position .

It is hard for me to discuss if you use personal attack on me.
I didn`t have an idea that this case was linked with my profession and my professional skills. Congrats for carrying a mature discussion here.

Answering to your unpleasant retort - this case has nothing to do with the offence and the law. It is about handling the case by professional police in your country. I feel it is exaggerated and they acted like a bunch of animals laughing at the face of the guy and filming it.

Shame on UK police and you who defend such behavior.
I wish you all be ridiculed on Polish TV the same way he was.

In Poland the whole case would be handled the way like this : Polish police would ask you : do you speak Polish , sir ? If not they would contact you with a translator and follow the legal procedures .

You know expats , my opinion is that Polish police is too lenient with you here in Poland . That`s just my view.

irrational behavior.

Firstly, how rationally would you act if a police stopped you in a middle of nowhere and you wouldn`t understand a word what the cops were talking about and going to do with you ?

Secondly , moderator explained to you that he calmed down when he was told he would get be just ticketed , but your own comment sounded irrationally telling that- " English is more popular than Polish , sorry guys."

So , do you think that Poles have no right to enter English border as truck drivers because their command of English is insufficient and on the other hand English truck drivers should be allowed on the sole basis that English is more popular language and every Polish cop should be able to communicate in English with you not to put you in irrational behaviour while being caught for driving offence ? - answer me !

Travel / Warsaw is the most congested city in Europe [6]

And everybody knows ( excluding Harry or other survey carriers ) that Warsaw has been in a difficult time since last year , because the city is virtually blocked by subway`s second line beeing built and the traffic in the city is enormous , because the major city`s streets are excluded from a car traffic. .

What would one expect from some dumb cops . Just take a look at their dumb facial expression .

This video with such brilliant commentaries ( the land of potato) they mumble can only be equal to other BBC botches .

What a masterpiece operation of the best cop`s crew capturing the most vicious truck driver of all times .

A sample of usual bashing of some Polish driver, driving a truck on Polish plates, they could not resist to leave it as they would do it if it was on English plates.

Life / 3 reasons why you hate Poland. [1010]

I don't show off, act different or in an odd way. You are missing the point where other countries were much welcoming and pretty nicer to incomers. Why is it just Poland?!

That`s a lie , Polish medical universities admit foreign students without the same procedures as they admit Polish , for the prosaic reason they want to get more money in their budgets . The state doesn`t care much about your education , because you will go back to your countries and treat your own citizens on your own responsibility .

You are an Arab and that`s a fact without any doubt . It doesn`t matter what country you come from it is irrelevant . What`s more important is the fact that you just come from a different background than most Polish people come from and you should know that.

We are very homogenious country and in smaller cities there is a great chance that people have never seen black or coloured people in their entire lives . You should be prepared for some curiosity and shouldn`t be surprised by the lack of universal knowledge of English language in such places . English is spoken widely in larger cities , for farmers don`t speak in English with their neighbors . I don`t see the point why would old people have the ability of speaking different languages . In Poland students have the possibility to choose from many languages to learn during the entire course of education . It is not only English , but it is German and French too . So when you meet a person who doesn't speak English it means he/she chose other foreign language to study at school .

You possess so little knowledge about Poland that you don`t even know that for many years the universal foreign language for Polish children was the Russian language . That`s why older people don`t speak English at all . The other thing learning other languages is not very popular as we don`t have too many emigrants ( contrary to the countries you mentioned ) and Polish government institutions don`t deal with foreigners too frequently except maybe Warsaw where they have more cases especially at immigration center at Długa street in Warsaw .

Polish people are modest and even rich people don`t show off their money . You are obviously poor but your state pays for you tuitions and allowances . So , you should be modest and very grateful for that .

You hate Olsztyn people and I know why .
By coincidence I have a friend who was admitted to med faculty for foreigners and I know some details . Most of the students are Arabic . They show off their money and this situation is difficult to bear for local boys because they make in most cases as little as 1200 zl a month . Secondly you are not appreciated by Polish med students at all . You know why : because they had to score at least 90 % of extended exams from biology , chemistry and physics at it is extremely tough to get it . But you didn`t have to do it . Your story about hard exams is just untrue and we both know what I am talking about .

Poland is not different from other countries . The difference is that there are not too many Arabs living here . The other thing is that young girls like you for your government`s money, lols and that`s why you get so much attention .Your financial situation remains in a sharp contrast the Polish boys are in , because they can`t afford to take their girlfriends for a night out in the best club in Olsztyn . This is not a big city and that English Division at med faculty has become famous for treating locals especialy boys with superiority over the years . So , this unkind response you got was earnestly worked for by you and your colleagues .

You are surprised why Hipis wanted so much Polsh passport . I will answer you. I am not sure you will understand that though , maybe it will not give him much benefits as you are saying , but for some people money is not the most important thing in life there are other more important values ,

News / British senior politician compares Poland to South Africa during apartheid [129]

As for the hoolies, we don't need the BBC to know we have a problem. But the problem isn't racial violence, it is simply violence. Considering the August London events, the UK unfortunately doesn't have any know-how we could use.

Exactly ! Good post , thank you .

Krakow, June 6, 2012.

As an American-born Jew living happily and safely in Poland and working
diligently to build Jewish life in that country, I am furious at the way the BBC
has exploited me as a source. The organization used me and others to
manipulate the serious subject of anti-Semitism for its own sensationalist
agenda; in doing so, the BBC has insulted all Polish people and done a
disservice to the growing, thriving Jewish community of Poland.

I have reason to believe the BBC similarly misrepresented the black African
football players it used as sources in the same programme.

Moreover, the BBC knowingly cheated its own audience - the British people
- by concocting a false horror story about Poland. In doing so, the BBC has
spread fear, ignorance, prejudice and hatred.

He describes BBC as manipulators and cheaters !!!!!!!!

News / British senior politician compares Poland to South Africa during apartheid [129]

Britain has never paid reparations for its crimes against humanity committed during its bloodstained era of slavery and empire - the effects of which are still around today.

The British won't mention their own violent, racist past but no one should believe that they no longer think or act that way now.

Their perverse idea of making amends is to accuse others of the things that they are guilty of.

Polish people are fully aware of this infamous British history , So today`s lessons made by BBC reporters are perceived as very ridicule clearly showing how they try to sweep all their problems under the carpet by pointing out a finger on others . Thats the easiest way . I wouldn`t mind if it was a professional example of reporting instead of a simple piece of garbage made for simpletons .

Eastern Europeans

How can you comment about Poland if you don`t even know the geographical location of Poland , a home country you have been living as our guest for 17 years . You surviwed here so long , so you Harry are a living proof of our hospitality . Poland is located in the true heart r of Europe just south of Sweden . BTW , do you consider Sweden as north eastern country?

You Harry as a Jew can you say wholeheartedly that there was any racial attack on Jews in Poland during all those years while you live in out great country ?

News / Anty-Polish v column is located in White House [88]

Same flawed premise. It presumes that 30 million Poles (including babies) had to do something to protect Jews when they couldn't even protect some 3 million fellow Poles from getting killed.

Good point .

American Jews are responsible far more than any other nation for the holocaust because they didn`t do anything to help Jews in Poland although Mr Jan Karski met in America with prominent Jewish representatives during the war , he was talking to US president and many Jews informing them about the horrors of the Holocaust of Polish people of Polish and Jewish descent . There was no reaction .

Those who say in US about Polish responsibility are insane money seekers .

Monia... if you think that Poland hasn't any racism or anti semites then go for it! You'll be the one surprised. doh!!

It is not a big problem as was presented by reporters in BBC production which was made for certain propaganda against Euro in fear that it will atract too many viewers and as a result Olimpics would suffer from unexpected lack of financial gains due to lower rate of tourists interested in watching the games on islands..

If I would say (mind you, I don't - it's just an example) I don't like Poles cause they are lazy, thieves, murderers, rapists, are living on hand-outs, you would be all up in arms, wouldn't you? So how come that this doesn't go both ways? Or can't you see that it is exactly the same?

Have you ever heard that in Poland to be said about Jews on a daily basis . Why do you people dwell on this subject?. Try to find a way for reconciliation for these two nations rater than acusing us in such a polonophobic way.

I'm only stating that some of you guys (considerable amount), don't like or even hate Jews

I have been living in Poland since I was born and I can assure you that Jewish problem or anti-semitism in Poland is a minor issue in my country and hardly ever contemplated by an average Pole.

I also know that in France or GB general public have the similar attitude towards Jews as Poles have .

How can you blame Polish nation for anti-Semitism if we are no different than any other nation.

People who claim otherwise must have some problems with polonophobia .

I haven `t heard about any Jew assaulted in our country. Sometimes you can hear some hooligans shouting slogans targeted on Jews or derogatory paintings on walls, but that `s all.

Does it mean that Poles are anti-Semites .

Don `t be ridiculous.

We really live in peace with ourselves having our own problems far serious than dwelling on the subject about racial hatred against Jews. It is a minor issue here in Poland that only few people of Jewish descent are hunting for .

A poll conducted in their own editorial office ;), simple rubish :), not worth of any assessment :).

To have fair opinion about the level of anti-semitism in Poland you should read a book of renowned Polish writer Maria Dąbrowska titled " Diaries "

Maybe you have got good intentions but using Gazeta Wyborcza is not a good example , because it represents widely known phenomenon in Polish journalism of spreading anti - Polish propaganda , most of its staff is Jewish .

Maybe my name is Harry but i'm not the one your referring to. My answer was correct.

You are so funny with your bias distorted opinion about Poland which is simillar to this which is displayed by a lot of Jews with their constant nonsense claims of Polish anti- semitism .

It it was such a big issue then why didn`t Jews leave Poland for greener pastures to seek for their promissed land instead of living in Poland for over 500 years .It happened, because facts are quite different . Poland is and has been the most pro Jewish state for the centuries, thats why it was a home for millions of Jews who settled here and found houses , prosperous life and conditions on Polish soil .

If Jews do not change their wicked attitude towards Poland, here in Poland some groups will answer with the same level of hatred .

Jews should remember also that they commited murders on Polish nation with not lesser scale than vice versa eg. hunting for AK soldiers after the war , joining security forces in large numbers, which were murdering Poles who opposed the Soviet regime. Have you heard about the so-called Judeo Commune in postwar Poland. If you study Polish -Jewish relations you have to take into account the harm to the Poles the Jews have been doing during 1945 - 1958.

This sad propaganda with these German death camps called Polish has been started by American Jews as a mean aimed to gain more benefits, this time from Poland as they have already received what they could from Germany . Gross is a part of this machine with this science fiction history of Jedwabne ( it was orchestrated by Germans who were ocupants on our soil and who bribed some criminals of Polish nationality to commit this mass murder ) .

Who claims different story I can call him a liar . Polish Institute of Crimes against Polish Nation is a valuable body to investigate such cases and they revealed facts that it was not an act of Polish mob , but an act of few common criminals who did that just for some promissed benefits , maybe just as an act to save their own lifes .

So Jews should rethink their policy otherwise it will go on like in Code of Hammurabi .

Could you just stop that histerical nonsense about Poles exterminating Jews . Few Jews were murdered so what ????, it also happened in France and GB so what????, common crime is not an exterminantion.

This 'black' guy happened to be an ex England footballer who has played the game in all levels for clubs like England, Arsenal, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur. This 'black' guy obviously knows what he is talking about having suffered from racial abuse in his past.

And this black guy has never been in Poland . Maybe he should have scrutinised Terry for his racial statments instead for talking about Poles whom he doesn`t know at all . I really think that British don`t really pay attention to that pile of nonsense what this deluded former player says .

Unlike the one-sided polish history lesson that you got taught we in the west we have a more broader approach to History.

Yeah , the Jewish truth and all the truth contained in some histerical hipocritical books . Maybe he should have included USA Jews themselves as part of the holocaust machine who did not do anything to save the Jews from datch camps but now from a sense of self guilt they blame others for their idifference . How would you comment that ?
