UK, Ireland / Polish Festivals/Exhibitions/Events in UK [91]

The term East/Eastern European slag off Polish people and shows pure ignorance.
Everybody knows that these ******* with a thick accent predominantly came from Poland ( 90 % ), some are from Lithuania and Slovakia, but they still use such names in media and popularise in general.

UK, Ireland / Poles do a U turn: England to Poland and then back to England again. [23]

I dont know why but I have a feeling they are just afraid to go back to Poland
Laugh of the neighbours/friends/family etc. they are loosers or feel of shame could be a main factor not to do so.
Thats my idea why they can be so desperate to be there even in so miserable conditions.

UK, Ireland / Britain... What the Poles did for us. [444]

osio

I'm not talking about what the article said about Poles leaving Britain - I'm talking about how that article is just one of many going on and on about a coming recession. The more they all talk it up, the more likely it will be to happen.

what about Bronislaw Malinowski? british culture?, british education?, british science?

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malinowski
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gumplowicz

Is he was a Jew, a Pole or an Austrian?
His family supported Polish January uprising. He was rejected to get Ph.D degree in Jagiellonian University, so he went to Graz Austria. Who he was? hmm?

Language / "Poles" or "Polish people" - which is better to use? [189]

I am reading a book published in 1948, written in English by Stanislaw Mikolajczyk, Prime Minister of the Polish goverment in exile during World War II( second important persona after Sikorski ). Every time when he did mention about Polish people he was using the term "Poles". So when Polish exile elite had to use that term it looks like a proper one

Life / I'm British in Poland and I think that it's time to go back to the UK! [240]

In my opinion twenty years was too short an intermission for the new ideas to really sink in

belive me WASN'T and not a new ideas cos they were already here among polish aristocracy and bourgeois class and after 123 years of three occupants we recovered much faster than after 50 of commies

noimmigration:
They hate their own country so they come here in swarms

telefonitka dont even bother to respond him. His is an orange scum, that he really is

I would say that Polish bureaucracy resembles the Eastern models rather than the Western ones.

yes, now and because of last 50 years of commie and so on
You can not say that about period of 1918-1939 when they were no any influences of any oriental models. Polish constitution from 1921 was based on the best achievments of western philosophies and bureaucracy followed that way as well

any bureaucracy serves primarily itself, but in Poland people have been trodden upon so long (since the Partitions) that it has become part of the culture.

Yes any bureaucracy primarily serve itself and have tendency to modification to achieve its own goals rather, that to what for they have been originally created but I wouldn't go to far with deep downed explanation to effects of partitions. Rather than that I would focus on side effect of strong communism's influence. Digging down to partitions can not be answer because polish bureaucracy during 1918 -1939 Polish Republic had completely different attitude than present one.

Again compare imperial British bureaucracy to polish one have no sens to me, they had different purposes and scale.
During partitions we had three completely different imposed models of bureaucracies, that short time during Second Polish Republic they had achieved a lot, merged all of these and created solid one - very hard POLISH achievement, communistic one was NOT POLISH ONE and the last one - banana one merely is not so different from commies when compare their attitudes

British bureaucratic culture is based on the assumption that legal requirements should be kept to an essential minimum and officials are meant to serve the citizen.

theory

In Poland it's quite the opposite.

assumption based on theory

The greatest influence on the present-day Polish bureaucratic environment were the oppressive, Byzantine bureaucracies of the three occupants Prussia, Austria (see Kafka's 'The Trial') and especially Russia in the 19 c.

theoryEverybody can make similar or completely opposite theories about above problem.

Ps where did you get that theory from? I mean about Byzantine influence?
Feliks Koneczny once wrote some similar theories
What about Mongol influence on Russia and communism's bureaucracy ? that theory could cover an explanation of crappy office behavior in Poland very nicely as well.

Sorry I am after night out so my brain doesn't work properly in English :)
