UK, Ireland / Overweight gay Polish gender fluid crossdresser in Big Brother house [12]

... good for him, I guess?

Well, yes, sort of.

I'm glad that he (Tomasz Wania) had an alternative in coming to the UK, but don't think that any country in this day and age, especially one in the EU, should have put any of its citizens in such a dilemma.

Tomasz probably had other reasons for leaving Poland, but I don't think he feel able to be himself there.

He's camper than a row of pink tents, is quite an unpleasant person and his snoring is like a chainsaw through the skull, but the sad thing is that he had to leave Poland because of the homophobic abuse he suffered.

No one deserves having to leave their home country because of something like that.

UK, Ireland / Non EU parent of Polish child [12]

First of all thank you for replying in a good way.
Still waiting for the decision.

Seems like a drive-by posting to me.

UK, Ireland / How might Britain`s withdrawal from EU affect Poles there and here? [474]

It might interest people to know that judgement in the Brexit case at the High Court is due next week.

The problem with court cases and those unhappy with the result trying to get it overturned is that it just reinforces what many think about politicians ie. they are only interested in democracy when they get the answer that they want.

The referendum asked a straightforward 'Remain' / 'Leave' question and more chose one than the other. That's it! There should not be any need for court cases. More people voted in the referendum than in the 2016 general election, so people were more engaged than normal. If the result is somehow overturned, it will not be received well.

Freedom of movement impacted the poor Brits the most. That's why they voted to leave. The poor have spoken.

UK, Ireland / Polish man beaten to death in London! [99]

Probably with very good reason

From what has been reported so far, some of those involved were very young - one as young as 13 - so I would imagine that if the motive was nationality, then they would have done it regardless of the referendum result.

Given the population of England 17 million is possible that this is what they did want.

England had the highest number of voters (34 million I think), then Scotland, then Wales and then Northern Ireland. England and Wales voted to leave and Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to stay BUT the UK as a whole voted to leave and that is what counts, however much some people don't like that fact.

Obama visiting Britain and using scare tactics might have been the final coffin nail :0

The more people such as Obama endorsed 'Remain' the more it annoyed people that's true. Jean-Claude Juncker shoving his oar in really didn't help either.

I don't doubt that some people voted to shut the gates and are annoyed that they didn't shut immediately, but not 17+ million.

The remainers are just annoyed that they didn't win and Brexit being a success just doesn't fit in with the narrative that it cannot be a success at any cost...even if that means tenuous links to events such as the murder of this poor man.

My thoughts are it's a dangerous place compared to Poland and if one decides to live there they should remain weary.

I think you mean 'wary' but it can get weary living here, I agree.

English are responsible for that atmosphere of hatred on Poles and everything Slavic in Britain.

The problem is with sweeping generalisations is that they are just that, sweeping generalisations.

I am English and voted 'leave' but there is no hatred on my part for the Polish or for Europe. It was the EU that I was voting against.

Total freedom of movement is based on pretty flawed logic, but that didn't cause the murder of this man in the same way that a bunch of feral rats setting fire to and looting shops in London in 2011 wasn't caused by it either.

David Cameron coined the phrase 'Broken Britain' at one stage of his career in politics, but I'm not sure he blamed the EU for the country's problems. The problems with society today that can result in such violence goes way deeper than the EU or xenophobia and or racism. It would be easier to deal with if it were.

UK, Ireland / Polish man beaten to death in London! [99]

The poor man was kicked to death by violent, out of control teens who probably weren't even old enough to vote in the referendum.

I know that the mainstream media want to link it to Brexit and its supporters, but I don't think it's that simplistic.

I voted 'leave' so am I meant to be pleased that this happened or just feel responsible?

I feel neither by the way.

UK, Ireland / London's POSK smeared with anti-Polish grafitti [150]

Very unfortunate. Just shows you that much of the Exit campaign was based on xenophobia and lies.

I voted 'leave' last week and would vote 'leave' again without question, but this attack is unacceptable.

UK, Ireland / How might Britain`s withdrawal from EU affect Poles there and here? [474]

In your racist view of the world, maybe.It's not over yet.

It's not over yet? What is that mean to mean?

The referendum has happened and it's now the job of the government to act on the result as they agreed to do when it was called. All this crap about wanting another one, London wanting to remain part of the EU and all that is all just sour grapes.

'Remain' lost and that is it!

I am voting for Brexit.

Even if Britain votes to stay, the EU has to get its act together and get rid of flawed 'cornerstones' like freedom of movement or go back to falling apart.

Freedom of movement was never going to work when the countries involved are all so different in terms of economies, welfare systems and so on.

UK, Ireland / Should an English website in UK have Polish translations? [12]

Option 1) Translate it for every EU country on none at all.

Option 2) Have the manners / commonsense to learn the language of the country you are going to live in / spend a fair amount of time in.

UK, Ireland / British guy refused work because of Polish workers [38]

Is that annual kick a Pole routine in The Fascism Daily?

So a direct quote from a man saying he has been discriminated against on account of his nationality is just part of the "annual kick a Pole routine in The Fascism Daily"?

UK, Ireland / Daniel Pelka murder: Polish mother and stepfather face life sentences [96]

It would need to be determined why they failed at their job and it's certainly plausible in this day and age that political correctness may have had something to do with it.

Social workers may have had language barriers and all kinds of 'cultural differences' as being the reasons why more was not done.

UK, Ireland / Why English do not like Polish? [417]

The question should be, "Why English do not like anybody but themselves ?"It's not just the Poles that they look down upon, it's the whole world they look down upon.Their silver spoon has tarnished since they fell from being the world power.I think it is a pseudo culture thing that they are hanging onto not being able to accept that.

Do you know any English people?

Poles in the UK are hard working and tend to be polite and friendly. They have a work ethic that disappeared from the UK many years ago. The British are jealous of the Poles. I must however say I am biased, I am an Israel Jew of Polish heritage. I am currently living in the UK. I employ Poles and I would never employ an English person so I guess I am also prejeudiced and narrow minded!

I think you'll find that's illegal.

Also, you spelt 'prejudiced' incorrectly.

Off-Topic / Eurovision - Today I will be ashamed to be Polish [86]

On the positive side, pretty girls with nice voices. On the negative, the lyrics and cheesy outfits. Typical Eurovision fare, I guess.

By Jove! The woman with the butter churn had a cracking pair ;) :D

Language / Should I learn Polish or she learn English? [59]

I wonder how this girl was getting by without learning English ?

She should learn more English as it will just make her life easier here, but he should learn some Polish too.

Just be careful that she doesn't pick up too much slang as it's surprising how many rude words foreigners use without realising it :)
