the British working community in Poland,
Before the Recession in the UK,a Pole going to work abroad was always an immigrant
no matter he/she is a European .
Before the recession in the UK, a British going to work in Poland was an expat
no matter he/she is familiar with Polish language or culture.
It seems that things have changed and British companies are not sending loads of executives because they can find excellent managers or local top executives in Poland and save money.
So in my opinion the British communities in Poland are mostly composed with British relocating to Poland for love or relationships reasons and they tend to immerse and melt in Polish society without getting too much together like in the old days of the Honk Kong Gentlemen club or during the days of the Crown Colonial Empire .
