Thanks for your reply,

I will be going to Poland in the summer and I hope I won't be stereotyped as a loud-mouth Scot, but seen as a lady!

It's just an opinion, Scots and Brits are alike, they share the same language so they can communicate and understand eachother better. What do Poles and Scots have in common?

Being oppressed and exploited by larger and more powerful neighbours, we like a drink or several ;) and our football teams always flatter to deceive.

.
that's such a myth, all the money in Britain is in the hands of Scots and has been for many years. Just my opinion, but I don't buy into all that wildly inaccurate 'Braveheart' tosh, it was all just an invention.

Believe what you want. Being half Scottish I think I have a better understanding of Scottish history than most people outside Scotland. Whilst the Braveheart film was very much Hollywood script it was based around historical events, even though they were inaccurately portrayed.

you could say that.....just a bit. That Gibson should have been done for inciting racial hatred. Mind you he looked good in a kilt.

and having a parent from a certain country doesnt give you some fantastic insight into the history and politics of that country, it just makes you biased.

Better question would be "what do they have not in common?"

No, every Scot bears a silent loathing hatred that goes back a thousand years. Even making eye contact with a Scot will be enough to instil a blind rage in him that will ignite a Celto-Slavic War that will ravage all of Europe, so deep is the dislike of Poles by the Scots.

One of the major figures in Scottish history, Bonnie Prince Charlie, was great grandson of Jan Sobieski 3rd.

There were also around 30,000 Scots living in Poland in 17th century.

That's an understatement. The battle of Stirling (Brig) was totally misrepresented and the whole thing about the sh@gging the princess!!!

BLAH BLAH.... I was born in Simpson Memorial, Edinburgh.
Scotland invaded England far more times than the other way round.
If you like the poor wee victim role,thats fine,but keep that to your Polish side :)

OP, you will be fine. Poles in general still believe all the celtic bollox about oppression and all that guff, they love us :)
Try telling them how many Scotsmen were Kings of England and it blows their minds :)

PS, pahh to Wallace, about time *they* made a decent film about The Bruce,now there was an interesting story of greedy opportunist turned absolute heroic patriot,with still the trace of shady barstewerd.....

I realize this is a bit late for a response, but I happen to be a Polish/ Scottish- American, married to a Polish national. So obviously there must be some attraction. I know many Polish as moving to England and Scotland currently. I personally can tell you that at the Uni. Wroclaw many students are moving to Scotland once finished- money plays a big part, but there is a camaraderie in both cultures.

I'm Polish and I had a Scottish boyfriend, he was lovely :) I don't like the chavs, obviously, but as long as you're a nice person, the Poles will love you ;)

I'm a Scotsman, met my now polish wife in Scotland, we lived together there, got married in Poland last year and moved to Warsaw this year, we met at a wedding of a Scottish guy & a polish woman, and that is a regular thing these days in Scotland and England..

Scots, same as Slavs, are in fact Sarmats (previous and older universal ethnic name of native Europeans). So, there is some general sympathy between Slavs- particularly Poles and, Scots. People feel each other

Not really, although there is a limited shared history.

Yet you seem to be very upset by the idea of Silesian autonomy. Goofy, your politics are - like your age - immature ;)

Somewhere in Warsaw Old Town, there is a plaque about a Scot who became mayor of Warsaw in 16th (?) century. I will have a look at it when I go to my pub - it's on the way :)
