I remember a story from my 15-year old student from a few years back. He told me that a couple of Italian shopkeepers refused to speak to him in English. They persisted in speaking Italian and it drove him nuts as his English was top drawer.
Huh? 'refused' presupposes that they could speak English. Was this in Italy? Britain?
(I've never been, but from what I hear English doesn't get you very far in most of Italy, French goes a lot further).
As for most Anti-Polish country in Europe, I would nominate Belarus.
