Mail, Express and the Sun
So just because a newspaper has a center-right or conservative point of view you won't read it? That's very narrow minded. I identify as a conservative but that doesn't mean I won't read something by MSNBC, NYT, Latimes (which earlier this morning I read an article about California's decriminalization of knowingly infecting someone with HIV and knowingly donating blood despite being HIV+), etc. if it's something I'm interested in. It's better to get both sides of the story so you can understand two points of view rather than just the one you identify with. You'd be surprised - you might actually understand why a person says certain things and say to yourself 'Well I never thought of it like that before - makes sense'
It's not just UK media that's siding with PL government in this regard - US media as well.
The amount of people in UK who detest Poles are rather small. Yes you're right though though - the Brits weren't too happy with a flood of Poles in 2004, 2005, etc. I wouldn't be either if I was a British dude living in London, Manchester, etc. especially since many of the Poles that came esp at first were from the lower classes and many predisposed to crime, hooliganism, etc.The attitude has since changed dramatically. The Brits generally view Poles in a positive light now because they work hard, pay taxes, and generally don't cause problems. When's the last time a Pole living in the UK drove a van into a crowd, or cut off a British soldier's head, or blew people up, or stabbed people in front of government buildings? Not to mention the sharia courts and patrols, living off benefits with their 5 kids, and marching with 'UK go to hell signs.' When have Poles ever paraded with such signs in the UK? Thanks to these radicals, the Brits have seen Poles in a far more positive light and see these radicals as the threat now, not us.
Brexit was the will of the British citizens who voted. Cry about it all you want but clearly the people who came out to vote chose leave - and I don't blame them. Economically and politically, yes there will be short term consequences. However in the long term they won't be cucked by the Gerries and Brussels anymore. They will begin to reap the benefits after 5-10 years of formally departing - assuming of course they actually go through with it and don't keep lagging it or the decision is reversed. The main reason why it passed is that people were sick of the EU passing laws to which the British and their politicians didn't agree to. The majority of laws that passed from year to year weren't ones that local legislature passed but rather laws and regulations the EU forced on them which they had to abide by. Not to mention all the people that they were forced to take in, many of whom preferred the benefits to working as the welfare would far exceed any wage they were use to back in their home country - sadly Poles included.
Besides, we're not talking about Brexit, we're talking about Poland asking for reparations for the crimes they committed against us in WW2. Germany paid reparations to Israeli, Jewish people (a lot of these claims were proven to be fraudulent), Greece, Yugoslavia, Netherlands (received land), etc. Soviet Union too received Kaliningrad as approved by the Big 3. Well,. we suffered way more deaths than Greece did in WW2 so we want ours and we have the right to demand this. You think the great-grandparents, great uncles and aunts, etc including my own, who's homes were shelled, or lost their families, or were themselves killed, don't want reparations for themselves or their families? If you have Polish family that lived during this time period ask them if they'd want reparations or not. I'm willing to bet they'd say yes.
