Polish baby boom, but not in Poland

Polish women are born abroad, says "Gazeta Wyborcza". Nearly 21 thousand. Polish children were born last year in England and Wales. This is an average of up to 57 babies a day.

In 2010, the Poles gave the world many children from all minority groups in Britain (19.7 thous.), Followed by Pakistani occupying the first place so far.

The Polish are leaving mostly young. But age is not the only factor determining the number of births in the Polish community. What is important is the standard of living - higher than in Poland and the second highest in Europe.

In the UK, now living about 850 thousand. Poles. In 2014, the country will have about 200 thousand. Polish children.

"GW" in the article "Baby boom ..." shows the British social conditions conducive to increasing population.

Well if the Polish embassy in London says 850 thousand Poles now reside in the UK it's easy to understand.

Right, because apparently you have your own census organization, will that be part of your economic analysis department and pay-check verifying company?

what is valid these days?

How many Poles would you estimate in the UK?

I'd prefer to look at official figures rather than use your method of making it up as you go along, aka useless guesswork.

I was born in England too but that was more down to Churchill and Attlee.

Wroclaw Boy could be right with his figures because there's still a lot of people around from the initial post war generation and their children, me being one of them, so add those to the 2004 onwards immigrants then the number is easily over a million.

I'd also be curious as to how many are part-timers like seasonal workers, doctors that fly in and out, etc.

OK and which official figure would that be? there are a few. I'll ask again how many Poles in the UK?

Ever placed a bet weg? or is there not enough official data?

They don't need to. Inland Revenue will have most updated information - as all Poles would either work or claim some sort of benefits (hoping that the first is more prevalent...). There would be some grey area, but this would be short term workers who can't be bothered to sort out their paperwork, I wouldn't think it's a big number.

Might have something to do with Free NHS, Child Benefit and Child Tax Credits.

Just a guess :)

Indeed. Of course the health system is free here to.

Seen as the vast majority of the 100 Billion £ NHS Budget is paid for by British people, working in Britain, using British resources and Infrastructure -

For the Polish Nation in Exile, it basically is free.

Tax payers contributing to the British economy.

The vast majority will be used by the elderly, who are British

What little tax they contribute, they take STRAIGHT back in Tax Credits, Child Benefit, Council housing.

Are they giving away council houses somehwere?

Is it just Polish workers who claim tax credits and receive child benefit or are the Indian, Chinese, Irish, French, British etc etc not entitled to them?

As far as im concerned the only people who should have financial aid for low-income are BRITISH-BORN people. This is the United Kingdom after all.

And as far as I'm concerned the only people who should get assistance are those who have contributed to the system regardless of where they have come from.

People should have to live and work in a country for a minimum 5 years in order to qualify for any state handouts...end of!

BRITISH-BORN people

That's a bit extreme - what about people who happened to be born outside Britain but have the citizenship? Would you exclude them?

Oh no. In a few years they'll be on PF telling me they're 100% pure Polish and how dare I have an opinion about their motherland!

You know people have eyes. Check out the car washes and such like.

Wow thats a lot of babies and a lot of trouble in the pipeline with International divorce and child abduction.

I wonder why so many of them make a Polish passport a first stop. Surely it would be more sensible to get a UK passport for these children for the benefits it gives them and pick up a Polish one later in the unlikely event thay might need one.
