Is it gonna be disastrous for Poland's situation?
For those who can read Polish, there is nice satirical article by S. Mizerski, here:
I'll try to summarize:
He starts with the dooming prediction that after May the 1st there will be nobody left to finish the projects that were born in such difficulties: the second subway line in Warsaw, the stadiums for the Euro 2012 and the North Bridge - not to mention missing highways.
He then says:Although the latter are to be build by the Chinese, but seeing what happens, they may also decide to flee. Pessimists anticipate that the only specialists to remain in the country will be the experts in memorials and manufacturers of crosses, candles and torches; that is, the experts in the areas neglected by the West, but which in Poland experience a new Renaissance, and even more - the Middle Ages.
Then he states that: Opening up of the German market could be a chance for Poles working in the Netherlands.
and then explains the Dutch grievances about Poles: they drink, park cars badly, party all night and they do not even speak Dutch.
But: We must agree that the accusation of the lack of Dutch language skills is particularly biased, because if our countrymen learned the basics of the language then they would began demanding better wages from their Dutch hosts, and consequently the misunderstandings between the two sides would only intensify.
(...)Some concerns are being raised that by leaving the Netherlands, our compatriots will force the Dutch to do all that murderous work for them, and consequently this would further worsen the current opinion about the Poles: adding the epithet of the loafer to the existing ones of the drunkard and the party animal ignoramus.
(...)There are suggestions that Poland should retaliate by deciding to expel all unemployed Poles - at least those who drink, party all time, badly park and do not even know any Dutch. The effects of such a step could be devastating for the Netherlands.
