Just like on PF, Poles are seen as an easy target yet again.
I'm surprised that no-one has noticed what is the real agenda here.
If, for example, they had written "6 babies born to Somalian women in the UK every day" or "9 babies born to Trinidadian women in the UK every day", it wouldn't have been newsworthy. But if they had written "170 babies born to Afro-Caribbean women in the UK every day" or "275 babies born to Somalian women in the UK every day", and implied that this was a bad thing, you would have been deafened by the screams of "rascism" (sic
) from the usual suspects.
I do not know the exact figures, but I wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that the figures for the aforementioned groups are indeed significantly higher than the figures for Polish births. So, yet again, it's OK to demonise Poles for the problems caused by immigration, simply because the media dare not criticise Blacks or Asians. Yet the reality is that Poles only represent a small part of the total number of immigrants.
We're not even a particularly visible minority. Few British people can't really tell who is Polish just by looking at them (unlike us, lol) - give a British person some earplugs, dump them in the Trafford Centre, and see how many Poles they can spot. OK, when you can hear the so-called "east European" accent, and you see a bleached-blonde girl in market clothes (or a shaven-headed guy with a backpack and camo pants) standing outside a Polish shop or venue, then you would probably right. But elsewhere? When they are in isolation and/or mixed with other white people; especially if they aren't dressed in that "Polish" way? Most would find it difficult to spot us.
The media hates Poles because they know they can get away with it. If Giles Coren had written what he wrote about about Poles, but had written it about "Pakis" instead, he would have been jailed.
Hardly newsworthy, it is pretty much common knowledge around here that the surest way to get a Polish woman pregnant is to put her on a Ryanair heading for Blightey.
I'm clearly flying with the wrong airlines. I never get any when I fly with Qatar Airways lol :D
