The Millband's are of Polish - Jewish stock.

What's changed. The Right wing Tory goverment brought ship loads of Carribean here in the late fifties for the very purpose of undercutting the pay of London bus drivers and other services. Each of these individual Caribean people have multiplied in massive amounts. There was no justification for this at the time, as it would have been easier to have given the British staff a fair wage. It proves that these filthy political game is all about dogma and ideology

of undercutting the pay of London bus drivers and other services.

That or they couldn't recruit people for those jobs; not unlike the post-2004 Polish deluge. Nobody was stopping the original population from doing those jobs and some of the largest or highest density Polish populations, Slough, Boston, etc, are in areas with high unemployment.

According to the statistics of the Literary Association of the Friends of Poland, the first Polish refugees to Britain numbered just over 460 in 1851 and over 200 left the country. At that time the general number of Polish refugees numbered about 800 people. The refugees from Turkey came to different English ports: Liverpool, Leeds and Southampton. Many of them decided to emigrate to US.

More came over before WW2 especially engineers to help defend Poland. Many settled in Southampton. When the recent wave of Polish came, many chose Southampton as their home. It is estimated that they make up 10 per cent of the community. They live all over my City but recently Shirley has the biggest population mainly due to it having the cheapest housing. St Mary's and Portswood also has a big population.

Southampton has a large healthy polish community, their are Polish communities across the south coast. The locals are very receptive and inclusive of Polish communities. The only barrier between the English and Polish is the language barrier for some polish individuals in the UK. Integration is key in the UK and the best thing to do is to learn English. If anyone is considering moving to the south coast and is looking to learn English fluently I would recommend -
