no poles who have just come here and never paid tax are a burden, brits earning low wages have at least paid tax their whole lives.
Can't you see any balance between duration of tax payments and duration of access to the what the tax pays for.
They haven't been paying tax here all their lives, but neither have they been reaping the benefits all their lives.
very interesting comments to this article
There are more positive than negative comments about Poles on there. The negative comments seemed to focus more on the Britsh governament than on the actual Polish migrant workers themselves, unlike a certain troll we find round here.
If you criticise the government that makes the decisions, then you don't look nearly as stupid as someone who picks on a group by their nationality, religion, skin-colour and so on. Such hatred for people on such a flimsy basis only leads me to suspect noimmigration is not just polonophobic, not just xenophobic, not just racist, but also anti-human.
Noimmigration: have some respect for Homo sapiens sapiens. It was humankind that provided you and your kind with a pond within which to constitute the lower forms of life.
