I have concerns over the British immigration policy so I wrote to my MP.

It is often suggested on here that anyone who has concerns over the current lack of any decent immigration policy should write to their MP.

So I just have.

I hope that those who will have read any of my previous posts would know that I'm not a mud slinging, axe grinding xenophobe. I'm just an average bloke.

I'll happily PM a copy of the letter to anyone who is interested in its content.

I see you have decided to take my advice. Good for you. PM a copy here Mr. H THX.
Just curies what was said, and hope they will at least have decency to respond to your correspondence.

In my experience, MPs can be quite good at responding to letters. The effect on government is a totally different matter. In fact, many years ago, Crnogorac's pal, Sir Lord Archduke David Owen GNVQ helped trace my father's lost post office savings book and get it returned.

It’s a common trait to all governments no matter where you live.

I'm sure a reply will be forthcoming, however, I agree that not much will happen as a result.

Having said that, my MP has a wafer thin majority of less than 1,000. Therefore, taking no notice at all of such letters won't do much for their chances of re-election next time around.

Thanks for everyone's interest.

What can realistically be done? The Poles have flocked in their droves as they are entitled to do so. Do u really think they care about decency when bread has to be put on the table? I echo the above sentiments, mass immigration is crippling certain parts of our economy but that was a risk of signing the EU Treaty.

Probably nothing, however, we either roll over and die or lobby the powers that be and say "enough!"

The British Government must be able to introduce legislation to make things fairer. It would be something if they just held their hands up and admitted that they've coc*ed up.

I wish this forum had an MP to write to. I'd complain about all the English that have invaded this forum, stealing our posting space, being rude and generally doing what the Poms do best - whinge.

We've got lots of you guys in Australia and Ive worked with heaps of them - they were generally lazy and inept at the quite simple manual tasks they were given. Poms are accepted though in Australia. I wonder if anyone would notice the Poles in the UK if they had English accents? Probably not.

Remember - 1940's England. Lots of Poles then - fighting for you - keeping your children safe - committed to helping you. Perhaps if the debt had been repaid in kind there wouldn't be this influx for obvious reasons.

Read my previous posts, Ozi Dan.

I'm not trying to whinge as you put it, in fact I'm trying to be constructive.

The British government even has the audacity to belittle the importance of referendums so I don't have much hope. Tony Blair, the great new face of Labour 11-12 years ago has a lot to account for. Never have I known anyone swing to the opposite end of the political spectrum like him. Michael Portillo is a changed man but even he didn't yank the pendulum so mightily.

MP's, Master of Puppets? LOL

ead my previous posts, Ozi Dan.

I have. I hope you gave your MP some literature too on the Polish contribution to your country, all of which is still in living memory. Good luck to you - I hope you get what you're after.

Mister H is a level-headed guy Ozi Dan, I'm sure u realise that as u imply above
OP Mister H 10 | 759

Thanks Seanus and Ozi Dan

I don't expect to change the world with one letter, but they do say that the pen is mightier than the sword.

I'm not trying to minimise peoples' contributions at all, I just like to see fair play.

Thanks, Mr. Aitch. You made some interesting points that I wouldn't have thought of.

I think a lot of people don't even notice stuff in the news, especially if it's not deemed to be very interesting (today would be a good day to bury bad news), or if it just doesn't seem to affect them. This isn't helped by the fact that news programmes seem to be mostly speculation rather than actual reporting.

Thanks Osiol (and others) for reading it and taking the time to comment.

I made a few tiny changes and corrected a couple of grammar howlers, but will post it tomorrow.

In actual fact, very few Poles died in active service in World War 2. A few died from 'friendly fire' as the Russians had to fight their way westwards through Warsaw towards Berlin but the truth is, most died from natural causes in the labour camps from dysentery and other common diseases.

Bloody foreigners going to England, taking the jobs they don't want to do, upping the national I.Q., importing fit women, supporting the economy, bring cultural diversity and tolerance and then complaining on a Polish forum that the English don't want them.

This is in NO WAY a new complaint for the English,
I am certainly not speaking about all English people, most are very good people, but the empty vessels make the most noise.

I'm trying to be constructive.

I do not see anything remotely constructive about any of your comments on this thread?
Why didn't you post your letter?
what response did you expect to get out of posting on a POLISH FORUM about your supposed letter?
About your decent immigration policy, would you choose to take only qualified Poles for specific job vacancies? I am not an expert on cleaning toilets, working in factories or babysitting but I did not realise it needed a masters?

We do not live in a fascist regime people have the right to travel. England is an Island in many senses.
Do what the americans do for mexico, build a wall. Or even better cop on.
Only the very safe can talk about right and wrong

I live in Poland, but there are none here, they have all gone to England in an attempt to sink it.
Are there many English on this site that are members of the national front?

You again (audible groan)!? You're like that Neville Nobody know it all kid in school who piped in to every conversation with an obscure tid bit of knowledge that no one really cared about or wanted to know. Bloody Pomgolian.

The Aussie diggers did just fine without any help from the Poms thank you very much - we actually lost heaps of good soldiers due to British incompetence (again) resulting in the fall of Singapore.

Don't call my country grubby and dusty. Just because you frantically wiki'd Australia and came up with Ayers Rock doesn't mean it's so.

they have all gone to England in an attempt to sink it.

Is it a case of the sins of the father being visited upon the son?

Now that's just silly Issy. Just between you and me, we both know it was the Poms that invaded Australia (*whispers loudly* Australia wasnt actually a nation til 1901).

Ha ha! Scathing!! I'm picturing a pasty faced Pom with a Spandau Ballet t shirt on waving a fist at the computer screen and the other arthritic hand feebly clutching a glass of warm beer with tobacco dregs. Did I strike a nerve Issy?

You'll keep mate.

HHHmmm, if weather tanned Scots /Irishman far to young and hetrosexual to like spandau ballet who doesnt drink beer and doesnt smoke indoors is close to your description...ouch,dat hurts blue....

(*whispers loudly* Australia wasnt actually a nation til 1901).

No sh*t,you dont say,wow...so the ethnic cleansing of the aborigionals and the forced seperation of children from parents happened for 70 odd years under an indipendant Aussie government did it? Ok,youve got the moral high ground back and no mistake.....
