Polish guy got nervous, who wouldn't? Camera on your face, you feel like you're screwed.
Mick , I am glad you noticed that and described the situation in a reasonable way not seeing it as one dimensional situation.
It`s good that you have mentioned that too.
On the top of this I sense you feel like British people look down on Polish people. Have you had a bad experience in the past?
I am the most law abiding person on earth. I was maybe stopped 3-4 times in my entire life and only for speeding up and the policemen were always very polite to me I never questioned their decisions I always agreed with them I showed my professional card , we smiled to each other and I drove away with wishes of a pleasant journey. I respect and appreciate them and their work.
Looking down on people requires some comment from me.
That`s the reason the program shouldn`t be aired on TV.
I can`t understand that mocking on other nations is acceptable in Britain in the media.
Probably it`s because you come from different cultural circles where people can be mocked around just to make others laugh.
Laughing is good but it all depends on the situation . You can laugh at each other, whatever you like, but if you try to laugh at other nation it is unacceptable for one important reason - this causes forming stereotypes of the whole nation which is unfair and chauvinistic.
The standards of BBC as a national TV station should be an example of fairness and high standards. My opinion has been different for some time but since I have found out about the recent defamatory program about Poland my opinion has drastically changed and now I view it as some kind of a trash TV station looking for some cheap audience .
Look at Sasha Cohen and his roles in which he mocks other nations. My advice for him would be - go ahead and mock your Jewish compatriots, your family and your mother and so on.
He does something very disturbing, he provokes people to racists acts . Such morons as him should be laid off and stay jobless for their entire life.
Poland represents other standards these days. If someone tries to mock other nation then he loses his job, no excuses. Vide - the ESKA Rock hosts of morning talk show carried by two obnoxious people whose sense of humor was funny only for them. Thanks that the directors fired them finally.
Poles don`t look down on other nations and I am appalled by the magnitude of bashing Poles in Britain. This TV cop show is just a small example off adding to such stereotypes.
I am sorry that some of you can`t see it.
Do you think we don`t have stereotypes about British people here in Poland ? We do .
They are just taken straight from Charles Dickens novels and do you think they are flattering; no they are not , they are way far from that.
But because of that do we look down on you British people? No.
You could notice it during Euro 2012 where Polish people welcomed all of you with open arms, showing great hospitality and friendliness. Was it because you are perfect, of course not, but because we are just different from you and have far better values.
