I'm pretty sure he will forget what nationality you are and ask you the same question again in next days, as he has already done that in the past ;)

By the way, what do you think about Polish people who attend colleges and universities in the UK?

lol
I live near a town beginning with A that has a big library.....
But I would like to return to my urban slum to be honest - the provincial mindset is......hmm..a lot to deal with sometimes.

Polish Hair Saloon

Well, I for one would love to visit this Polish 'hair saloon' someday. Are there any Polish hair salons in your country?

PS. Wales is beautiful and i live in a lovely part.

Which part is that exactly? Have you pitched a tent in National Trust territory?

Erm no problem.. people from all over the world come to study at our universities..

My beef is with the people who come here "for a better life" at the detriment of the British tax payer.

No way mate! I thought they are leeches who take places, which are meant to educate native British people! Those awful Poles!!!

There's plenty of places for people who want to study..

We need LESS people going to university in the UK and taking up trade training. We also have the Open University.

I did my degree though the OU when i was in the forces, paid as i went, and now i'm debt free.

That's everywhere. But I believe that the amount of places on universities are limited in the UK, so if a Polish person study then some clever British kid don't...

Another thing is that if you noticed a shortage in trade trained specialists then it means that Poles are needed to fill the gap, aren't they? Inconsistency from your side again ;)

I did my degree though the OU

What kind of degree did you obtain there?

Poles were never needed. Contrary to popular belief on this forum - before 2004 the UK was doing relatively well economically.
Our potatoes were being picked, our warehouses were manned and our toilets were clean ;)

I'd hazard a guess that there are more EU immigrants here doing mundane tasks (factories, fruit picking) that anyone can do.. than "skilled trade" work.

I have heard the nurses were needed. Also the skilled building related trades: plumbers, tiler, electricans...

But what has necessity got to do with the price of bread?
The EU is one big country now. There was always bound to be change. You can move to a better part of the big EU country. I think it's fantastic:P

The worst thing about the UK is all the chavs that live there. All the small-minded xenophobic idiots. I'm suprised anyone goes there at all...

Unlikely as they were getting rid of nurses and employing more managers. Those that entered the "nursing profession" mostly were doing jobs the UK nurses felt were beneath them. Use your imagination. Electricians for sure would not be employable without certification as Polish standards are considerably different to the UK's. Can't comment on plumbers although having stayed in a Polish house where the toilets flushed with hot water , possibly standards differ with this profession also :-)

IMO immigration was used to drive wages down in the UK which it has succeeded in doing which can be gauged by youth unemployment. Where agency jobs were filled by our younger generations, they are now filled by Poles in their mid thirties. I know thats generalising but I believe it is about right.

Our potatoes were being picked

Now I was doing this aged 12, many years ago. Kind of confirms my point as you don't see teenagers doing it nowadays.

But now there's all these Polish entreprenuers creating all those businesses. Every cloud does have a silver lining after all:D I love a happy ending:D

The average Pole in the UK cannot bring himself to take his car to a British mechanic, or get his hair cut by a Briitsh person. Why would a Polish entrepreneur employ a British person?

I have no idea. I'll ask my boss why she's employed me:D

I avoid British barbers as a plague. Is there any who would just shorten my hairs, without pestering me about hairdo, or trying to sprinkle me with some perfume/ rub some jelly into my hair?

You're an English teacher in Poland? Maybe that's why?

You are so sad, it's unbelievable..
Are you so short-minded to not figure that these people are asking for such preferences due to their language skills?

Wow... now I should classify you to the 'dumb British' but I am not going to offend anybody.
Next time, please make sure that you think about something before you write it down/say..
