Get out of my country "Dave the taig".
Perhaps you should save the sectarian cr*p for the marching season.
The million or so Poles who have come here in the past five years definitely came to work.
Where is "here"? Adelaide?
If you don't even live in the UK then it's none of your business anyway.
They are three times more likely to be law-abiding than the average British resident
Not every "British resident" is truly "British", if you see what I mean. Whereas virtually every "Polish resident" is Polish.
The UK is a very high-crime country with mass immigration from a vast number of nations, many of which are even more crime-ridden, and whose citizens often bring their "issues" with them. Poland isn't subject to this (yet).
and the 134 Polish Catholic churches are packed.
Where do you get these figures from?
I've attended most of the Polish churches in London, as well as those in four major cities outside London. Adding the others that I am aware of would give a total which is nowhere near that figure, yet represents the majority of Polish people in England. There are still many English churches which hold services in Polish, but these are not "Polish churches". There are apparently fewer than 120 Polish priests in the UK, and each church tends to have two priests, or more where the congregation is particularly large (Ealing, for example). So who runs the other churches, then?
Hopefully this will satisfy you, so in summary they are more law abiding than the natives, harder working than the natives, do not claim as much benefit as the natives and according to this more intelligent than the natives, those with the thick accents anyhow. SO ALL YOU TEACHERS OUT THERE TAKE NOTE!
You've clearly got an agenda, so save us the lies. It doesn't appear that you are Polish, so you won't know the community as well as I do. if you did, you would know that many older immigrants and their descendants are fed up of mass Polish immigration, and also understand that previous immigrants of all races in the UK are suffering due to mass immigration. If immigration is so good for the economy, then why are we bankrupt? Please don't give me that "immigrants also pay taxes" line, because most of the recent immigrants are in poorly-paid or comparatively low-paid jobs, which may even attract tax credits, so how does that make the economy better - especially if a lot of the money is sent home, or saved for when they plan to return?
Most British people are hard-working as well, so stop the predictable anti-British media prejudice. The difference here is that Poles have more incentive to work hard if they plan on going back home. If I could move to another country and earn £100K a year for what I do over here, I'd have an incentive for working extra-hard (or give my employer the impression that I'm a "better worker") as well!
