Poles living in the UK returning home or not?

There was an interesting piece on this morning's Today Programme about whether Poles in the UK have been going back home or not - my feeling is that they haven't.

This is from the programme's website:

Are Poles returning home?
By Sanchia Berg
Today programme

A leading Polish expert on migration has told the BBC that it is simply not true that half the Polish migrants in the UK have returned home.

A recent report estimated that at least half the 1.5 million eastern European migrants who have come to the UK since 2004 have returned home.
Most migrants - one million - are estimated to be Polish.
"We do not see them here," says Prof Krystyna Iglicka, of the Centre for International Affairs in Warsaw

I get the impression that many Poles have been coming back home lately. I see them a lot in my work, in my home town.

A couple of years ago you only heard stories about ppl leaving and now you hear more and more about ppl coming back.

In UK they saying 700000 have gone home. In Poland they saying they have not, at least in such number. Where is the missing part? probably all over the rest of Europe... Poles, the most mobile European workforce? ;-)

I know some that have returned, and as far as I can see, educated people are returning to Poland as there's a future here for them. But many others are staying - I mean, is a minimum wage meathead really going to have much hope in Poland in the current day?

These dumb from Polish Centre for Intern Affairs dont want to know ( or play fool )that those people wont appear in ZUS ( polish Inland Revenue register ). They dont trust polish goverment and try to avoid rip off.

No. They're all to be found in my local pub.

Where is the missing part?

In the public bar.

I think that this woman isn't 100% updated.

They never knew that we left in the first place. How would they know if, and how many of us, came back?!

Poles left Poland to get more money. Now wages in Poland increase, so other people will come to Poland. That's the rules of the game.

I've done a bit of research and it seems like the vast majority enjoy life in the UK.

Wrong forum, retard.

The overwhelming majority of posters here are not Poles living in the UK but expats
from all over the World living in Poland, American/Canadian Plastic Poles and some
(very few) native Poles. I'm not sure if we even have any Poles currently living in UK
here right now (Wyspi?, Justysia? - I don't know).

Don't worry, wank*er, you're not the first to make that mistake.

*find a forum for Polish immigrants in the UK and spout your pish over there*

What would have happened if we, like France, had tried to keep these migrant workers out after Accession Day?
And so, thanks to their cheerful presence, are we Brits.

Working in a Warehouse and spending so much time in the Gym you should be fluent in Polish by now.

Inappropriate? Well, I did put a ';)' smiley at the end, but since you want to argue...

just as polish as you

No. I always spell 'Polish' with a capital letter.

no less

Well - do you pay your taxes in Poland? Do you have and raise your kids in Poland?
Do you work hard every day to make Poland a better place? No? Well, I do, so don't
give me this bullsh*it, please. Seanus is more Polish than you are: he speaks Polish,
lives, works and pays taxes in Poland and married a Polish girl. How many of these
things do/did you do?

yeah, you're full of shlt, that's all.

No. I always spell 'Polish' with a capital letter.

so, i don't cap hardly anything here.. so, what's your point?

Seanus is more Polish than you are:

lol.. dream on fvcker..

How many of these things
do/did you do?

that doesn't make one polish or not polish.. you can make up any "rules" you want and i am still as polish as you or that bastard sok.

what's your point?

By ignoring the rules of English (and, for that matter, Polish) spelling and writing
'polish' with a small letter, you show disrespect to both Poland and the language
of the country that you currently live in.

fvcker

bastard

Nice... I guess it's a good thing we don't have such a cham among us anymore.
Thank you America!

i am still as polish as you

You can repeat that as many times as you want, it still won't make it true.

At least most Polish people are willing to work in the UK and work hard, most scum/chavs don't want to work, they just bash out a couple of kids by the age of 18 and drain the benefits system. Let more Polish in, and throw the chavs out.

Talk about scapegoats. This is NOT the fault of the Poles, it's the fault of the globalist EU agenda that wants situations to spiral out of control so that they can step in and conduct their global engineering. A mixed Europe is a definite move away from national sovereignty where nation states regulate their own affairs through having the great majority of their citizens at home base.

So, wake up to what Levin, Sodemare and Van Binsbergen really mean and stop blaming the Poles.

Life is a contract (yup, I know) and they earned their places in the UK. If the government cannot do their job, don't blame the foreigners. Why did Brown resign, over Afghanistan? I don't think so! Unemployment and the foreign mass were what crippled him.

plk123 is no second or third generation american with polish roots. He is an expat, thus as much polish as me or you.

As for the OP, thank you for saving us before another jew-thread! A discussion about UK ammigration sounds very refreshing. ;)
