£1m of child benefit paid out a month - to mothers in Poland

Figures from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) for last year show a 40% rise in income-related benefit claims, compared with the year before, from citizens of the eight eastern European countries which joined the EU in 2004 - known as the A8 countries.

How does it feel to be from a nation of scrounging exiles? Globetrotter around the world, seeking benefits and success on the back of foreign peoples/

Perhaps stay at home and work towards a better Poland would be in your interests.

Romany Gypsies and Poles are not much different :D

Seeking benefits in Ingland is in our interest, isn`t it? :):):):):)

How does it feel to be from a nation of scrounging exiles?

I feel perfectly OK with that. :):):) My great grandfather saved Britain`s ass a few decades ago. I am entitled to compensation, aren`t I?

"Lies, damned lies, and statistics" is a phrase describing the persuasive power of numbers, particularly the use of statistics to bolster weak arguments, and the tendency of people to disparage statistics that do not support their positions. It is also sometimes colloquially used to doubt statistics used to prove an opponent's point.

Which is more or less than it would cost if those kids moved to the UK?

Hudson, your last post was well off-topic.

Now, why don't you answer my question? Don't you have faith in the tax enforcement system?

Poles can often circumvent loopholes and it's just in their nature. An enforcement system should be one step ahead but it clearly isn't.

Shortly after WW1, a newly free Poland stood up against the might of the emerging Soviets. During the early-mid 1930's a huge upheavel in Poland was caused by some middle ranking staff officers. In the early 1950s ,after Stalins death, the pressure on Poland eased slightly but still,untill the 1980s Poland was subservient to the Soviet Union.

Now in the 21st century its rather pathetic for people to take dole charity for some percieved failing somewhere between the mid 30s and mid 50s, especially so when anyone with experience of Poland know fine well that charity is a far worse swear word than any kurwa thrown around in the street, or is that just giving thats a no no, recieving is honorable is it?

EDIT after reading seanus' post above,posted as i was writting the above ;

LMFAO....I swear I hadnt read this when I posted :)
Some Polish must have rubbed off on me ;)

Good points, isthatu2, neatly sidestepping suspension traps :)

I really don't hear much about Poles evading tax here. The tax office is too rigorous with its checks.

Tax Dodging, nah, me neither.
maybe the odd bit of cash in hand building work etc ,but thats a good sign of integration with local customs and working practices :)

I've noticed that many Poles are procedural when it comes to invoices but when mutually beneficial tax avoidance comes in then they will partake in it. I agree with that thinking. I get stung enough here as it is.

Please Hudsonhicks spare us your acrimony about Poles claiming benefits in Britain, as Europeans they are entitled to exactly what anybody else in Europe is entitled to regarding social benefits anywere in Europe.

You can come and move to Poland with your family, work ,live and do the same as a European citizen and the fact that you would get less money than what Poles get in the UK shows that Polish migrants are smart and pick up places with more economic opportunities.

That's what people and their families do Hudsonhicks, they go to where the grass is greener and cannot be blamed for that.

It shows that some Poles lack morals by claiming tax relief in both Poland and UK

they go to where the grass is greener and cannot be blamed for that

Poles are one of Europe's most nomadic, as soon as there are Problems at home, they are off in search of a safer domicile. Lets not forget the following fact why Poles deserted Poland:

1. High unemployment rate in Poland ( no jobs)
2. Low salaries.
3. During the PIS government.
4. Possibility to travel funded by work.

The vast majority of Polish emigrates' , did so on the basis that the Poland failed them so they had to look for better countries to raise their brood. Nothing to do with Poles being smart, quite the opposite the smart ones stayed in Poland.

Nothing to do with Poles being smart,

You just said it they had to leave the country because Poland failed them , they chose countries with generous social policies ( Norway ,UK, France,) so i call that beeing smart .

I do not defend cheaters claiming benefits in both countries but it is the responsability of countries to make sure there is no possibility of abusing their system, fraudsters are everywhere in the world and if countries do not establish strict rules our tax money financing those benefits will always be claimed by fraudsters.

Oh, come on Seanus. When was the last time you got an invoice for dental work? I've never got one from any medical professional. As for car mechanics, I don't think they consider themselves part of the tax system. When I insist on issuing an invoice for my work, most non-corporate clients are extremely surprised. If the tax office got really serious about tax collection, this country would have a lot more cash to fix the health service with.

Looking at the UK you should soon get the first-hand experience. It will be quite funny to be honest...

Yes but I still don't hear about it, teflcat. That's not to say that some diddling doesn't take place. I'm quite sure it does.

way to go, Dr Killmore, a young man who freely admits cheating in his exams. A career in the Polish medical profession awaits.
