Culture isnt an achievement, its a result

So lung cancer from smoking equals culture?

No dude. That's ridiculous. That's like saying injuries from football equals culture.

In case you didn't notice, I was just taking the p*ss out of you.

Are you Polish

Nope. I'm Australian - supposed to have no culture at all.

Are you, I never knew that.
There are many Australians on PF.

supposed to have no culture at all.

Rubbish convicts have culture too, don't they? ;)

Have either of you lived in Britain?

I went to Southampton Uni for four years. Imagine Limerick mixed with Harlend and Wolf. Desperately depressing place.

WHAT IS SO SPECIAL LIVING IN U.K

I live in the Highlands of Scotland which is a very special place for me.
Outside my door is one of the last natural wildernesses in Europe with a sense of timelessness.

I have a great sense of tradition and of a particular way of life which I value very much.

The only thing that sucks about it is that it is part of the U.K.

The other two were pretty lame.

But the scenery was gorgeous, admit it. Something that Poland can never compete with.

All countries are special in some aspects.

The reason why many Poles went to UK was probably that they know English better than Swedish, French and other European languages.

And the fact that the UK was among the first EU nations to open their labour market to Poles with no restrictions (Germany still has some, and in France there are no restrictions only since last year)

Nothing to do with an easy ride then ?

Claiming benefits etc.

WHAT IS SO SPECIAL LIVING IN U.K ......... its what is called " a welfare state ".

For me it was the crisps and the greater variety of food. I dare say I'd be a roly-poly if I lived in the UK. I miss so many brands of crisps. Maybe it's a blessing in disguise as crisps can be a scoffing food. My Dad does that after beer but he seems to have a healthy metabolism.

More Swedes know english than Poles, I was there and everyone I talked to spoke english, and they didn't have that horrible accent.

"What's so special about living in the UK?"

Well, if your a teacher you get time off if it snows (or the weather man said it COULD snow)

If you are a teacher, I hope you know how bad your grammar is.

WHAT IS SO SPECIAL LIVING IN U.K

not much i guess, mostly work and money, i didn't experience people much while i was there, i'm not really in position to judge, when i was in scotland i had depression, in london people were rude, the good things were the teenagers and squatting at places, uk people are different when they are abroad (better i think)

i was still quite young when i was there i just thought i just put my penny in

Personally I think the place has gone to the wall.Maybe people think its special as its known a treasure island.The land of hand outs.

A plus point there is no another place on the planet like a traditional English pub with a good selection of real ale.
