    Look polish people ,,, yes you've come over here to earn better money and enjoy a better life etc etc,,,,, but cmon,,,, I think it's time to consider supporting your own country now, and I know for a fact that a lot of you are starting to moan.... BIG TIME?!! Yes agreed, you work hard and integrate fairly wel with Britishl,,, but we have so many manual labour jobs for example , that SHOULD be going to our own lazy sods that SHOULD be earning and contributing to the system...
    If we Brits came to Poland and and took your jobs, you would be saying exactly the same thing, yes ??? Of course you would , so to conclude, we know what the answer is .. and we also know that we have more than enough English that can do jobs only the Polish think they can do better than us .. it transpires that we can't because you lot got your boots in the door first This is just how it is.. if you don't like it, and the whole Brexit situation ...stop moaning and GO HOME!! Simple ..

    Majority of Poles who went to Britain did it for the good feelings towards British people, respect for the UK a country for centuries an Allie of Poland, to work and give the best they can to this allways highly respected country. Poles are generalny peacefull but still they want to live the best they can. They surely can fight, defend, work...though if there is a necessity. If you hurt them or the UK they will surely fight back fiersely. They seek friends, integrate easily and are happy being needed and wanted. They also have one unique characteristic as a majority - if not wanted and disrespected they will surely leave. Never will any hosting Nation hear from Poles that "we are here, we will stay and you can't do anything about it". Yes you can. Just tell them over and over again that they are not welcomed here or that you don't want them, and sooner or later you will never see them again. To be happy in Britain we must be happy with eachother, if not, most Poles can't live being a burden of any sort to the autohtonic part of the British Society. If not wanted Poles will not stay, they will just pass through.

      Darek Matuszewski 14 days ago

      @anthony perkins The answer is located in my first mail. True that the number of Poles in the UK decreases every year for years now. Many Poles were in favor of UK being free from EU obligations. Many dream of a Polexit too. Good luck.

    • anthony perkins
      anthony perkins 14 days ago

      @Darek Matuszewski Wrong, resentment dislike and hate boiled up underneath and exploded toward your people in the run up to and on the day of the brexit vote to leave the EU ie physical violence verbal abuse vandalism to polish shops threats to your people swearing etc and not just that, many eastern European businesses closed and took off back to Poland and other regions of central and eastern Europe because of the general feeling of disdain dislike and bad feeling those people felt, and it could well happen again end of this month as the UK leaves the EU, now what do you think of that?

    • Darek Matuszewski
      Darek Matuszewski 14 days ago

      @anthony perkins They were receiving invitations, job offers, information about opportunities, info. about open borders for them...and it was not polite to ignore them so they took some. Many British folks till today are happy with the work Poles had done for them and the help they had received.

    Poles in UK clearly haven't understood all the pitfalls of living in a foreign country. There will always be small part of population that doesn't like you, be impolite and even hostile towards you. Its not just UK, the same problem exists in many European countries.

    Typical example of a biased bbc programme and another reason, should one be needed, why I have never bought a tv licence. People of Polish origins have lived and worked here at least since 1945, have learned our language, accepted our culture and simply got on with it.

    • Godehard Brysch
      Godehard Brysch 16 days ago

      This is not the issue. You mention 1945, but now there is a change. Not BBC but
      SkyNews: They reported that just after the Referendum the hate crimes towards the Polish had increased enormously. The chairwoman of the Polish Society was in the Studio, she was quite matter-of-fact, stating: We have been persistently attacked but now it's getting worse. Surely, things might become normal, but this does not necessarily mean that the programme is biased. Immigration was a major aspect in the Referendum, but the analysis showed that all different People had been categorized as immigrants, even EU citizens who had the Right of free movement. Now this is going to be abolished, biased or not.

    Why do you come here? For selfish benefits only. If Poland is so great why did you leave? To better yourself, well then you are welcome but if you are here not to integrate then accept that it is you who is saying you do not want to be British. Do not hate the hand of kindness with your vile twisted selfishness. Goodbye and may God go with you. When Nazi EU turns on you as they did twice last century then you can call on us again for your freedom.

    This really grates me all this i for one have met many good people from various countries and the only down thing i can say is its often the inability to be able to mix with the locals we could all benefit from that , the job front is an issue not of any worker from any country as such though business management has got very poor , standards have dropped and companies can do what they like ,though we in uk often think we should be famous and wealthy as soon as leave school which needs sorting as does the ability to move up a ladder for company workers . Lots have no idea of how to manage and lots should not be in a job they are in , the work place needs an overhaul and we all need to communicate better with each other to move on and progress

      Jack Bare, Freedom of Movement only applies to EU citizens, people who are usually white and come from Poland, France, Germany, Spain ect. Muslims immigrants and refugees from North Africa and the Middle East are not EU citizens, the vast majority of muslim immigrants coming to Britain have nothing to do with the EU.
      The UK controls all of our immigration outside of Europe and we aren’t part of the EU’s Common Asylum Policy.

    • Jack Bare
      Jack Bare 25 days ago +1

      @Happy Pancake, That is exactly why the British want to get out of the EU, we don't want to be invaded by immigrants from the EU and the wave of Muslim immigrants which they have let in.

    • Happy Pancake
      Happy Pancake 25 days ago

      Jack Bare, because Britain is also in the EU, freedom of movement. When the eastern block of countries joined the EU in the 1990s the UK and other EU nations tried to attract unskilled labour from the EU.

  • Squeaky Soliloquy
    Squeaky Soliloquy 27 days ago +1

    The Poles are so hard working that you can see all that wealth they create when you visit their rural areas... I mean seriously, people still using cart horses to ferry goods. Poland is a poor country. Britain is rich as a country because British people have worked hard for it over hundreds of years. Put your own country in order before you go slagging off another. This country isn't great because a few hundred poles break a sweat packing boxes in a chicken factory, it's great because of our hard working indigenous people over hundreds of years. You only look at a handful of unemployed brits and then assume we're all like that. The proof is in the pudding, Britain has always been great, that's why everyone wants to come here. Do you see people flooding to Poland?
    I'll give them this though, the Poles made great pilots in WW2, the Battle of Britain.

SO HOW DEAR YOU SAY YOU DO JOBS WE DO NOT WANT!!! 🤬😤😡🤬 “ you go there to uk improve your life” you said it, whilst you take my jobs away from me. You do not interstate. You just take. Uk is a tiny island and your country is large. Poland is supposed to be a fabulous large country whilst the uk is small and ruined by too much immigration... PLEASE, GO, LEAVE, FOR I DO NOT WANT YOU TAKING MY JOBS THAT I AM WILLING TO DO YOU INSULTING IGNORANT SNOBS. GO ON BUGER OFF AND STAY AWAY. GOOD RIDONS !

Maybe they were better than you, even if they worked for less money then you should be able to do the same and you wouldn't lose your farm. If I feel good in this country, if I came here legally and work legally then why should I listen to you and go back? Just because you are moaning?

    The general point I’m making is you only three example of immigrants who obviously are pro-remain not showing any example of immigrants who might be pro-leave when they do exist and in plentiful numbers

      So you say, the Scottish wants to leave the UK, and become independent and the Irish reunification, how could that be, when in fact they would be governed by EU. It do not make sense at all. Either they fully independent by not being a member of the club such as the EU or the UN.
      Earlier in the 2019, the Russian president, Vladimir Putin said in and interview, that there is no independent countries on this planet, only interdependent nations, which he is correct.
