Do I have a problem with Polaks coming here n the thousands,
I remember sitting in a bar in Poland in early 2004, reading the news. A certain foriegn minister called "David Blunkett" had made a statement with regard to peoples fears about the number of immigrants expected to arrive in the UK from the A4 countries who were joining the EU on the 1st of May. He stated that between 12-15,000 was the amount from all four countries. When I showed this artical to my Polish friends they were amazed, they said that at least 15,000 would be going from their town alone. It gave everybody a good laugh.
Lib/Lab/Con, whoever you vote for, none have promised to stop immigrants except for UKIP and the BNP. It has to follow that any party which stopped europeans from entering the UK would also have to bring the UK out of the EU as the right to work in any member state is enshrined in EU law, all of the first three parties I named are pro-european so as long as they keep lying to the British public and people vote for them, things will never change.
I personally think its too late now anyway, many immigrants are now second and third generation so how do you send them "home"? I was already fed up with the UK and left in 2004.
Its funny, but Poland reminds me of how England used to be when I was a child, nice people (generally), its safe, friendly and I have not seen any evidence of drugs (in the small town I live in), probably not able to afford them anyway.
oxon, get to know your neighbours, try a few friendly words in their language, you would be suprised how they grow on you. Supporting the BNP would be a wasted vote, they are too extreme, try and help Labour get back into power, they will definately increase the benefits again.
Good luck to you and I hope you find work soon.
