-I'll be beaten by Scottish nationalists as immigrant,because of my POLAND armpatches :D, -I'll meet some old Scotts that still remember these guys and will recognize armpatches and we will have a nice chat :) - I'll meet one of the Polish veterans living still in Scottland :D and will have realy nice chat with him. :D

If you get in any trouble just remember the way to a Scotman's heart - alcohol. ;)

It's interesting to see how the reaction to Polish labour has changed in 50 years.

Scotland doesn't seem to have a problem with Poles. In fact, I'm friends with a few. Quite a lot come to study here at Glasgow University.

There's guite a large Polish community in Trowbridge, Wiltshire (South-West England for those who don't know where it is), both from the end of WW2 and the recent immigration. Quite a few locals (though still a minority) have protested about the large number of Poles living and workiing in the town. Personally i've nothing against them, IMO if they want to improve their lives they should be allowed to, we owe it to them really. They do tend to be exploited when it comes to accomodation, which i think is disgusting. A lot of them seem to be hard working and law abiding, though some locals claim they all sponge off the state, which is nonsense. There is a Polish woman who works at the same place i do, she also works as a cleaner, she told us she wants her two kids to have a good education and a good future, fair play to her. I also work with a Londoner, a dense, repulsive little man, who regularly slags off the Poles, we wish he'd piss off back to London.

How strange, up here in Bristol we have all sorts of Eastern Europeans and no one bats an eye lid really, older folk moan, yet it doesn't effect them, work that one out??? I certainly cant!
