So is the USA, if we don’t end this nonsense, and soon.

What a bunch of racist xenophobes! Not welcoming the uneducated hordes and religious zealots. How dare they not greet them with free medicine, free flats, and cater to their every whim!

People coming to the UK from Poland have not been 'illegal' since Poland joined the EU in 2004. Just wanted to make that clear.

When will people start to realize that there are 'different' ways to conquer? Passive invasion....as we see with the British problems with illegal immigrants and the influx of Muslims who are influencing the political process....works well. We see the same thing here in the US with the hoardes pouring over our borders and sucking our social programs dry.

The governments of both countries are so slow to act though that it might be too late by the time they decide to STOP playing politics with our sovereignty and do what is RIGHT for the people they serve.

This is a new kind of war and too many of us...especially the politicians.... are not recognizing it as such.

You're right. It is a foreign invasion without the bloodshed of an all out war. Our politiicans are too busy playing politics to care about the soveirgnty, financial health and identity of this nation. Sadly, we will all pay for it later, including them.

Actually, Polish emigres to the UK are nothing like the insular, ethnocentric Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, Indians, etc. Polish emigres to the UK (and to the US for that matter) tend to learn English quickly and usually have a genuine desire to assimilate, or at least not **** other people off.

When they first started streaming into the UK there were a ton of them who did not speak English, creating a strain on services who were forced to provide Polish translations of official government documents and Polish-speaking interpretors in hospitals and schools. However, as Polish emigres have settled in and learned English quickly, that is becoming less and less of a problem, or so I am told by friends still in the UK.

I have lived in both Poland and the UK and I speak Polish, so I was able to converse with many Polish emigres in the UK. Every last one of them spoke of the severe economic hardships they faced in Poland and how all they wanted to do was make better lives for themselves and their families. Sound familiar? The huge difference here is that the Polish emigres in the UK were 100% legal and, for the most part, did not make trouble.
