well god forbid that the british government should be able to run its own country (we have the eu to do that now). We didnt put restrictions on the polish in 2004 - big mistake (the germans and french did). Basically the rule seems to be to not trust any former communist nation because they are pretty desperate. I hear Eastern european accents everywhere now, and i dont like it.
Im sure they are nice as pie and have a great work ethic (people need to assess where that work ethic came from) but 2 million since 2004 is a total p**s take. Manufacturing is disapearing in this country as it is, so many lower class, manual worker types already struggle without filling all the jobs with bloody communists.
But until we leave the eu theres nothing we can do about it, more and more british money will be directed eastwards and once the commies have filled their pockets they simply head off back to krakow. I know someone who got a polish builder in who claimed was settling in the uk permantly. They phoned them up to come back and sort out some problems with the work "I sorry, i in Poland now, you find someone else, bye bye"
gardeninghogweed: what he says is true. There are many places where almost all the staff are eastern europeans.
