As the thread title suggests and to be updated from time to time with news items not necessarily directly related to Poland but nevertheless noteworthy.

What relevance does it have to a website called PolishForums?

None.

It's probably safe for you to ignore then Delph. It's for Poland-philes interested in maintaining a less parrochial stance in their information and current affairs portfolio.

Neither are your four threads that you started on this page alone about Poland.
(Scroll down and look)
Seems you would be interested in such a thread so you could be the AUTHORITY and tell us all about your homeland of Scotland.

I found an interesting article about how afraid the Governments of the EU have become of todays fake news. It certainly is a problem in the USA as well.

gatestoneinstitute.org/11830/europe-governments-fake-news

It's not relevant to a forum about Poland and Polish affairs.

I dont see anyone else complaining except you.

Its straight out of 1984!

dailysignal.com/2018/01/23/europe-comes-perfectly-orwellian-responses-fake-news

I didn't realize that the news could be even more bogus than it is in the US.

No wonder the Europeans are so uptight about the USA. They are pumping your head full of propaganda, turn the tele off, its all rubbish!

Relax and have a beer, were all friends here:)

Sure Delph,

I would be more than happy to oblige you. But first, keep your nose out of our affairs and you have a deal!

Especially, since you have never been to America and haven't a clue either.

You are a web site about Poland complaining about Polish residents interfering with American affairs?

Indeed, who's the hypocrite.

Is that a trick question Peter ? lol

Polish residents

Polish residents are not Polish citizens.
Are you another Brit that has taken up residency in Poland ? Yes
A Brit who has taken up residency in Poland equals = ex-pat, guest, transplant, immigrant, foreigner, ect. however does not have the privilege to refer to themselves as "OUR" when referring to Poland.

Which one are you ?
To answer your question however, the hypocrite is the person pretending to be a Polish citizen who daily judges with insults America, America's President, America's laws, America's Military, the American people, America's government, America's elections and then tells the Americans:

Keep out of our affairs.

As we can see, this thread is essentially a waste of time. Americans have no idea what is going on in Europe and should keep out of our business.

I am wondering why you are here at all if you don't have an interest in Poland? So far you have been told:

It's not a Jewish/Arab/Palestinian forum - more such off topic posts = suspension

If your intentions are to start threads unrelated to Poland, then you are wasting your time visiting these forums.

Wrong.
Sorry to break it to you, but you don't get to decide who has what rights in Poland, the European Union and Poland define that.

If Poland determines a resident has lived, worked, paid taxes for a sufficient time, then that is within its rights to do so. If a persons focus of life is over a certain threshold, (determined by number of days stay, tax residency, home, work and family life location and childrens schooling) then that person is entitled to call that country their home.

Having been born in a country and then relocating your life somewhere else will weaken those ties to your homeland. The UK, for instance, strips voting right from ex-pats after 10 years.

Unless you are a fully paid up member of society, living, voting, working and contributing on a day to day basis you don't have the moral right to dictate to those who do.

No just my opinion, its Poland and the EU's position.

Also wrong about me, I'm no longer a resident of Poland, but I could get citizenship through ny marriage or descent (father).

Thank you for clarifying your Opinion that we don't agree that you are a Polish citizen anymore then the man in the moon.

but I could get citizenship

As I could get my Polish citizenship through ancestry too and live in Poland which would make me a Polish citizen and keep the gene pool totally Polish.

That would make me a 100% Polish citizen while you would only be 50% Polish and 50% Brit citizen thru marriage living in Poland tainting the Polish gene pool.

Keep Poland Polish ! ;-)

Why don't you practice what you preach? You haven't a clue about America, yet you are constantly trolling this forum about us.

tainting the Polish gene pool.

I think it's pretty clear that this thread needs to be immediately closed if it's to be used for abusive trolling like this.

That doesnt sound like a bad idea at all. I never knew this about the UK. Interesting.

A troll complaining about trolling, oh please! Just go away!

Point proven, I do believe.

Perhaps this thread could stay if only posters actually resident in Poland can post in it. That works for me.

To take a break in the bickering and return to the news, a group of North Africans in Italy recently initiated a stampede amongst football fans in order to create a confused environment to enable their ease of robbery.

youtu.be/_oMMNNvSV3A

The Africans, mainly from Morrocco, pepper sprayed the crowd and then used the ensuing confusion as cover to rob them of their phones, watches and jewellry.

One lady, aged 38, died of a heart attack during the incident. The group conducted a series of robberies during large public events in northern Italy, the Netherlands, France, Germany and Belgium by using pepper spray. The gang was eventually arrested.

Cultural enrichment at it's finest.

Where is the best skiing in Europe? I'm thinking about Zakopane next winter or possibly Switzerland. I've never been to the Alps before. Any skiers?
