Polish Woman's Letter On BREXIT watch

    • Thread Starter

    written before Farage resigned. thoughts TSR?


    “Dear Mr. Farage

    I am writing to you, because I would like to express my feelings at the current situation.

    One thing I would like to clarify, my intention is not to insult anybody, especially you Sir.

    I am a Polish woman who came to UK in 2006, I had no language skills, only an open heart and a huge desire to live a better life.

    I have learned the language, which I called “musical language”, working far below my qualification, and assimilated with English people.

    British people have a huge and good heart, they taught me your life style, your language which I loved deeply.

    People who I met on my way were far better than you, they opened their heart to me, they have helped me on several occasions, and in return I have given them my friendship and my gratefulness. I call them my friends and that, for some people, means something.

    I learned the language, and I studied at Northumbria University, where I graduated. Before graduation I opened my own business. For the last ten years I lived in UK and I paid my taxes, National Insurance etc.

    Even the recession did not make me want to leave my home in the UK, because I still believed in that country, I did not run away. Polish people are very loyal, and we do not leave sinking ship, when the times are not as good. We stood along with all other British people.

    I would like to remind you that, during the recession your own citizens moved to other countries, but we Polish stood still by your side, working even harder during those difficult times. More hours for much less money, we start buying our houses in UK, spending money to get back British economy on the right track.

    We did not run away with pounds in the pocket to Poland, did we? But again, you did not mention that in your campaign, did you Sir?

    Does it not mean we treat Great Britain as our home country?

    Only thing you were focused on Sir, was money which NHS spent on immigrants...in fact one day after the referendum you admitted you “have made some mistakes”, but the worst part was to watch you and your smile when you said that.

    That was an absolute lack of respect to your own people, people who believed in you and your campaign propaganda.

    To be very clear, I pay for my NHS’ costs from my own pocket which I earned by very hard work, that money does not come from your pocket!!!

    I hope, you realized that all racist behaviour which we face now, it is all your fault.

    I thought you loved your country, but you Sir make Great Britain fall apart.

    I understand you, and all people who have issues to immigrants, but you turn you anger against the wrong people. Polish people are hardworking employees, people with ambitions, with proud and loyalty... we are very similar.

    But you decided to hit the biggest immigrant’s population in UK to be heard, you, Sir have chosen the easiest way to get what you want, not the best way.

    I remember only once when Polish people were appreciated and you fought for our voices — only when you counted on our votes.

    I was looking forward to becoming a British citizen, but now, with what happened after the referendum, I am less keen on doing so, you and your propaganda have made me change my decision.

    Have you realised that you have ruined thousands of people’s dreams?
    I personally believe that “if you doing something good, the good thing will come back to you twice, but the same rule applies if you doing something bad...” I really hope this does not work this time, because if it does, then you will have a sad life, and I pity you.

    I bet your own citizens who emigrated to other European countries have the same feelings, because now they feel parliament betrayed them. They might be pushed to leave everything they achieved wherever they are, and come back to UK, not necessarily willingly.

    I know you are very busy man, but I wish to speak with you. I wish to hear from you personally why you think that we Polish people have such a bad impact on the country.

    As far I remember someone already “fought for us” but you have learned nothing, so I would like to remind you that we are proud, ambitious, loyal and hardworking people, and for many of us Great Britain is a HOME, and we will fight for it with dignity.


    Poignant and thought-provoking.

    I wept.
Do I go to The Streets tomorrow night?
