Polish Immigrants Returning Home Cite Fear of Terrorism, Anti-White Racism by Black Brits

Oliver JJ Lane, Breitbart, May 12, 2018

WARSAW, Poland: Polish migrants living in and leaving the United Kingdom for their native country have cited concerns about life in contemporary Britain, with issues including economics, anti-white racism, and terrorist attacks.

While the readjustment of the British economy, rapid growth in Poland, and the pending departure of Britain from the European Union account for some returnees, Polish emigres to Britain interviewed for a feature in Polish magazine wSieci also revealed a number of other concerns.

One of those is a fear of terrorism after a series of deadly attacks in 2017. {snip}

Priest Mateusz Konopiński, and Tomasz Kania, who has lived in London over ten years, told the magazine they “are fully aware that London has not been a safe city for a long time, and that something could happen here any time soon . . . we can’t be [totally] sure that the security services will detect terrorist actions on time.”

Similarly, Mother Ewa Pastuła, who recently moved back to Poland after living in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, told wSieci that she felt much safer in a small British city than in London, but “only when she came back to Poland did she understand what it means to feel really safe.”


[Poland] has not seen a single Islamic extremist attack, while Western European nations have seen dozens in recent years. Indeed, a senior British-born, Polish politician went so far as to claim in 2017 that to reduce the chances of terror attacks “the only proven method is not to allow Muslim migrants”.


Less positive, however, is the attitude that some members of Britain’s ethnic minority communities that have been shown towards white, Christian Polish arrivals. The magazine reported “aversion towards Poles and visitors from Eastern Europe . . . exhibited by black people.”

The comments come after a number of high profile racist attacks against Poles by ethnic minorities hit British headlines. Police appealed for witnesses in Coventry in 2017 after a young Polish woman on a night out was abused and had her nose and cheekbone broken by a gang of three Asian men in what was described as a “racist attack”.


Concluding the article, wSieci notes an enduring reason for remigration to Poland: Poles having children in England but wanting to bring them up in a stable environment.
