    As far as the Polish character is concerned I've addressed this issue in past threads I started, but I will repeat a few of those words.

    I find Poles to be EXTREMELY stubborn! This inate stubborness is why they get this American characterisation for being dumb. Not only do I find them to be stubborn, but I've also noticed they can be highly emotional. Stubborness and lots of emotions together will often cloud good logic. This stubborness also explains why they remain so loyal to the Catholic Church in a period when most other cultures are seeing that religion for all its faults and foibles.

    Physically, most Polish-Americans I've met seemed to be sallow skinned Alpines. I know everyone rushes to classify them as blonde-haired East-Baltids or Neo-Danubians, but I see a lot of them with balding, straight brown hair, tanned sallow skin, hazel eyes, short to medium in stature, stout in build, round faced, with fleshy, coarse facial features. Lots of mustaches and sunglasses too.

    I also noticed they could be rather crude and vulgar in their mannerisms, but very hard-working and tidy in their premises. I also noticed that both men and women of this group seem to share a strong weakness for alcohol.

    It is very difficult when you start looking back so far. After all , we could do the same thing with the Poles. Many are people from the Baltic coast. Now as we found on Skadi, some Germans were well aware that even in the Nazi era, many Poles we considered 'sufficiently germanic' in racial terms to be incorparated into the future of the Volk. So apart from language - which certainly wouldn't be a problem for the children - many could indeed assimilate without too much difficulty. This would not obviously apply to all!

    So I would argue that some may well be absorbed without too much difficulty - beyond the language issue, that is. It is this which underlies the immediate problem for primary schools.... but I do see that some schools at least are already learning to sing a few Polish Christmas carols.....better that than they teach the muslim faith to our own surely....

    Hmm, well, in comparison with Afroasians, of course they are compatible with English population.

    But if youacceptthem, then you should accept any European immigrant as future english. Or any racially comptible people.

    I would still want to distinguish folk from the North of Europe - even perhaps from the Baltic region, from those of Southern and South East Europe. It is however a matter of degree; we all know where the real problem lies!

    ......but at this point we are in the filed of Nordicism, and NOT Germanicism anymore.

    And if it's so.......it's a question of subracial compatibilty than a cultural one, since all the immigrants should be anglicized anyway.
    So.......a precise nationality (northern , southern, eastern European) hasn't sense anymore.

    I know amongst the Germans they have a reputation as thieves and troublemakers, but from my own personal experience, i've never seen this. Most of the Poles i've met have been extremely friendly, easy going, and generous. Although they also can be rude and very loud and intimidating, and most of them seem to like getting completely pissed out of their heads and having fights as well.

    As Oswiu says though, there are far too many in England at the moment. Whether i like the Poles or not, i like the English better, and i prefer to keep my country as English as possible.

    While Poles are much more compatible with English people, in a way that is the problem. It would take centuries to blend Africans into the population to the point that such ancestry would not be discernible. With Poles however in a couple of generations they would be blended to a point where they couldn't easily be separated out. With almost a million here already, the British population would soon be fundamentally altered on a racial level, and it would be irreversible. If there is interbreeding with Asians and Africans, people who want to stay true to the English people won't have a hard time avoiding those with non-English blood, if there was interbreeding with Poles then they would. It's the same sort of mistaken argument that mainstream conservatives make in favour of integration and against multiculturalism, I say if immigrants have to be here, then it is better to have clear lines between them and us by letting them keep their own culture and staying in their own areas, rather than slowly blending everything together.

    Put simply it's the thin end of the wedge; first it is Poles, then Bulgarians, beacuse they're fairly close to Poles, then Armenians, because they're not that different to Bulgarians, then Turks, because they aren't far off Armenians, then it's Arabs, because they aren't that different from Turks, then there's Berbers, because they're a lot like arabs, then there's nigerians, because hey, they're fairly compatible with Berbers.

    Whether you ship in Poles first, or skip straight to the Nigerians, the end result is the same.

    What I have problem with Poles is their catholism. That's the most un-germanic faith ever, there's no room for Pope benders in the protestant Germanic sphere. However if these new immigrant adopt the Northern European protestantism, culturally assimilate I have no problems with Polako's.
