      Let us not forget EU open doors immigration benefits IT contractors more than anyone

        One of the issues the big boys find is a lot of Poles treat perm more like contracting, the good ones move every 6-12 months.
        That was the impression I got when I was over in Krakow for a wedding. Rather liked the Poles I've met despite some Polish football supports smashing up the local 'Spoons once. Then again, it's not as if English supports are squeaky clean.

              Coincidentally, Apple's back tax is not far off RoI's annual health budget (13.1 billion Euro for 2015).

                I went to school in Ealing which was the area the emigre Poles who fought for Britain settled in after WW2.
                All solid blokes. Never understood the hostility to them.
                As Niall Ferguson wrote after Brexit - all Western countries need immigrants and the UK was lucky to have Catholic Poles who would become unrecognisably British in one generation (apart from funny names) unlike France and Germany who get mainly Islamic immigrants.

                This makes me glum
                Hard Brexit now!

                    So given that in your previous post you stated you had changed nothing, am I correct in assuming you are unsuccessful?

                    It needs forcing on them.

                      Limerick is not that bad these days.
