Brits fighting alongside Poles and other Europeans defeated the Nazis in the 1940s. Now, several decades later, we all have to work together to ensure that the ignorant vindictiveness of the far-right does not define us as a nation.

History duz not have a bearing on UK today.

Anyone coming to live on my island MUST not expect to be subsidised by me, or their tribez.


Well, it does actually. Had Hitler taken over the UK the likes of you would have probably ended up as a bar of soap.

An abusive slogan daubed across the front of Hammersmith's Polish centre at the end of June has been a talking point ever since it appeared.

Coming a matter of days after the EU referendum result declared Britain will leave the European Union, the incident was widely thought to be an attack on Poles that have settled in the UK as immigrants.

Indeed, the Met Police says it continues to treat the incident, which happened on the Polish Social and Cultural Association (POSK) in King Street on June 26, as a 'racially-motivated hate crime' .

However, some members of online forums and others in the local community have cast doubt on the theory the message was xenophobic, instead arguing the message, reading 'F*** you OMP' was actually aimed at a political think tank in Poland.

UKIP member and passionate Leave campaigner Alex Nieora, who has stood as a UKIP candidate in Ealing at previous elections, believes what was painted on the building is the result of tensions within the Polish community.

He said: “I don’t think it’s a racist slur against all Polish people.

"Lots of Polish people are Eurosceptic. The Polish government and press are Eurosceptic and want to claw back a lot of powers from Brussels.

“But OMP is a Polish think tank which is centre-right and Eurosceptic and issued a statement congratulating Britain on its Brexit vote.

"As someone who speaks Polish and understands Polish politics it seems clear to me that the graffiti was sentiment against Polish people that supported Brexit."

That is absolutely correct. We have seen the hate spew out of the far right against the likes of Lily Allen and Gary Lineker etc. for nothing other than showing compassion towards refugees children and all. Death threats against Lily and calling for Gary to be sacked and leading the way in stirring it all up are the rags like The Sun and the Daily Mail.

Shameful.

Funny how none of our European neighbors want these third world illegal immigrants and economic migrant criminals either...
