  • Taking our jobs and our women

    by Sunny
    22nd December, 2007 at 2:19 am    

    Typical bigotry from the News of the World:

    A girlfriend set to marry her fiancé flushed her relationship down the drain when she started having sex with their Polish plumber. Besotted Lindsey Goodman, 26, has now left Philip Martin and moved in with new love Adam Stojak.

    Randy Stojak—one of the millions of East Europeans over here accused of taking British jobs—admitted he had no qualms about stealing our women too. He said: “I have made love to a few girls over here, and so have my friends from Poland.

    The NotW might as well be run by Asians since they are great at these stories. In August I pointed out how this was very prevalent during Partition. Good to know that they’re stealing our women bigotry and sexism is alive and kicking in our national media too. *shakes head*

      UNDER paid, over-sexed, over here?

      “A girlfriend set to marry her fiancé flushed her relationship down the drain when she started having sex with their Polish plumber.”


      “stealing our women too.”

      Inferiority complex.

      You know what’s interesting?

      No one ever voices a similar sentiment to foreign women who hook up with guys of whatever country they are in. Sure, I’ve heard the snarky “Italian men like American women because they can’t handle Italian women” or “All the ‘good’ black guys go for white girls” or “We are losing all of our ‘good’ Asian men to white women.” But I have yet to hear a propietous (sp) claim towards men vis-a-vis foreign women who live and work in the country and presumably present some sexual and social danger to the entire society: “American women are romping their way into Italy stealing all of our men!” in Italy, or “Those American women flock to the UK and are taking over our men!” Apparently, it is assumed that men have full faculty and power over their decisions, whereas women are “taken” and “stolen”- ie, it’s not that the women willfully, consciously and with full awareness chose to be with a guy. It’s that they are in the passive- they are “taken.”

      This bit was pretty funny though:

      “Philip told us: “The only good thing to come of this I suppose is she waited until the kitchen was done before telling me.

      “I’ve not paid him for that and I won’t be paying him. He’s had my girlfriend—what more can I say.”"

      I’ve certainly no complaints about the influx of gorgeous central and eastern European women. Since 25 (I’m at the wrong end of 30) most of my long term relationships have been with foreign girls: French, Swedish and now Italian. By accident rather than design (I’m a Londoner).

      My home-grown female friends and colleagues don’t seem too fussed (by all the foreign competition I mean, not my unavailability) unless that is, they begin to link their status as 30-something singles with the new blood - I have to admit there are benefits to going out with a woman who insists on making dinner every evening…

      Classic British tabloid stuff: a cross between soft porn and xenophobia. Nothing seems to have changed much over the years. In the eighties it was the hordes of Afro-Caribbean immigrants who were running away with your women, now it’s the East Europeans.

      Better lock up your women. The Poles are coming!

      I prefer to steal their women. Does that mean I am an anti-bigot?

    8. miss america — on 22nd December, 2007 at 6:58 pm  

      As an American who’s stolen both British men and jobs from locals obviously more deserving than me, I just say “Rock on, Poles.” ;p

      This is like a few months ago when the papers were going on about the whole “45% of jobs created since ’97 have gone to foreign-born workers.” And I looked around at the 11-member web team I’m on, including a Canadian, a Somalian, a Dutch guy and me, and had a few very snarky thoughts about Brits and their skills and qualifications. ANYway…on with the cultural miscegenation… ;)

      This may be relevant:

      Good to see how quickly eastern europeans become part of our society.

    10. Gibs — on 22nd December, 2007 at 10:12 pm  

      Isn’t the News Of The World one of the papers that always complains about immigrants not integrating ?

      This Polish citizen has ceraintly integrated - so the NoTW shouldn’t complain (unless of course it doesn’t really believe in integration after all).

      “The NotW might as well be run by Asians since they are great at these stories.”
      Talk about desperately trying to create the most extremely tenuous of links. That was lame.
      These stories have been going on since time immemorial amongst people.
      Sorry, story was crap racism yes, but the link to your ‘previous story’ was crap and its not like this isn’t always going on. Not sure what your aim was in this. All it demonstrates is that the focus has shifted to Poles.

      “The NotW might as well be run by Asians”
