    Not only are you totally thick, educated twunt. You are a racist too.

    Please carry on.
    The irony is sublime. Are Poles and Brits really a different race?
    Hard Brexit now!

    On a recent trip to Bath we pulled over to a RHS gardens south of the M25 for some lunch. In the restaurant I asked the waitress if it was always this busy (full of mums and babies chattering like it were an olympic sport, this was a Monday). She said sorry my English is not that good. So I asked the next waitress that came along and she apologised as this was her first day. So then I asked the 3rd waitress and she said... wait for it.... in broken English... I only work in the kitchen I don't do tables.

    Seriously people... a trip to the UK these days is like visiting planet Vogon.

These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Nice anecdote. What's the point?

    It's possible. But I don't do cheap and because I've renovated and maintained about 5-6 properties in the last 10-15 years and have some experience, it's noticeable that this is a general trend.

    I missed the quality of services on the continent after being only an hour in the UK since leaving the chunnel.

    Why do you come to the UK if you hate it so much?

    I don't see where he said he hated the UK? Perhaps we criticize what we love most.

    It was more of a collective response to an endless barrage of negative comments about the UK.
