    and that has to assume all 31,940 come from Poland, which is practically impossible to assume.

    They are not insignificant numbers, that however, is a different discussion to be had.
    20,085 families
    31,940 children

    About 80% from Poland at a guess.

    CBA to work out the total.

    There are approx. 911,000 Poles in the UK.

    That'll explain why Poland's military has managed to expand its armed forces at such at rate, all thanks to the CBA.

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. 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.”

    Reasonable reparations for being sold down the river to the USSR in 1943.

    Or to put it another way, Poland receives (10.638/3.553) ~3 times more from the EU, than it pays into the EU.

    And yet the easily led that read the Daily Wail believe the whole of the Polish population is at it, and once we come out of Europe suddenly this will solve all these kinds of fictitious problems.

    So we can look forward to future reparations for being sold down the river in 2016.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Polish economy has grown by 200 billion since 2004 so your figures don't add up, that is 200 billion per year compared to 6 billion from the EU.
    I'm alright Jack
