Re: A Minibus Full of Poles

BTW – when I did study abroad back in college in Paris all the Dutch were always the poorest, “bring your own lunch and bottle” types…

Poles are not going to come to work in the Netherlands for much longer anyway. This is all caused by economics…and yes, as Dajwid said above at least they got off their asses and are trying to better their futures. Unlike many others.

Re: A Minibus Full of Poles

I shocked a couple of Dutch on my hols in Austria - I told them I emigrated to have a better life in Poland!!
OK - not entirely true (my wife forced me ...) but the look on their face was priceless!
And my life is actually better in material terms.

Re: A Minibus Full of Poles

It's weird that the Dutch generally have this liberal view on drugs and sex, but, aren't as open when it comes to race. The minibus song could just as easily be German. Same stereotypes.

Re: A Minibus Full of Poles

Something more in the Dutch media about Poles with more than 250 responses from readers. Again it's not positive. Sorry it's in Dutch.
