wrong. it's not a tiny minority. (and even if the numbers are small, each murder/rape/mugging is an unnecessary crime against the citizens of this country) could only find this link at short notice but reports from poland/romania law enforcement is that crime is down noticeably in their countries as a lot of undesirables have heard the siren song of the UK.....
Yes, but what sort of crime is it? I can see why translation facilities would be strained, but the impression I get of Polish immigrant crime in general is domestic violence, neighbour disputes, unlicensed cars, and general petty/nuisance crime, but from my perspective the majority of Polish people don't seem more inclined to criminal acts than the rest of the populace, with Romani Gypsies by far more inclined to career criminality and unfairly barging in on Big Issue
selling. And nasty psychos can come from anywhere and everywhere (that Newport ex-Army guy who raped and murdered that heavily pregnant girl).
A symptom of French authorities shunting its immigrants onto us is a minority of African immigrants speaking a French dialect.
Also Zanu Bob's anecdote about dubious immigrants doing vast amounts of very menial, rubbish work matches up with my perceptions - in a Bristol supermarket car park I saw South Asian looking guys doing manual car washing, when a Dominos Pizza place opened at Keynsham they had non-local people standing about with billboards, and a local curry house I walk/drive past on almost daily basis had been employing illegals
