Cameron, a conservative, should know better than subsctribing to the same rhetoric of his brethren across the pond

The article is from my experience and my viewpoint; obviously other people have different experience, so therefore will have different opinions, which in turn makes for interesting debate.

I think there is a tactful way to response to keep the dialog open rather then to shut it down by negativity. Ali – thank you for taking the time to write this article. I think media is known to sensationalize a “story” often create and contribute to more understanding. Good luck living in Krakow (oh how much I miss it..)

It happened even yesterday! Perhaps they don’t ask you because you’ve been here so long you don’t know the answer? :)

My dad was a Polish submarine officer, sunk the German Minesweeper M85 on 1 October 1939 served in Plymouth and eventually commissioned as Captain in the British Army. We lived in Plymouth for four years after the War.

Am dual Polish American citizen and own an apartment in Krakow where my daughter and granddaughter (also dual citizens) now live and study full time. I have business in London so have good Brit friends who tolerate me.

(Maybe the old boy had pangs of conscience after Yalta?)

Promised to defend Poland if the Germans invaded; failed that, welcomed the Polish pilots who per pilot average shot down more German planes than the RAF boys saving Britain in the Battle of Britain; did not allow the Poles to march in the Victory parade and ostracized them after the War so not to have “their boys” unemployed when they returned from the front.
