As the coronavirus epidemic gathered pace, Jaroslaw Bacdorf agonized over whether to stay in London, where he has lived and worked for eight years, or head back to Poland to join his wife, children and mother. After a morning phone call on Wednesday, he packed his bags.

‘I spoke to my mum and my kids,’ said Mr Bacdorf standing in an eerily deserted terminal building at London City Airport, his baggage already checked, just a few hours after that conversation.

‘My mum said, ‘Come home, you don’t know what will happen in a week, two weeks, or three weeks,’ he said.

They say the government’s slow response and a creaking health service contrast poorly with Poland’s health system and aggressive actions. The epidemic also put many of them out of work.

In recent weeks, as countries across the world have closed their borders or set down stringent entrance requirements, many people have found themselves stranded abroad, forced to choose where, and with whom, they want to be at a time of crisis and anxiety.

In Britain, home to more than 800,000 Poles, thousands have taken repatriation flights, concerned with a relatively slow British response to the crisis and worried about the state of the country’s austerity-weakened health service.

Mr Bacdorf’s flight was almost the last to depart London City Airport before it closed to civil aircraft, to accommodate the military as it helps equip a 4,000-bed temporary hospital nearby, a symbol of the government’s last-minute scramble to cope with the challenge.

To many Poles, the British reaction to the threat has been too slow, complacent even, compared with things back home. ‘The Polish government seems to be much stricter in its response,’ said Mr Bacdorf, 44, a tall, bearded and good-humoured information technology expert. ‘Here in Britain, I would call it a joke.’

‘Even today, when I did some final shopping, people were gathering in their gardens, drinking wine,’ he added.

Nor does Britain’s overstretched National Health Service inspire confidence, even if Britons sometimes seem to fret that foreigners exploit it. ‘Let’s be honest, it’s not fantastic,’ said Mr Bacdorf. ‘I used the National Health Service once and it was a terrible experience.’ Like this story?

  • Hi Mike, Reading your (true) story reminds me how often I have been shocked to hear English friends on mine complaining about Polish immigrants in the UK, passing comment of the henceforth caricatural Polish plumber.I really could not understand their criticism over some foreigners coming to their country to find a job and a decent life and, on another hand, their acceptance, tolerance towards sub-Saharan Africans whose culture is so different than our own, Europeans.I guess this is because, alike some French have been taught since the 60’s, we “owe them”!  Such a sham!

    • I think the resentment was the preserve of the really dumb or those with an axe to grind. I am Liverpool born and a more or less lifetime resident of Britain. It is and was common knowledge that most British workers are workshy and tend to be inept. Eastern and Central Europeans were the opposite so they were favoured in all sectors. Yes, ‘they’re taking our jobs’ but one could hardly blame employers. I knew many employers too. They were scathing about the workshy Brits when comparing them with the honest and better skilled Europeans, not just poles.

      • I see your point, Mike… The employers and the state, of course, were/are to blame when taking in too many foreigners who eventually will become a threat to their own workers. There should be a balance but greed won’t allow it…

    • Same here in America. I have heard people openly rip on Russians. They shame Germans because of WWII. A number of white leftists in America today constantly bash their ancestors as being “evil” and “genocidal” Heck, I recall one time some coworkers a few years ago ripping on some White South Africans that were living and working around us at the time. They would not dare talk that way about Mexicans or Asian or other nonwhite groups. Seems like it is easier for whites to attack other whites than other groups as there is less stigma or repercussions for whites attacking other whites. That’s why so many white liberals will attack our ancestors or other whites. I’m sure it’s the same in other Western nations. I see many videos and pictures of nationalists in Western Europe being attacked by large swaths of white leftists. It’s disheartening to see our people so divided, especially at a time like this.

      Contrast that with Eastern Europeans. Unlike Western Europe or America, they are united as a people, they are strongly proud of being who they are, they are willing to FIGHT for their nation/their people, and they are proud of their ancestors. My only hope is that they don’t let in leftists/liberals from Western Europe or America.. The reason is because many of them will just vote in the same problems that led to the decay in America and Western Europe etc.

      • I entirely agree with you, Occidental. Eastern Europeans suffered greatly under communism but they finally stood up and walk tall! Nothing to compare with the invasion we’re facing !

  • And coming back to accepting people who won’t – in any way – benefit our countries, I insist it’s a sham. To help them in their own country is a answer but will it last? Europeans were forced out African countries in which they were born and what happened? Within a decade, these countries went into decay, unemployment and sometimes famine followed… Something I cannot understand : We were supposed to be ‘so bad’ to them… why then, are they following us in Europe? Instead of fleeing in masses, they should show the world, they’re capable of managing a country, in their own way!

    • Their response is white people “Stole” all their resources and got rich off their backs. Typical answer as they are too stupid to create the things we can, they know that, and they resent us for that. I always ask them, “So what paradise was your nation like before whites came there? Where were the skyscrapers? Where were the industries? Where were the hosptials? Where were the universities? Where were all the great works of literature from your ancestors?”

      The problem also is lots of whites nowadays do not see race either. Many whites today are willfully naive and in denial about race and group identity, or they flat out hate themselves for being white. Even many of the so-called “patriots” in America are not racial or ethnic nationalists, they are against ‘identity politics’ (except for Israel and nonwhites, of course), and they somehow think that magically all the third-world people will suddenly act like Europeans will once they step foot in our nations. “Oh, I’m against illegal immigration!” Yet I point to them that many non-Western/third world people have come here “legally” and gotten educated in American univeristies and many of them hate whites/hate America. They sound as delusional as the liberals do. Whites in America, be they liberal or conservative, often call each other ‘racists’ and ‘disown’ whites who are prowhite or make ‘racist’ comments against nonwhites, yet they still have not grasped the importance of race. “Oh, I don’t see race!’ they say. I say “Just because you don’t see race doesn’t mean these other groups dont.” That’s like a rabbitt thinking, “Oh, I don’t know why that wolf wants to kill me. I mean, I don’t see him as a wolf. I see him as a fellow species with dignity and feelings!”

      So I laugh when I hear fellow Americans who mock Europe for being politically correct when even the must gung-ho “patriots” here in America are a timid as the Swedes, Brits, French, Germans, Danes, Belgians, etc are today.

      With the except of Eastern Europeans and possibly Southern Europe (like Greece recently for sure), I do not see that the West has really woken up to the dangers we face. Even after this Corona Virus passes, they will go back to their usual liberal, naive, self hating, consumer-driven ways.

    My family worked in mines, in the dockyards, in the fields, and served the Anglo-Zionist regime on several battle fronts. What’s all this White Guilt crap? I owe non-Europeans nothing, my family owes non-Europeans nothing. The Anglo-Zionists, however, owe me and my family an explanation why some of us lie at the bottom of oceans and in some far-flung places with unpronouceable names.
