    My daughter had to see a podiatrist today. We were assigned to see a specialist with a clinic in a health centre in one of the less salubrious parts of Liverpool.

    I was utterly shocked. The place was nearly full of Romanians. All in separate family/groups. Got nothing against them being here, just hadn’t seen many up to now and was completely shocked to see so many in one place. The health centre even had a couple of interpreters going round and dealing with each group as I don’t think any of them spoke English. I asked if it was a special Romanian induction/registration but apparently it wasn’t and it’s been like that every day for the last week.

    Has there really been that much of an influx since 1st Jan..??

    Only where you are, I’d wager.

    Nah, they drove here, but some bugger nicked their car wheels when they stopped at the traffic lights…

    And you didn’t ask him to send you a photo of him with a fish on his head to prove it was really him?

    I spoke to a Romanian (who’s in this country) on the phone yesterday so yes, the Daily Mail was right.

    You should be angry that you went in to a shop that exclusively sells polish with a sideline in Jamaican Stout. There is no way that will last long in this economic climate.

    Jamaican stout?

    Can’t imagine sitting in tropical climes with a pint of stout…

    Unless it is served in a coconut husk with a little umbrella

    Why was a polish shop selling alcohol and not sticking to their main source of income, furniture cleaning and protecting products?

    Just to clarify, at the health centre not the podiatry clinic.

    Well if a group of people had planned to travel it would make sense that there would be an elevated number at the start of the time that they could. It would also be likely that if you wanted to see them, the best place to go would be a health centre etc. where said people would be told to go and register.

    But honestly why anyone would choose to head to Liverpool is a bit strange

    I remember having the same realisation that the place was overrun with them. Then I realised I was in Brasov station, waiting for a train to The Black Sea

    Did anyone see Benefit Street last night though? I ‘m sure the Daily Mail did, and it’s blood pressure rose accordingly. I felt sorry for the poor bastards! Just trying to make a living. And had clearly been stitched up like kippers, promised the world, then delivered into virtual slavery, and poverty by gang masters!

    Where did you go on the Black Sea binners? I’ve been to Brasov – nice place.

    Brasov is lovely. I went on a lovely train journey (better rail system than here!) down to Olymp, which was one of the most bonkers places I’ve ever been in my life!

    I doubt I’d be heading for a less salubrious area of Liverpool if I loved in either of those places

    surely Brasov is Polish ?

    The Romainians in Benefit street came across a lot better than the indigenous population of the street. Probably partly in the edit but even so.

    You’ve obviously never tasted some of the dodgy Polish vodka I’ve had 😕

    Never been to Olymp – I DJed at a music festival in Vama Veche which is a little hippy-ish place on the Black Sea. Sadly we drove there though which was a bloody nightmare!

    I’m showing my ignorance here but my knowledge of the Eastern European and Slavic languages is almost non-existent so I’d not even know if they were all Romanian. Maybe it would help if we got them all to wear some sort of badge to help us recognise them?

    Maybe something like this?

    I was talking to a Romanian seeking safe refuge in Liverpool only last week. He said “My daughter she has been raped, my mother has been attacked, my son has been beaten…

    and we only got off the X2 bus from Manchester 20 mins ago!”

    My grandfather was Romanian. Came here between the wars after deciding that fighting for the Austro-Hungarian empire was not for him.

    He was jewish, so had he stayed, he would not have fared well. I imagine all his (my) relatives were wiped out by some of the grandparents of the people coming over now.

    in other anecdotal evidence I was in Vancouver and the bus station was full of British ski and snowboard bums heading out to work for terrible wages in the ski resorts of Canada, therefore Canada is overrun with British Ski/Board Bums

    I ‘m sure the Daily Mail did, and it’s blood pressure rose accordingly. I felt sorry for the poor bastards! Just trying to make a living. And had clearly been stitched up like kippers, promised the world, then delivered into virtual slavery, and poverty by gang masters!

    who? the daily mail journos?

    The first lot were not quite so pleasant though! Left a massive pile of shit in the street to the extant that the resident scummers (who keep a sofa outside their house for crackheads/alcoholics to sit on) even got annoyed!

    Really felt for the second lot though, genuinely sounded like they’d been stitched up by who ever brought them over.

    Good work all, nice thread and some good humour
    I have no puns but I commend the lack of engagement with the OP
