In the UK are more babies being born to polish mothers than to any other migrant group in the United Kingdom. Over a longer period of 10 years, the numbers have doubled and this is an extraordinary increase since the last decade.
Polish people keep coming to the UK as it is seen as a popular and successful move for many Poles. This continues a long tradition and serves to keep on building the strong ties between the British and Poles in UK. Statistics by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Poland have highlighted this trend. Seventeen million Polish people that have emigrated from Poland to stay for a time or to live indefinitely in the United Kingdom and worldwide. The Polish community despite a slow down for a short period continues to expand. Nearly 21 thousand Polish children were born last year in England and Wales alone – an average of 57 a day, official called ” baby boom ” – reports daily polish news.
Too many Polish children in United Kingdom
Since 2008, about 75,000 Polish children have been born in Britain, according to data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), and during that time, the figure has increased by at least one thousand each year. This number could also be much higher as it only takes into account babies born in state hospitals.
The predictable chairman of Migration Watch, Sir Andrew Green commented : ” there must be concern that the numbers will grow even more rapidly now that eastern Europeans have full access to the welfare state in Britain.”
Mick Brookes, general secretary of the NAHT said, that British in the United Kingdom are feeling among some of their members that this is out of control and unpredictable. She said, some schools just do not know how many migrant children they will have to admit.
Polish migrants in UK
Even the majority of Poles coming to Britain (and to Ireland) make the journey to work, and to work hard, not just to have full access to the welfare state. But there are not any negative results of polish migration to the United Kingdom. Patriotism is a deep Polish characteristic, and most people of Polish family origin born in Britain will bring that patriotic sense of commitment and allegiance to the UK, as well as cherishing a traditional link with Poland.
Polish migrants, in the main, bring added value to the host community and if the whingers are complaining now about the costs in education and family support, they should look to the future when it is Britain that will feel the benefit of a stable community with Polish links.
