Re: Hello from London

oh, I am sorry, I didn't know that. I might move very soon to Switzerland, so i just thought that I will do some research online beforehand.

You can delete my account if you want, sorry again - I didn't know.

Best regards

Bye

Re: Hello from London

Polish plumbers are doing such a good job here in London that I'm sure they'll soon be able to afford to come and live in Switzerland.
The Polish plumber, who sorted out a problem at my flat here in London, turned up exactly when he said he would, did a very good job, didn't charge the earth, and left the place clean and tidy.
I've had some very mixed results with local plumbers and, for the most part, they charge far too much - especially the local P******o Plumbers!
Welcome Polish Plumber. (send me a personal message when you arrive in Switzerland)

If there's a chance you could do some plumbing work in London SW10, would you send me a personal message.
I'm in London at the moment.

Typical. Bloody foreigners. Soon there will be no jobs left for Brits. I bet they're married too and have 15 kids. How will that affect house prices (con't p. 94 of every edition of the Daily Mail)

There's an amusing cartoon on the back page of today's Sunday Times News Review.
It shows a couple of blokes passing a placard which reads '370,000 migrants on the dole'.
One bloke says to the other 'bloody foreigners, coming over here and not taking our jobs!'
