Groping isn’t OK. in Poland


Neo-fascist British National Party get confused…

Under the headline Groping’s okay is Poland – apparently!, the BNP’s web site runs a story that opens like this:

A case that came up before Weymouth magistrates last week may well illustrate the extent to which we Brits, some say, are being “taken for a ride” by some migrants to our country.

Our Dorset correspondent tells us that the above court was told by a Polish defendant – or rather his taxpayer funded interpreter – that groping women is an acceptable pastime in Poland!

Well that appears to be the defence put forward by one Thomasz Stepniowski. Mr. Stepniowski is charged with four offences, which the local media have explained relates to how ”the women he groped included a teenager aged 15 and a woman in her mid-40s. He fondled the breasts of three of them and pinched another on the bottom.”
Perhaps even more surprising is the media assertion that Mr. Stepniowski’s claim of - groping is acceptable behaviour in Poland - is shared by the female Polish interpreter present in court. This lady, we are informed, is alleged to have: “volunteered the view that she was "outraged" such a matter could be brought to court and that she had agreed that such behaviour would be acceptable in Poland.”
But what is absolutely amazing is that sentencing has been reportedly postponed until later this month - when a witness is to be called who will apparently tell the court ”about Polish attitudes to such behaviour”.

I can’t remember reading such a load of rubbish in a very long time.

For the information of the fascist who wrote this gobshite, groping is definitely NOT okay in Poland. In fact it occurs much less frequently than on British public transport, where unilateral ‘frottage’ is quite a common occurrence on crowded tube trains, etc. The Polish guy in question is delusional, of course. As to the witness who agreed with him that groping was OK in Poland...unbelievable!

But you can see how these cases are being used by nasty little parties like the BNP to stir up trouble.

Another thing I find amazing is that I found this story on Google News… Web sites by dirty little fascists should not be counted as ‘news’. Period.

This is a case where the defendant had absolutely no credible defense. One had to be offered and thus we have this ridiculous claim to Polish custom. Mr. Stepniowski and interpreter are very creative, indeed. Hopefully, he will have abundant time and solitude after the trial to consider the error of his ways.

But can you see the nasty little campaign by the BNP? There is this low level campaign among these sirt of groups against Poles in the British media. The BNP are playing on that. But most Brits actually like POles. So I think its effects will be marginal. Hopefully. Everyone is too preoccupied with Muslims...

this guy was just "trying it on " in all senses of the word,this type of behaviour is not accepted anywhere in the civilised world ,he probably thought it was worth a try and thought he might just get off with the charge because its such a ridiculous statement the police in poland would rightly have you banged up in the local nick for this type of behaviour

Your point is taken, beatroot. The BNP hits another new low with use of this sort of culture defamation.

Have you read the Daily Hate Mail recently? I don't think a day goes by without the press reporting some ridiculous xenophobic lie about Poles in Britain. The bnp are bad, certainly, that's to be expected, but just as bad is the media which are still seen by many as being "respectable" and accurate.

Hi Aleks. I promise to take a daily digest of Hate Mail. I have tried to track the drivle that has been appearing in the Daily Mail, Sunday Times...but also the Guardian, Indie...it's everywhere.

It would be not so much acceptable pastime in Poland, but noone would take anyone to the court for it! just a quick slap in the face would do! you Brits are so pathetic with that inclination to let the courts solve your disputes for you. it just reminds me of the recent black jelly babies case.. laughable!
