IMO the article can be summed up as
>You don't know yer born, lad.
When in fact, I do. I grew up in communist Poland, I know what hunger and actual propaganda look like and this reads like the shit my Primary School teachers used to chat bollocks about. We got told people in Germany were poor and had no food and that, actually, we were quite well off in comparison because we had so much potatoes. My Dad managed to get out to Sweden to work, which was allowed in the 90s to avoid the draft, and he taught us it was bollocks.
Beware the BBC, lads. They're not the bastion of impartiality of old. It's misleading shit like this, I feel, that makes people want us out, as we recognise it for what it is and it gets their backs up. I'm a British citizen now, I have two passports, but if you see us heading back to shitholes like Lublin rather than tough it out, you're less appealing than a post-communist block country with endemic corruption in society.
