Robert (and Peter, below) are bus drivers who came to England from Poland around 6 years ago to find more lucrative work… [-40]

…Peter (and Robert, above) discussed how exchange rates had changed over the years and that some Poles moved back as a consequence. He also compared the diversity of a city like Birmingham and the potential for tension between groups to a much more uniform community such as his in Poland. [-40]
