A new phenomenon has surfaced in Poland - Britishness. With recession-hit Poles returning to their homeland in droves, many of them find life without Britishness hard to adjust to.
So they've taken a piece of old Blighty with them. In their hearts!

Sales of tea in Polish cities have also gone off the scale, and landscape gardening firms report order books bulging with contracts to construct croquet lawns outside communist era apartment blocks. Indeed, the Poles have gone absolutely bonkers for all things British.
A DTI spokesman told us that if demand for British goods increased any more, then we'd have to lure the Poles back over here to man the factories to meet demand.
