The British generally don’t like Polish immigrants, because of the effect that low wage workers have on the economy.
But at least the Poles have some kind of loyalty to the ancient traditions of Europe, which they’re not willing to sacrifice in the name of a virus hoax.
Police shut down a Good Friday service at a Polish church in south London for breaching coronavirus rules and threatened worshippers with a £200 fine each.
Footage captured officers interrupting a Liturgy of the Lord’s Passion service at Christ the King Polish church in Balham at around 6pm on Friday.
One police officer was filmed telling parishioners that the gathering was “unfortunately unlawful under the coronavirus regulations”.
He added: “You are not allowed to meet inside with this many people under law.”
“At this moment in time you need to go home. Failure to comply with this direction to leave and go to your home address, ultimately could lead you to be fined £200 or, if you fail to give your details, to you being arrested.
“It’s Good Friday and I appreciate you would like to worship, but it is unlawful,” he said.
The church has criticised the police for interrupting the service, saying it believes the officers “brutally exceeded their powers by issuing their warrant for no good reason” because “all government requirements were met”.
They’re not allowed to meet inside with that many people? But they’re all consenting adults who agree to risk contagion. Their body, their choice.
“It’s Good Friday and I appreciate you would like to worship, but it is unlawful,”
People can agree to damage the anus and spread literally every disease through friction in sadomasochistic sexual practices but cannot agree to risk getting a flu and get together for Good Friday?
Could it be that the government wants people to do one thing and not the other?
