In the face of several forthright demonstrations of legitimate concern over Poles in Britain, the Polish president has demonstrated a rather charming strain of black humour. Firstly, and apparently with a straight face, he asked Amber Rudd and the Imperial Haystack to do something about it. The response can well be imagined: the Haystack no doubt blathered something about the Prevent programme only applying to darkies, while Rudd probably responded with a pledge not to let British fracking firms undermine the Wawelska Cathedral. Evidently well aware of how seriously to take these two, the president then took the joke further by writing to the heads of the Anglican and Roman Catholic churches in Britain, who will no doubt be more than happy to bring their moral authority to bear by wringing their hands a little harder. It is as yet unclear whether the Polish president has taken up the matter with a popular singer, the Downing Street cat or Ed Balls.
