A Polish friend of mine, who has been here for over 35 years lets her flat in Hammersmith be an open house for Polish friends visiting the UK. Once she had a group of 2 women and one man. Day after they arrived, the 2 birds went off sightseeing and the bloke stayed at home slugging vodka. Same the second day, when it was apparent that on the third day the same thing was going to happen, Elka says to the bloke Fer Christs sake Jerzy, you´ve never been to England before, go out and do something, go and see Big Ben´To which came the reply ´Why? Does he drink?
