I doubt the author worked at the lowest rungs of the gig economy. She does not seem to have contacted the Uber workers themselves. She ‘thinks’ she can write on behalf of everyone else without actually trying to do this kind of job herself or without gathering opinions from Uber employees.

When I came to London in 2016 I needed a job quickly. I came because I was fired from a university in Poland where I was an associate professor of physics. My pianist wife was fired from her job at the state school of music. Our family has been targeted for political reasons for a very long time. We were in debt and at high risk of losing our flat in Poland, on which we still pay mortgage.

Although I do have high qualifications and a PhD from an American university, nobody was waiting for me at the Victoria bus terminal, where I arrived one June morning. There was no welcome committee and no red carpet. Even the room I reserved before leaving Poland was suddenly not available.

In my first job I was cleaning restaurants at night. I was employed by a Belgian restaurant chain with significant presence in central London. My basic rights were violated. I was not paid for transport between restaurants and for the time spent moving from one location to another. I read the law regulating workers pay in these circumstances and it was clear the company violated the law. No one, however, was willing to listen. My Lithuanian partner and I were eventually terminated after 99 nights of working continuously without a time off. We were offered a night off once a week or so, but not a week off after several weeks of continuous work. Our proposal made more sense because it would give us time to travel and visit family. One night off a week would only disrupt our body clock without providing any benefit. We received some of the money owed several months later after I sent an email detailing the amounts the company owed us and tbe basis of our calculation.

The overall experience was humiliating.

In my next job I was a self-employed leaflet distributor. Theoretically, I was a subcontractor to a leaflet distribution company. However in reality we were employees. Each day we had to show up at a specific location somewhere in London at a specific time and we had nothing to say about it. You either accepted it or you didn’t get the job. Starting time was not negotiable even if you were to appear on the outskirts of London at, say, 6 a.m. because the job was far outside London and the supervisor was not willing to delay starting time. It takes couple of hours to get through London in those circumstances. We worked under strict supervision. Each shift supervisor was also self-employed. He/she was telling us what the company wanted from us. Ridiculous, isn’t it? Although he or she was representing the company, he/she was not a company employee.

I was forced to come to work in a sporting outfit although it was not making me work any better or faster. It was actually less convenient. At some point we were filmed jogging while delivering leaflets. I did not express my consent to be filmed. This was apparently done to impress some customers. Both being filmed and forced to jog was humiliating. There was not much choice, however. Expressing a critical view resulted in being summoned to the office in west London, where they made you wait for half an hour before being reprimanded. To show you how insignificant you are. Totally humiliating and a huge waste of time.

The company wanted to project the image of people doing the job for fun and making some money at the same time. Their logo pictured a jogger. They were viewed very positively during the company predentation in a tv program a few years back. The reality is different.

Then there was bullying and other inconveniences. So I was sometimes bullied on behalf of the company by another self-employed contractor. Ridiculous. There were also slave-like situations, when we were sitting in a car somewhere outside London and nobody could say how long the situation would last. This was a resulf of someone’s poor planning and we were not paid for the time spent waiting.

The company did nothing to help you with your physiological needs. In this job you walk continuously for 6-8 hours. What if you have a physiological need? It is your problem. You start and finish by a predetermined time. Toilet breaks are not part of the schedule and it is entirely up to you how you solve the problem.

How many jobs of this kind has the article’s author done herself?

Polska Wikipedia i wywiad komunistyczny

Komentarz do artykułu Wikipedia has transformed knowledge – so why is it still looked down on?, Wikipedia dokonała transformacji wiedzy – dlaczego zatem wciąż patrzy się na nią z góry?, Simon Ings, The Telegraph, 10 stycznia 2021. Wersja angielska: Polish Wikipedia and Communist intelligence.


Lech S Borkowski comment The Telegraph 10 January 2021
Lech S Borkowski, komentarz w The Telegraph 10 stycznia 2021

Autor artykułu reprezentuje entuzjastyczne podejście do Wikipedii.

Cytat z artykułu:

Dariusz Jemielniak (autor pierwszej etnografii Wikipedii, Common Knowledge?, w 2014 r.) podkreśla stronę zabawową całego przedsięwzięcia. To chyba jedyny powód, dla którego naukowcy jej unikają. “Kiedy jesteś żołnierzem, niekoniecznie spędzasz wolny czas grając w paintball z kolegami.”

Na swojej stronie internetowej Jemielniak z dumą cytuje słowa pochwały, które otrzymał od Zygmunta Baumana, zmarłego socjologa, byłego oficera politycznego (politruka) w armii komunistycznej i członka Polskiej Partii Komunistycznej i komunistycznego wywiadu wojskowego. Bauman sam używał tekstów Wikipedii, nie podając źródła, co zostało opisane w artykule “Problematic elements…”, PW Walsh i D Lehmann (2015). W tym kontekście porównanie naukowców do żołnierzy nie jest takie dziwne.

Pewnego dnia w 2015 roku ktoś, kogo nie znałem, przysłał mi e-mail z informacją, że właśnie powstała strona Wikipedii z moim imieniem i nazwiskiem. Wyraziłem sprzeciw. Pomimo to strona została utworzona. Było to 28 października 2015 roku. Następnego dnia otrzymałem pismo kończące moje zatrudnienie na Wydziale Fizyki Uniwersytetu Adama Mickiewicza w Poznaniu.

Jak się okazało, strony Wikipedii wszystkich tzw. samodzielnych pracowników naukowych na Wydziale Fizyki zostały utworzone w tym samym czasie. Było to niezwykłe z co najmniej kilku powodów. Informacje zamieszczone na tych stronach były trywialne i na ogół kopiowały to, co może pojawić się na stronach wydziałów akademickich. Było również jasne, że niektóre zdania użyte w opisach zostały wybrane nie w celu przedstawienia osoby, ale dla podkreślenia, że jest “jedną z wielu”.

Sprawdziłem, że inne wydziały uniwersyteckie i wydziały fizyki innych uczelni w Polsce nie zostały potraktowane w ten sposób. Coś znaczącego wydarzyło się zatem tego dnia w polskiej Wikipedii. Kiedy w 2019 roku poinformowałem o tym osobę z zarządu Wikipedii, zostało to zignorowane.

Moja osoba i fakt, że zostałem zwolniony z Wydziału Fizyki Uniwersytetu Adama Mickiewicza, były jedynymi powodami utworzenia prawie stu stron Wikipedii dla osób z Wydziału Fizyki.

Niedługo potem moja żona pianistka została zwolniona z pracy nauczyciela fortepianu w Państwowej Szkole Muzycznej w Zielonej Górze na podstawie fałszywego dokumentu sfabrykowanego przez państwową służbę medycyny pracy. Władze od lat prowadzą intensywną kampanię nękania i nękania naszej rodziny. Teraz postanowiły wyeliminować nas z pracy.

Trzeba pamiętać, że strony Wikipedii znajdują się wysoko w wynikach wyszukiwań internetowych. Gdyby ktoś gdzieś szukał Lecha Borkowskiego fizyka, to z pewnością wyszukiwanie to zostałoby odnotowane przez odpowiednie oprogramowanie wyszukiwarki. I rzeczywiście, jakiś czas później mogłem zaobserwować, jak rosły statystyki oglądalności strony Wikipedii z moim nazwiskiem, kiedy tylko byłem bardziej aktywny w kontaktach z innymi ludźmi. Wikipedia służy po prostu jako gigantyczne urządzenie do prowadzenia nasłuchu. Gromadzone przez nią informacje umożliwiają identyfikację osób poszukujących określonych słów kluczowych i miejsc, w których te osoby się znajdują.

Polska Wikipedia nie ma nic wspólnego ze swoim angielskim odpowiednikiem, pomimo wspólnej nazwy. Jest ona używana do celów sprzecznych z głoszonymi oficjalnie. Jest to medium społeczne i doskonałe narzędzie sprawowania władzy. Kontrola informacji i opowiadania historii (w sensie ogólnym) należą do najbardziej podstawowych instrumentów władzy. Osoby kontrolujące polską Wikipedię są dobrze zorganizowane. Istnieje duże podobieństwo do działań komunistycznego wywiadu, zarówno w kraju, jak i poza nim.

To nie przypadek, że wojskowy komunistyczny oficer polityczny i wywiadowczy Bauman pochwalił entuzjastyczną książkę Jemielniaka o Wikipedii. To również nie przypadek, że (1) zostałem zwolniony z Uniwersytetu, (2) Strona Wikipedii została stworzona w celu kontroli i sabotowania mojej narracji. Po II wojnie światowej moi rodzice byli w komunistycznych obozach koncentracyjnych, gdzie zostali wysłani przez takich jak Bauman.

Podkreślam jeszcze raz, że mocno sprzeciwiam się istnieniu strony Wikipedii z moim nazwiskiem.

Production of fake narratives

Comment on the article We must support the citizens of Belarus during this brutal state crackdown by Renatas Norkus, Arkady Rzegocki, and Dr Jonathan Eyal in The Sunday Telegraph 7 February 2021.


Lech S Borkowski comment in The Sunday Telegraph 8 February 2021

Lech S Borkowski, comment in The Sunday Telegraph 8 February 2021

“Just like Poland, whose solidarity movement four decades ago sparked a series of revolutions ending Soviet rule in Central and Eastern Europe and paved the way for a peaceful transition to democracy in the region at the end of the 1980s”

This is a false statement and a key element of recent mythology. The Solidarity movement was organised by the Communist regime in order to create excuse for moving to the next stage of dictatorship, dictatorship ‘below-the-line’. In this next phase, the repressive acts are more carefully hidden and masked. There is, however, a clear evidence of continued abuse, if you know where to look.

Leading members of the Polish ‘opposition’ came from within the regime itself.

The West failed disastrously to decode even the most basic elements of this comedy.

The Polish state continues to use Communist methods and violate human rights. In 2015, the state authorities issued a fake statement that my pianist wife Małgorzata Głuchowska cannot continue as a piano teacher in a state school of music and must be fired. The documents fabricated by the Regional Centre for Occupational Medicine in Zielona Góra in what is now western Poland, contain a a Soviet-style statement by a psychologist accusing my wife of unspecified delusions. These are Communist methods which the West chooses not to see and not to report. The sound recordings of two conversations with the psychologist, to which my wife was subjected under the threat of losing her job, are available on Youtube. The top Polish authorities received detailed information about our case, but chose to protect the perpetrators.

Our family is targeted because my parents were prisoners of Communist concentration camps in northern Russia and I have always supported the hard choices they made. I was expelled from the Physics Dept. of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan in 2015 after two decades of harassment, bullying, and mistreatment. I have a PhD from an American university. You can read more here: https://lsborkowski.com/pol/

Lies, falsifications, and production of fake narratives, the entire mythology of a heroic ‘opposition’ are well rehearsed in Eastern Europe. There was no transition to honesty and authenticity. People are so used to lies and falsifications in everyday life that violating the laws does not bother anyone.

Similar comedy is being played in Belarus now. Those coming on the streets in Belarus fulfil regime’s wish.

The current article is also subordinated to the Communist/Russian narrative, from which the occupation of Eastern Poland by the Soviet Union since 1939 and the subsequent genocidal treatment of the Polish population and anyone resisting Communism is absent.

Belarus known today is a Communist creation. It has nothing to do with the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The ambassadors of Lithuania and Poland commit an act of historical forgery here.

My parents lived in Eastern Poland, which was later divided into Ukrainian, Belarussian and Lithuanian Soviet ‘Republics’. They were stripped of their Polish citizenship as a result of the illegal Yalta deal, conducted behind the back of the Polish government. Unfortunately, the governments of Great Britain and United States participated in this act, against the will of the people, although they had neither the moral nor legal right to do so.

Zagubieni zachodni obserwatorzy Europy Wschodniej

Zachodni obserwatorzy całkowicie stracili orientację w Europie Wschodniej. Na przykład w Polsce klasa rządząca pozostała dokładnie taka sama jak przed 1990 rokiem. Rzekomi “nacjonaliści” jako siła polityczna to fabrykacja. Tkanka polskiego społeczeństwa sprzed II wojny światowej została nieodwracalnie zniszczona. Mamy teraz komunistyczną klasę rządzącą uprawiającą politykę wirtualną. Polityka w Polsce jest całkowicie sfałszowana.

Polityka i całe życie publiczne w Polsce nie wróciły do autentyczności. To, co postrzegano jako przemiany demokratyczne, było jedynie spektaklem teatralną. Polska jest wyewoluowanym reżimem komunistycznym, gdzie zależnie od okoliczności wytwarzane są różne fałszywe siły polityczne.

Kościół katolicki został w pełni podporządkowany kontroli komunistycznej w pierwszych latach po II wojnie światowej. Polski papież Jan Paweł II był delegatem komunistów w Watykanie. Wmówiono wam wiele bajek.

Po drugiej wojnie światowej moi rodzice byli wieloletnimi więźniami komunistycznych obozów koncentracyjnych w północnej Rosji. Mój ojciec zdezerterował z komunistycznej armii w 1945 roku, zanim doszło do złożenia przysięgi. Sowieccy komuniści zabijali członków polskiego ruchu oporu z czasu II wojny światowej.

Moja matka była więziona w obozach od 1949 do 1956 r. za stawianie oporu komunistycznej okupacji wschodniej Polski i pomoc polskiemu ruchowi oporu. Jej brat [Klemens Ostrowski] był bardzo okrutnie torturowany.

Jestem bardzo dumny z moich rodziców.

Upadek komunizmu w Polsce był fałszywy. To była sztuka teatralna wystawiona w celu ogłupienia ludzi takich jak wy.

Western observers completely lost the plot in Eastern Europe. In Poland, for example, the ruling class remained exactly the same as before 1990. The alleged ‘nationalists’ as a political force are a fabrication. The pre-WWII fabric of the Polish society has been irrevocably destroyed. What you have got, is Communist ruling class doing virtual politics. Politics is completely fake in Poland.

Politics and the entire public life in Poland has not returned to authenticity. What you took for the democratic transition was merely a theatre play. Poland is an evolved Communist regime, where different fake political forces are manufactured, depending on circumstances.

The Catholic church got firmly under Communist control in the first years after WWII. The Polish pope John Paul II was a Communist delegate in the Vatican. You have been told lots of fairy tales.

My parents were long time prisoners of Communist concentration camps in northern Russia post-WWII. My father deserted from the Communist army in 1945 before the oath was taken. The Soviet Communists were killing members of the Polish WWII resistance.

My mother was imprisoned in the camps from 1949 to 1956 for resisting the Communist occupation of Eastern Poland and helping the Polish resistance. Her brother was very cruelly tortured.

I am very proud of my parents.

The fall of Communism in Poland was fake. It was a theatre play to fool people like you.

Dzerzhinsky Avenue

Comment on the article Alexei Navalny jailed for three years as police crack down on fresh protests in Moscow by Natalia Vasilyeva in The Telegraph, 3 February 2021.


Lech S Borkowski comment in The Telegraph 3 February 2021
Lech S Borkowski, comment in The Telegraph 3 February 2021

Navalny is one of many Russia’s state-run projects. He is clearly a member of the Russian privileged class. This spectacle is a creation of political technologists. Engaging in it is a waste time. They don’t teach Communist techniques of provocation and narrative control at UK universities, do they?

I have not seen any mention of the Communist genocide in this context. Corruption is a problem but genocide isn’t? I haven’t noticed anyone protesting against town names such as Dzerzhinsk or street names such Dzerzhinsky Street or Dzerzhinsky Prospekt.

Corruption is a nonessential criticism in Russia. It is a useful diversion.

What about those millions murdered, expelled and terrorised? Communist genocidal policies are continued in Eastern Europe, including EU and NATO members.

I have an obligation to point this out as a son of Polish survivors of Communist concentration camps in northern Russia.

You have been told the wrong story

Comment on the editorial article A reckoning is coming for Vladimir Putin in The Telegraph, 1 February 2021.


Lech S Borkowski comment in The Telegraph 1 February 2021
Lech S Borkowski, comment in The Telegraph 1 February 2021

It isn’t about the man in the Kremlin either. Russians and other East Europeans successfully trained West Europeans to follow the fake narrative. It is as if Communism has never existed and from extremes of collectivism Russia, Belarus, Poland moved into extremes of a one man rule (Kaczynski in Poland ruling allegedly from the back seat). This is nonsense of course.

These protests are staged. You just don’t understand. You have been told the wrong story.

Lech S Borkowski, second comment in The Telegraph 1 February 2021

Around 3:30 pm I posted a comment which was removed. I am not sure on what grounds? I am posting it again minus a web link.

I find it quite symbolic that opinion expressed by a son of survivors of Soviet Communist concentration camps is eliminated. My short text above is not a casual remark. It is based on experience and long-term analysis of public narratives in Eastern Europe. I doubt there is anyone with similar family connections among The Telegraph staff and experience similar to mine.

Uniformity of opinion and interpretation is not necessarily a sign of correctness.

Promoting corruption as the main issue in Russia has obvious benefits to the ruling class and Russia in general. It is a safe subject and a universal problem encountered in varying proportions around the world. Communist political technologists understood long time ago that it is far better to engineer an issue rather than wait until one appears spontaneously and grows out of control. Anti-corruption campaign is a nonessential criticism. Russia’s power structures and loyalties are built on Communist foundations and terror. The issue of corruption, whether real or imagined, is a useful diversion. Had Navalny been an independent person, he would be eliminated very early on and you would never have heard about him. The personnel and appropriate techniques can be deployed at any time, without resorting to poison. Instead, the cycles of arrest-release-rearrest are carried out by the Russian state mainly to stimulate interest in the spectacle.

“a wonderful, freewheeling, ultra-mobile 30-year affair that started with the downfall of communism in 1989 has come to a screeching end.”

Communism has not collapsed. Being on the receiving end of the stick, I know this first-hand. You have seriously underestimated the Communists and their creativity in pushing the fake narrative. EU is their paradise. Communist party members and their subordinates in the European Parliament and European Commission. Communist methods deployed on the ground.

Fake dissidents

Navalny is Russia’s state-run project. Anti-corruption campaigns belong to the category of non-essential criticism. They do not reveal anything substantial. This is Russia’s way of saying ‘we are just like you, comrades, we just have more of it’.

Russia produces fake dissidents. This is their way to control the narrative. Western correspondents get ready-to-print stories, endless polit-soap operas leading nowhere.

Similar methods are used elsewhere in the Eastern block, including current EU and NATO members.

Polish Wikipedia and Communist intelligence

Comment on the article Wikipedia has transformed knowledge – so why is it still looked down on? by Simon Ings in The Telegraph, 10 January 2021. English version: Polska Wikipedia i wywiad komunistyczny.


Lech S Borkowski comment The Telegraph 10 January 2021
Lech S Borkowski, comment in The Telegraph 10 January 2021

10 Jan 2021 7:01PM

The article’s author represents an enthusiastic approach to Wikipedia.

Quote from the article:

Dariusz Jemielniak (author of the first ethnography of Wikipedia, Common Knowledge?, in 2014) stresses the playfulness of the whole enterprise. Why else, he asks, would academics avoid it? “When you are a soldier, you do not necessarily spend your free time playing paintball with friends.”

On his webpage, Jemielniak proudly quotes words of praise he received from Zygmunt Bauman, the late sociologist, former political officer (politruk) in the Communist army and member of the Polish Communist party and Communist military intelligence. Bauman himself used Wikipedia texts without providing attribution, see “Problematic elements…” by PW Walsh and D Lehmann (2015). In this context, the comparison of academics to soldiers does not seem out of place.

One day in 2015, someone I didn’t know sent me an email with information that a Wikipedia page in Polish with my name was just created. I replied with an objection. The page was created despite my disapproval. It was 28 October 2015. I was a faculty member at the Department of Physics of the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland. The next day, I received letter terminating my employment.

As it turned out, Wikipedia pages of all the faculty in the Department of Physics were created at the same time. This was most unusual for at least couple of reasons. The information on those pages was of the most trivial type and mostly reproduced information bits usually appearing on academic departmental pages. It was also clear that some of the sentences used in personal descriptions were selected not as a way of describing each person but rather as a way as emphasizing the person as ‘one of many’.

I verified that other University departments and physics departments of other universities in Poland have not received this kind of treatment. So, something significant happened that day in the Polish Wikipedia. When I let someone from the Wikipedia board know about it in 2019, he shrugged it off.

My person and the fact that I was being fired from the faculty of the Department of Physics of the Adam Mickiewicz University were the only reasons for creating the nearly hundred personal Wikipedia pages.

Shortly afterwards, my pianist wife was fired from her job of a piano teacher in the State School of Music in Zielona Góra in Poland, on the basis of a fake document fabricated by the state service of occupational medicine. The authorities have been carrying out an intense bullying and harassment campaign against our family for years. Now they decided to eliminate us from our jobs.

One needs to keep in mind that Wikipedia pages come near the top of Internet searches. If someone somewhere was looking for Lech Borkowski the physicist, it would certainly be picked up by the snippets of code serving the search engines. And indeed, some time later, I could observe how the viewing numbers of the Wikipedia containing my name page rose, whenever I was more active in contacting other people. Wikipedia simply serves as a giant listening device. The information it collects enables identification of people and places looking for certain keywords.

The Polish Wikipedia has nothing to do with its English language counterpart, despite sharing the name. It is used for purposes contrary to those officially proclaimed. It is a social medium and a perfect tool for the exercise of power. Control of information and story telling (in general sense) are among the most basic instruments of power. The individuals controlling Polish Wikipedia are well organised. There is a great degree of similarity with actions of Communist intelligence, both inside and outside the country.

It is no accident that the military Communist political and intelligence officer Bauman praised Jemielniak’s enthusiastic book on Wikipedia. It is also no accident that (1) I was fired from the University (2) Wikipedia page was created to control my narrative. After WWII, my parents were in Communist concentration camps, where they were sent by the likes of Bauman.

And let me emphasize once again that I strongly oppose having a Wikipedia page with my name on it.
