Comeback to important issues

Written by: in: Politics

When in 2010 we decided that one of our main directions of action and stimulation to public discussion in Liberte! should be liberally understood social policy, our political class was busy with discussing issues completely not connected with people’s life. Smolensk, rhetoric of deterring Law and Justice Party, Tusk’s small steps (a real stagnation), changes […]

Poland won EURO 2012. And Donald Tusk scored the winning goal.

Poland won EURO 2012. And Donald Tusk scored the winning goal.

Written by: in: Society

On the opening day of Euro 2012 former PM Włodzimierz Cimoszewicz portended that public mood will depend on Polish football team’s results in the championship, while on Tuesday Leszek Miller, in his way, scoffed at Tusk that he needs Polish football players’ victory more than Gierek did. Both gentleman are wrong, because footballers’ results had […]

What do we really know about Bombay?

Obama’s serious blunder might have shown a lack of professionalism in the administration of the White House. Certainly, though, it also confirmed what we already know about Poland. We shouldn’t be worried about Obama’s words hurting our national pride. The bigger problem is the fact that the blunder made by Barack Obama reflects poorly on […]

Jarosław the goal scorer

Jarosław the goal scorer

Written by: in: Politics

A move made by Jarosław Kaczyński in the morning on May 3 – supporting the idea of boycotting Euro 2012 sport events in Ukraine was not an own goal at all but a classic hat-trick. The ball, slowly and aimlessly played by Western European politicians, landed at former Prime Minister’s feet. For the first time […]

Offside!

Offside!

Written by: in: Politics

The Prime Minister said that it was an own goal. This is how he described Jaroslaw’s Kaczynski’s calling for boycotting the Ukrainian part of Euro 2012. photo: Sean MacEntee The Prime Minister has an incomparably greater knowledge of the principles of “kicking the ball” than the chairman of the Law and Justice party does. Yet […]

Youth! It’s about time to wake up.

Polish political and social lives are full of preposterous situations. For the first four years of his term of office, Donald Tusk did practically nothing (practically, for it has to be mentioned that he had abolished conscription and some of the retirement benefits) for the young generation. Nevertheless, he still maintained a large support of […]

Hollande apologises to the plumbers

Written by: in: Politics

Although François Hollande, for  a few weeks, has been soliciting the support of European leaders or governments with perseverance, the doors of the main political offices remain closed to him. The same could have happened in Warsaw if it had not been  for the Polish president Bronislaw Komorowski. The latter met the French presidential candidate […]

Russia has become less influential

Russia has become less influential

Written by: in: Politics

Elections in Russia have not lead to any serious consequences. Instead of any  surprise, there is disappointment and a feeling that the political situation in the country is rather immutable. One should also consider future relations between Poland and Russia. They may never improve although the current Polish government has already ensured that the relations […]

Alice’s Factor

Written by: in: Politics

Commentators (even the serious ones that I have respected for many years) attribute features of a statesman to Polish PM Donald Tusk, basing on his ability to keep the high position in the polls and high probability of keeping the power for another term by Platforma Obywatelska (PO).

Polish foreign policy to be reviewed

Polish foreign policy to be reviewed

Written by: in: Politics

It should be considered if the government’s policy is efficient in realizing Polish interests in the European Union. It is a truism to state that the policy of the Civic Platform is more efficient than the one of the Law and Justice. Changes in the international policy and economic situation cause however that the policy […]
