I have been following some of his reaction to what is happening in Poland.

he is a member of PO party, a former owner of Ambra - a winery in South Poland.

Is he for real or he is just stirring ????

I don't know. My sister knows him and he was a good person to do bussiness with but he makes outrageous statements, which are true most of the time. He offends a lot of people and I am wondering if he is genuine or he is looking for cheap fame.

Maybe he is what Poland needs.

I guess I'm one of few who support him. He's saying what most of Poles are thinking.. He don't like the president and PiS party, and he's not afraid to call them idiots. It's because he's rich and not afraid of confrontation.

Personaly he's inteligent guy, well educated, experienced.. It's not a Lepper's level.

But I agree that sometimes he's going too far.....

I know. My family members used to deal with him.

I think his biggest problem is that the form of his public appearances often overshadows their content - as in the incident where he appeared with a rubber penis and a gun in his hands to protest alleged sexual abuse and violence at a police station. Today hardly anyone recalls what the whole thing was about, but everyone recalls seeing Palikot waving a dildo and a gun around.

Palikot
cyg, I like your papers story about him protesting against the "absurdity of Poland's building regulations" where he said that he will break the law in order to paint his building and do it himself.

Because under Polish law you need a permit to do this which costs PLN 7,700, but if he breaks the law the fine will only be PLN 5,000, so he will be PLN 2,700 better off lol.

a former owner of Ambra - a winery in South Poland.

I thought he was still the owner, and it's not a winery, it is a vodka distillery factory near Lublin.

I think he would make great career if he was born in the Netherlands or any other more liberal country.. ;D

This one I am definitely correct on as I buy spiritus from it and it's not far from my home. hic hic :)

I guess we are both right sort of :), as he used to make wines, but now he makes vodka with the company Polmos Lublin.

Polmos, they do Żubrówka too. Dynamic enterprise

Polmos was actually a state owned company until the 1990s, made up of many branches all over Poland, and Polmos Lublin was just one of those branches that was privatised in the 90s.

I believe that Żubrówka and Absolwent vodka is made by Polmos Białystok, I know that Palikot has shares in the company, but I am not sure if he is the sole owner.

He also acquired a license to turn his factory in Lublin into a biofuel refinery, but that was a couple of years ago and nothing has been heard about it since.

Then he has done the right thing since the UK have realised that they have made massive mistakes in changing crops over for biofuels....more proffit in "real crops"

sorry to go off topic :)

Biofuels are ok if they are managed correctly and do not replace a crop or destroy the natural habitat as they have done in Brazil and Indonesia.

They are getting a bad press at the moment because of these examples; however, my wife has been doing research into Miscanthus (elephant grass) for the last five years at the National Research Institute of Soil Science and Plant Cultivation, Puławy, and it has huge potential in cleaning polluted areas.

Miscanthus actually takes in the pollutants and turns the soil into soil that is suitable for farming again, then this products can be burnt as Biofuel with the pollutants caught in filters.

Oil seed rape has a negative carbon footprint as it takes in more carbon than it produces, filtering it into the soil.

So as I say if they are used correctly then they are very profitable, but you are correct ShelleyS they must never replace crops or the natural habitat.

I am very sorry for going 'slightly' off topic on your thread, I will try to do better in the future!!
In reflection, if I had put of couple of Palikots here and there it would have ok then lol
