Mr Tusk, Polish prime minister announced that the government needs reconstruction after CBA (Central Anti-corruption Bureau) revealed dealings of couple of top politicians with gamble industry barons

LOL, what a surprise! Just like the American CIA who created money laundering accounts to take in Colombian drug money. What pathetic cretins!

I'm afraid that **** hit the fan, and there's a whole avalanche of scandals coming soon, and there I was believing in POs clarity and courtesy.. how dare they risk another set of years with PiS lurking everywhere..

Let's face it, this had to happen sooner or later. Tusk played the safe card for far too long. What I'm interested to know is if Poland has whips like we do in Britain. Whips are those that keep everyone in line.

Tusk can't be on permanent watch but people will judge him on his response, of course.

well it was pretty obvious that PiS will have something in their sleeve, and throw it some time before elections.. personally I was expecting something of a smaller magnitude, some more of these communist bollocks they used to serve that would backfire later anyway.

whips like we do in Britain

From what I heard there are still some MPs of the moat digging kind still serving the country.. beside I'm pretty sure that in UK politicians have much more experience in hiding their little schemes. In here these guys are just toddlers..

He seems to have been pretty decisive - not only getting rid of those involved, but also seeking to put an end to the partisan politics played by the CBA.

The problem is that if you can't trust the CBA to be impartial, just who can you trust?

Unofficially but yes the position exists.

Key words, seems to be.

CBA couldnt be trusted from the beginning, it was a political construct from the start, i dont see what are you amazed about.

impartial

There's no word impartial in politics. CBA was created in such way that it would be hard for the gov to get read of it or its boss and PiS could maintain this little amount of power with it.
