Just because you can't afford the Greyhound/PKS bus to leave your town and have a day of sightseeing. don't take it out on normal people that like to see new things.

News / Coronavirus in Poland [9696]

anyone studied genetics or microbiology on here lol? medium.com/@yurideigin/lab-made-cov2-genealogy-through-the-lens-of-gain-of-function-research-f96dd7413748 looks pretty coprehensive If you hear anyone claim "we know the virus didn't come from a lab", don't buy it - it may well have. Labs around the globe have been creating synthetic viruses like CoV2 for years. And no, its genome would not necessarily contain hallmarks of human manipulation: modern genetic engineering tools permit cutting and pasting genomic fragments without leaving a trace. It can be done quickly, too: it took a Swiss team less than a month to create a synthetic clone of CoV2."

And this right here, ladies and gents puts paid to the PRL, one party state malarkey. You should have embelished your story to give your angle some cred. If PiS = PRL you boss would have been pressured to fire you, tax dept on your case, random pull over by the police etc. instead nothing! prob one of the above would have happened in the 2000s with PO and oligarch mates in charge. or u really pissed them off u would have joined the serial suicide club.

UK, Ireland / Best Digital Banks in Poland (main account is in the UK) [12]

so you are saying jon your bank charges you 9.50 to put your money from worldfirst account, sounds like a scam? because transferwise gives you a PLN account unlike worldfirst its an intra country transfer with a very small fee . to the OP i don't know about the u.k but in australia many bank accounts here have a no currency conversion fee and a no international atm fee. If you are only here for a few months it could be just as easy having a u.k account/card with those features and just using the mastercard currency rate (better than visa) to do the pln-pound conversions when you pay for stuff.

yes transferwise add a .05 percent fee to the spot rate true, ill take your word for it that worldfirst does not do this but if its the spot rate how do they make money? the innovative element with transferwise is one gets a virtual bank account in 5 or so countries, (including poland) meaning that other people can send you money around the world , instead of using ripoff paypal or Western Union. . ie you have someone in the germany that wants to send you euros they just transfer it to your euro account and then you chuck into your polish transferwise acount then onto a real polish bank account or use the debit card. its complicated but brilliant. the founder was one of the original developers of skype so i reckon theyre cool

considering you were the one that had intimate knowledge of far-left/anarchist squats in warsaw and gave me the second degree when i said i visited one, i now surmise you are not in fact a PO supporter but really a SLD/Razem/Etc supporter but have not cottoned on to the fact the concept of total oppositon is over. poor delph always two steps and two thoughts behind.

the idea of Polish people accepting a one party state again is as ludicrous as the idea of Scotish people being competent enough to manage an independent country. When PiS lose popular support theyll be voted out, unf for you its another 4 years at least to grind and nash your teeth all u PO people can say is ughh ahh totalitiarnism! just today the german court gave the ECB and ECJ the middle finger, looks like it's o.k in a democracy! don't worry zandberg will grow up one day and become a jewish populist.

depends wether you want to set up a real bank account or the 'digital' ones. if the latter suggest you go with transferwise. gives you a virtual polish bank a/c and a debit card. prob sign up with your u.k details as they are based there. For a real bank account depends on your needs but nest bank is the best for fee free.

the beuty of transferwise is that it will give you the spot rate for foreign currency conversation and not the sometimes dodgy bank rate.

traffic jam is many estonians, lithuanians, latvians who want to get home but are refused by polish authorties. some buses allowed through but no cars. Germany is offering ferry service instead. Not a good way to treat eastern neighbours esp with the three seas initiative. Can't they just organise a car convoy with police escort to make sure they don't interact with the populace? **** in the woods and etc. telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/03/17/hundreds-stranded-poland-border-closure-cuts-baltic-states/

Its called internet provocation to make a point. And that you communist apologists need to be scared just like after Smolensk when the other side had to go through the serial suicides.

the groups he wants to kill.... don't really exist.....

Really? who owns all the toll highways? who owns the media companies? who was behind amber gold and the plot to bankrupt LOT? Have you no knowledge of the economic gangster privatisation? the warsaw police chief that was murdered in the 90s when he was on the brink of smashing the układ? the FOZZ affair, mafia paliwowa, WSI scandals, numerous assasinations of politicians. Just cause the wealth been passed on the the children and its peacefull because PiS is in power does not mean the crimes of the post communism do not need to be avenged.

No I mean an actual Kristallnacht against PO clique under the cover of the virus. ie. summary exectutions and appropriation of wealth. Especially the SB/UB supported oligarchs and their children who have now inherited the wealth. PO politicians are usefull idiots and maybe should just be jailed for now . Under the fog of war (the virus) EU will not be able to do much.

That would be good, Hopefully this crisis will be a good justification for a Kristallnacht against PO and its post communist oligarch allies. Something about mandatory quarantine and death from the virus should suffice and not cause too much of an outrage if the information is controlled appropriatly. Renationalisation of their wealth might be trickier, but with the EU Commision in the throws of the pandemic and upcoming financial collapse it should be possible.

So the virus spreads before people even know they have it. Closing borders good call, i think Poland needs to quarantine affected suburbs and towns in the future when needed with the Army. edition.cnn.com/2020/03/14/health/coronavirus-asymptomatic-spread/index.html

hahha all you low paid teachers were saying a year ago that PiS would be defeated at the parlamentary elections, now you just switched to presidentia lelectionsl, unlike a broken clock you guys are never right but i guess you need something to believe.. Duda is the most respected politician in poland, many PSL/Kukiz and Konfederacja voters will vote for him. 4 more years of PiS! God is great!

Janusz Korwin Mikke is not "neo-liberal" but a Liberatarian Conservative of classic Austrian school of economics. "Economy stupid"! :-)

Well when i heard a Konfederacja guy quoting heritage foundation reports during polsat debate i dion't think there is much difference. Tell me what benefit to poland getting rid of income tax, getting rid of goverment hospitals pensions, child support, subsidised transport will be? apart from creating a new feudal system? Libeterians are just as idealistic as socialists, and just as naive.

Just because PiS was a 3 percentage points below the most optmistic sondaz before the election, well it does not take away from the fact that this is a stunning victory, with the highest percentage for a party in thirty years, and being able to have a outright majority in the sejm two elections in a row is unprecendentd. the radical paced changes to the country and its post communist elite will continue. just look at tomek lis wailings in newsweek. we have via carpathia, via baltica, cpk and other massive investments coming up, all will be controlled by PiS friendly companies. Hopefully Schetyna will cling on, and futther lead PO gangsters to electoral abyss The new sejm will be more dynamic and intersting with Konfederacja and SLD attacking each other, framing PiS as a centrist party. The EU and IIIRP oligarchs will now have to come around and accept Polands Pis. The days of total opposition are over. Polish people won and the expats will have to accept it.

and any ammendements made by senat can be rejected by sejm. all the senate can do is delay. PiS will play on their electoral mandate and make the opposition clowns look bad. SLD and PSL will support PiS social policies. Not much has changed.
