News / How could PiS better spend billions instead of 500+ ? [134]

No Anthead - child benefit UK is paid for 2 children only.

gov.uk/child-benefit
You get Child Benefit if you're responsible for bringing up a child who is:
under 16 under 20 if they stay in approved education or training
It's paid every 4 weeks and there's no limit to how many children you can claim for.

News / How could PiS better spend billions instead of 500+ ? [134]

Poland has a "big" economy, but a far lower GDP than Sweden or Belgium.

Per the International Monetary Fund (2019 estimates)[1]
RankCountry/TerritoryGDP
(US$million)
21 Poland593,295
22 Sweden547,123
23 Belgium531,813

Child support in other countries is for the first two children only and was 30 pounds a month in the UK last time I checked..

Uk Child Benefits Payment.
Eldest or only child £20.70 Weekly
Additional children £13.70 (per child) Weekly.
So for three kids in the u.K child benefits are 932.93 złoty monthly. Of course there are a myriad of unemployment, housing, disability, heating welfare payments in the UK that Poland lacks, so 500 zloty per child is an good amount to reduce poverty, increase economic consumption and growth. This helps all sectors of the economy, including yours.

You seem quite pessimistic about the polish economy and people. cheer up! we are doing great, thanks to the hardworking nature of the polish people and the goverments wise economic and social policies.

Ive lived both in england and poland in the last 10 years. I don't know what you are going on about social benefits and refusing jobs, perhaps pay your workers more then. I thought we were talking about 500+ otherwise known as child support. So lets have it on the record? you believe Poland should not offer child support payment to its citizens? It has the 21st largest economy , (ahead of sweden and belgium), the sixth highest growth rate in the world (5.8 percent) , the countries budget is in about to be in surplus. Child support payments are years overdue for a middle economy like Poland. You are spouting absolute tosh old chap.

News / Famous Poles die - your memories [23]

A true hero, and good to see how his legacy lives on in his son, who even Sikorski called a patriot when he was appointed.

Funny how the Walęsa Bolek fool called him a traiter at the KO conference. And people applauded. Poland will never vote these Post-Communists in. ! We are on the right path!

News / How could PiS better spend billions instead of 500+ ? [134]

Its not a party issue for me but an outcome based calculations. If PO had done anything usefull during their last term maybe I would be more disposed to taking them seriously

Even the guardian admits that PiS 500+ policy has lifted hundreds of thousands of poles out of poverty and given them a sense of human dignity.

"At my school, I have seen the transformation of the 500 Plus at first-hand," says Janusiewicz. ... "Parents can afford to send their children to scout camps and extra-curricular activities. The clothes that pupils from the poorer families wear are of better quality." Voluntary donations used to be collected at the school to provide financial assistance and meals to the poorest pupils. "We closed the fund," says Janusiewicz. "It's not needed any more. Self-esteem has been restored to those people in need."

Any person who attacks these policies, that have lifted so many out of poverty, is selfish and non empathic to people less fortunate than themselves. Going further, It is rephrenesible that posters support the exact same policy in great britain as essential but for poland make spurious and futile claims of laziness and bribes, soley for ideological reasons and hatred of Poland. These people that hold this extremely hypocritical view are bigoted, xenophobic, Human Scum.

Re health and education system, i am not denying that the govement had other priotrities over the last 3 years. But that is about to radically change in a big way. But the critics will condem it as buying votes for babcias in the village...

first they increased family payments, raised the pension age, increased pensions, stopped the VAT frauds (10 billion euro per year!) curtailed the mafia paliwowa, now thats done and they have proved to people they can get stuff done, they will focus on health and education in the next three years. PO and everyone said that 500+ could never be done, that raising the retirement age would ruin the country, that tax fraud is too hard, , and look what happened. ?? the same thing will happen with health and education. mark my words.

welcome to the new world pawian, the concepts of left and right have faded, and are irrelevant in poland. (though the pol-yank rednecks still apply their obsolete american definitions) and it's more about nationalists vs cosmopolitians or nation state vs globalism. Pis is puting more money into infrastructure and health etc as well as investing money so poland becomes a high wage highly skilled economy and does not get stuck in the middle country trap. ie portugal and greece. Our budget deficit situation is better than most countries in europe , our growth is 6th in world, we have sovereignity over our own currency, the global rate for borrowing money is at an all time low. This is the time to spend on infrastructure, r&D and social spending. Also people think the money will come from higher taxes. what about growth and increased productivity? If there is a recession however, I have no problem with the goverment levying Banks and other transnationals, and siezing pawians farm.

ure mad maf. pis policies are the challenge to neoliberalism poland has been waiting for. but you deflect it by calling it buying votes , lol. is salvinis and five star past proposal for univeral basic income buying votes as well? the hypocrisy is astounding from the pompats. there are many similarities between salvini , kurz and Pis. much more than the che loving zandberg, though i do admire his style. as the deutche welle headline said, 'Poland where Keynes meets Jesus.." I see the conservatives in pom land have taken a leaf out of pioneering polands book and are masively increasing infrastructure and social spendng, even promising to boost the minimum wage! imitation is the sincerest form of flattery as they say.

News / Decent left wing analysis of the left in Poland [10]

i think you missed my winking smiley, besides if someone is here on a student visa then they have satisfied the entry recquirements of polish goverment, are paying money to study in poland, and economically should be taxed the same as polish citizens. besides if what delph says is true, then they are legit employed and not working in the black economy.

Before I contribute on topic, I need to know if "decent" applies to left wing or to analysis coz it is ambiguous.

Both :)

afaik i know they have, or they have elimated the introduction of new trash contracts. please point me to a polish source that proves your point. By eliminating income tax or under 26 year olds they have improved the financial condition on those people on?/formerly on trash contracts.

News / Success: 120 of Polish Pesa trams for Moscow! [9]

PiS nationalised Pesa as it was in dire financial straights, they are a world class train and tram manufacturing outfit, they have had sales in germany as well as bulgaria. I hope they get more orders in western markets over the next 10 years. I was thinking of actually convincing them to bid for aussie contracts as bombradier and the spanish outfit have a stranglehold on trams here, and they overcharge like buggery.

News / Decent left wing analysis of the left in Poland [10]

From the Soros Open democracy conglomerate, ocaisonally they have thoughtfull articles and this one provides 3/4 competent research and conclusions, through some of their lunacy hilariously comes out "PiS ideas for redistribution revoltingly oriented towards the "traditional family" model" LOL

Loved their takedown of PO and SLD though !
"PO's big words infuriated people at whose expenses the "success" was achieved: workers pushed to trash contracts with no minimum wages, no health insurance, sick leaves, holidays or prospects for a pension. "

opendemocracy.net/en/can-europe-make-it/whats-left-in-poland-can-the-three-tenors-led-by-adrian-zandberg-take-on-polands-duopoly/

Will zanderberg once again be charming and on point during the debates? Why did razem and wiosna lie down with the SLD scum? will the left enjoy a lazarus resurection in poland from the working class who get sick of PiS? will the polish youths once again be singing the internationale at independence day?

where does the olive skin and brown eyes come from? of course during hundreds of years of raids there would have been many rapes and those genes wouldhave been passed down

History / Why did Hitler call Poles Half Jews? [98]

King Kazimierz gave sanctuary to millions of jews across europe who were suffering pogroms and persecution at the time. Polish people also have a strong share of Tatar and Mongol genes. the olive skin and brown eyes look. Basically before WWII Poland was a multiethnic society with polish tribes, ukranian tribes and polish jews living together and cohabitating and marriage etc with other poles. I don't know much about hitlers views but perhaps he was influenced by polish towns such as lwow, where polish jews where in the majority.

he's not a retard polak hes a loser brit who had no prospects in his home country and thought he could impress a desperate polish fraulein with 40 pounds in his pocket thirty years ago. Usually people emigrate to countries with a higher or equal standard of living and earning potential. It takes a real faliure, someone with pathetic life prospects for finding a female partner and employement in his home country to emigrate to a country in economic colapse and mass poverty. Or he came over before 89 as a communist apologist/idelouge. Either way the explanation for alcodougpol1's life aren't good.

Well considering you moved back to England, you don't really have a leg to stand on do you? As if i would tell you what taxes i pay on property and shares. You are not a polish citizen so shut your trap. Once PiS wins the next elections (as even its hardened enemies admit this will transform the country forever) I will be lobbying my local senator to have a stated policy to deal with ungratefull expats who continuesly make anti-polish statements online. once brexit happens it will be so much easier to have you deported or banned from re-entering the country. There will be plenty of Ukrainians and Philipinos to replace your meagre and mediocre efforts in Poland.

the back of my current dowod osobisty says meldunek warszawa. Are you going to address the contents of the euronews article or resort to adhominim? specifically

"Moreover, people under the age of 26 will not pay income taxes, pensioners will see rising pensions and the general population will pay lower income taxes by 1%. Importantly, these transfers do not jeopardize the country's solid fiscal position with the budget deficit at less than 2% of GDP. " no copy-paste.

great report on the polish economy by euronews. The takeout for me, apart from Polands GDP growth being the 4th highest in the world (!) is the the 500+ program by the v succsesfull goverment + infrastructure spending, is adding to the consumer boom in poland, We march forward, confident that the polish people have chosen well at the ballot box.
