German and French banks raided the Irish treasury and now they laid it at the feet of the Irish tax payer.
Actually, it was an Irish bank that raided the Irish treasury. In fact, the only banks of note in Ireland were Irish and British.
Iceland on the other hand limited the debt to the banks where it belonged. And they have their own currency...
Iceland is a dreadful example to use - the country is in no way comparable to even Ireland, let alone Poland.
They too can fall victim to German banks.
What German banks? The big names on the Polish high street are all owed by other than Germany, except Deutsche Bank. Let's see..
PKO BP = Polish
PEKAO = Polish
WBK = Spanish
Deutsche Bank = German
BRE Bank (Multibank/mBank) = Portuguese
Raiffeisen = Austrian
Bank BPH = American
ING = Dutch
Millennium = Portuguese
Nordea = Swedish
Not much German banking going on here, that's for sure.
Poland needs to become independent of Germany and Russia, not easy but doable.
Why? What harm has came to Poland through being associated with Germany? I can see German cash flowing into Poland to pay for the renovation and construction of endless projects, though.
As for Russia - I don't see much Russian influence here either.
