I lived in a Katowice version of Dougpol Towers when I first came here. A few years ago, when it was worth 250 thousand zl, the old PIS mob had a similar scheme.
My physiotherapist wasn't very well paid, poor chap, and had 2 young daughters. His wife also was a physio.
The government awarded them a flat - identical in every shape and form, and of course size, to mine.
The price? 7,500 zl.
So don't achieve too much and PIS might just reward you.
It's called socialism folks - and although Blair 1997 was a Godsend to the UK, Poland can't afford handouts. Study, get qualified, and there will be plenty for everyone in the future market economy of Poland - but not with populist hand-out schemes, that are not properly budgeted, ruling the roost.
If the government really want to act to solve the housing situation, the first thing to do would be to dismantle the old Housing Committees, the spoldzielnie, but they will never do that because they are jobs for the boys, for life:(
I don't like the idea of giving all MPs a 2000 rise
A 2000 zl rise? Derisory. They should get more than that - IF they are performing, but some seem hell bent on self-promotion
