The strength of the PiS opposition is that they are not false, artificial and out of this world like Mr Sikorski.
You must be kidding, right?
The opposition are incredibly weak - they don't have a coherent message, and have failed to oppose the Government on many, many issues where they could have opposed - instead choosing to focus on Smolensk and other trivial issues. In fact, the SLD are pretty much the true opposition right now - which is pathetic.
We live in the officially optimistic society; official optimism tries to shore up what is failing - economy (unemployment, poverty), basically everything what matters for common people.
Most common people don't have problems in Poland with unemployment and poverty. And don't you think it's time that Poland started being optimistic rather than doom and gloom, as has been the case for the last 200 years or so?
Thus official optimism feeds despair rather than hope and in addition to that conceals the truth also.
What is "the truth"? The country is getting richer, even "poor" people are still rich in world terms - heck - Poland even manages to do a damn fine job of educating people to a minimum standard.
