really keep telling yourself that. The EU is under pressure from all sides Germany, France and the UK to reduce the budget of the EU. The 80 billion for Poland would be a good amount to begin with. They will cut funding that wont directly effect their own! sorry Poland! Now it's time to fend for yourself!
They won't, because Germany, France (especially France!) and the UK also benefit massively from these funds. Scotland, particularly the Highlands also gained a massive amount of cash compared to the amount of people living there. France don't want to reduce the budget because the CAP will come under renewed fire, and Germany is paying this money to have access to nice stable export markets.
It may not be 80 billion, but all proposals on the table suggest they'll get at least 80% of that. And if you knew anything about the EU and how it's funded, some of that cash comes from Poland too.
Poland has to maintain the integrity of it's currency or it's bye bye sovereignty, hello Greece
No, it's not. Many Eurozone countries are doing just fine - Estonia, Slovakia, Luxembourg, etc.
Instead of looking for more EU funny money the Poles should seriously think about paying back the EU grants and loans and learn to fend for itself and "grow up" as a nation.
What, and end up with a drop in living standards of about 15-20%? Are you insane?
and the UK can become like the Swiss.
What, tied to the EU through non-negotiable treaties without a say and paying for the pleasure of it? Yes, I can't wait!
For those that think that Poland is getting cash for nothing take a look at the PIGS and see how many 'puppet' government the Germans have put in place. In Poland the mose anti-euro government all perished in a plane crash... coincidence... i think not!
Anti-Euro government? May I remind you that President Kaczynski failed to remove Poland from the EU despite having the mandate to do so?
