Polands real base began rebuilding decades after EU's
With the help of EU-money (so Germany's, Belgium's, France's, Dutch) ... a kind of -allbeit belayed- kind of Marshall-plan.
Look at Wroclaw's railway station: build by the Germans and renovated by the EU. (And still the damn railway companies say they would like to be exempt from paying compensation for delayed trains for the next 4 years - g0ddamn incompetent bunch.) Not much Polish money invested there, if you ask me. Look at all the new motorways around Wroclaw: build by the Chinese if I am not mistaken and paid for by the EU. And the list goes on and on and on.
I wouldn't beat the drum so loudly, if I were you.
Don't forget that Poland currently is the biggest recipient of EU-grants.
Jee ... and if you have to be proud of the fact that only NOW a Ferrari dealership has opened ... holy crap! Belgium, Germany, France, the Netherlands and a lot of other countries (even Hungary, the Chech Republic and Rumania!) had them for years and years. Wow ... what an achievement ... :-S.
Cheap, Polonius ... cheap.
The West offered Poland the Marshall Plan, and the red scum in Poland said words to the effect of: "nahh, we don't need it".
So ... they were offered it and said no. Then don't complain 60-odd years later you didn't get it.
