The situation is so bad that even the pro PO mainstream media has no option but to criticize them, because what else can they do?
It's certainly interesting.
I reckon it's because journalism in Poland is a tight, closed-shop. Particularly political journalism. I've seen it on other countries. When the government tries to f!ck with the media they close ranks and support each other. Poland for all its faults enjoys quite a free media, so threatening to bring journlists to court to reveal sources will not go down well and I would presume two things here.
a) the Wprost author/editor would rather serve jail time than reveal sources, if it comes to that.
b) no judge in his right mind would send the author/editor to jail...not while under the watchful eye of the EU anyway.
Or, on the other hand, the traditionally pro-PO side of the media might have come to realise that it's time to move away from PO and get behind Palikot. That would be interesting
For me, the Parafianowicz situation is more worrying. But because the law here is so bat-sh!t crazy he'll get away with it. Immunity for politicians must end.
The Belka thing isn't really that important, it's day-to-day politics. The head of the bank ask a politician whether another politician will find himself in a position in the future. That's about it.
The printing money thing would have helped to lower inflation, which would keep foreign investors interested in Poland and helped to keep interest rates down. Sure, it devalues the zloty for us living here, but when have they cared about us? They want foreign money to 'go further' and while the EU is still pumping money into Poland, those in power will continue to want to line their pockets with Brussel's money.
Have a look around the internet for successful tendering processes that have been awarded to brother/uncles/in-law/close (or distant) relatives of ministers. Corruption is still rampant in Poland and will continue to be so for a long time.
The question is what will Polish citizens do about it?
The answer is they'll do what they've always done.
Nothing, just accept it and get on with their lives coz they're so apathetic towards the boot that's firmly placed on their necks they barely even notice it's there anymore.
