Apart of that, out of 27 members there are those who have more to say than the others
And you know why they have more "say"? Better networking....being longer member still helps too....they are net payer....taking over responsibilities...that all Poland could do too...SHOULD too, instead of pouting in a corner and throwing tantrums....THAT won't gain you any support aka influence at all.
A union is for teamplayers!
"Vassals"....interesting choice of words for members who have all the same rights and duties...
What do you think will happen to Poland outside the EU? With a Poland which nobody gives a sh'it about...sure, you would have alot less duties, but alot less rights too and no vote at all.
You think of the union members as vassals? That's the future for Poland alone...you WILL become another ones vassal...again...all you will be able to do is saying THANK YOU to the few crumbs falling from the table of the big guys.
I have news for you, if you don't "make it" inside the EU, where you sit as equal on the table, you won't make it at all outside!
Poland, pay with your culture and your traditions
Did you? If so that has totally gone lost on me...and I apologize!
