PO scamster regime
The Schetyna game plan code-named "ulica i zagranica" (and we might add "Targowica") saw Poland-bashing opposition emissaries spread their venom far and wide. It actually led to a rating-agency downturn even though in 2016 the Polish economy was hardly a shambles.
But all the ballyhoo turned out to be little more than a smoke-screen to cloud the PO's shame at total election defeat and their desperate desire to return to the trough. Now the ratings are back up, nealry all economic indicators are positive, foreign investments are growing apace, new opportuniteis are opening up for indigenous Polish entrepreneurs, innovations are being promoted, more children are being born and....for the first time in 30-some years more people are migrating to Poland than leaving!!! Of the incomers 75% are Poles returning from job stints abroad, mainly from the British Isles and Germany. Some have told reproters that maybe one can earn more abroad but the prices of everything are sky-high. On balance, many can achieve comparable purchasing power in Poland, and their foreign experience often works to their advanatge. On the plus side, in Poland they are at home with family and friends and nobody calls them "bloody foreigners".
The moral of the story: PO did a lousy job governing, thereby earning a red card from the Polish nation. And they're not doing any better as an opposition. Lots of ballyhoo but utlimately they are too weak, inefffective and clueless to do much actual harm.
