Poland rejects idea of EU elite group "G6"

Poland has rejected the idea of an informal G6 of the European Union's largest members, suggested by Italy to address its worries about Franco-German dominance of the EU, in a sign of its unwillingness to jeopardise Warsaw's close ties with Berlin.

Would it benefit Poland to approve the creation of the G6 or should it continue its work in the Weimar Triangle ( France, Germany, Poland ).

( France, Germany, Poland )

Man...imagine this axis (France-Germany-Poland)...that is the best of Europe...Italy will just have to look on! ;)

....
Although Poland – the sixth-largest EU state, with 38m people – would be the only central European beneficiary of a G6 scheme, Warsaw has aligned itself with what it sees as the fiscally conservative countries of northern Europe, led by Germany, rather than the more profligate nations of the south. Mr Sikorski described Poland’s relations with Germany, its former foe, as “the best in history”...
...
Polish-German warmth extends beyond EU issues. Germany is Poland’s largest trading partner and, as the foreign minister pointed out, Poland is a larger trading partner for Germany than Russia.

Good, let's finish those corrupt Roman bastards off for once and for all! (I would rather speak French, Polish or German than Italian!)

In my opinion i would actually rather have the Weimar triangle. France and Germany were and is the benefactors of the polish prodigy. With these countries leading Europe i can only see good things come out of it.

This polish decision to throw in their towel with France and Germany instead of Italy or Spain will have consequences...positive ones.

I too expect a good future between us!

The relationship between Italy and Poland wont be the best for a while now. I guess this is something Italy been working with for a while.

Maybe this was a way for italy to try get a piece of the cake since sooner or later something like this would have came up. With the Polish, German and French alliance they would have over 221 out of 736 seats in the European Parliament. and adding some more small countries to this alliance would make them "de facto" leaders. Funny how alliances are made within an alliance.

Not funny but logical and quite common!

Wherever humans come together there is group building...even if they are in the same party with the same goals...opinions just differ...how about which way is best....and how to go about it...

Right now the northern group thinks their way to handle the crisis is best...they want some changes to the base of the organisation, some adapting to the treaty...so that such a catastrophe can't happen again.

Other countries don't see it like this...so now there is discussion, trying to convince and searching for likeminded allies to strenghten the own camp to get a majority in either this or that direction!

All part of a healthy democratic process...as there is, contrary to some conspiracy specialists, no faceless, grey entity in Brussels which decides as she sees fit for all of us.

The reality is much harder and more difficult...
Just think your own parliament with it's parties and coalitions multiplicated by 27!
