Well probably now we will have massive anti-abortion protests because on the PiS motion Sejm Justice and Human Rights commission rejected the whole project. Facebook is currently being flooded by angry posts. Brace yourselves.

Oh man, I just love to browse throught my wall xD


What is more funny PO wanted to recall that commission meeting and its decisions as they say it was unconstitutional (term was not legally ok) so they if they want or not defended the Ordo Iuris project. Circus, everybody trolled by Kaczyński, even his own MEPs because as far as I know they still defended the project in the PE which dozens minutes ago had debate about situation of women in Poland (also in context of abortion laws).


As I said earlier I really wasn't thinking they will do that with such brutality but still I don't understand how so many people were able to believe that "hurr evil Kaczyński want to jail women durr"

This reminds me of Orwell's 1984 with a speaker blasting Eurasia before he received memo it's Eastasia that's bad now and corrects himself.

I'm a bit surprised, though. I expected it being kep in the freezer until things calm down. But Kaczyński is everything but idiot.

Also, how is Nowoczesna different than PO exactly? Sorry for all the dumb noob questions, but I haven't been able to follow Polish politics much lately. Undecided

Practical difference on European level: PO belongs to the EPP while Nowoczesna to ALDE.

1. PO is first of all party of power which lost power. They have more members, a lot of members on local level, in local power ruling bodies, a lot of cash and still some political power. Nowoczesna is party of mainly one man and few his goons. I don't know anyone who knows more than 2 MPs of Nowoczesna.
2. PO is maybe not considered in Poland as conservative party but still they are more conservative socially than .N.
3. Nowoczesna is as Kal said member of ALDE so they are more liberal, both in terms of economy (for example they were against minimal wage [all but one MP] and they are for example now against changes in shopping regulations as for the trading on Sundays) and social issues.

Ugh. Oh well. I guess SOCIALLY LIBERAL BUT FISCALLY CONSERVATIVE is the best you can hope for in Poland these days.

Now that you've mentioned it, I can't name more. It's good pal Richard Swetru all over.

Just to explain: Petru (his name) -> Swetru from Sweter (sweater)

Other thing that Ryszard Petru beside being economist he is known of saying a lot of stupid things, I don't know if he just say things too fast, before thinking about them or he is just stupid but well, he is not the best person in terms of communication with media.

I remember 4: Petru, Lubnauer (she is from my electoral district), Scheuring-Wielgus and Gasiuk-Pihowicz (because she is not the brightest person in the Sejm).

One recent example, after one of Nowoczesna's politicians came out as gay. Soon after Petru, in an interview, said something like "well, I'm not against gays but they should't show it openly" (I don't remember an exact quote).

State TV made a stunning discovery: various anti-government protests being attended by the same mysterious individual...



Oh wait, that's Marek Kossakowski. Green co-chair and Solidarity veteran. Yet this mysterious connection somehow became a major news.

This is why an abortion ban wouldn't work in the US.

Nowaczesna may have filled with Palikot's niche, but they'll never replace Palikot in my heart.

Personally, I think he should only get one testicle removed (moderate hero)
Such a solution would certainly be completely unacceptable for me. However, for the sake of moderate herosim, I might very well be willing to keep my scrotum. Smiley Indeed, does that sound fair? Smiley

Possible? Hard to tell. In my opinion it is too late, they should do more when PO had the biggest troubles. But they still have chances because it seems that PO is slowly crumbling apart, and their problems will continue. But their biggest problem is that next elections are local ones and they can't outnumber PO and they probably will not be able to participate on level lower than voivodship level.

There was a time when media gone all "OMG PO's dead an Petru's new King" due to some polls showing Nowoczesna ahead and the fact their activity in Sejm was much more effective than PO, which was torn apart by succession race. BUT PO has a great structural advantage and Nowoczesna just recently lost it's donations via Court decision (Razem has some problems with this, but everybody cares about Petru).

Palikot was quite a troll. I wish he were a better politician, though (voted TR in 2011).

Presidential approvals per TNS:

Approve: 48% (-3)
Disapprove: 41% (+2)
Undecided: 11% (+1)

More specifically:

Very good: 9%
Good: 39%
Bad: 28%
Very bad: 13%


Freaking impressive, given the Presidency is basically vacant. Duda makes Komorowski look like a true titan of activity.
