  2. EU: from the Holy Roman Empire to the Fourth Reich in two easy millennia.

    Poland: from Russian tzar's personal gubernia to Donald Trump's personal banana-vassalate in two easy centuries.

    Germany: from the industrial powerhouse to the caliphate powderkeg in two uneasy Merkel terms in office.

    Russia: from ridiculed to ridiculing in two easy years.

    World: from living hell to hell-in-a-basket in two dreadful months.

    UK: from the breadbasket to the basket case in two godawful Tory governments.

    Bitcoin: from here to eternity in two easy trading sessions.

    And the fun is just beginning...

  4. The problem is that after Brexit we will get less money from EU ... I think we should make an Union of Balkans and help Albania and Kosovo for build some hospitals and modern schools in Albania and Kosovo

  9. Quoting Prime Minister Morawiecki, who as a teenager was beaten up by uniformed Communist thugs:
    "In the 1989 Roundtable Talks between Polandís Communists and the democratic opposition, then-president General Wojciech Jaruzelski Ė the man who ran Polandís martial law government for the Soviets Ė was allowed to nominate an entirely new bench of Communist-era judges to staff the post-communist courts. These judges dominated our judiciary for the next quarter century. Some remain in place.
    To this day, an elite council of 25, dominated by 15 judges on the appellate level or above, nominates all judges including their own successors. No trial judge or elected official participates. The president may accept or reject the nominees. The system lends itself to nepotism and corruption.
    For example, in 2012, during a government-wide salary freeze, in the midst of an economic crisis and austerity, a group of judges sued the government in each othersí courts, alleging breaches of their employment agreements, so that they could award each other damages."
    Rule of law under Donald Tusk - his coalition partners saw their results in the last local elections go up by 1000% in areas they controlled ... convincing arguments!!
    PwC said in 2017 that Law and Justice has done more to improve the tax collection system in 18 months than all the governments in Poland since 1989 put together.
    Poland's Economic Miracle under the Post-Communists saw two million fleeing the statistical success!

  10. Brexit, Poland being stripped, borders being re-erected. Are the Balkans so screwed-up that they want to jump onto a sinking ship? Create your own Balkan Union. If you canít live with one another first, itís highly unlikely youíd succeed in anything else.
