Jarosław Kaczyński wants to impose a discussion and the topic of this discussion on all of us, said former deputy prime minister Janusz Piechociński in “Fakt after Fakt”, commenting on the statements of the PiS president on EU matters. According to him, the point of such actions is “that we should not talk about what is really happening in the Polish economy”. Economist Alicja Defratyka emphasized that “PiS must always scare something, there must always be an enemy”.
President of PiS Jarosław Kaczyński at the Friday meeting in Płock he argued that “from the point of view of the treaties, we have no obligation to listen to the EU about the administration of justice.” In this way, he answered the question about the milestones, the fulfillment of which determines the payment of EU funds under the National Reconstruction Plan.
Kaczyński also said that “the euro would kill us during this crisis, which was in 2008-2009 and it would kill us even more today”. – All weaker economies lose against the euro. Who benefits from the euro? Germany and the so-called cluster around German, i.e. the Netherlands, part of BelgiumAustria, Luxembourg, maybe western at most Franceand France as a whole is losing because its economy is too weak – argued the PiS president.
Economist: scaring the European Union this time Kaczyński will not work
Kaczyński’s statements about the EU were discussed in “Fakty po Faktach” on TVN24 by the former deputy prime minister and former minister of economy Janusz Piechociński and Alicja Defratyka, economist and the author of the project archiweliczby.pl.
According to Piechociński, “Jarosław Kaczyński wants to impose a discussion and the topic of this discussion on all of us.” – What’s all this about? – He was asking. According to the former deputy prime minister, “we should not talk about what is really happening in the Polish economy, what is going to happen, what are the forecasts, what are the costs and how unprepared we are for the time that is coming and has already come.”
Defratyka assessed that “PiS must always frighten with something, there must always be an enemy”. – Because it is easy to beat someone, it is easy to mobilize people around a common idea – she explained. – I think that the euro should be the common idea. Because this is something that should unite us – assessed the economist.
Noting that Kaczynski said that the introduction of the euro would “kill us” indicated that this was the opinion of the PiS president. – This scaring with the European Union will not work for him this time. Because there are even the latest Eurobarometer results, where the vast majority of Poles, i.e. over 80 percent, are satisfied with the fact that European Unionthat we are a member of the European Union – she said.
