The Prime Minister announces tough talks with Brussels regarding Ukrainian grain. But why should they be difficult if the most important person in Brussels for agriculture is Commissioner Janusz Wojciechowski, sent there by the Prime Minister? Farmers have been warning about the problems for almost a year.
Law and Justice spoke on the issue of Ukrainian grain. The government decided not to open the border to them after September 15 – contrary to previous EU announcements. – Either the European Union, the Commission and Brussels bureaucrats will agree to our demand, or we will introduce these solutions ourselves – says Prime Minister Morawiecki. This attitude of the government is a response to accusations that the Polish government was unable to organize grain transit, which caused a crisis and a wave of protests. – Our rulers did nothing for a year and a half to defend Poland. We are here on equal terms with others and we will talk – announces Michał Kołodziejczak, Civic Coalition.
Michał Kołodziejczak in Strasbourg shows that the opposition wants dialogue with the European Union when PiS is trying to use force. – We must also remember about our citizens and our agriculture – emphasizes Jarosław Kaczyński. The EU commissioner for agriculture is a Pole, recommended by PiS. So why was he unable to arrange an extension of the embargo with the European Commission? – asks PSL. The common agricultural policy means billions of subsidies for Polish farmers, but it is to be a common policy, not a separate one. Michał Kołodziejczak believes that PiS is not currently fighting for Polish bread.
Two faces of PiS?
Which PiS is real? – asks the Left. Is it the PiS that issued hundreds of thousands of visas to residents of Asia and Africa, or the one that scares people with the alleged brutality and aggression of foreigners? – We are dealing not only with gigantic hypocrisy, but also with consciously leading towards some gigantic social conflict – says Cezary Tomczyk from PO. After a parliamentary inspection at the Police Headquarters, the opposition says that the authorities are hiding information for another day. In the background there are reports of corruption, selling visas for $5,000 and the hasty dismissal of Deputy Minister Wawrzyk. His successor has already been appointed. – This is about a billion, one and a half, maybe two billion dollars on trade in Polish visas – warns Donald Tusk.
Opposition politicians across the country presented proposals for entrepreneurs, young people and women. This is a series of conferences – also about the health care system, where there was talk about increasing expenditures or shortening queues. The third path was about cheap renewable energy. – It will be possible to buy electricity locally from a private producer. Just like shopping online, said Szymon Hołownia.
