Maciej Giertych is the father of LPR party leader Roman Giertych who serves as a deputy prime minister and education minister in the conservative PiS party-led government of Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski.
Last year, Polish media identified the MEP's young female assistant in pictures of what appeared to be a neo-Nazi drinking party.
A junior coalition partner for the PiS, the marginally popular LPR which holds only 29 seats in Poland's 460-seat parliament, recently announced it would join forces with populist farmers' party coalition partner Samoobrona to create the Liga and Samoobrona (LiS) party.
The move is seen by analysts as a desperate attempt to bolster flagging popularity which could see both parties fail to enter parliament in a possible future ballot.

Well, it's all good fun. I especially like the part about the Loch Ness monster.
