Warsaws controversial shake-up of its judiciary, which could force two-fifths of supreme court judges to step down, is causing increasing friction with Brussels.
The countrys new prime minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, is braced for the EU to issue an extaordinary formal warning by triggering article 7.1, a procedure which could lead to member states having bloc voting rights suspended.
He said: As far as I understand, the decision has already been made that next Wednesday [December 20] the European Commission plans to start article 7.1 it will most likely be triggered.
This could pave the way for the suspension of voting rights although this appears unlikely, given that Hungary has already indicated that it would not agree to this. Diplomats have said Warsaw has just days to avert activation of article 7.1, possibly via a veto by Polish President Andrzej Duda. However, this appears unlikely given that Mr Duda, like Mr Morawiecki, represents the right-wing Law and Justice Party.
Mr Duda hit the headlines in 2015 when he rejected EU proposals for migrant quotas to redistribute asylum seekers, saying: "I wont agree to a dictate of the strong.
From my understanding the vote to block voting rights of a member state must be unanimous by the other states and not all are in agreement with this action. If anything it may make MORE states dissent so that they can each cover each other.
FU to the EU. Bunch of prissy, Brylcream wearing jackasses trying to dictate to sovereign nations.
Is the German Chancellor angry at Poland?
I’d give them a big Foxtrot Uniform and continue what I was doing.
The EU will be extinct in our lifetimes; give it 10 years max, if that— more like six or seven.
Time for a Poexit
I’ll cheer when it collapses. It will be a joyous time, just like the collapse of the soviet union.
Let’s hope the EU will be dissolved in several years. The goal of the EU is world wide communism. And to that end the socialist want to dissolve national borders. Let’s hope that it is the socialist who are dissolved.
The EUrocrats should face tribunals for the economic sabotage, ethnic cleansing, and attempted genocide of European peoples. Hang them. Just like that bunch of utopians from 70 years ago.
The countrys new prime minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, is braced for the EU to issue an extaordinary formal warning by triggering article 7.1, a procedure which could lead to member states having bloc voting rights suspended.Time for bloodshed.
C’mon man. I love Brylcream.
US should draw way down in Germany and put a huge base in Poland and arm them— heavily.
Revenge of the Hapsburg Empire.
They should be worried about Greece and Turkey.
Isnt it time for PolExit and HunExit?
