„What now? Are you going to litter the whole neighborhood again with that crap? It is beyond belief how much paper is wasted to fulfill wet dreams of that idiot and this cow of his!” - elderly lady walking the street with her york was obviously not too happy with us blocking the pavement outside local Yes Shop in order to unload new delivery from the printing works.
“Of course that Salmond is an idiot, and I can't stand that Sturgeon lady as well” - answered young boy with pierced face who was wearing a white “Yes” shirt - “but this is the very reason why we should vote “Yes” next week!”

Before we finished with unloading the van, young man managed to lay out his twisted line of reasoning and the old lady seemed to be leaning towards voting for independence. Before she left, she asked for some booklets to give out to her friends. Because every reason is good to vote for independence. Even that Alex Salmond, a prime minister of Scotland and leader of Scottish National Party, is an idiot.

The recent state funeral of late General Jaruzelski sparkled very hot controversies and discussion. As a member of the anti-communist underground I have suffered a lot from the hands of the regime lead by him. But today I do not deny him the right to be buried on Powązki cementary along with his brothers-in-arms from the times of second world war. And I would like to explain why.

Many historians were amongst many emigrants, who settled in the UK after Second World. They did not decided to go back to their country due to new political conditions there. Leon Koczy (1900-1981) was unquestioned star amongst Polish academics. While working as a lecturer at University of Glasgow, he was very active within a Polish community in Scotland.

Since “Wprost” weekly published first of many of private conversations between politicians, Polish media and public are mostly occupied by its emergence. These tapes shocked many, but in most cases not in the way intended by the publishers. Still it caused a strong stir on the Polish political scene.

By annexing Crimea, Vladimir Putin behaved like the Godfather. He told Russia and the world: either your brains or your signature will be on that contract. This policy has proved successful, though nobody knows for how long.

In his yesterday’s speech, Putin spoke his mind: his regime fears no punishment and will do whatever it pleases. Crimea is just a first step in his dream of greatness. Yet he didn’t say everything.



  • W języku angielskim istnieje zgrabne pojęcie "road rage". Określa ono stan, w jakim znajduje się kierowca, doprowadzony do ostateczności przez innych użytkowników drogi. Stan ten, jak można się domyślić, daleki jest od znanego nam wszystkim (przynajmniej teoretycznie) stanu - błogostanu.
