Waiting for Godot

It is now some considerable time after the Polish general elections in which PiS gained an overall majority of seats. So one would have thought that by now we would know who will be a minister in the new government. But no, the nation is to wait until such time as Kaczyński has spoken. Those who harboured the belief that the nominated Prime Minister (my name is Szydło, Beata Szydło) had a ready list of candidates to present to Parliament should by now have no illusions at all that both the Presidency and the Government will in fact be steered from the back seat by Jarosłwa Kaczyński.

And of course PiS is now back tracking on its election promises to simultaneously reduce taxes, reduce the budget deficit and increase spending.

Interesting times indeed…
