I always do. I don't speak for the Kaczynski twins though any more than you speak for Merkel, or for that matter William, Gordon Brown.

Poland has always been in Europe while the Russians never have been.
It's not being in Europe that is contested here, but being ACCEPTED by other European countries that matter.

Poland has a long way to go before it achieve that, and the present government just goes the opposite way by rubbing everyone the wrong way.

Fact: If Poland further indulges in licking the asses of far away fair weather friends like the US and thinks she can piss on their mighty neighbours Russia and Germany as she likes she will not have a prospering future in Europe!
You should really be more smart!
Ooops...smart Poles...not a think you have heard of often!
Fact, indeed. But never considered by an arrogant, self-centred Polish clogs. Their American 'protectors' are people of business and trade ; they will sell Poland to Germany and Russia and thus the Poles will NOT have ANY future in Europe. Simply, they will vanish!

I think one could nicely apply such logic to apply to the Brits. Are they Europeans or not? The argument has no basis in the case of the Ruskis.
When you next visit Amsterdam, Prague or Krakow, take a long look at the behaviour of your fellow Brits and try to tell me that they are worthy Europeans! There is no basis for even a discussion in the case of the Ruskis.

I suppose you belong to that "worthy" group of British slobs that frequent such otherwise pleasant places as Ibiza, Menorca and Majorca. Europeans eh? Good one!

Can you explain us what does that means?

Are you harbouring more prejudice?

I think you should explain that. Why are the Brits non-Europeans in your view?

And why aren't they worthy Europeans? I am really intrigued here!!

All I need to say here is that most Europeans seem to regard the Brits as very anti-European - even when they are talking positively about them. In addition almost every major British newspaper (which presumably reflects public opinion in the UK) is to say the very least, hostile to the notion that the UK belongs in Europe. Or is this news to you? If you doubt me I invite you to Brussels to see for yourself. You may be unpleasantly surprised.

You should have say European Union, not simply Europe.

In Europe, Britain has always been turned overseas, whereas other European contries are more 'continental'. Brits are different and want to be treated differently.

Our media are very anti-EU. As for politics, it seems that for good or bad, Britain will always consider the USA as their main ally. British politicians and most of British people do not trust other Europeans and even less continental governments.

China and Russia would like to eat Europe, Poland and all. They will use the 56 Muslim countries first to infiltrate, censor and deny Europe existence as Free. No where will liberty be more defended then in modern Germany. Probably the last light of hope for a free Europe in the 21st century.
Oh there will always be an England, but don't hold your breath.
