We have a war with the United States, with the European Union, with the Czech Republic for Turów, with Germany for history. In a moment we will run out of countries to insult and places where we could have a conflict – said Szymon Hołownia, leader of the Polska 2050 movement in “Fakt after Fakt”. – All the time an unlocked grenade remains in the hands of people who simply missed the PRL – assessed Hołownia.
Late in the evening, a group of Law and Justice MPs submitted to the Sejm a draft amendment to the Broadcasting Act. “The will of the legislator is that companies based in Poland cannot be controlled by entities from outside the European Economic Area” – it was written in the justification. Commentators agree that the changes are aimed at TVN’s independence. TVN24 is still waiting for the extension of the license by the National Broadcasting Council. The license expires on September 26, that is in 66 days. An application for its extension was submitted in February 2020.
KRRiT claims that the problem lies in the “ownership situation” of the TVN group. The station’s management wrote in a statement that in 2015 the National Broadcasting Council accepted the entry of American capital into TVN.
“Jaroslaw Kaczynski has now bought time to practice political corruption”
The leader of the Poland 2050 movement, Szymon Hołownia, referring in Thursday’s “Fakty po Faktach” to the issue of the draft amendment to the media law, assessed that “when it ends, we will probably see it in August”. – Jaroslaw Kaczynski has now bought time, to put it bluntly, to practice political corruption – he said.
In his opinion, in a situation where the Agreement of Jarosław Gowin, which is a coalition partner of Law and Justice and Solidarity of Poland in the United Right, may not support the draft in its current wording, Kaczyński may look for allies, among others, in the Confederation.
“Every regime becomes more and more aggressive when it enters its declining phase.”
As Hołownia said, the PiS leader “is a master of intimidation, as we have seen in the recent passing of PiS MPs and back to PiS, looking for hooks, in nepotism, in corruption”. – Why is he doing this? Because every regime, when it enters the declining phase, becomes more and more aggressive, more and more bizarre and dangerous in its actions, he argued.
According to the leader of Poland by 2050, “they [rządzący – przyp. red.] they have already opened all external fronts. “- We have a war with the United States, with the European Union, with the Czech Republic over Turów [elektrownię w Turowie – przyp. red.], with Germany about history. In a moment we will run out of countries to offend and places where we could have a conflict – he assessed.
Hołownia admitted that he did not know whether the politicians of the ruling option “would even decide to pass the draft media novel in the face of an unstable majority”. – However, anyway, you have to make it clear that the security grenade remains in the hands of people who simply missed the PRL – commented the TVN24 guest.
