Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In Poland we've got the Kaczynski twins who are the 'mainstream' populists - hardline nationalist and demagogic but at least vaguely sane. Then there's the literal and ideological descendant of the 1930's fascists, Roman Giertych of the LPR. And finally Poland's wannabe Lukashenko - Andrzej Lepper of the vaguely left wing Samoobrona.  Currently the twins are in power, with the presidency and a minority government that is supported by the LPR and Samoobrona.  To make life more fun the main opposition is a doctrinaire neo-liberal party (PO), and the other opposition party is the post-communist bunch (SLD) - corrupt and completely cynical - more a self help network of ex nomenklatura types than anything else. I just love Polish politics. <snark>
