Polish fortunes

A report on The World Tonight stressed the tensions in Poland: a new class of super-rich, 18% unemployment and an average wage of around £5,000 ($9,000).

The reporter, Johnty Bloom, stressed the corruption of Polish political parties, and cited as evidence that no party had formed a government for more than one term.

But surely this is - relatively - good news for what Norman Davies has in another context termed "The First Ally".

A country that throws out corrupt politicians every time is in - relatively - good shape.
