EU needs Plan B for Greece

If the negotiating partners in the debt dispute continue on the present course Greece will end up outside the Eurozone, the conservative daily Dziennik Gazeta Prawna warns and calls on the EU to develop a Plan B: "The possibility of Greece being thrown out of or withdrawing from the Eurozone is becoming increasingly real. But if that happens it won't be only the Greeks who are to blame. ... It's not even clear if the austerity programme the troika wants to impose on Greece will be at all effective, or could actually be counter-productive. Even the IMF admitted a couple of months ago that it hasn't precisely calculated the negative impact of cutbacks on GDP. And the experiences in other countries don't allow for clear conclusions. ... The problem is that the proponents of a tough stance on Greece have only planned for the country being booted out if the negotiations fail."

The Wall fell thanks to Solidarność

The daily Dziennik Gazeta Prawna reminds readers that the Wall would never have fallen without the Polish Solidarność freedom movement: "It's difficult to discuss the facts. And the fact is that the Berlin Wall came down spectacularly. But it wouldn't have happened if it hadn't been for Solidarność [the Solidarity trade union], the strikes at the Gdańsk Shipyard, [the Polish freedom fighter] Lech Wałęsa, the round table [at which the communists and the opposition negotiated the transfer of power in Poland] and the elections of 4 June 1989 [the first half-free elections in Poland]. Nowadays 9 November 1989 symbolises the fall of communism for the average Western European citizen. And today this belief is reaffirmed because German Chancellor [Angela] Merkel has organised lavish celebrations to be attended by all the major international figures except [US President] Barack Obama."
