Row with Poland symbolic of the EU crisis

Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydło said on Tuesday in the European Parliament that neither the restructuring of the Constitutional Tribunal nor the new media law contravened European regulations. The conflict between Poland and the EU reflects the division of the entire continent, the centre-left news magazine Polityka writes: "Today this line of conflict runs between the pro- and anti-Europeans. In the pro-European camp are the Christian democrats, liberals and social democrats, while the anti-Europeans include nationalists, populists and anti-liberals. Until now Poland has clearly belonged to the pro-European camp. But under the leadership of the PiS it is now crossing over to the camp of the EU opponents and striking out on the same path as Hungary under Prime Minister Orbán."
