Politico confirmed what everybody suspected. Poland will not see a penny from the EC

 Journalists of the Politico website analyze the relations between Warsaw and Brussels, pointing out that the Polish authorities are not going to surrender in the dispute with the European Commission (EC).

"There are no indications that the European Union planned to pay out EUR 35 billion in loans and grants from the Reconstruction Fund," Politico said.

That confirmed what many in Polish media suspected. The EC planned to use this money to overthrow a democratically elected government whose only fault is that it is conservative. The leaders of the left-wing parties that are in the so-called "Total Opposition" were saying for a while that Poland will see this money as soon as they form the government.

In June, during her visit to Warsaw, the President of the European Commission said that the "green light" she gave to pay those funds comes with a list of conditions and that it did not mean an automatic disbursement of funds.

As von der Leyen explained, Poland must first meet three conditions: liquidate the Disciplinary Chamber of the Supreme Court, adopt changes to the disciplinary system of judges, and restore dismissed judges to adjudication. 

However, these are only part of the requirements, the so-called milestones, nobody knows the whole list, and it is constantly changing.

The promises made by German politicians in the EC are as good as those made to Ukraine and Poland by the German government.

Maybe the 'PolExit' would be a good thing for Poland.
