Since the results are in, all I can say is: so what? It doesn’t change a thing for us Silesians. The gorole (non-Silesians, mostly in Warsaw) will continue to persecute our nationality and our culture, rob us of our industry, and impose their people as leaders of our towns and cities, thus causing ...

Seems that went totally above your head. If you want to be in denial over how state homophobia, state propaganda, having no judicial independence, and having paranoia against western European human rights norms, is akin to Putin's Russia, then that's up to you. So, San Marino is basically Putin's R...

Well, if Duda has his way Poland will be joining the Russian Federation soon enough (culturally if not politically), as Poland's ruling party will just grow more and more hostile to Germany and their other neighbors.

Where are you getting this theory from? Instead of quoting 2015, you could at least be honest enough to use the June 2020 runoff vote: Trzaskowski also did much better among Poles voting abroad, who tend to vote more liberal (with some exceptions, such as the United States, where Duda came first). ...

Tuesday is being put as the date for the official results to be at least mostly in. What has also been pointed out or speculated about by media is that the courts are rigged by the ruling party, so if the result is close Duda could use the courts to rig the election and still claim victory - which ...

Because it isn't over by a long shot as the exit poll margin of error is 2% and overseas votes still need to be counted. someone else said overseas vote is enough it could decide the election.

It is unlikely that Poland will have any results today, and given how close the vote is overseas votes could make the difference, and overseas voters don't favor Duda. Though if Duda wins, I guess the EU can say hello to the newest nation in the tin-pot dictators club within the next year or two, m...

All I can say as a Silesian is that Warsaw (and Poland) sucks. I don’t care who wins or loses this election, because it means more of the same for us Silesians. More exploitation and destruction of Silesian land. More closure of our (relatively) well-run industry. More marginalisation. And more des...

Just for context, in 2015 when the polls were 49% and 51% on election night one minute after ballots closed when the poll was released, the loser conceded the election before the results. Given that Duda is leading, it's extremely unlikely. Exit poll is in about 40 min anyway. The exit poll came ou...

Keep thinking that if Thatcher wasn't only obsessed about getting profits in China, HK could have had a plebiscite vote over having independence or being controlled by a communist dictatorship. Hong Kong was after-all controlled by the Qing Dynasty, and the agreement was with them and not the CCP or...

Visiting HK will be exactly like visiting the mainland, where any foreign citizen is a hostage-in-waiting if the Chinese government is angry at the government in question.

Normally when a government gets in for a term, they get in for another, as we saw with Helen Clark, and then John Key. Labour + Greens is polling a lot better than they did last time, so I'd suspect they have a good chance of governing alone on current numbers. I find that pollsters always hilarious...

[...]what do you think the best timeline wouldve been to preserve HK? Obviously US leading the charge on placing economic sanctions on China but would that really have helped by itself? Realistically, they'd have had to do a deal back in the 90s that wasn't just a sleazy way out for Thatcher to rak...

Xi played the US, EU, and UK and won, as he correctly calculated they would be paper tigers over this.

I joined for a few days and left Reddit, as it is a silly place full of the selective moderators of petite fiefdoms AKA Sub-Reddits.

Why is it wrong to tell people not to use NSToday? It’s not like we said ‘we are going to raid you if you have relations with NSToday’. Yet. Y'all are so shook over this I wouldn't be surprised if you did do that. Raiding is illegal by law. Not that saying, "don't be ridiculous" is going ...

Well, jeez, man, let's not get dramatic. Lol. I don't think we're in "cancel NSToday for life" territory. These things involved leaks, but they are not comparable. And NST publishing these leaks as an independent news source, as I've said, is a little bit skeevy, but not a really hard hit...
