How the Biden administration will affect the EU

"With the biden administration taking office in just under a month. You leaders a counting the days until they feel like they can have a new start with an american team. that's more committed to transatlantic relations this week. The us foreign policy chief. Joseph barrell reveal the agenda he hopes to pursue well joining me on the line from brussels. Is our correspondent. Teri schultz terry. It's not an exaggeration to say most e you leaders a hugely relief with the biden win and believe things are going to be different now. Where does the e u. side wants to start well and they've actually released this document now laying out where they believe. The most progress can be made in the fastest and most efficient way. And that's what you high rep josette burrell released yesterday. And they've got four areas where they want to start the europeans. They want to start with corona virus. Response making that again. A global effort with president trump having pulled out of the world health organization saying constantly america first america first when it comes to a vaccine. That's something that does not sit well with the europeans who are committed to making vaccines affordable and available to the entire world on climate. They are very much looking forward to president-elect biden making good on his campaign promise to rejoin the paris climate accord. That's something that suffers without. Us leadership and i think president-elect biden is is committed to doing that the third one is a little a little tougher trade and technology that you use third priority and that's one where you're not going to automatically see any. Us president stop protecting or trying to protect american tech giant's against for example e regulators who want to recoup taxes from from the multinationals. That's going to be somewhere where we we may not see as quick progress but on trade looking at the world trade organization where president trump is just continually attacked and and made it impossible for the wto to get reforms that the europeans also support. I expect that that will be one of the areas that there will be some quick progress and unwed burrell calls global action and he says this is working toward a safer more prosperous and more democratic world and they're hoping that president-elect biden will put more emphasis on human rights on rule of and on basic democratic values that the eu and the us due to a large extent share but is it realistic for the e. You just think that the biden administration shares these views simply going to sign onto this plan. Or i think europeans may be disappointed by the fact that foreign policy is probably not going to be the first thing on on president-elect biden's list he's got to deal with the corona virus that's just raging in the in the us and and the divisiveness that this campaign and actually the trump presidency has brought about in america and he's got to work on that before he can justify to anyone that he's going to be working on with with european leaders but he very much wants to do that. All of his statements during the campaign to to europeans. Were basically i understand. This is not the way the. Us you relationships should work and he will. He does share a lot of these views. He certainly will not be giving comfort to leaders. Like hungary's viktor orban or the polish government. That is rolling back the rights of women. He will have. He will have a few things to say about that. Which president trump left unsaid or probably didn't even believe

Why a New Abortion Ban in Poland is Causing a Furor

"Today in Poland where for five straight days. Now, streets across the country have been filled with protesters as we mark the swearing in of new Supreme Court, Justice Amy Coney Barrett, and wonder how the court will now see Roe v Wade Poland is an interesting case protesters. There are angry precisely because of a high court ruling on. Abortion last week, Poland's constitutional tribunal outlawed the practice in all but the most exceptional of circumstances as the world's Europe correspondent Orla Barry reports. The latest legal decision is now being widely condemned by women's rights, groups, Justin of it. The refs as a founding member of the abortion dream, team they're a well-known group of activists who says out in two thousand sixteen to de stigmatize abortion in Poland the dress had an abortion in. Two thousand six and even though she worked with an abortion support group called almost no one about your own experience for more than twelve years up to two thousand, eighteen I was talking about this as anonymous person. I was not showing my face I was afraid about my community for threats says, she worried what our neighbors would thank her. There's nothing unusual about women keeping their abortion secret in Poland more than one thousand. Legal abortions for carried out in the country last year but women's groups reckon that the number of illegal abortions or those performed abroad is closer to two hundred thousand. No one knows the exact figure the court ruling last Thursday. Permits Abortion only in cases of rape incest and the mother's life is at risk activists say that just adds to the stigma and it helps explain why women have been out protesting every day since. In more. So last night protesters poured red paint across the city's main bridge holding up signs that read you have blood on your hands, and this is war in the western city of Poznan demonstrators interrupted Sunday church services. Video posted online. A couple of dozen protesters are seen approaching the altar chanting we've had enough, but the refs ca says young people using such fury at the church is something new for Poland. There are very young women who are protesting chorus creaming on the on the priests in small towns. And like really today jurors, it is something which hasn't been seen on the streets before this is something new. What we see ninety percent of Poles identifies Catholic, and since coming to power in two thousand fifteen, the ruling law and Justice Party has promoted what it calls traditional Catholic values but recent surveys show the majority of Poles did not support more restrictive abortion laws. Activists say the new measures are a threat to women's rights in Poland Hillary Margolis is a senior. Researcher. With human rights, Watch under the Lawn Justice Party, we've seen repeated attempts to completely ban abortion also to obstruct sexuality education schools to really smear and undermine women's rights, groups and activists including those who work on violence against women and Margolis says, it's not just women's rights conservative politicians have in their sides the way they've used the concept of the so called traditional family to undermine women's rights but also lgbt rapes is very worry but in some ways has seen. Some success you they've managed to get people afraid and that is I think part of how they have kept power. But protesters say they will not be deterred several university faculties canceling classes tomorrow and some companies have announced a day off. So workers can protest Anthony in eleven. Scott is a sexual and reproductive health and rights activists based on more. So she says is not just young women who are taking to the streets taxi drivers joined yesterday form as join and. Some smaller towns and of the groups that has already joined the protest were actually the police officers that goes ing one of the provinces they just took their helmets off and they entered the crowd in order to participate. But not all police officers support the demonstrators that have been street clashes in Warsaw and Levin of SCO worries things might get more violent yesterday. The prime minister gave permission for the Military Police to join the police in the streets and they only do. You really believe that there is a huge risk of riots and the public turning islands. The Polish government has been accused of appointing judges loyal to the ruling party activists are hopeful that an international body like the European. Court of Human Rights could challenge the recent decision on abortion on that basis. In the meantime campaigners say they're worried about their future in Poland I asked just thrift Ska from the abortion dream, team if she's concerned about being targeted by authorities of cars every. Day that we are expecting them. So if there will be some kind of idea to close us, we will move abroad and we'll be still working will not stop for the rest says no matter what the government does women will continue to have abortions in Poland, and groups like hers will keep fighting for the right to do. So for the world I'm Morna Barry.

Poland's Top Court Tightens Strict Abortion Laws

"Loose. Highest Court has ruled that the only circumstances in which a woman may have an abortion is in the case of rape incest or if there is a threat to the mother's life, the EU has reacted swiftly saying such a decision is tantamount to a ban on terminations and such a violation of human rights which could put women's lives at risk. Tell us more. We Cross over to Warsaw. Now to join Joe Johanna pretends guy who's a political journalist for Reuters welcome back to the show you Hannah. Thanks for having to explain to us how did we get to this point where the the Polish Supreme Court with voting on abortion rights? So. Abortion has been a debate that's been ongoing in Poland for many years now, and it's not the first time that we're seeing women on the streets. Protesting limiting abortion rights in, Poland. But the accusation is that the Polish government, the ruling nationalist and decided that it should be ruled on as through the courts and not through parliament because it would potentially limit broader discussion about this at now, of course, the ruling government has not said that, but that if the accusation from opposition activists that by avoiding public debate in parliament on, this is just kind of sets the decision in stone by taking through the courts and the reaction has been pretty clear. This weekend we've seen protesters disrupting church services. We've had sit-ins. It's it's been very clear. What many women think Yeah absolutely I think. Every single day since the decision was made, there have been thousands of people, thousands of people on the street in all parts, of Paul, and not just in Warsaw and I think the protests are expected to continue this week. And tell us a little bit more about how the government has responded to this. I think the government is defending the stance in there. Saying this is a decision by a court. It carries weight and I you know this confirms a lot of the socially conservative values that said the law and Justice Party that's in charge in Poland has been seeking to confirm since it came to power in two thousand fifteen. I'm just tell us a little bit more. About some are saying that so many protests having being held in. Churches. I. Think many protesters staging sit ins at Sunday mass, and what have you and it's suggested that the Catholic church is Fall to involved in government policy in Poland could you explain that for us? So the ruling party does have a very close relationship with the church at the Catholic Church in Poland in many ways is more conservative than the Vatican and it really has been kind of the pinnacle a confirming socially conservative values on issues such as abortion, but also another issue such as the civil partnerships fraud ubt people So the church really death play a key role in kind of helping to confirm this world view that the law and Justice Party has been trying to. Confirm as well at through through its time in power and I think that's why people went to church on Sunday in protested because they felt that the church is a key part of this decision that this institution that really works hand in hand with the ruling party. One thing that people have suggested is that the European Union must step in more clearly here and so far as if it is seen as an attack on women's rights. It must act against one of its member nations. But unfortunately, we've seen what the European Union be things take a long time and I think that. It's. The European hasn't taken strong action in a lot of other cases I. mean the debate on the rule of law is still ongoing in the EU add. There's constantly discussions about how to place limitations on Poland, but I think the government has sense that not a lot of concrete action has actually been taken and I would say many critics say that the consequences from the European Union don't seem to be swift or strict enough. In data I mean look Poland has got a track record of having long debt running speech the you about attacks, judicial independence, human rights, the freedom of the press. What point do you think that there will be intervention for by the European? Union or is there just an acceptance in Poland that the EU will take action, but it is indeed to slow northern effective. I mean, there was a discussion. There is an ongoing discussion in the European Union about linking. Issues not just rule of law, but also anything that violates the treaties. With EU funding and I think that's a discussion that will continue for quite some time. This was something we saw what the whole at discussion the summer about the lgbt ideology-free downs if there was a way to cut funding from the European Union to those areas that declare themselves, lgbt ideology-free and I think you know the issue of abortion will also be part of that broader debate. So I'm sure the European Union is is likely to continue to discuss this to vocally condemn it and try to find a way to to take action. But it's just a matter of when that will happen and with what strength that will happen

Polish women protest new abortion restrictions

"And cities across Poland. Against the Constitutional Court ruling the band's almost all abortions, with exceptions only for cases of rape, incest or where the mother's health is at risk of the ruling outlawed abortion, even in the event of fetal defects. Which accounted for 98% of all illegal abortions carried out in Poland last year. Martin Lynn, partisan activist with Polish women's strike and has been organizing the protests. Where does Thie Court ruling leave women in Poland? What we're facing now are two ways of action. One is the doctors who actually already contacted us is organization that supports fight for abortion and declared that they will not actually comply with Mrs Trump's Gus announcement because they don't consider this a cart rolling. All of them are even prepared to go all the way with the criminal charges, if needed, because the state's obviously will try to impose this announcement is a court's ruling, and also there is a team over our lawyers that is tasked with preparing individual cases, but also general cases. To European Commission to European institutions, all kinds, of course, that we can rely on national and international. So now we go for the legal grounds. You go for the judiciary system to help us. We promote initiatives that provide abortions that support women who want to have an abortion. Either abroad or here in Poland, because we're talking about something that will be happening anyway. If the ban is there or not. The problem is that many women won't know that the fetus is damaged because now many of the doctor's just won't tell them during the tests because they will be afraid to be investigated if than some abortion happens or something happens earlier this week, we heard from a Polish government spokesman who Distance himself from this ruling, he said. It was a court ruling. But you are questioning the composition off the court that made this ruling. Am I right? I'm not the only person to question that. We are questioning it. Off course, the lawyers are questioning this. A European institutions that put a complaint finally. Against Poland in the European Court of Justice also questioned this. So we now have an example What happens if there is no independent judiciary is the rule of law is actually broken. We have in the living example off the decision. That is not a court ruling. And now we have to take all the forces to bring this to the light and to win this in court in the independent course. You're thinking about the legal and the medical challenges to this ruling. But where the protests going from here tomorrow we are protesting in churches outside of the churches. And we're telling the Catholic Church of Poland that is extremely happy with the bond that they think will be imposed in Poland that they are wrong with putting their own religion above women's rights. And on Monday we go carb locates and their old locates all over Poland, and on the Wednesday we strike because the police state is not working properly anymore with the panda. Mia was declared the economy crisis of and with the human rights crisis, so we might as well stop Poland for good until someone comes to them their senses. Got a

E.U. issues its first rule-of-law report, angering leaders of Hungary and Poland

"European Union has published today an audit of rule of law issues across its 27 member states, the first of what will be an annual review of Thie State of the blocks Democratic institutions as expected. There is criticism of judicial changes made by nationalist government's in Poland and Hungary in recent years, but concerns We're also raised about corruption in six countries, including Bulgaria. On DH Malta On Tuesday, The Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban called for the report's author, The You commissioner for values very Jehovah to be sacked All Europe correspondent Kevin Connolly joins us now from Brussels and Kevin just on hungry. How badly does the country come out of this report? There's nothing that will be unfamiliar to the Hungarian government in the charges, but they are not familiar concerns about the limitations of the freedom of the media and determination by the Hungarian government has seen from Brussels. To exercise undue influence of judicial process so that in effect the court system, the legal system in Hungary becomes less free. So it's not the freshness Of the charges, which will annoy Viktor Orban, the Hungarian leader. It is the fact that as you would have expected, they are front and center in the presentation of this case on the really fear in Hungary and in Poland, too. To a slightly lesser extent is the underlying threat, which is still present in this document, which is gaining currency and Brussels as an idea that if you really want to do something about this is the European Union. You have to link the spending of you funds from Brussels with adherence to basic rules about the rule of law, the freedom of the justice system on the freedom of the press. That's what really angers Viktor Orban on DH angers the Polish government, too. That's what they will always come out on the attack. That's why, of course, he's asking for the sacking or via your over the vice president, the European Commission. He certainly won't get that. But he wants to make this for his own domestic political audience about it about Hungary being under attack, rather than hungry, being criticized for falling short of international standards. How likely are other, You country's Tio follow up on on that threat. I think at some point, that idea is gonna have to work its way onto the political agenda. Because at some point I think the European Commission is going to be forced to conclude that persuasion simply doesn't work in these kind of cases. Viktor Orban Thie nationalist government in Poland, They're both going to pursue the same argument. That the European Commission doesn't understand what it's like to emerge from decades of Communist domination that certain measures are necessary that Poland and Hungary are not France and Belgium and the things of different so as long as The countries who are accused pushback in those terms. I think eventually the European Commission will be forced to acknowledge that it's going to have to use any financial levers at its disposal. It won't be quick because nothing involving the European Commission of the European Union is quick. But I think it's some point. It's inevitable on just briefly. The other countries mentioned I included Bulgaria immortal one of the concerns there is that about corruption. It's about both corruption and about shortcomings in the judicial process. In this special mention, I suppose for Bulgaria, Croatia and Slovakia who make both this and here's the takeaway from this. This is a 27 member institution. About a quarter of the member states, mainly former Communist states. About a quarter off them come in for some kind of criticism, so a bracing dose of freshness.

The rise of Poland's far right has important lessons for Americans

"Election of Donald J. Trump. We in the United States have become accustomed to a degree of fabulous. Um I've done more for black Americans than anybody. With the possible exception of Abraham Lincoln, the president, self aggrandizement provides the framework for his alternate reality. We have one of the lowest mortality rate way had 900 Deaths in a single day. You have the numbers place because I heard we had the best mortality number one low mortality, right? We are being given something I can't recall in my lifetime, a choice of realities. One that is mostly regarded as evidence based and one that you might call faith based that faith being in Mr Trump In either case, you have a sizable cohort to back you up. Truth has been displaced in many quarters by rage and fear. Over the past four months, we've had many opportunities to observe the impact of paranoia. When deployed by a fantasist in the White House in Arizona Man died after taking Clara Quien, his wife said that they heard about it from Trump's briefings. Are you gonna allow the government to tell you you have to wear a mask? Some believe these mask orders go against their freedoms will protect. All right, I will know asked me and I will not pay for antibiotics. Conspiracies of Sena numbers swell on Facebook and doctors warn, if left unchecked, they could undermine an effective vaccine. The death toll from the Corona virus pandemic has surpassed 150,000 in the United States. That's the highest number of fatalities in any nation by far. And accounts for nearly 1/4 of the recorded global. Told immediately after the 2016 election, I spoke with New York ER writer Masha Gessen, who, after having lived long under Vladimir Putin had some advice for anxious Americans trying to navigate the so called new normal. She explained that for the would be authoritarian, the lying is the point that the ability to create a reality flagrantly staring down conspicuous fact. Is a crucial component of building and sustaining power. And last fall boxes, David Roberts noted bluntly, where such a strategy left unchecked, could lead this sort of cultish, increasingly authoritarian movement takes over the country. In Russia and Turkey and Poland. Right's a disturbingly longer and longer list. We see countries that we thought were democracies devolve into this. In the U. S. So much has happened in the last few years that we thought would never happen. I think we should really loosen up our imaginations as to what can happen when a movement that is convinced that everything it knows and loves is in danger of falling apart movements that's thinking like that unconnected anymore to fax or reality. And got its hands on the power of the federal government is the basic recipe for democracy is falling apart. And so last fall on, the media producer Leia Feder reported on one of those places Poland, a young democracy teetering on unstable ground and where it's far right Nationalist government is intent on rewriting the nation's painful history. For almost a decade, Poland has been in the grip of a conspiracy theory what really happened when a plane crashed in a forest in western Russia, killing Poland's president and dozens of other government officials. The plane had been on route to commemorate another Polish tragedy, a massacre that had occurred in the very same location in 1940. 1973 documentary explored the mystery While the German army is advancing from the West, the Soviets crossed Poland's eastern front court in a method of Polish army collapsed, Um, surrendered. The victors, divided the country down the middle and imprisoned every soldier they captured. Russia took a 215,000 Poland officer Corps were never seen alive again. Many. What die near Smolensk, in a forest called catching after decades of opacity and suspicion on investigation in the early nineties, confirmed finally, that it was not Hitler. But Stalin, who had ordered the massacre. And so when, on April 10th 2010 a delegation of 96 Polish politicians and officials traveled from Warsaw to Smolensk. It was in service of remembrance and reconciliation. But what happened instead compounded the national pain. Poland's prime minister burst into tears when he heard the news today that his country's president was killed in a plane crash pilot tried to land in a thick fog at least twice missing the runway. And ignoring the control tower's direction to divert to another city. Not just losing the president of that country. The first lady, the ahead of the army chief of staff, the National Security Office head deputy Parliament speaker, the deputy foreign minister. It was a devastating national tragedy. What's more, the symbolic layering was undeniable. Ah, longstanding tragedy finally solved and a new one appears in its place. And yet, in the immediate moments and days after the crash, there was a kind of common shock. An Applebaum is a journalist and academic beast in Warsaw At the time of the 2010 crash, her husband was minister of foreign affairs in the Polish government, and there was pretty straightforward reporting. About what had happened. What was immediately clear There were people on the ground who saw the crash. So there was a kind of concensus initially about what had happened that it was a terrible Accident and that you know many people of value to the nation had died. But the story started to shift is the investigation into the crash proceeded. Investigators say pilot error was mostly to blame. It became clear that one of the causes of the crash was the fact that the pilots were under pressure to land. The president's delegation had arrived late for the plane. They were running behind schedule as they got closer to smell lens, which was even really an airport. It was a kind of airstrip in the forest. They began to be worried about the fog and the pilots weren't sure they could make the narrow landing. But according to black box recordings, Polish President Lech Kaczynski, head of the opposition party directed the pilots to do it was meant to be the launch of his reelection campaign. So there were cameras there which he knew, and he was very anxious to go under pressure, the pilots tried to make the landing. Instead, they hit a tree, killing all 96 people on board. The president's twin brother, the head of the nationalist right political party in Poland, same parties, the president He didn't like this story. It made the president look bad, more to the point. This is a terrible crash very near to a place where a Nurlita generation of poles were murdered by the Soviet state. Because of that eeriness. People immediately began to speculate that there was actually a different, deeper story that perhaps the Russians caused the crash. Perhaps there was a bomb on the plane. And conspiracy theories began to proliferate online. The president's brother, Nijinsky began openly alluding to them. Kaczynskis Law and Justice Party made unraveling the Smolensk conspiracy. It's key campaign promise once you had bought into their idea that there is a secret conspiracy, possibly involving the Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk. Possibly involving the Russians, and that lots of people high up in the state were implicated in some great big secret plot to kill the president. If you believe that Then you can believe a lot of other things. The point was to get people to believe in a kind of alternative reality to doubt institutions to doubt that the government was telling them the truth, and that was absolutely an attempt to help win an election, But it did more than carve out a new electorate. It created new divides in Polish society. Where one's Polish politics were split between Communists and anti communists around economic policy. Now it was over a vision of history. It was how you see Poland's place in the world. And whether you think secret dark forces air trying to undermine your country and whether you know you need to elect a government of Patriots in order to make sure that doesn't happen. Where you fell on that dividing line affected how you would vote and how you would understand politics for the next several years, And so when line justice one in 2015 it spawned a new kind of power a power based on the willingness to embrace the myth. They fired large numbers of Polish civil servants. Polish members of the foreign service. All kinds of people who work for the government also leaders and board members of state companies and they replaced all of them with people whom they were sure we're loyal. And one element of the loyalty test was belief in this Molinski myth. Smolinski conspiracy implied that there were dark, mysterious forces continuing to try to manipulate and undermine the Polish nation. It also drawn the larger story of a Poland continually attacked by outsiders and the valiant Polish resistance to threats past and present line Justice Road that narrative electoral victory. And then wrote its electoral victory to further consolidation of that narrative in service of Polish nationalism.

And ignoring the control tower's direction to divert to another city. Not just losing the president of that country. The first lady, the ahead of the army chief of staff, the National Security Office head deputy Parliament speaker, the deputy foreign minister. It was a devastating national tragedy. What's more, the symbolic layering was undeniable. Ah, longstanding tragedy finally solved and a new one appears in its place. And yet, in the immediate moments and days after the crash, there was a kind of common shock. An Applebaum is a journalist and academic beast in Warsaw At the time of the 2010 crash, her husband was minister of foreign affairs in the Polish government, and there was pretty straightforward reporting. About what had happened. What was immediately clear There were people on the ground who saw the crash. So there was a kind of concensus initially about what had happened that it was a terrible Accident and that you know many people of value to the nation had died. But the story started to shift is the investigation into the crash proceeded. Investigators say pilot error was mostly to blame. It became clear that one of the causes of the crash was the fact that the pilots were under pressure to land. The president's delegation had arrived late for the plane. They were running behind schedule as they got closer to smell lens, which was even really an airport. It was a kind of airstrip in the forest. They began to be worried about the fog and the pilots weren't sure they could make the narrow landing. But according to black box recordings, Polish President Lech Kaczynski, head of the opposition party directed the pilots to do it was meant to be the launch of his reelection campaign. So there were cameras there which he knew, and he was very anxious to go under pressure, the pilots tried to make the landing. Instead, they hit a tree, killing all 96 people on board. The president's twin brother, the head of the nationalist right political party in Poland, same parties, the president He didn't like this story. It made the president look bad, more to the point. This is a terrible crash very near to a place where a Nurlita generation of poles were murdered by the Soviet state. Because of that eeriness. People immediately began to speculate that there was actually a different, deeper story that perhaps the Russians caused the crash. Perhaps there was a bomb on the plane. And conspiracy theories began to proliferate online. The president's brother, Nijinsky began openly alluding to them. Kaczynskis Law and Justice Party made unraveling the Smolensk conspiracy. It's key campaign promise once you had bought into their idea that there is a secret conspiracy, possibly involving the Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk. Possibly involving the Russians, and that lots of people high up in the state were implicated in some great big secret plot to kill the president. If you believe that Then you can believe a lot of other things. The point was to get people to believe in a kind of alternative reality to doubt institutions to doubt that the government was telling them the truth, and that was absolutely an attempt to help win an election, But it did more than carve out a new electorate. It created new divides in Polish society. Where one's Polish politics were split between Communists and anti communists around economic policy. Now it was over a vision of history. It was how you see Poland's place in the world. And whether you think secret dark forces air trying to undermine your country and whether you know you need to elect a government of Patriots in order to make sure that doesn't happen. Where you fell on that dividing line affected how you would vote and how you would understand politics for the next several years, And so when line justice one in 2015 it spawned a new kind of power a power based on the willingness to embrace the myth. They fired large numbers of Polish civil servants. Polish members of the foreign service. All kinds of people who work for the government also leaders and board members of state companies and they replaced all of them with people whom they were sure we're loyal. And one element of the loyalty test was belief in this Molinski myth. Smolinski conspiracy implied that there were dark, mysterious forces continuing to try to manipulate and undermine the Polish nation. It also drawn the larger story of a Poland continually attacked by outsiders and the valiant Polish resistance to threats past and present line Justice Road that narrative electoral victory. And then wrote its electoral victory to further consolidation of that narrative in service of Polish nationalism.

Poland's judicial reforms put EU membership at risk, warns top court

"Poland's Supreme Court says the judicial reforms proposed by the country's right wing. Government are in violation of EU rules. And and could mean that oiseaux would be forced to leave the block well on the line from also Christian Davies. WHO's a journalist in Poland Chris? Thanks for for joining us. What are the proposed reforms that the government wants to push through what I think the important background? This is earlier. This in in the altern and the European Court of Justice issued a ruling saying that a body had been taken over by the Polish government am and had his loyalist Putin which which appoints punish judges had to be assessed by The Polish sue prem- cool to it helps to decide whether the judges in the the members of that body were appointed properly or not and and The Supreme Court of Potent then ruled that these People appointing judges would not am We're not legally appointed and what the government is now. Doing is responding by saying that police judges are not allowed allowed to declare other Polish judges illegally. Appoint judges as having as not being properly appointed and so the government is essentially doing is telling Polish judges that they're not allowed to criticize the illegal appointments of government loyalists am which is a escalation of the battle is being going on for several years The second point is at which is what the head of the Supreme Court was really referring to when she said that pardons that place in the EU is under threat was In order to preempt the fact that the European justice has been issuing rulings against will the pump has been doing with its own judiciary The Polish government wants to make it illegal for police. Judges to apply European law directly. They must instead Referred the question to the constitutional tribunal which is itself controlled by government lawyers. So what they're trying to do to shut down any avenues of not just descent but all the other court's ruling lead doing as legal so there's no actual mechanism for expelling an e you member so if the ruling Lauren Justice is this party doesn't back down on this. What happens next well at oversee it would be completely unprecedented? I think am him. What the head of the Polish cold is saying She's not saying it would be immediate. It would be instant that potent will be thrown out. She's he's actually just pointing out something which has been the case for a long time. which is The changes in the Polish judiciary giving the ruling party direct control. All of opposed judges are simply incompatible with the requirements of European law of European membership am at that is is already the case it would be even more stock if this legislation to go through and the comes a point when you can't Violate the basic conditions of of membership forever. So she simply saying that and the situation. The long-term is untenable which I think is correct and but no one has really got round around two to thinking what the consequence might be. Everyone I think both in Poland and in Brussels a hoping this will this issue would just go away. But it hasn't and I don't think it will I mean is the government likely to back down. Well people have been hoping especially I think in the European Commission and the that member states at every stage at the government will back down but actually this process started in the in around December. Twenty fifteen. So it's been going for four years and people have been talking about whether the Polish government might back down and for four years and they haven't so am I don't see why they would but now I mean one possible course of action for the e us to to not allow parents have voting rights. Well the mechanism the M depriving voting rights requires unanimity in the European Council which they weren't get and the the commission and the member states it's sort of went halfway up this path during the last commission and then realized they didn't have the political support to complete as they found themselves stranded so the next sort of way of doing it could be to restrict a funding through the next budget process but of course post war Poland has done quite cynically but quite cleverly is to a hold up the budget process on climate change. So am a potent knows that it's it may get less money over the over the judicial issue. And so what they're trying to do is demand more money on the climate issue needed to compensate for. It said what they're doing. The thing is dragging in all these other issues in order to make it extremely complicated and to make any effective action much much more difficult. I mean an the U. member since two thousand and four and it is a major beneficiary of e you funds. How does the majority of citizens Polish citizens feel about membership? Well if you am. Nearly every bit of survey data polling data suggests at very high support plus for leaving in in many surveys the highest level of support you membership in the of any member of the EU. The problem is not so much that people in principle The support meme should the the. It's the the Polish people have now twice elected a government which does not share at basic liberal democratic mctighe values which underpin the European Union so at which is why these Control see why these fights keep keep coming up so so even if one hundred percent of Poles wanted to stay member of the EU you can only violates the fundamental European values and laws for so long and that's what the the head of the Supreme Court was trying to say. Do you think finally we could see some kind of brexit contagion. I mean his Poland lightly to leave leave voluntarily. I don't think so simply because there's no public appetite title for it and a lot of Polish as people at whatever. The views on the judiciary don't really believe that there's any imminent threat opponent leaving the European and I think that's correct. I don't think the threat is imminent because it would be such a catastrophe and in many ways worse Problem for the EU than in Britain leaving. And but I I can't see any resolution to this quickly and it's it's been going on for many many years and it may be that supported. The government may start to reach this conclusion that they can't actually implement that program. They want which is actually a restoration of a form of authoritarianism opponent as long as you members visit and that is true at whether they drool the natural conclusion and start to advocate. Leaving Is another question but for now they Rather trying to do is simply to comment discontent discontent with the EU but not necessarily to support departure but that's a very dangerous game to play Christian. Thank you very much. Indeed that's Christian Davies. Speaking to us from

"You've almost missed the point because you will have hit some kind of political dead end by the time that becomes a technical discussion, Charlotte. I think we're a fairly long way from that point where at least concerned indeed, I think we're fairly long way from that point with any European nation. However, troublesome they have been, but there have been notable ructions between the European Union slash European Commission and a few Member States in recent years, most notably, Hungary, and Poland. Is there? Something in common. Or is. There a recurring theme when the EU has difficulties with its members or other as many difficulties as there are members. Well, they sent in the launch proceedings across a whole range of. Of topics from taxation to the single market all sorts of topics. But I think women looking at the cases of Hungary and Poland those really stand up because they're very much about rule of law about human rights about these. These core values at the heart of the European Union, and Hungary in particular is a very interesting case because since think to all band came to power in in two thousand ten we've really seen a backslide two or three -tarian rule there, which the EU has actually failed to prevent we've seen a systematic attacks in the free press and civil society in Russia out, your judges and some pretty gross human rights violations against refugees and migrants says well now the EU has launched these infringement proceedings as against Hungary and some have caused open to back down on certain measures. But it hasn't changed the overall direction of the or bang government's able direction it's going in. And I think that's quite interesting to look at why I mean, perhaps they have been applied in a rather, arbitrary fashion. They've been very slow moving. So I think the case of hunger. Suggests that maybe there's some sort of a fool need in those proceedings. And if we look at Poland, no, we're seeing almost a replica of what happened in Hungary, the polish government actually agreed to change a law which had load the retirement age of judges. The idea was this law would allow the polish ruling Conti to get rid of more resistant judges into to stuck judiciary with with their allies. Now, the European Commission did take them to the European Court of Justice on this yesterday, the polish coach agree to repeal that law. Now, what's interesting is hungry to the exactly the same thing in two thousand twelve it was almost exactly the same case involving the lowering of the retirement age is judges and then what happened Orban back down. But he's since got onto do many many other things which appear to being in contravention of e rules and regulations. So it will be interesting to see where this goes with Poland as well. Because we're seeing many many reflections what we saw in Hungary at the last few years, Charlotte. Do you think there's any danger or possibly more to the point? Do you think that the you think says any danger? Of contagion of this sort of behavior of the sort you've described there from Poland and Hungary, because if more countries realize not only that they can more or less do as they please. But they can in fact leverage popular resentment whether justified or otherwise against the to enable them to do as they pleased in this likely to be more of this sort of thing than not isn't the well. Yes, of course, I mean, that's that's obvious. Really, isn't it? If you don't punish somebody for doing something wrong. Other people will will do the same thing. And I think I covered the refugee crisis a lot, and I've seen this with the treatment of asylum seekers migrants and refugees. I mean going back way before the start of the refugee crisis. There you see you countries where contravening the European Convention on human rights in times of the detention of asylum seekers the treatment of asylum seekers and no action was taken in other countries would look at this and think we'll edging that we can do that. And it just contraband country started detaining asylum seekers on a regular basis. And so when the two thousand and fifteen crisis happened. Well, the stun is what was so low really became very very bad situation. And it wasn't until then that the European Commission actually started taking action that with that point. It was always too late. So we certainly went action isn't taken it in bulletins on the nation's to to do the same thing..
