Political chess

First we reminded you of what Law and Justice (PiS) leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski thinks of internet users and then he starts blogging.

Later, Scott wrote about what could happen to the Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) if they formed a coalition with PiS, and now the Polish edition of Newsweek reports that such a coalition already exists in the little town of Pionki, which appropriately means "pawns" in Polish.

Are they reading us or somethin'!?

Anyway, unfortunately, it seems that the "grandmasters" of Polish politics are still the ones that decide where pawns should be placed. Local pawns. I mean politicians from both PiS and the SLD believed they could build a coalition that would get something done (like the PiS-SLD agreement that got rid of the rival Civic Platform (PO) in public media, for example), but alas no. Grandmaster Kaczynski heard about the idea and then gave a simple order.

"This coalition will be dropped," PiS's Marek Suski is quoted as saying.

Bishop takes pawn? Apparently, but whether it was only a gambit we will see in November after the October parliamentary elections.
