Letter to European Parliament

Dear Mr. Martin Schulz,  President of European Parliament                                     December 15, 2015
Willy-Brandt-Ring 1    D-52477 Alsdorf

Deutschland – Niemcy

With great amazement and indignation I have read your opinion about the “coup” in Poland. I really know my country better than you. I have lived in my homeland for 70 years already. I assure you that the elections for the President and the new government in Poland are not evidence of an absence of democracy.

The elections showed that most ordinary citizens of my country want change. The problem is that those, who hitherto had authority to govern, on this decision lost. Therefore, they do not want to surrender to the verdict of the election, and use for their interests the European Parliament. Under your leadership, Parliament is certainly busy with very important issues, including the length of a candle’s flame and the amount of water in a toilet’s tank.

There are no politicians today in Brussels with class, or people looking for the common good of the societies making up the European Union. Political correctness coupled with pettiness is not conducive to wisdom. It is a pity, as Mr. Chirac once said, that you also “lost the opportunity to keep quiet”.

I know that you will not change your position and will not apologize to Poles. Greatness is required to recognize one’s own mistake. Therefore, at the “winter holidays” (as you call Christmas),

I wish you prudence, wisdom and imagination.

+ Wiesław Mering, 

Bishop of Włocławek
