    The Euro Threat: Tusk’s Assault on Poland’s National Bank Exposed

    It has come to light that the ruling coalition is plotting a severe blow to Poland’s sovereignty by targeting the National Bank and pushing for the adoption of the Euro. Małgorzata Golińska, a member of the Law and Justice (PiS) party, minced no words when she underscored the detrimental impact such actions would have on Poland’s standing in the world.

    Allegations of National Bank Interference and Political Vendetta Surface

    Golińska articulated her concerns in an interview with Michał Rachoń on TV Republika, emphasizing that stripping the National Bank’s president of his authority would weaken the nation and send a signal of instability to international partners. She didn’t shy away from pointing fingers directly at Donald Tusk, asserting that his motives are crystal clear: to manoeuvre Poland into a position where it becomes more pliable to Western demands.

    Prime Minister Donald Tusk’s readiness to initiate proceedings against Adam Glapiński, the President of the National Bank of Poland, through a Tribunal of State, further corroborates Golińska’s claims. It’s a move that reeks of political vendetta rather than genuine concern for the nation’s economic stability.

    Golińska’s Warning Against National Bank Intrusion and Eurozone Entry

    Golińska astutely observed the pattern of the government’s actions, drawing parallels to its past dealings with various state institutions. She warned of a looming scenario where strongmen would storm the National Bank, echoing the government’s narrative of restoring normalcy while, in reality, undermining the nation’s interests.

    The overarching goal, according to Golińska, is to pave the way for Poland’s entry into the Eurozone, a move that lacks popular support and has been conveniently sidelined from public discourse. She highlighted the resilience exhibited by countries retaining their own currency during times of crisis, contrasting it with the vulnerability inherent in Euro adoption.

    Rethinking Poland’s Euro Membership

    Poland’s commitment to the Euro was made upon joining the EU, but recent crises such as COVID, inflation, and conflicts on its borders have prompted a reevaluation of this stance. Golińska stressed the importance of retaining the złoty, citing examples of other nations’ successful management of economic challenges.

    The lack of transparency surrounding the government’s actions regarding Glapiński’s removal underscores its authoritarian tendencies. Golińska criticized the administration for fabricating pretexts to fulfil its ulterior motives, emphasizing the detrimental impact such manoeuvres would have on Poland’s sovereignty.
