Duck and Brussels sprouts

Prime Minister Jarosław Kaczyński is using his first trip to Brussels to set the record straight

You might not know it, but there are some nasty rumors going around about Poland in the EU. Whispers in the halls of Brussels and Strasbourg can be heard accusing Poland of xenophobia, homophobia, and even anti-Semitism.Yucky stuff.

Fortunately, Prime Minister Kaczyński flew into Brussels yesterday to tell those nasty Brussels bureaucrats that all of that is absolutely, 100% untrue!

From theparliament.com:

"Don’t believe in the myth of anti-Semitic, xenophobic Poland," Kaczynski told a Brussels press pack.

"There are homosexuals in Poland who have very high positions in politics and even on the right of politics. This is a media thing, it is not real."

Well. That clears everything right up.

The PM isn't married, do you guys think when he was talking about homosexuals having very high positions, did he refer to himself???

I think this could be true :p

Well, that's what they say...

Some friends and I were having a laugh over that possibility today.

But it would seem pretty dumb to drop hints like that to the press, wouldn't it?
