President Kaczynski’s body is driven from the airport past crowds of mourners in Warsaw

“Sophie and I go and see the coffin containing, notionally at least, President Lech Kaczynski’s body file past the crowds of mourners on Zwirki and Wigury street – a street actually named for a pair of aviators who died in a plane crash also. This is the main road from Warsaw Airport to the centre. All 7 km of the route to the Presidential Palace from the airport was packed with Warsaw residents paying their respects.

Unfortunately Maria Kaczynska’s body could not accompany her husband’s body – it has remained behind as have the other passengers, and a place is being prepared in Moscow where relatives will go and identify the bodies of the deceased in accordance with Russian law.

Poland had too many successes and was too conservative under Kacynski’s leadership for many people’s liking. There are too many people who begrudged a conservative state having such success in avoiding recession, not wasting money on phoney drugs at the behest of the WHO and remaining a country where abortion is not legal, Islam is at a record low in Europe, and where preference is not yet given to homosexuals over heterosexuals. This record is too much for certain people to take. That’s why there has to be a very careful inspection of everything that happened that day, and on the run up to that day, and many questions asked. My own question is – is it normal for the chief banker of a nation to attend an essentially military remembrance day? Or is it just that Slawomir Skrzypek did what it took for Poland to side-step this planned and choreographed recession? Maybe he wasn’t supposed to have made Poland the only country not to need to report a recession. Maybe that’s why he got invited to something which has nothing whatsoever to do with banking, and met his doom alongside Kaczynski. They probably would have got Ewa Kopacz on there too, if they could possibly have justified it.

Let’s remember that our way of life is something that many other people would like to take away from us by stealth, and let’s remember to vote accordingly in the coming elections…”
