“At first, they’d wait on you hand and foot, but after a while the waiter started to ignore you, you’d have problems retrieving your coat from the cloakroom, and you’d find a hair belonging to the cook in your soup.”
—Marek Migalski, an Eurodeputy from the rightist Poland Comes First group, in an open letter to the governing center-right Civic Platform (PO), comparing that party’s six years in power to a visit to a restaurant

“It may be hard to believe but people in Poland have actually been persuaded that politicians are mainly there to deal with issues such as in vitro fertilization and gay marriages.”
—Ryszard Bugaj, an economist and politician, former leader of the leftist Labor Union party, on the policies of the current government

“I know of one ex-MP who took a job as a movie theater usher after two years of unsuccessfully looking for work.”
—Bolesław Piecha, a deputy from the opposition Law and Justice (PiS) party, calling for a special pension bonus for retired parliamentarians

“Everything our troops did was designed to liberate [countries from German control]; we were carrying out a peace-building mission.”
—Irina Yarovaya, chairwoman of the Russian parliament’s Security Committee, while proposing a fine or a prison term of up to five years for anyone accusing the Red Army of committing crimes during World War II
