“Citizens need to know where a given politician stands politically; anyone who wants to be a politician should have a microchip and all the information about him should be on that chip: how much he’s worth and who he’s sleeping with.”
—Ex-president and Nobel Peace Prize winner Lech Wałęsa

“You had better learn Russian and learn fast, because after we take power, you will have to jump over the fence to the Russian embassy pretty quick.”
—Antoni Macierewicz, a senior member of the right-wing opposition Law and Justice (PiS) party, overheard talking in parliament to Artur Dębski, from the socially liberal Your Movement party

“At the time, only one officer with the rank of general in the Polish army had not been trained in Moscow—and that was the bishop in charge of the army’s military chaplains.”
—Jacek Merkel, the minister responsible for national security during Lech Wałęsa’s presidency from 1990 to 1995, on the state of the Polish military shortly after communism fell in 1989

“This is a very good result... the fact that the poll took us into account at all is a very important signal that we are seen as a political force with potential.”
—Jerzy Wasiukiewicz, leader of the radical right-wing National Movement, on hearing that the grouping scored 0 percent in an opinion poll held in the run-up to May’s European Parliament elections
