Poland approves law to tighten control over judges

Poland’s parliament on Friday approved a bill aimed at punishing judges critical of controversial court reforms. The controversial law has seen the governing conservatives say is necessary to avoid judicial chaos while the opposition called it a threat to the rule of law. The vote came just a few hours after the European Commission called on Warsaw to put off on approving the draft law.

The best thing that can happen to Europe is the death of the EU and its coming fast. An unelected body calling what is and isn't democracy is the essence of hypocrisy and tyranny. Now they want an EU army, I wonder what for????????

"...country would eventually need to leave [EU?] bloc." Is this a new way to leave EU without referendum? 🤔

The EU lacks the principles to stabilize Europe in the long-term. Its overall drives are money and a fear of war; the latter is understandeable, the former is generally a destructive foundation for a political entity without a much higher principle controlling it. But Europe's higher principles have been fading away over the past couple of centuries.

Judges appointed judges? Sounds like Poland's judiciary does need reform.

Seems weird to me that Poland has to get it's own laws approved by the EU first. Sounds very controlling, to put it mildly.
