Some news from PiS-ruled Poland:
1. On Monday, Smoleńsk - the first movie about the 2010 Presidential plane crash - had its VIP premiere. According to reviews, the movie fully subscribes to the "It was a bomb!" conspiracy theory, even featuring a scene of an explosion destroying the plane.
The movie is officially endorsed by the current President. Which is, IMHO, somewhat akin to Obama (hypothetically) endorsing a movie about Bush being behind 9/11...
The movie hits the cinemas on Friday.
2. A bill that bans Sunday shopping will be debated in the parliament. The draft of the bill was submitted by some of our trade unions, but PiS seems favourable. The bill seems also to be fully supported by the Catholic Church.
Sadly, while the unions are rationalizing the bill as motivated by their care of workers' rights (but, if that's true, why aren't they lobbying for a ban on *working* on Sunday?), the Church's opinion seem to go more along the lines of "People shouldn't shop on Sundays, it's just ungodly! Let's forbid them doing so!"...
According to the bill, shop owners who make their employees work on Sunday, might even be sentenced for 2 years in prison.
