    Poland will never leave the EU. Rather Ukraine may end up joining in time and make it worse for the EU.

    You are reasonning with the old trend of evolution, now number of country in EU will decrease because integration will be stronger and some country will not agree.

    That will only result in a deadlock, they won't leave. Isn't Poland getting a lot of money for just staying in the EU? It receives 3x its own contribution.

    You will have to make recommendations that will be fair to everybody and not just favouring rich countries.

    Rather Poland is doing well, EU should support its rise.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/05/opinion/poland-economy-trump-russia.html
    The I.M.F. has a complex definition of “advanced,” but a common thread is that all the nations have a per-capita income of at least around $15,000. Since Poland completed the transition from Communism to democracy in 1991, its economy has been growing at an average annual rate of 4 percent and, remarkably, has not suffered a single year of negative growth. In those 25 years, Poland’s average income has risen to near $13,000, from $2,300, and it is now on pace to pass the $15,000 mark by the turn of this decade.

    http://www.thenews.pl/1/12/Artykul/324007,Moody’s-strongly-upgrades-Poland’s-GDP-growth-forecast
    The Moody’s rating agency has strongly upgraded Poland’s 2017 GDP forecast to 4.3 percent from an earlier projection of 3.2 percent.

    Instead of throwing so much money towards China, EU should work towards shifting many jobs to Eastern Europe. Particularly Poland and even Ukraine. Ukraine can handle low cost jobs.

    The EU believes it owns Poland because it gives them money.

    Kicking Poland out will also lead to even the elites turning against the EU because the cheap labour will be gone.

    Europe hits Ireland over $15B in unpaid Apple taxes; Luxembourg liable for $294M in Amazon taxes

    The European Commission under Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager definitely means business.



    And on Luxembourg/Amazon, the tax breaks that the country gave to Amazon were overlooking the company's profits, she noted.

    "Luxembourg gave illegal tax benefits to Amazon. As a result, almost three quarters of Amazon's profits were not taxed. In other words, Amazon was allowed to pay four times less tax than other local companies subject to the same national tax rules," she said in a statement. "This is illegal under EU State aid rules. Member States cannot give selective tax benefits to multinational groups that are not available to others."


    We are reaching out to both Amazon and Apple, as well as the tax authorities of both countries, for comment. Although it is the states that are getting hit with the bills, the idea is that it will put pressure on these companies as well, so they will likely still continue to play a role in how this gets defended and negotiated.

    That's not really the point. Okay, the referendum wasn't official but people should be allowed to express themselves without 900 of them being beaten.

    The EU condoned this too.

    Yes it is. There should not be special privileged recruitment for people simply because they're from an ethnic minority. Black lives do not matter anymore than white lives.
