from HARDtalk·

The European Union’s formative years were shaped by a Franco-German motor. Could it be that when the EU finally emerges from its prolonged debt crisis a German-Polish partnership might play a dominant role?

But do Poles really want to cede their hard won sovereignty to Brussels and Berlin?
