President stuck in Mongolia after receiving doctorate
President Lech Kaczyński, scheduled to be in Japan, is stuck in Mongolia as his plane froze over on the runway at Ulan Bator airport. The head of the President’s Office announced that the visit continues with only a slight delay as the President has hired a Mongolian plane to take him to Japan, leaving the Polish government plane in Mongolia to defrost after temperatures of -10 degrees Celcius at night. The President perhaps was able to spend time in the waiting room admiring the honorary doctorate he received from the National University of Mongolia in Ulan Bator. He may well have entered into the spirit of the event and donned the traditional yellow and blue gown he also received (Gazeta Wyborcza, p. 4; Fakt, p. 4, 5; Rzeczpospolita, p. A11)
We’ll skip wondering what kind of doctorate the Mongolians are bestowing on El Prezidenski and go straight to wondering how someone with such avian connections can possibly be so unlucky with airplanes? Wasn’t too long ago he couldn’t find a plane to take him to Brussels! :-)
Meeeeanwhile, at stately Duuuuck Manor…….
PiS boycott Palikot’s commission
Law and Justice (PiS) declared that they will not participate in the “Friendly State” Sejm commission led by PO deputy Janusz Palikot. This way the opposition party wants to boycott the PO deputy who openly criticizes the President. They said that they will rejoin the commission as soon as Palikot is no longer its head. (Rzeczpospolita, p. A5)
Am I right in thinking that Palikot is openly gay, or at least homo-friendly? Am I also right in remembering that either Romulus or Remus has a Tinky Winky phobia? Am I putting two and two together and making five?
