We Boggart Bloggers get tired at times (you've probably noticed our occasional absences, but for the past 18 years since we started out first venture on a humble little platform called blog.co.uk (part of a group run by a couple of German guys, Wilken and Sommer,) which became very successful for us, at its peak getting 30,000 page views per day, which is not spectacular by gloval website standard but we, a bunch of people just doing it for fun.
It was fun, but over the years the sensation has become jaded as we just seem to go round in circles, climate crisis, economic crisis, war, existential threat to humanity scare story of the month, war, mass immigration, societal breakdown etc. etc. Yet nothing ever seems to change.
No wonder it's called 'The News Cycle'.
Well here we go again with the latest wave of mass immigration. But at least this article from a Polish news site puts a different perspective on the problem. Rather ironic really that just a few years ago right wing commenators in Britain were whining about Polish immigrants to our nation, now the Poles are getting upset about new EU rules directing third world immigrants to Poland. The Poles have a point though, as they resist this latest bureaucratic overreach from Brussels:

It’s about changing the ethnic composition of Central Europe’ – Poland urged to hold a referendum on the EU’s new forced migrant quota policy
“Let’s not kid ourselves. It is not about just 2,000 in the first tranche. It’s about securing a system through which they can process 20,000, then 200,000 and finally 2 million (migrants),” writes an influential Polish magazine editor
A top Polish magazine editor is calling for the Polish government to hold a national referendum on the EU Pact on Migration and Asylum, warning that the new law, which allows for the forced relocation of migrants to countries across Central Europe, is going to radically change the ethnic composition of the countries most opposed to mass immigration.
“The European Union, using legal tricks to bypass the European Council, is trying once again to make all EU states take in relocated migrants. A decision taken in violation of the treaties was adopted despite opposition from Poland and Hungary,” writes Jacek Karnowski, the editor of the influential Polish conservative weekly magazine Sieci
“No doubt the European Parliament will endorse this madness. Let’s not kid ourselves. It is not about just 2,000 in the first tranche. It’s about securing a system through which they can process 20,000, then 200,000 and finally 2 million (migrants),” he continued.
“This is not about migration. It’s about changing the ethnic composition of Central Europe, so it has the same ghettos and ‘no-go’ areas as in the West.”
The new law must now only pass the European Parliament, where it is expected to do so by a large majority. Once in effect, then countries have two options: either accept migrants being relocated from other EU countries or pay a massive fine of €20,000 per rejected migrant. As Remix News previously reported, these fines could quickly add up to billions for countries.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has vowed to oppose the migrant quotas. Morawiecki has said that Poland will not only not accept any forced migrant relocations but would also refuse to pay any fines for rejecting the migrants.
Meanwhile, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán wrote on Twitter last week, “This is unacceptable! They want to turn Hungary into an immigration country by force!”
The Polish editor Karnowski, along with other prominent academics, intellectuals, policymakers, and politicians, is urging the Polish government to launch a national referendum on the issue.
Karnowski is calling on the Polish government to “stand firm.” He says in his opinion piece: “It must put forward opposition not only from the government but also the president too, and that stance must be backed by the people.
“This is why I believe it is right to hold a referendum on the matter — a referendum on how Poland is to look in the future. The people have the right to have a say on whether they want their towns and cities to look like those in Germany.”
