Today’s Economist reveals that one of the few Conservative parties in the European Parliament prepared to line up with David Cameron over the creation of a new Right grouping is the Polish Law and Justice Party, known by the acronym “PiS”. Its leader recently tried to stop a gay rights march in Warsaw. It wants to ban abortion and bring back the death penalty. It is “a great admirer” of the Common Agricultural Policy and supports state intervention in the economy. Is this the stupidest party in Europe? (Neo-fascists don’t count: they’re not simply dumb; they’re evil.)
