Poland: Leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski Differs from President Andrzej Duda on Revisions to Judicial Bodies, Reorganizing the Supreme Court — Will Offer Counter-Proposal

Peace and Freedom

WARSAW, Poland — Poland’s top politician says he and the nation’s president differ on the shape of an overhaul of judicial bodies that is at the heart of Poland’s standoff with the European Union.

The head of Poland’s ruling party, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, made the comment hours before President Andrzej Duda is to present his proposals for reorganizing the Supreme Court and a top judicial body.

Duda has vetoed bills proposed by Kaczynski’s party and says he will hammer out his own proposals, angering Kaczynski.

Protesters see the ruling party’s plans as subjecting judges to political influence, in violence of EU rules.

Kaczynski said in an interview published Monday that his meeting last week with Duda over his proposals exposed a “far-going difference of views.”

Brexit Secretary David Davis will lead the UK team of negotiators into their fourth round of talks with EU officials in Brussels on Monday.

It will be the first opportunity for the European delegation to respond to Theresa May’s speech in Florence.

Mrs May aimed to restore momentum to a process that was stalling.

Key figures such as EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier described her tone as constructive, which should improve the atmosphere of the talks.

But EU negotiators will be expecting more detail on, for example, what payments the UK is prepared to make as it departs.

Next month, EU leaders are due to decide on so-called separation issues – including the rights of citizens, the Irish border and the “divorce bill” or financial settlement – to allow talks to move on to the future of…

Eyes on Europe & Middle East

Original Source: Written By Johannes Stern WSWS.Org

Just days before the federal election, the consequences of Germany’s return to a policy of war and militarism are becoming ever more apparent. At a meeting of the right-wing extremist Alternative for Germany (AfD) in the state of Thuringia at the beginning of September, the party’s leading election candidate, Alexander Gauland, called for Germany’s Nazi past to be seen in a positive light.

How to get the right to use lyrics in books

Today's Author

lyrics blogI imagine every writer has considered the use of song lyrics in their fiction. Music is so much a part of our lives. It can capture the mood, set the time period, connect the reader to a kind of collective memory.

I’ve always been told it couldn’t be done. Every author blog (like this one) and writer’s group I’ve ever known says it’s a headache best avoided. And maybe they’re right when it comes to most musicians, but I got permission from Ani Difranco. Here’s how:

  1. I found the email address of her management on her website.
  2. I ignored internet advice and skipped the legalese, writing a fan gushy request I didn’t honestly expect to hear back from.
  3. I got a reply from her management asking for more specifics.
  4. I replied with the legalese I should have included in my first email, along with more about my publishing…

The Florence flop – UKIP’s call to arms.

‘Is that it?’ said Florence

So, how was it for you, the Florence Flop? For me it was – I realised afterwards – exactly like watching England play football. An inescapable patriotic urge to hope for a good performance, followed by a long, slow realisation that once again it isn’t going to happen, that these people are not as good as they ought to be, that the other team is not going to roll over.

And finally the death of hope, and that head-in-hands moment when you realise they have done it to you again.

Thank you Prime Minister. Thank you also Lord Mandelson, Ken Clarke, Keir Starmer and all the assembled Remainers who were beaming with startled delight yesterday. Thank you Michel Barnier, Guy Verhofstadt and, especially, Emmanuel Macron. You have made the position absolutely, abundantly clear.
