Today I'll buy Polish vodka

A plane carrying Polish President Lech Kaczynski has crashed. Mr Kaczynski was on board along with his wife Maria and several senior government figures including the army chief of staff Gen Franciszek Gagor, central bank governor Slawomir Skrzypek and deputy Foreign Minister Andrzej Kremer.

They were in Russia to mark the 70th anniversary of the Katyn massacre, when the communists killed thousands of Poles. One of hundreds of massacres and mass graves littering the Russian landscape curtsey of socialist policies.

So a president (and Eurosceptic) seriously disliked by Russian authorities is together with the army chief and other dignitaries on his way to commemorate lots of dead Poles by the hands of leftie Russians, they flew a Russian plane (Tupolev 154) and they end up being crispy corpses themselves on Russian soil…

So it is not unlikely that conspiracists will be watching this right now cooking up some plot about shape shifting relatives of the British Queen psychically channeling the Spirit of Stalin to bring down the plane to start WW III.

However there are no indications so far of foul play, just an ironic demise of many of the top wigs in Polish politics, which of course will cause some serious internal Polish problems and probably won’t do any good for the financial markets when they open on Monday. Another story like this during the weekend adding to the Greeks getting sucked into a black hole of despair and we’ll see a market crash next week.

I’ll be watching this closely with popcorn and some polish vodka…


  1. Detta luktar beställningsverk från Kreml på mils avstånd. INGET sker i Ryssland utan Kremls vetskap, så har det varit sedan 1917. Ryssland har under Putin/Medvedev igen blivit aggressivt och stormaktsdrömmande, och som vanligt så gör Ryssland det på Ryskt sätt: hela östeuropa ska inlemmas igen i dess sfär. Framtidsvarning utfärdas...

  2. Det är andra gången jag ser exakt (ord för ord) samma kommentar som den apocalypse nowish här nedan skriver - lägger ner disinformationen, det finns inga bevis, det finns inget som pekar på att några "beställningsverk". Återgå till att spela Counterstrike eller vilket dataspel du nu lever ut din världsbild i genast, din tönt.

  3. Inte mitt problem om folk snor min text eller kommer fram till samma slutsats. Om du tror detta är verket av ödlor från en annan dimension får du gärna tro det. Själv ser jag inga som helst indikationer på något monstruöst här.

    Men du får gärna utveckla din tanke medan jag spelar vidare...

  4. Kaczynski was to have talks with Putin to renegotiate their gas suppy contract. Kaczynski wanted Poland to become less reliant on Russian gas.

    I guess that won't happen now. That'll be a mighty coincidence, don't you think so? And what will the BBC have to say about that?

    The Russians would never force down a plane filled with NATO people going to a memorial to commemorate slaughtered people. Not a snowballs chance in hell that would happen. No, if this is some kind of a plot, which I highly doubt, it is not the Russians that are behind it, at least not their government.
