    Well that shows some sensitivity to the culture. Having said that, it's pretty much the same everywhere among dim semi-criminals;living off their roided-up bubble-butts.

    This. It's a huge problem in academic institutions, but slowly lessening. Cheating is NOT considered acceptable in any part of the education sector today, but it was considered acceptable culturally. It was an open secret. So these days there are checks, checks and more checks, just to make sure the work people submit really is their own work.

    It's a bugger to deal with and a lot of people were brought up believing that cheating in exams and papers was the way to get things done. Things have changed, but there's still echoes of this...

    Typical, the day I'm too busy with actual work and real life is the day a relevant thread pops up.

    It does help to have a bit of background information here. Kaja Godek is not, by any means, representative of the majority of Polish opinion. She is a PiS stooge and at the Polish equivalent of a gunging-ho IONA member. PiS are currently in government, and are anti-EU ( while Poland itself is strongly pro-EU, unsurprisingly, as Poland receives the largest amount of EU funding any EU country ) , very strongly Catholic and conservative, but, most importantly, have been disassembling the separation between church and state and any objectivity in Polish journalism, justice and education.

    This outburst was deliberate "click-bating" - it was a dig at Ireland because of the Brexit issue - PiS have stated that the best option in Brexit is to have a hard border between NI and RoI. PiS was not at all happy that no-one else agreed with them on this.

    In an aside, this is another typical PiS governmental member foot-in-mouth statement:


    The culture minister says it would be good if private German retailer Lidl were Polish because Poland hasn't been properly compensated by Germany for WWII.
    'We're entitled to reparations,' he says. 'Of course, it would be good if Lidl were Polish. After all, a consequence of WW2 is that there is a bit too much German capital.'




    For some background reading, I'd recommend "Notes from Poland" on both the web and Facebook..

    One more example of Pis's brand of doublethink:

    What are you basing these opinions on? Have you spent much time in Poland?
