When German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President François Hollande visited the European Parliament earlier this month, a Polish university professor addressed some polite remarks to them from the floor of that august body.
Green Infidel, who tipped us about the video below, sends this introduction to Prof. Ryszard Legutko:
First Farage and Le Pen gave Merkel a dressing-down in the European Parliament, and now comes this video of Professor Ryszard Legutko, the vice-president of the European Conservatives and Reformists group, and an MEP for the Polish Law and Justice party. Professor Legutko is also a professor of philosophy at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow (Poland’s most prestigious university), where for a long time he worked and lectured before entering politics in 2005.
The speech is in English, with Polish subtitles.
His speech was received with much applause — although not so enthusiastically by Chancellor Merkel.
