PolBlogcast: Warsaw Bomb Alert Interview

PolBlogcast: Warsaw Bomb Alert Interview

Another PolBlogcast

In this PolBlogcast, we interview Newsweek (Polska) journalist Wojciech Rogacin about yesterday's bomb hysteria in Warsaw.

A few issues came up, for example, did Mayor Lech Kaczynski squander a golden opportunity to make peace with a part of the Polish electorate with his rather ambiguous comments regarding the connection between the dummy bombs and claims of responsibility by a radical gay group (Gay Power Brigade)?

Was this a staged event by the government itself? Will this event actually bring sexual minorities and more liberal leaning Poles together as a voting bloc?

How well prepared was Warsaw for such an attack had it been genuine? Where were you when you heard the news? How much is the government doing to prepare its citizens for such a situation? Did you feel well-informed by authorities?

Do you think the EU could give more support? Was this story buried by the world media?

As always we invite your comments!

This interview was conducted by mobile phone and so we apologize for any problems with quality.
