Polish elections

These things creep up one. There are to be important elections in Poland in a fortnight from yesterday. This infographic helps explain the differences between the main parties. All groups active in the "leave/remain" EU debate here will take an interest in the outcome, because there are obvious differences between the conservative and socialist contestants.

There are issues which bind the parties, though. In a country dominated by the Roman Catholic church, abortion and even contraception are off the agenda, and both support the coal industry.
