FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Europe’s values on the line? Poland in showdown over rule of law” – below is their description.

Can you do a ‘Brussels fudge’ on this one? European Union summits are renowned for the ingenious ways devised to blur the lines and horse trade on hot button issues. Those light-night compromises are what keep the 27 at the bargaining table until next time. Either Poland stops defying the prerogatives of the European Court of Justice and respects protection of basic rights for all or Brussels sits on nearly 24-billion euros of pandemic recovery funds that Warsaw was counting on.
