“It is a time when evil has to be called evil,” said Krzysztof Szczerski, speaking for the party. “Mister prime minister, look at yourself in the mirror. You are like this alien which is sucking onto Poland and feeds on it.”

Mr. Tusk’s supporters did not try to hide their pleasure over the impact of the surprise maneuver.
“I am moved by the cries of the opposition,” said Slawomir Neumann, deputy minister of health. “For a few days, they have been talking about the vote of confidence for the government, but when this occurs, they say it’s too quickly. Big boys don’t cry.”
