The last two sentences in this article are nice to see:

While a younger generation of Poles increasingly believe the
EU is economically unjust - and think their country should
quit the bloc as soon as possible.

Young Poles told Express.co.uk they wanted an end to rule
from Brussels, arguing the EU is an archaic institution that
should be dismantled.

I wish young people in more EU countries had this same
opinion.

EU in crisis amid Polexit fears: Poland 'could LEAVE bloc
over refugee row'
POLAND could leave the European Union as the result of a
prolonged row over refugees, an expert has claimed.

Last week, the EU moved to punish Poland over its refusal to
accept refugees by taking away its voting powers in the
European Council.

But if the row escalates much further it could push Poland
out of the bloc, according to Renata Mienkowska, a political
scientist at the University of Warsaw.

Ms Mienkowska explained the EU is unlikely to be able to
punish Poland, which has refused to accept refugees into the
country since the refugee crisis began in 2015.

It will need a unanimous vote by all other EU members to ban
Poland from voting on the European Council.

But the bloc is unlikely to achieve this, given the EU has
also moved to punish Hungary and the Czech Republic for the
same transgression, and the three nations are likely to back
once another.

Ms Mienkowska told Die Zeit: "The EU has tried to intervene
on several occasions, but too little and too late. "Unanimity is needed for the withdrawal of the right to vote
in the European Council - it does not exist because Hungary
is on the side of Poland. "Only action against both countries at once would work. But
within the EU people still shy away from this last resort."

Given this option probably will not work, the next step
would be to bring Poland in line on the refugee issue by
twisting its arm financially.

But this could have the opposite effect to what the EU
desires, and send the Polish government out of the EU
entirely.

Ms Mienkowska said: "If need be, it would be possible to
intervene by restricting EU funds.

"However the government may have no interest in remaining in
the EU after 2020, after the next parliamentary election and
at the beginning of the new EU budget period. If it does not
pay off financially, Poland could say goodbye.

"It hurts me to say that, but an EU exit from Poland is
absolutely possible."

She said she did not believe prime minister Mateusz
Morawiecki wanted Poland to still be in the EU in three
years' time.

The refugee dispute is the latest in a series of clashes
between the EU and Poland's ruling Law and Justice party.

In his first policy speech since being sworn in as prime
minister, Mateusz Morawiecki said he was opposed to a
multi-speed Europe and Warsaw wants to have a say in forming
the future of the bloc. Deeper eurozone integration has been dubbed a "multi-speed"
Europe because it would lead to different rates of
convergence within the 28-member bloc.

Mr Morawiecki said Warsaw's economic policy - based on
generous public spending and a growing focus on domestic
capital instead of foreign investment - should not change.

"We don't want further divisions ... we oppose splitting of
Europe between those are who better and those who are
inferior."
