Jaroslaw Kaczynski breaks arm after falling on ice


Does that make him a lame duck Prime Minister?

AP reports:

Kaczynski [nicknamed ‘the duck’] — the identical twin of President Lech Kaczynski — had the accident Sunday afternoon while he was on his way to attend a Roman Catholic Mass in a chapel at the president's palace, the government spokesman Jan Dziedziczak told TNV24.
Kaczynski received medical treatment and was expected to be able to carry out most of his duties in the coming week because he is right-handed, Dziedziczak said.
It’s good to know you only need one arm to be a Prime Minister...signing things...shaking hands...that kind of thing...

He's a right wing duck, so breaking he left wing is part of his project, surly?

Populism and regionalism, only requires one arm.

One of the tabloids has a computer-animated reproduction of the whole tragic incident for readers too dumb to understand the complexities of slipping on ice.

What I keep on noticing about this blog is the choice of pictures. Beatroot - they're fab, where do you find them? Kasia
