End to Poland-EU Constitutional Row Requires Comprehensive Approach
According to Korwin-Mikke, Poland has benefited from its EU membership by receiving subsidies but Warsaw's losses have outweighed the benefits.

"The Polish economy growth rate amounted to 8 percent when we left the Moscow socialism and just joined the European Union. Now we have fallen to the bloc's average of 1 percent, 2 percent maximum. If we had kept previous growth rates, we would have surpassed Germany by now," the lawmaker told the Rzeczpospolita newspaper, adding that Poland "will die under EU occupation."

According to Korwin-Mikke, all of Europe "is dying" as birth rates are low and the pace of development has practically drawn to a halt.

The lawmaker recommended following the example of the United Kingdom, which might leave the bloc after its upcoming referendum on the issue on June 23.
