Although it’s probably old news to everybody here I didn’t get a chance to blog this over the weekend so alas I’m offering my condolences to the people of Poland. A good chunk of their government was recently wiped out in a plane crash on April 10th. From the article:
As well as the president and his wife, Maria, a number of senior officials were on the passenger list.
They included the army chief of staff Gen Franciszek Gagor, central bank governor Slawomir Skrzypek and deputy Foreign Minister Andrzej Kremer.
I also noticed that this event has sparked a look into Poland’s travel policy for government officials. One of the first questions I had about this crash was why so many high ranking government officials were on the same flight at the same time. Apparently Poland has no policy preventing that which I hope they change soon.
