IN POLAND, speaking in parliament is a privilege mostly ­reserved for MPs, but the opposition has skirted that regulation with the help of a hand-held ­tablet computer.

When nationalist opposition party leader and MP Jaroslaw Kaczynski stood up to speak in the lower chamber yesterday, he surprised members by ­taking out his tablet and playing a pre-recorded policy speech by Piotr Glinski, his Law and Justice Party’s shadow prime minister, a non-elected official.

The public relations stunt was apparently aimed at showing Mr Glinski’s leadership potential.
