It would appear the Polish Prime Minister has respect for the health and safety of his countrymen and women.
Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk says his government won't buy vaccines for swine flu which have not been properly tested or from producers who won't take responsibility for possible side effects.
He told reporters that vaccine producers were pressuring governments to buy, but were also demanding that all responsibility and compensation for possible side effects should fall upon governments purchasing the medicine.
He stressed that the few dozen swine flu cases in Poland had been mild and no deaths have been reported.
I should think since he made his remarks on Friday, there have been more than a few phone calls from Brussels telling him he was bang out of order. Heads of government shouldn't tell the people the truth should they? The truth in this case could cost their friends, in the pharmaceutical industry, big money.
