Mathieu and Annette discuss Poland’s election results. The end of the era for the anti-democratic and anti-European ruling party PIS seems over. What does this mean for Europe?
And, of course, they talk about the violence in the Middle East. How does Mathieu listen to European reactions? And what role does the EU have to play?
