Fork You France
"Forkgate" is the latest in a series of controversies the PiS Party has become embroiled in since taking power last year.
Poland "taught the French how to use a fork", said Polish deputy minister Kownacki, amid a continuing row over a cancelled defense contract.

The Deputy Defense Minister accused the French of lacking "class" after losing a multi-billion dollar contract to build 50 Airbus helicopters for Poland's military. Poland is now leaning towards American built Blackhawks.
Speaking on TV, Mr. Kownacki accused France of responding by withdrawing the offer of free accommodation and a car for the Polish delegation at a defense fair in Paris next week.
"They are a people who learned to eat with a fork from us a few centuries ago. So maybe this is why they are behaving in this way now," he said.
