The reason PiS is considered dangerous is not because they have the absolute majority, it's what they are doing with it. In just the first three month of the legislative period, they:
- Changed the rules of procedure of the constitutional court to make it harder for them to rule laws as unconstitutional.
- Increased the control of the parliament over the public media by giving the parliament the right to fire and hire the directors of public media outlets at any time.
- Allowed law enforcement to conduct surveillance on journalists, doctors and lawyers.
I don't want to claim that the motivation behind these measures is to build a totalitarian police-state but they are very obvious steps in that direction.
I don't want to claim either that the United Kingdom is much better in any of these regards. After all, the supreme court of the UK is quite weak due to the doctrine of parliamentary sovereignty, their super-injunctions are a powerful and often abused media control tool and their surveillance infrastructure is second only to that of the US. But in the UK this was a slow process.
Poland currently does too much at once which worries the other EU states.
