Thousands take to the streets across Poland to protest against the new bill changing the judiciary system.
Marek Jakubiak, a deputy for the anti-establishment Kukiz' 15 grouping, followed similar comments from his conservative peers.
Jakubiak told public broadcaster Polish Radio: "The fact that we are a poor country does not come from the fact that we are idiots. The Germans burned our homeland. We we lost 50 years.
"I do not want a war with the Germans, I do not want bad relations with Germany... The Germans have to pay for the damage done to Poland and then we will talk normally as partners.”
Jarosław Kaczyński, head of the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party revealed the matter is on his mind at a convention in July.
He said gargantuan damages caused to his country were “really still not made up for”.
