Reader feedback: What nonsense

Re: Economists: Smer-SNS-HZDS government the worst option, Flash News Briefs, Volume 12, Number 25, June 26 - July 2, 2006

Sorry Edmund, but what you wrote is utter nonsense. Fico is one of Putin's darlings because he has promised to open Slovakia privatisations to the oligarchs. Just like Mečiar, Fico is a communist/socialist at heart.

And repeating the statement that Slovak incomes have declined doesn't make it true. Of course, some people are in a bad economic situation, but the general picture is different than Fico's catch phrases make it out to be.

But if Slovakia does go down that path, then it will be exactly those who voted for Fico who will be paying the bill, not the very rich. They made their money during Mečiar's tenure, and are the same fat cats who finance Smer!

I have Slovak family too, and despite their mentality of always complaining, they are definitely better off today, or 5 years ago. They won't admit it, but it's simply true.

Jesper,
