Reader feedback: Worst solution

Re: Reader feedback: From one government kitty to another, Volume 12, Number 26, July 3-July 9

Like the other EU countries, I agree that Fico's parlament is the worst solution for Slovakia. I think he is the same as Mečiar and Slota. The promises made to Slovaks are only meant as music to their ears! The economy built by the previous government will suffer and Slovakia's reputation along with it. I really hope I shall never have a reason to return during this government. God help the Slovak nation.
