Letter to the Editor: Leader has lost his credibility

Dzurinda has lost credibility ["Dzurinda proposes new coalition" News Briefs Vol. 7 No. 42 November 5 - 11]. Among Slovak people he has a reputation of a blablablabla-man and the least credible politician. He talks nice but for common-sense Slovaks he sounds as if he has a pre-programmed chip-card in his head instead of his brain.

Slovaks are able to uncover deception, although it takes a long time, just because they give the person a second chance. But, unfortunately, there is no second chance. If you deceive again you are lost. This is what foreigners making a psychological map of Slovaks either don't know, or are not aware of: Slovaks have always been conservative.
