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.

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.
