Reader feedback: You'll get what you deserve

Slovaks have a right and a duty to vote for the party that best represents their interests, hopes and dreams. If they do that, they will get the government they deserve - good or bad. Just as we all do, who are fortunate enough to live in democracies. If Slovak voters would prefer to align themselves to the east, where many were quite comfortable being in the old Soviet sphere, that is indeed their business. Russians need a reason to smile now and then. If they wish to live isolated from the rest of Europe to the west, north and south of them, that is also their business. Mr [US ambassador to Nato Nicholas] Burns was not dictating to Slovaks how to vote, he was simply offering one result for their consideration. It is like telling someone about to jump off a tall building that there is a good chance he'll break his legs.
