Reader feedback: Mečiar and Nato mutually exclusive

Let's hope we will see more than 70 per cent of people not voting the HZDS [in September 2002 elections]. The crux of the problem is that the HZDS would form the government and likely fall into the same political practices as before.

You have no way to judge a party except its past record (the same way we judge people). The 70 per cent of voters who are apparently opposed to the HZDS will have very little say if the HZDS returns to run the country, just as it was in the past.

I was visiting Slovakia when Mečiar was in his heyday as prime minister. I was appalled. Doesn't anyone remember?

I agree that Mečiar's HZDS and Nato are mutually exclusive!
