Reader feedback: Failing the smell test

The timing of the "reopening of the case" simply does not pass the "smell test". Mečiar's detractors had almost four years to resolve the question of his guilt. But with the Dzurinda government things just move so sloooooow.

Can't his opponents just simply join on a single political ticket? After all, they have a 70%.
