Reader feedback: Stickers below the level of a serious political force

Re: "Pot, sex and army stickers," By Lukáš Fila, Vol.8 No.29, August 5-11, 2002

The stickers were in poor taste, immature, and totally unbecoming of a political party that hopes to become part of the "civilised world" and the EU.

The reaction of the students was clear: they had really no idea who it was, they just like English swear words and didn't think about the idea any deeper until they were probably chanting the slogan. Then they realised, and probably just shrugged it off.

But I guess this is all "par for the course" in Slovak politics.
