Letter to the Editor: More information needed

Re: Hungarian wake-up call for EU referendum organisers, Editorial, April 21 - 27, Vol 9, No 15

I have read about the campaign while living here in London. If the Slovaks vote "yes", that would be because they are a mature nation - and in spite of the campaign. The Slovak government should give Slovaks some credit for their intelligence.

If they want [the campaign] to work, I would suggest discussions on TV and radio and supplements in the newspapers, especially Nový čas and the regional papers (not only during the two weeks before the referendum) about how EU membership will affect the country - including, for balance, the challenges (at least initially) that are likely to stem from membership.
