Re: Slovakia considers working restrictions against EU states, Flash news briefs, Feb 2 - 8, 2004, Vol 10, No 4

I disagree that Slovaks should have to wait for up to seven years in order to work legally in countries that ought to respect the equality and cooperation that the EU embodies. However, the response of applying similar restrictions is not the right way to go about the issue. The Slovak people have elected politicians and ambassadors who can presumably argue their case, and for them to merely legislate against these countries is of course a show of strength but certainly not diplomacy or political know-how.
