Reader feedback: Not all ex-pats are the same

Re: Slovakia suffers first casualties in Iraq, Flash news briefs, June 7 - 13, Vol 10, No 22

I was born in Slovakia, lived my first 21 years there, and was educated there. I have lived in Crystal Palace [England] for nine years now, fly home four times a year for a long period of time, vote there, etc.

I read papers online everyday (SME, Pravda, this paper once a week...), keep in contact, and am in the process of moving back to Bratislava with my husband.

I hope you get my point. Saying all this, I do get [the point that some expatriates criticise Slovakia without being actively involved], but they still have the right to say out loud what they please, do they not?
