Quote of the Week:


"This government does not consist of a herd of sheep that will go to the slaughter with their tails in the air, but of people who will defend themselves."


- Primer Minister Robert Fico speaking on Slovak Radio's Sobotné dialógy (Saturday Dialogues) talk show on May 26. The discussion centred around the case of ethnic-Hungarian student Hedviga Malinová, who claimed to have been attacked by skinheads for speaking in Hungarian on her mobile. Fico said the case had been hijacked by the government's political opponents and that they are not going to take it lying down.
