Fears of unrest in eastern Europe grow as Czech government collapses


www.independent. co.uk

The collapse of the Czech government sent shivers through financial markets in eastern Europe yesterday fanning fears about the growing political unrest that appears to be sweeping through the EU's eastern fringes.


Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek's government narrowly lost a vote of no-confidence on Tuesday night, four days after the Hungarian leader, Ferenc Gyuarcsany, threw in the towel and five weeks after the Latvian government fell under a barrage of public protests. Most of eastern Europe's main currencies lost value yesterday as Czechs pondered the impact of Mr Topolanek's defeat, while Romania turned to the IMF for a €20bn lifeline.

The government in Prague was fatally wounded by a series of scandals rather than looming financial meltdown, but with its removal another element of uncertainty has been added to eastern Europe's volatile mix of economic weakness, political frailty and rising public discontent.

Many European countries are in a dire situation, as well as most, if not all of the world.

If you read the article, it says that the Czech Republic's collapse was not because of any debt that they have, but rather because export markets, such as Germany's, are shrinking, and is causing a dominoe effect whch threatens to take down many other nations.

The stage is set, the are "taking advantage of a good crisis", and soon they will present the new government, person, or people which "will save the world".

My god, please dont mess it up as always you Americans and English.
1. we are CZ, Czech repupublic, NOT Czechoslovakia republic, yes.
2. Our ignorant, swell-headed, but unbrekable and cleverer than the strongest opossition party leader Jiří (George) Paroubek (ČSSD - a party that is equivalent to the Labour party in GB or the Democratic party in the USA), Miroslav Topolánek (ODS - a party like th Conservatives in GB or Republicans like in the USA), has repeetedly for 3 years that he is in office outlived 5 attempts by the oppsition to knock out the whole goverment.

Our constitution allows our representative in the 200 member parliement to if it is proposed and then by the vote of 101 or more representatives enforced to proclaim ,,distrust,, to the goverment and call it back. The president (a represensative role normaly) has than the unique power and the time to the next govermental elections (now it is nearly one and half year to the election) to appoint a new goverment from the winning party of the last election - the ODS (its 3 yrs now). the problem is that ČSD and the ODS had each after the last election 100 representatives. All other than was based on bribery, black mailing, scandalization or mainly chance or luck.

This collapse of the Czech government was far from an ordinary set of events. The Czech Republic is blest with extremely intelligent, free thinking politicians, and I personally admire Mirek Topolanek for grace under fire -- others would disagree with me.

Everything at the moment is put into the hands of Vaclav Klaus ('Vaclav' is pronounced something like Vass-loff) -- someone I do not like but I admire his steadfast opposition to the Global Warming Alarmists.... which ironically takes us back to the fall of the government.

Some of Al Gore's friends thought it a good time to yank the chain in the Czech Republic and through the equivalent of Labour in the Czech Republic, they were able to orchestrate this public embarrassment for the Czechs at the time that they hold the six-month rotating Presidency of the European Union.

While they wanted to embarass the conservative Czechs, they've made something of a mess of it because Vaclav Klaus is far to the right of the new Eurodogma symbolised by the Lisbon Treaty.
