Final Word from Thursday, September 6, 2018

While Andrej Babiš was meeting in Berlin yesterday with Angela Merkel, Miroslav Poche of ČSSD was criticizing his ultimate boss on Czech Radio for trying to fundamentally change the direction of Czech foreign policy. The way Babiš is leaning toward Hungarian PM Viktor Orban and is communicating with the CR's foreign partners shows that he does not want to continue along the constructive path of the administration of ex-PM Bohuslav Sobotka and ex-Foreign Min. Lubomír Zaorálek, Poche said, and that he instead wants to push the country to the EU fringe. "I definitely do not want to allow this," Poche said. An unnamed source close to Babiš said in HN today that the source's one big goal is to keep Babiš away from Orban but that he is failing at this. This anonymous source could just have well said, "I work for the PM, but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations." The Resistance has arrived in the CR. [ Czech Republic Donald Trump United States U.S. USA Hungary foreign ministry Germany ]
