Prague - The news is wonderful, Ondrej Tucek writes with some irony in Hospodarske noviny, reacting to the report that the opposition Social Democrats (CSSD) are allegedly collecting data on suspicious dealings and scandals of the Civic Democratic Party (ODS, major coalition government member).
Thanks to this, there is the hope that socialists will reply to the unprecedented declaration of war (the attack on former Central Bohemia governor David Rath, facing corruption charges) with a counter-attack, Tucek writes.
Now it is the turn of some big fish from the ODS. In fact, one can find lots of them in the party's pond, he adds.
The best scenario for society would thus be fulfilled, Tucek writes.
The war of "one Godfather for another" between the two powers can only benefit the general public because it can can trigger an uncontrollable snow-ball of mutual accusations, he adds.
Czech ombudsman Pavel Varvarovsky has proven that mathematical and natural laws do not apply in Czech practical schools, Jana Blazkova writes in Mlada fronta Dnes.
If they were applied, only every 30th child in them would be of Romany origin, while Romanies account for one-third of them, Blazkova writes.
There is no reason for their proportion to be so high, she adds.
The problem is clear: one ethnic group living in this country does not receive comparable education as the remaining ethnic groups, Blazkova writes.
The excuse that Romany parents themselves send their children to practical school is untrue, she adds.
How can one expect the parents who themselves were most probably graduates of practical schools not to wish the same to their children? Blazkova writes.
It has turned out that Czech Prime Minister Petr Necas was right two years ago when presenting the arguments for the Czech Republic's not joining the European fiscal pact, Daniel Kaiser writes in Lidove noviny.
At that time, his critics used to claim that since no breakthrough was in the offing, Necas is uselessly sounding the alarm, Kaiser writes.
However, Necas precisely described the general direction to which Europe started to be heading, he adds, pointing to the latest proposals to implement the banking, fiscal and primarily political unions in the EU.
The latest developments cannot be played down. One has to start a serious search for a relationship with the "old Europe" that has appeared in a blind alley, Kaiser writes.
