In 2009 prima donna President Vaclav Klaus of the Czech Republic founded the Czech Civic Democratic Party (Obcanska demokraticka strana, abbreviated to ODS), which vies for the title of the most right-wing political party in the Czech Republic.
The ODS, you may be aware, is one of the parties which make up the Tory group in the European Parliament, the European Conservatives and Reformists. Again we see the Tories true colours in the people they choose to work with.
Most of us would, I think, agree that Vaclav Klaus is a most unpleasant man. According to the weighty press coverage he has received over the past couple of weeks he is revelling in every minute of his show stopping performance on the Lisbon Treaty. Acting like some tin pot dictator, he is going against the wishes of the two houses of parliament in the country of which he is President and the constitutional court there, not to mention the other 26 EU countries which have ratified the Lisbon Treaty.
President Klaus is also, according to today’s Guardian, a womaniser who despises feminists and mocks environmentalists. He is also a climate change denier.
Quite a dossier! We are now seeing what David Cameron is really about.
