Don't be too foreign!

I was very pleased to see this article in HN, about the English (actually Scottish) butcher, Chris Robertson, whom we also recommend on our pages. Like many British expats in Prague I am a long-time loyal customer of Chris's shops. The most striking thing about Chris's business is how "Czech" it is.

Hands off Budvar!

There are important and reasonable questions to ask about Budějovický Budvar. Should a brewery be owned by the State? If not, how, and to whom should it be sold? And while it remains in State hands, how should the performance of the CEO and its employees be evaluated? These are questions for all of us, because Budvar belongs to us. As our servants, they would lay out the various options for us to consider, and ultimately to vote on.
