I have been in CZech Republic for over three years for professional and personal reasons and I am constantly astounded at how rude Czechs people are.There is a culture of being surly and interfering; an anal obsession with bureaucracy;and a determination to use each other, and strangers, for what they can get. It seems the soul has been sucked from the country and there is no room for ideology or principles. A nation of passive aggressive hypocrites who will greet you with one hand and stab you in the back with the other. Sexist, racist and arrogant seems to be the common ly accepted male behaviour and I despair of meeting any Czechs who vaguely resemble thinking human beings. It is a cynical wasteland and I leave soon with a huge sigh of relief.Wake up Czechs, your history is not one to give you reason to be so vain.
