Support for the Euro collapses amongst Czechs

Thems doughty Czech types seem to be getting less and less impressed with the EU and its works.
The survey, conducted in September by the Stem polling agency, found that 70 per cent of 1,228 respondents oppose the switch, the Czech news agency CTK reported.
At 30 per cent, support for the euro was the lowest since 2005, when the firm began tracking euro attitudes, CTK said.
Amusingly the Czech's initially planned to join the Euro this year, and due largely to the work of their Dep PM and Foreign Minister, Karl Johannes Nepomuk Josef Norbert Friedrich Antonius Wratislaw Mena Fürst, Prince of Schwarzenberg, a fervent pro European. Shame for him his views are not shared by the people.

They are now worried about the joining date slipping past 2015 - or even later.
