Jaroslav Tvrdík’s last day

I admired and respected Jaroslav Tvrdík, the Czech defense minister, who had one of the toughest jobs in the Spidla cabinet. Not only did he have to deal with Czech involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan, a NATO summit, and transformation of the Czech armed forces, but he also had to deal with the byzantine dealings inside the government, which eventually forced his will-he-won’t-he resignation over the weekend. In the end, he was pushed too far, and was asked to accept unacceptable budget cuts – which came in the face of some questionable spending on the part of the Å pidla administration.

But, seeing as I’m a Blesk reader, I had to pass along Blesk’s photos from his going-away party. Last-day parties at work are always really trapný, but it looks like he managed to have a pretty good time of it nonetheless.
