Czech TV Calls MPs Bugs, MPs Threaten Sanctions

I’m inaugurating a new section here on the blog called “Ministry of Stupidity,” which I hope will be a repository for some of the shenanigans of Czech politicians.

Today’s news comes from Czech MPs who are mad about being compared to bugs in a Czech TV report. The report compared MPs to termites, aggressive insects that only build secure nests and don’t do anything else.

The report angered 30 MPs so much that they’re threatening to reject Czech TV’s request for an increase in viewer payments and ad time/revenue. But this quote, from the Culture Minister himself, Pavel Dostal, takes the cake.

“If someone, without any reason, terms senators and deputies to be destructive insects, they cannot expect a welcome. This is only human,” Dostal said.
