It seems that the propaganda offensive launched by the Slovaks just isn't good enough so the EU is going to do it for them. The Commissions gauletier in Bratislava, one Onno Simons is quoted as saying "The Slovak government just took some old logo, there is no slogan, there are no regional activities, there is not even an information centre. No contracts with PR-companies have been signed yet and people in the administration don’t know what tendering is."
Could it be that the Slovaks are not that keen on joining up with the economically and morally moribund EU? NO that though would never cross their minds, could it, would it?
