Nečas: Racial tension in North Bohemia the result of ‘overly generous’ social policies


Prime Minister Petr Nečas has cited previous ‘overly generous’ social policies as one of the causes of racial tensions in the area of Varnsdorf. Speaking at a conference of Civic Democrat mayors in Brno., the prime minister said that it continues to be more comfortable for many people to accept social welfare rather than take up legal employment. The main priority of the state, he said, is to ensure people’s security and protect their property. Mr Nečas will apparently be visiting the area next week.
