      Those I spoke w/ while there expressed a strong desire to be independent.  It is not so much the currency, but the fact that Brussels w/ dictate a lot of regulations about everything from what can be cooked to how it is to be cooked in restaurants, sanitation and a lot more, including recycling, and virtually every action in daily life.  Those who expressed an opinion were adamant against ratification.

      They were also very upset that Germany & France could do whatever they wanted re: their budget deficits (that are well in excess of EU requirements), but that smaller nations in the EU were lectured by them.  There was a lot of resentment against some members not abiding by the rules themselves & they felt that it was hypocritical.

      There is a lot more than that, but it is enough for now.

      But many were silent & I did not know if that was in support or in rejection of those who spoke against.  And it is an unscientific survey.

      Can anyone explain why the Czech Republic won't ratify the treaty to complete the European Union?
