An opinion poll commissioned by Czech TV suggests that most Czechs agree with Deputy Prime Minister Jiri Cunek's recently expressed views on Romanies. Asked by a newspaper whether other people should receive state subsidies like Romanies, Mr Cunek said non-Roma would need to get a suntan - an allusion to the colour of Romanies' skin - cause chaos in their families and light fires on town squares before politicians would regard them as badly off. In the poll conducted by the STEM agency, 64 percent of respondents agreed with Mr Cunek and 58 percent said he should not have to leave his post in government.
