My Bad

I'm not scary enough, says the Czech Prime Minister:

Prague- Czech PM Mirek Topolanek today said he views it as its biggest mistake that he has not "scared" people enough over what the country would face without implementing the government's planned tax, social and health systems reform.

If the growing public finance deficit were not halted in time, the budget's mandatory expenditures would exceed the overall revenues, Topolanek (Civic Democrats, ODS) said at a seminar in the Senate.

"The biggest mistake I've personally made is...that I did not adequately scare the public when the draft reform legislation package was presented [by the centre-right ruling coalition]," Topolanek said.

He excused this by not being accustomed to scaremongering.
