Quite the talk of the town this is

Czech President Milos Zeman launched a foul-mouthed tirade against Russian protest group Pussy Riot during a bizarre radio interview.

The 70-year-old leader described the band, who regularly protest against Vladimir Putin as ‘f****d up’ and ‘s****’.

Swearing in both English and Czech, Zeman asked the interviewer: ‘You know what pussy means in English?’ He then translated the word into the Czech for c***, leading to dozens of complaints.

Current thinking is that this all comes from one of two possible causes.

1) His boozing is finally getting to him.

2) Something, anything, to detract from his performance in his actual job.

  1. Posturing exhibitionist punk feminist performance artists are not my cup of tea either.

    Incidentally, Tim, is Prague a bit like Dublin, where everyone knows the juicy scandals before the newspapers?

  2. Bloke no Longer in Austria

    Ha !
    They should’ve voted for Schwarzenberg after all. Then they’d have Donald Sinden as president.

  3. My mate in the pub here is a biog supporter of Schwartzy. And he was most impressed to find out I’d been to school with his son in law. Made me quite the toast for about 10 minutes.

  4. Bloke no Longer in Austria

    He was often on Austrian radio when Foreign Minister and I thought him an eminently sensible chap. Wonderfully fruity voice.

    I wonder if his family finally got all their lands back that were expropriated by the Commies.

  5. It’s just frustration. He knows he is too old and he’ll never bang them now so he is just mouthing off the sour grapes.

  6. Putin’s mistake was putting Pussy Riot in prison for their political activities. If he’d imprisoned them for the awful noise they make when shouting and hitting their instruments no-one would have raised a fuss.

  7. I have arrived at my current age with no idea of who Pussy Riot are. I know they were locked up but beyond that nada. I’m happy to say.

  8. So Much for Subtlety

    Didn’t Herodotus say that the Persians always arrived at every decision by talking about it when drunk and then talking about it again the next day when sober?

    I think politics might improve if people discussed things three sheets to the wind more often. Although it did not seem to help that sh!t Richard Crossman – who were the other two sh!ts who sued Private Eye with him for their truthful reporting of them getting drunk in Venice? Bevan?
