TV Interview: Finance Minister Dozes Off While Talking

Miroslav Kalousek makes several attempts to answer a question about tax relief for victims of the flood disaster during a telephone interview with TV Nova – with a notably heavy tongue. Eventually he surrenders and aborts the interview. The minister excuses himself that he hasn’t slept in three day.

The next day he reportedly admits to the real reason – he has been knocked out by two shots of liquor.

Well, that’s a relief.
