Confusing words in the Czech Republic

The liberal daily Mladá Fronta Dnes criticises the slogans of the Czech Social Democrats in the European Parliament elections as misleading: "'No cuts in family allowance payments', the Social Democrats say. 'We want a health system without extra payments, we want social security for all, we want affordable rents', they say. Of course it's not the MEPs - who are some of the best-earning men and women in the Czech Republic - who decide how high child allowance benefits will be. But what other choice do the Social Democrats have? They must mobilise as many people as possible. In the 2004 European Parliament elections, only a mere 28 percent of the electorate even bothered to vote."
