Abstract

The passionate demonstrations by the affluent Prague middle classes against the controversial behaviour of the Czech President Miloš Zeman will only deepen the rift between Prague and the rest of the Czech Republic, between the affluent and the marginalised because those who feel left behind see Zeman as their defender, argues Jan Culik in this article.
