>Buy Klaus! Buy Švejnar!
The political futures markets run by OpenDemocracy.net has, I see with interest, launched an options market on whether Václav Klaus will retain the Czech presidency next February. Punters can spend up to $5000 virtual dollars hedging for or against VK re-entering Prague Castle. I must sign up and put some imaginary money on him – given my record has a political tipster on the Czech Republic, this will probably finish off the great survivor of Czech politics for good!
