Former president Václav Klaus has slammed the renaming of Prague Airport after his late political rival and predecessor, Václav Havel. In a new book of his travel writings, Mr. Klaus describes the move as an act of political wilfulness reflecting a short-term outlook, comparing it unfavourably to the renaming of Rome’s Fiumicino airport after Leonardo da Vinci. The right-wing politician also takes a swipe at Czechs in the book, saying they are “always stupider than the rest of the world” and have greater hatred for one another than other nations.
