THE FORMER Czech Republic President has blasted the European Union insisting it is time for the country to exit the bloc.
Vaclav Klaus criticised the EU over a recent row over migrant quotes which are not being met by the Czech Republic, Poland or Hungary.
The countries risk losing funding from the European Union unless they meet quotas for allowing migrants to enter the country, and take their fair share of the escalating crisis.
Mr Klaus raged at the Brussels bloc, insisting the country should not be punished for not meeting the quota.
He said: “We fundamentally and resolutely protest the decision of the European Union to initiate towards the Czech Republic proceedings regarding the so-called “not respecting” the receipt of migrants on the basis of quotas dictated by Brussels.
