Why don't your write the whole story? That these liberal and conservative elites have stolen so much national property that people became fed up with them. Especially, self-declared conservative Thatcherist Mr Klaus made a fantastic privatisation whose result was a debt. Social Democrats were not much better when privatisating coal mines which then went bankrupt. Who can be then surprised that majority of voters is fed up and wants a change. Clearly, Communists, Xenophobes, and Mr Babiš offer a change for a show down with corrupt and self-serving elites.
