Poll shows 23 per cent say Kosovo to stay integral part of Serbia-Montenegro

Text of unattributed report entitled "Kosovo formally in Serbia" published by the Serbian newspaper Blic on 11 May

What do the citizens of Serbia think about whether Kosovo will stay part of Serbia-Montenegro, what is the best solution for the Kosovo problem, and how many of our fellow citizens have ever visited Kosovo? These questions were part of a public opinion survey conducted in the period between 28 April and 6 May by Blic in cooperation with the Belgrade Centre for Marketing Research's Marten Board International, www.marten-board.co.yu , a licensed partner of the British Market Research Bureau from London. The survey was conducted on a random stratified sample of 596 respondents, urban adult citizens of Serbia.

The majority of the respondents, or more precisely, 38.6 per cent, said they believed Kosovo and Metohija would only formally remain an integral part of the Republic of Serbia, while 33.8 per cent said they thought Kosovo and Metohija would secede from Serbia. Slightly less than a quarter of the queried citizens (23.4 per cent) said they believed Kosovo and Metohija would formally and factually remain an integral part of Serbia.

Asked whether they had ever visited Kosovo in a private capacity, only 11.2 per cent said yes, while 88.2 per cent said no.

Asked what the best solution was for the status of Kosovo, 41.8 per cent said autonomous province as part of Serbia, 24.6 per cent said republic as part of Serbia-Montenegro, 10.3 per cent said division of Kosovo between Serbs and Albanians, 4.5 per cent said independent state of Kosovo, 4.8 per cent said protectorate of western powers in Kosovo, and 13.1 per cent said they did not know.

Asked whether our government officials should speak out in favour of Kosovo's secession, 90.2 per cent said no, 1.2 per cent said yes, 3.1 per cent said they did not know, and 11.2 per cent could not decide.

Does this mean that 90.2 percent are minds that think alike Milosevic?

Not necessarily. Milosevic and his friends used military force to keep Kosova within Serbia. The questionnaire of Blic does not seem to have raised the question of methods to keep Kosova.

Milosevic's friends are still in your legislative, executive and judicial branches of your governments. they are still in your secret service and army. Imagine Germany in the late 50 early 60 having Himler and Goebels in the government parliament and courts.

That's nice - comments abut the Serbs being Fascist coming from the fascists' servants themselves. Hopefully that will remain your destiny, serving the tyrants of the world.
You are so far up the american asses hopefully you'll soon disapear and leave the rest of us in peace. Bloody criminals without any scrupules or moral boudaries.
