    EU: European Union's freedom of movement, one of the
fundamentals of the 28-member bloc, may have to change,
otherwise the EU might dissolve, Czech Foreign Minister Lubomir
Zaoralek was quoted as saying, as he assessed the impact of
Britain's decision to leave the EU.
    "When you have two million people from the East coming, who
take your jobs, social support and a number of other things, you
can persuade your own people a thousand times to get used to it.
They won't take it, because you simply went too far and you did
not tell them the truth."
