Fidesz tries to seize every opportunity to fabricate scandals around Gyurcsány in vain. They keep repeating the name of the former prime minister in sort of a sick, monotonic way as a word of calling, even if he is no part of the group in question; not that it was a problem that, years after his term in office, he would try to join profit oriented and successful businesses. However, as the former prime minister is not part of the group – despite of all statements made by public speakers and journalists – which is targeted by the government's communication war machine, it is utter nonsense to ask him about it, and this conducts just exposes that the person asking the question is actually delivering on the political intent of creating a scandal, while he is not even interested in the answer he receives. The only purpose of the question was to provide news material for the right-wing media. Besides all this, Fidesz is not disturbed by the very fact that it makes life difficult for such a domestic enterprise – despite the government's (harmful) economic policies –, which tries to bring domestic developments, business opportunities and local businesses to international success.
If Fidesz or its spokesperson are really worried about the utilization of public funds, and wish to fight against the use of offshore techniques, then first it should propose reinstating the laws created by the Bajnai government to curtail these techniques and activities, which then was revoked by the Orbán government as one of their first measures. Following this, it should start asking questions about those actually existing (not only in political legends) off-shore companies, which provide the hinterland of business moguls leaning to Fidesz or, even better, it should start investigating as to how the businesses controlled by these Fidesz friendly entrepreneurs managed to secure most of the state contracts in the last two years and, for that matter, how on earth these companies received a credit line of HUF 38 billion (and it is not a mistake, the amount is HUF 38 billion) from the Hungarian Development Bank (MFB), which is managing public funds.
