Sunday 4th March
I spent the day doing some thinking. What is the objective of my government? What is Orbanism all about? I finally have a much clearer idea:
1. I will continue to reduce the economic power of foreign owned companies in Hungary and encourage them to leave.
2. Companies owned by my friends will fill the gap left by foreign companies.
3. I will encourage small entrepreneurs, and the re development of cottage industry. My vision of Hungary is one where every family will raise a pig, keep chickens and grow their own vegetables. We don't need large supermarkets any more.
4. So-called intellectuals who challenge this will be laughed at and discredited so they eventually leave the country.
I feel happy that I have managed to define what I stand for so clearly.
Monday 5th March
I saw on the news this morning that Putin has won the election to be President of Russia again. No surprises there. While I have little admiration for those Russians, I must admit that Putin is very clever the way he has stamped out all opposition in his country.
In one of his speeches, he claimed that those who voted against him were citizens in name only; really they were traitors funded by the United States of America. What a great line. I must use that.
Wednesday 7th March
The E.U. issued a statement today saying that they still have concerns over some of our laws. We have one month left to correct these. The laws in question relate to the compulsory retirement of judges at the age of 62, and the appointment of the Data Protection ombudsman.
Until we have satisfied the E.U. the IMF will not sit down with us to negotiate a stand by loan.
I am becoming less and less convinced that we need the IMF loan. The forint has really strengthened again since January. So I am reluctant to agree anything with the E.U. unless I really have to. Otherwise, I will be seen as a traitor to Hungary.
So I need to keep the E.U. waiting a bit longer. I will continue with our usual policy: be very positive and constructive to their faces, but be very rude about them when talking to our supporters at home. Hopefully when the time comes, we won't need the IMF loan, then I can tell the E.U. to get stuffed once and for all. Then I really will be a national hero.
Thursday 8th March
I attended a meeting of the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce. I enjoyed making a speech in Hungarian, safe in the knowledge that nobody in Brussels would know what I was talking about – one of the great advantages of our unique language. So I made some jokes about the IMF – "we have been sitting at the negotiating table for two months!" I quipped, "and they have not arrived yet." As for the E.U., I said, "they could not even run a village shop." That got a good deal of laughs, and lots of applause!
Friday 9th March
President Schmitt came to see me today, looking very serious. I was worried that he was going to tell me that HVG had uncovered another story about him – perhaps he had been caught cheating in his reading exams at primary school or something. Instead, he told me that the head of the E.U. Commission, Jose Manuel Barroso had complained to him about all the awful things that we are saying about the E.U. and that it is making it very difficult for them to treat Hungary objectively.
How does Barroso know what I've been saying about him? It was all in Hungarian!
Sunday 10th March
I almost feel sorry for the opposition. They organised an anti government rally today at which only 10,000 people showed up.
I can't wait until my own rally next week on March 15th. I always find that historic holidays are a good way to distract the public from what is happening in the present. We should have plenty of supporters.
Kaczynski has promised to send a few hundred of his Catholic zombies from Poland to join the party. We can always count on our Polish brothers!
