Sunday 8 April
I was interviewed by the Catholic weekly Új Ember. I decided to use this interview to offer some new propaganda: an alternative version of why I am fighting against the E.U. It’s because the E.U is moving away from Christianity towards a secular society, where homosexuality is promoted, and true Christian values of hope, charity and love are forgotten about.
Hungary on the other hand will fight these tendencies, and we will defend the true Christian traditions on which European society is based. The E.U. may say that our new laws are against the spirit of the European tradition, but actually they are wrong. We are the true guardians of the Christian tradition, the E.U. are Satanists, who are trying to destroy European values!
All nonsense of course, but I have to have some arguments to counter those coming from Brussels, so the voters don’t see the real purpose of my new laws, which is to provide me with absolute power.

The situation with our IMF/EU loan is not looking good. The IMF won’t lend us anything until the E.U. gives them the green light. The E.U. won’t give the green light because they have some serious concerns about some of our laws – in particular the fact that we now control the judiciary and the central bank.
There is no way we are changing these laws – but we did make some cosmetic changes to them to try to persuade the E.U. that we are willing.
The message that we are getting back from Brussels now is “Don’t bother coming back to any negotiations until you’ve changed what needs to be changed.”
The problem is we need them more than they need us!

If we don’t get that E.U. loan, then we will be forced to default on the repayments that are due this year. We need to prepare the voters for this, so I am now sending out the message that foreign creditors have trapped our country intentionally, so that they can dictate our government policies. They are blackmailing us and threaten the very sovereignty of our nation.
I will continue to slander the holders of our sovereign debt in this way. Then if we default, the electorate will see it as a sign of strength, not failed economic policies.

Some good news on the foreign policy front! Our warm relationship with the government of Syria is paying dividends. While other European nations have closed their embassies in Damascus, ours remains open for business as usual. Mr. Assad is a man I admire. He knows how to deal with his political opponents.
Thanks to our policy, the Brits and Australians are asking our embassy in Damascus to represent their citizens too. So Hungary is leading on international diplomacy!
Friday 13 April
A big decision I need to make is who should succeed Mr. Schmitt as President of Hungary. In theory, Parliament should elect the new president. In practice, since Fidesz controls 2/3 of the seats in Parliament, and since most of the people holding those seats do as I say, the decision is actually mine.
I have decided to appoint (sorry I mean propose) János Áder, currently a Fidesz member of the European Parliament. János and I go back a long way – he has been with Fidesz since the beginning. Sadly after I lost two consecutive elections, some in the party were suggesting that he should take over as leader. I couldn’t have that, so I orchestrated a smear campaign against him, with a little help from my friends as Magyar Nemzet.
With his reputation in ruins, János decided to take up a job as member of the European Parliament. He still remains a potential threat to me though. If we lose the next election, he may decide to return to Budapest, and try to take my job again. Since he is not actually involved in the current government decisions, he would have some credibility and might succeed.
If I appoint him as president instead, that should keep him happy, while removing his ambitions to take my job! Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer!
