freelogoOur objective is to provide English speaking readers interested in Hungary with a well balanced view of political activities in Hungary by featuring contents from various printed and online sources together with our own commentaries. We are convinced that Hungary is built on all sorts of different ideas, thoughts and opinions and, despite of the new Media Law, our aim is to provide an alternative and reliable source of information – contrary to the one-sided press of the government – for those who want to hear the voice of a free Hungary.

We should not get the most! – the previous prime minister motioned to his business partners at a Tokaj based limited company’s „not general meeting” meeting, and they succeeded, they got a lot of money from the state but not the most.
Now the prime minister is the same, but his attention is diverted from desert wines to football. He became a bit aged and since with grey hair and growing belly, he doesn’t run the way he used to he decided to create a football academy for himself. It is a lovely institution, the only thing missing from it is the pitch. They asked for HUF 4 billion to create it but suddenly someone must have realised that the prime minister is unbribable, rigorously sticking to his ideals, even a puritan man who would by no means influence concrete decisions, he would not have a say over such matters and he would be just as happy if in his favourite Felcsút the centre pitch would be built only from HUF 3 billion, one in which the whole male population would fit in if it chooses to watch quality football when FC Barcelona and Manchester City (or any other professional team) plays a game not broadcast on TV.
At the same time, if he so requires, he confiscates (nationalizes) the billions of Forints saved in the private pension funds, the equity in banks to be used for lending, he increases value added tax (the highest in the EU at 27%), he squeezes the multinational companies and us for our last drop of juice but to fund football, like a magician, he creates 20 billion Forints, which does not need to be paid to the central budget, for HUF 40 billion he will build a new national stadium, for HUF 12 billion he will build another stadium for the Debrecen based Loki football team and for hundreds of millions of Forint he will buy new ticketing and entry systems (yet again) for Győr and Fehérvár. He does not fritter away money. In case of a leader it is important that he knows what is important and the priories. Good leader, who will, if needs be, whip the spotted into the net.
