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.

The Secret Diaries of Viktor Orbán

Tuesday 11 December 2012

The students are still on strike about our proposed education reforms. The fact is, the government cannot afford to send people to university any more. Governments only have limited amounts of taxpayers' money, and it is necessary that those are used only on essential services, such as building new football academies so that once again we can beat England at Wembley!

I won't give in! I won't even meet the leaders of the students.

Bloody hell! Mesterházy, the leader of one of the opposition parties attended a student demonstration today, and showed a video of me campaigning against the introduction of tuition fees when Gyurcsány was Prime Minister. I even organized a referendum against tuition fees in 2006 and promised that Fidesz would never introduce them. I was hoping that the voters had forgotten than.

Mesterházy then promised that if MszP wins the next election, he will stop tuition fees. As I well know, it is easy to make such promises while in opposition, but quite another thing to keep those promises when actually running the country.

Tuition fees are the right choice! I will not give in.

I read Gyurcsány's post on Facebook today. He agrees that tuition fees are necessary.

I can't do something that Gyurcsány agrees with. Perhaps I will scrap this plan.

Saturday 15 December 2012

I've finally decided that we won't charge tuition fees. Students who get the right grades at school can go to University. The state will pay. No idea where we will get the money from, but I will leave Matolcsy to sort that one out.

They will of course have to spend the rest of their days living in Hungary. We are going to re introduce the system of passports that existed pre 1989, where passports are looked after by the state, and only given to the holders for approved trips abroad. Perhaps we should build an iron fence along the border between Hungary and Austria to stop graduates trying to escape.

I hear that Mr Bajnai was involved in a car accident today! Funny that...

Sadly he escaped uninjured.
