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

Thursday 23 May 2013

We should be released from the E.U.'s "excessive debt procedure" soon, as we have now brought the government budget deficit down to below 3%. There is a small chance however that the commission will make some excuse not to release us, because they hate me (and I hate them to be honest!).

In an attempt to encourage them, we sent them a letter today, explaining that although we believe that we should be released from the procedure, we are still taking actions to reduce the budget deficit further. I mentioned a tax on advertising in the letter.

The tax on advertising is an idea that we had recently that has nothing to do with keeping the bureaucrats happy. It's simply an attempt to close down TV stations that are still independent. The advertising tax does not kick in until advertising revenues reach a certain threshold – which by coincidence happens to be just under the advertising revenues of the foreign owned media.

Still, we need to be a little careful. If RTL Klub pulled out of Hungary, that would be the end of Barátok Közt and X-factor. Hungarian people may not get that angry when we take away freedom of the press, but if we took away Barátok Közt, we would get the guillotine.

A visit to Debrecen today. Always a pleasure to visit a city that is totally faithful to the Fidesz cause. I visited the Calvinist school there. I hope the Catholic Church is not too angry with me!

I'm a bit annoyed to see that Al Jazeera has made a documentary about Hungary entitled "Heading Towards the Abyss," in which they make out that we are a re-birth of the Nazi party of the 1930s. What have I done to upset the Arabs?

Bajnai made a speech today in which he said that if he wins the election, he will re open the land and tobacconist tenders, and he threatened that he would put in prison those who were responsible for corruption during my period in office.

There is a slight flaw in Mr Bajnai's plan. The only person who can prosecute on behalf of the state is the chief prosecutor, Péter Polt, a Fidesz loyalist. Péter has been appointed to his office for a period of ten years. The only way he can be removed is by a Parliamentary majority of 2/3.

Sorry Mr Bajnai, you've got to do better than that!

I don't quite know how to say this, but today we got some good news from the E.U!

Hungary has been released from the excessive deficit procedure!!

I knew we should be of course, but I thought they would find a reason not to release us.

This is a definite boost to our electoral prospects. We can now say that we are the party of economic prudence. Forget Bokros, its now Fidesz!!

I'm going to have a great fiftieth birthday party on Friday. I already had a large delivery of Cigars from a grateful tobacconist.
