A left-wing take on Orbán’s ”freedom fight”

March 26th, 2012

In his regular lead column in 168 óra, Tamás Mészáros suggests that the Prime Minister’s radical “freedom fighter’s” rhetoric is aimed at keeping his camp together amid the present financial difficulties.

He argues that, as a result, Hungary is getting extremely unfavourable treatment from the international press and the investment climate around it is deteriorating. Hungary’s worsening image in Germany must have been deemed especially worrisome by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. But Foreign Minister János Martonyi and his colleagues “rush in vain to Berlin in an attempt to extinguish the fire,” for their efforts are left in tatters as soon as the Prime Minister addresses a crowd.
