"30 years from now, people will say that this guy was right" - Excerpt from an interview with Ferenc Gyurcsány

If you visit slums, it really has the feeling that: aha, this big-wig came to us, peers at us, then he leaves and nothing happens. It's like a safari.

We visit only people who are glad to see us. If for nothing else but having the opportunity to tell us their afflictions. It is also useful if someone can tell his problems to his friends. A friend cannot solve them but at least listens to him.

Hungary Socialists see alliance with former PM Bajnai

Hungary should stop its war against foreign-owned companies and investor confidence about the country's economy should be restored as soon as possible, said Attila Mesterházy, head of the Socialist Party (MSZP), the largest opposition party, during his trip to the United States. To boost the opposition's chances of success in next year's general elections and beat Orbán who swept back into power in 2010 with two thirds of the votes, Mesterházy is looking to team up with former caretaker Prime Minister Gordon Bajnai, who is forming his own party, Together 2014, as well as other "democratic" opposition groups.
