Great New Year and New Hope to everyone!

Guest

Well, for us the New Year already has begun – a glass of “Pezsgö” with our young ones and our neighbours – let’s hope that this year will be better for Hungary than the last ones!

PS:

Duna TV is showing one of those old films again: “Indul a bakterház”, really funny – you wouldn’t think that this was produced in Kádár times …

What miniscule hope remains for Hungarians resides in the fact that there is an Angyan and a Horvath–few as they are in the morass of the present government–that illustrate by their actions and very being what Dignity, Integrity, and true Patriotism is about.

The popular writer Jenő Rejtő was murdered, as a Jewish forced laborer, at the Russian front exactly 70 years ago.

Since his copyrights expired today, one can read his novels free of charge.

Arrow-cross (Nyilas) journalists demanded Rejtő’s draft in October 1942. He was soon dragged from a hospital to the front.

Something really strange:

Index reports that this morning police or rather TEK closed the road(s) to Felcsut – even the people living there couldn’t get in …
Index says no more news is available ??????

Guest

Here’s the link:
http://index.hu/belfold/2014/01/01/valami_tortent_az_ejjel_felcsuton_de_mi/

“Lehet tudni, miért volt hajnali 1 órakor Felcsút egész falu a készenléti rendőrség által lezárva, hogy a helyi lakosokat sem engedték be?”

Guest

No info on this yet?

Just a bit OT:

I just stumbled onto this site: http://budapestbeacon.com/
Just a few articles from the last days:
“Közgép and subsidiary win public tenders worth HUF 32 billion”
“OTP CEO Sandor Csanyi sells HUF 259 million worth of shares in bank”

Looks quite interesting – and has news on Hungary in English.
Sorry, if this info is nothing new for you!

Happy New Year to Eva and all the commenters and readers of this blog! I hope that 2014 will be a much brighter year for Hungary than 2013 was.

BUEK Eva: Even if your work does not immediately change current events, it will certainly leave a permanent mark on history, and one day most Hungarians will be grateful to you for it, and will commemorate it in their history books. — With much admiration, István

Happy New Year to all of us bloggers and well wishers. Eva, I know it takes guts to create The Hungarian Spectrum, I applaud with you and will continue to stand in the gap with prayer that your work will continue. LOL in 2014!!!

BUEK Éva – and to everyone else on HS.

Thanks for the link, Wolfi, looks like a good site.

It seems to me that hackers have killed the NYT questionnaire about Hungarian anti-Semitism within a week.

I herewith nominate Hungary for the title of Sick Man of the EU 2013.

@wolfi, apparently it was a family dispute involving weapons. http://hvg.hu/itthon/20140102_Testverere_vadaszo_ferfi_miatt_zarta_le_F I wonder if TEK gets involved if this kind of thing happens elsewhere.

The government agency dealing with distributing the EU support ceased to exist on December 31. Orban’s chief of staff will oversee the channeling of EU money directly from January 1, 2014.

The defunct agency issued a 3 billion HUF media tender on the last day of its existence!

I am sure this will go for Fidesz propaganda too.

The Election Commission just sent the papers everyone to register as member of a non-Hungarian ethnic group.

THere is NOT a single word in the enclosed instructions that if you register for the election as member of an ethnic group, you are NOT allowed to vote for political parties by the new Fidesz election rules.

I think this is outrageous!

Correction:
my apologies, it is there:

two words, hidden inside a more than 4-line long sentence.

tappanch

Here is the baroque sentence:

“Abban az esetben, ha az országgyűlési választásban az egyéni jelölt mellett nem pártlistára, hanem helyette a nemzetiségének országos önkormányzata által állított listára kíván szavazni, a B pont bejelölésével jelezheti, hogy a nemzetiségi választópolgárként történő névjegyzékbe vételének hatálya az országgyűlési képviselők választására is terjedjen ki.”

So if you are in the 90% that have difficulty understanding this and mark B, then you just lost your right to vote for a party (for 5 years?) – congratulations.
