Hungary for change
anyone else worried about recent events in Hungary? I know that when there is democracy people quite often vote for the wrong parties, but what is worse than that is when those elected pull up the ladder behind them by removing democratic safeguards. Hitler did this. Hamas did it too, more recently, by throwing the legitimate heads of the administration out of windows (nice). Now it is happening in Hungary. There is only one radio station left which supports the opposition, Klubradio, and the government-appointed Media Council has now reallocated radio frequencies, so that Klubradio will have to stop broadcasting at the end of February. They can perhaps become an internet radio station, I don't know. Anyone? Anyone?
