Power is poison

Political power is poison.  More political power is more poison. It’s a little wonder that Fidesz and Prime Minister Viktor Orbán are not terminally ill yet.

July, 2016: Most likely election results according to all political polls

If the elections were held in Hungary this Sunday then Fidesz would repeat, or actually improve, its 2014  result when they achieved a supermajority (that is two thirds of the seats) as they did in 2010.

One may daydream about a grassroot political force, about healthy competition in Hungary’s political life, but now there are simply no signs in Hungary for an electable alternative to Fidesz.  This is bad for Fidesz, this is bad for the country but it’s a lot, lot better than the prospect of a “left-liberal”, that is MSZP-DK-PM-LMP-Együtt government. Or of a Jobbik government.

    What is it that makes Fidesz difference from Jobbik, and why do you dislike them? What should a new grassroots do so they are not Jobbik?
    Their platform is maturing and improving with time, and when Vona resigns after losing in 2018, there will be room for further improvement.
    Don’t forget in the beginning, Fidesz was in an alliance with SzDSz, and it took two decades +, to get to the current platform.
