Viktor Orban

Ursula von der Leyden, the unelected President of the European Commission, was appointed in a stitch-up by Frau Merkel, President Macron, etc. She wants to defund the government of Hungary, which was recently re-elected in a fourth landslide victory. For the European Commission electors are the threat to democracy. 

This is not a joke. The people who rule us are terrified of the people, which is why they are terrified of free speech on the internet.

I have started watching television for the first time in about twenty years and the bias in the BBC World Service predictably depresses me. The BBC man in Budapest, speaking on the morning after the election, said Viktor Orban made a victory speech in which he listed the Ukrainian President as one of his opponents.

Indeed he did, but the BBC provided no explanation. 

Inattentive viewers might have thought this showed Viktor Orban in a bad light, perhaps as siding with Putin over Ukraine. He does not.

It was in fact a little joke about Mr Zelensky's very fierce attack on Orban just before the election took place, in which the Ukrainian president suggested that Mr Orban could have lost his honesty “somewhere in his contacts with Moscow.” 

Mr Zelensky is clearly Mr Orban's opponent. The reason he intervened in the Hungarian election is because, while Mr Orban agrees with EU sanctions, he does not intend to give military help to Ukraine. 

No doubt Ursula von der Leyen and the BBC disapprove, but the majority of Hungarian electors seem not to.
