    This means that the voters who got disillusioned by the current hungarian right are not flocking to the so called oligarch left.

    So the more attacks on Fidesz by the left, the more supporters turn to Jobbik.

      “So the more attacks on Fidesz by the left, the more supporters turn to Jobbik.”

      or Fidesz attacks are misfiring, then people just see through them as two bad alternatives.
      The peculiar is probably that “Jobbik” gets a pro-Maidan effect, even if “Jobbik” is against this Ukrainian uprising, but they keep silent about it and their new/swing-voters see “Jobbik” as an outsider, and like Maidan can come in and clean out old politicians

      Sadly the situation in Ukraine will probably turn much uglier and then “Jobbik” will need to confess their pro-Putin sympathies

      • Hungarian

        Jobbik was the only Hungarian party calling for Hungarian autonomy in Ukrainian held Hungarian areas, and they have already confessed to that.

        • MagyarViking

          Yes, but Russia do not want that, Russian wants ALL of Ukraine and will not give “Jobbik” any parts
          Or you have evidence to suggest that “Jobbik” has got some promise from Putin to get some part of current Ukraine?

          • Hungarian

            No Jose,
            Russia wants the Crimea and Russian inhabited Eastern ukrain with all it’s oil.

            Get a life!

          • MagyarViking

            Why should Putin stop there?
            How do you knwo that, you have special access?

            Why does Russian website publish maps over Ukraine where even West of Carpatian Mointains (which were the Hungarians are living) belongs to Russia?
            They seem to have missed your message…

          • Hungarian

            Because there are 20 million Ukrainians between us and the Russians.

          • MagyarViking

            But you want them to surrender to Putin, so why should they not follow your script?

    The EU says:
    Asia for the Asians.
    Africa for the Africans.
    Arabia for the Arabs.
    Europe and Hungary for everyone.

    Jobbik says Hungary for the Hungarians
    and no to the EU.

    If nationalist parties continue to rise
    Europe may still have Europeans in 50 years.

    Right now British are a minority in London.
    Not tomorrow, right now. Gone. Lost.
    Time to start thinking about priorities folks.
