Eine Kleine Nichtmusik

Witty and pertinent observations on matters of great significance OR Incoherent jottings on total irrelevancies OR Something else altogether OR All of the above

The Magyar for "jackboot" is "lovaglócsizma". This may come in handy.

Hungary's new constitution sounds deeply worrying. A purge of judges, government control of the formerly independent central bank, constitutional outlawing of abortion and same-sex marriage, increased media control, and moves which appear to be a prelude to the banning of the main opposition (Socialist) party altogether. Many religious denominations have also been outlawed.

I hope the EU will ignore Hungary's calls for financial support for its economy for as long as this disastrous constitution remains in force. For this is the first domino to fall in the resurgence of European fascism.
