“Viktor Orbán is not a homeroom teacher in this sense. Viktor Orbàn has created a clique within the class that terrorizes the entire class, and Viktor Orbán is the gang leader of this clique.

Honorable Minister, I hope you’ve had time since Christmas to look into what the situation is with MET because recently, as the minister responsible for that area, you acted as if you’ve never in your life heard of MET, which happens to own the biggest gas-fired electricity plant.

It’s quite obvious that the rise of MET is directly related to the decline and deterioration of MVM.

Or depriving someone of private property. We need a Europe where it does not even occur to citizens that they need to fear the state. Because we are not afraid!
