Quotes

"We must fight to keep this issue under national jurisdiction," he said. "I make no secret of this: we will continue with a very tough policy that does not at all encourage immigration ... For Europe to have general rules that affect all of us who think differently is out of the question."
...politics if we cooperate with the former prime minister, and they make a list of all the decisions that Bajnai made when in office," he told me. "The critics say that we are betraying the original Green mission. These are normal political debates. When the Finnish Green Party joined the six-party government coalition, they had to make a decision whether to accept the new nuclear reactors. They decided to join the coalition even though the government supported the new nuclear blocks. It was an extremely difficult decision for them and, looking back, they think they made a bad decision. But this is politics! The real debate between LMP and us is not over whether to challenge Orban or not -- or cooperate with Bajnai or not. It's whether to behave like a politicalpolitical party or like an NGO. To remain alone and not cooperate with anyone and say that we are not wiling to make any compromises - that's heroic. But that's what an NGO does, not a politicalpolitical party. What we are doing is politics, with all its difficult decisions and risks."
"Participants should focus discussion on proposing measures to mobilise more funds from the community and improve the effectiveness of humanitarian programmes" stressed Sang
...of intellectual reasons, I was very disappointed that we had a prime minister who couldn't talk, couldn't properly read," Ledenyi concluded. "He was almost illiterate. I was very unhappy on an intellectual basis, especially when Medgyessy said that we are a small country and we have to learn how to be small. My life has never been about that. Even if Orban was already hated by a lot of people, by a lot of intellectuals, he was someone who could always stand up and look like something and sound like something and have a vision."
