Politicians Lie – What a Surprise!

Statist media is always entertaining. And how much more when I woke up this morning with a picture of the Hungarian Public Television in flames. Right there on EuroNews, in all its glory.

Unfortunately, no politicians were harmed during this footage.

“We f***ed up. Not a little, a lot,” Gyurcsany was heard saying. “No European country has done something as boneheaded as we have.”

“I almost died when for a year and a half we had to pretend we were governing. Instead, we lied morning, evening and night,” he told his fellow Socialists.

With a public deficit running at 10% of GDP, and a burgeoning welfare state, Hungary is not in an envyable position right now. If this is “pretended” governance, I shudder to think what real, meaningful governance looks like.
