A real people's movement or just a virtual Facebook page? Leaders of the new opposition or just a bunch of political amateurs? The Milla movement is a new phenomenon on the Hungarian political scene, but some have doubts about what they and the Together 2014 coalition can really achieve in the coming years.

The point is that reasonable people may disagree about the right policy prescription for these times of economic crisis. And given the sometimes differing interests and objectives of the IMF and a government that must be accountable to its citizens, it’s perfectly understandable if the two parties sometimes disagree.

Last week, attention turned to an issue that will have important impact on Hungary’s economy: the European Union’s excessive debt procedure with Hungary.

Here's an amazing coincidence: Hungarian NATO pilots and their Afghan colleagues reunited unexpectedly after more than 20 years in Kabul, where human lives can depend on personal relations.

The tens of thousands of demonstrators showed how polarised Hungarian society has become under the rule of the pugnacious prime minister Viktor Orban.

Our hands. They sweat on the cold bottle, and our clothes smell of gasoline. Although it's cold, the window is open, and perspiration drips from our forehead. The buzz gets stronger and stronger. The few remaining shards of glass clink in the broken window. The watcher hiding on the upper story of the building opposite raises his hand. It's our signal. Running to the window. Throwing without aiming.

Gordon Bajnai's return to politics comes as no suprise. Nor should it surprise that the left-liberal opposition to Viktor Orbán's government remains so fragmented that it is incapable of taking any steps together in the same direction. Cooperation among the opposition will prove difficult.

More than a decade into the 21st century, Admiral Miklós Horthy's legacy is still a matter of hot political debate in Hungary. While not surprising, it has become somewhat tragicomic. Horthy is a part of our history. We have certainly had better leaders than Horthy. But we have also had worse. Could sober minds find some less-controversial and more acceptable historical figures to honor?

„The sooner European leaders realize that the euro, as presently constructed, cannot work, the quicker they will save it” – says John O’Sullivan conservative columnist and political commentator who also served as a senior policywriter and speechwriter for Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Hungarian Globe caught up with O'Sullivan during his recent trip to Budapest to participate in the opening of the Cardinal Mindszenty exhibition at the House of Terror Museum. In the interview, O'Sullivan suggests that the euro should be divided into two parts: a southern, soft one and a northern, strong one. He opposes the proposal of Viviane Reding for quotas for women in corporate management and thinks a federal EU would not work. We also got his insights on British politics and the Tories.

"Ten million freedom fighters," Orbán says. "That has some advantages, but from the governmental side it’s difficult."

The Movement for a Better Hungary, or Jobbik as it is known in Hungarian, a surprisingly strong, radical right-wing party, seemingly came from nowhere. The media howled in 2009 and 2010, when, after years of Hungarian politics without radicals, Jobbik won 14 percent of the vote in the Hungarian elections for the European parliament and 16 percent of the vote in the elections for the Hungarian parliament. What is Jobbik? Did it really come from nowhere? Or is it just a new version of an old political tradition?

Thankfully the benefits of the internet are being felt more widely than ever. But to keep it safe while extending its reach, we need to relearn what it's actually for: open societies and free communication.

Last spring, when a Jobbik MP gave an antisemitic speech in parliament, he was fervently denounced by politicians of all stripes, and Prime Minister Viktor Orban reacted by inviting a prominent Budapest rabbi to parliament and pledging his government's support for the Jewish community.

Does Hungary want a deal with the IMF or not? Based on the latest evidence, the answer is: Maybe, but not at the IMF’s price.

Here in the United States, our voter registration rate is somewhere between 66 and 75 percent. But no one is going on a hunger strike over that.

Hungary surprised markets last month by cutting its base rate, but the decision was opposed by Governor Andras Simor and central banks across the region have hesitated to relax policy, fearing it could destabilise their currencies.
