Brussels Bureaucrats 'Switched to Turbo Mode Against Hungary', Claims Deutsch
The bureaucrats in Brussels have “switched to turbo mode against Hungary” with a debate on Hungary to be held at next week’s last plenary session ahead of the European parliamentary election, the list leader of the ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrats said.

Tamás Deutsch said in a video that “next Wednesday, the left wing majority of the EP together with the Hungarian dollar left will hold its umpteenth debate on Hungary based on the usual lies and accusations, borne out of a painfully forced pretext”.

Not even one but “right away two debates”, he added. “They attack Hungary because we say no to illegal migration and gender madness, and we continue to reject Brussels’ pro-war position, we stand on the side of peace and we believe that an immediate ceasefire and peace talks are needed,” he said.

“The European left wants to use its still existing majority in the EP to force through a catastrophic migration pact at any cost next week”, he added. “What’s more, the MEPs of the dollar left go against the Hungarian people’s repeatedly expressed will and they support this mad migration pact,” Deutsch said.

“But no matter how they scheme in Brussels, we resolutely reject the migration pact and we will not let them make a migrant country out of Hungary,” he added.

“Another thing that Brussels does not like is that we have a pro-peace position,” he said. “Brussels and the dollar left have been in a war frenzy right from the start.

The blinded pro-war people in Brussels want to expand, widen and escalate the war, which could easily lead us into a third world war,” Deutsch said. “We will not allow them to press us into war,” he added.

Deutsch said “change is needed in Brussels, the pro-war Brussels bureaucrats and the MEPs of the Hungarian dollar left scheming against their country must be chased away on June 9”.

Deutsch: Fidesz-Christian Democrats Prepare for Victory

The Fidesz-Christian Democrats are preparing for victory in the European Parliament election on June 9, the list leader of the Fidesz-Christian Democrats told public radio on Sunday.

Tamás Deutsch said the Fidesz national board had been determined to put together a “winning team” for the EP election, keeping in mind that the next EP term would be “perhaps the most difficult one” as Hungary faced even more “brutal attacks”.

He added that the Fidesz-Christian Democrats list would also represent ethnic Hungarian communities in Vojvodina, in Serbia, and Transcarpathia, in Ukraine. He said farmers’ interests would be a key issue during the five-year term, pointing to a rebellion by farmers in Western Europe against Brussels’ agriculture policies.

Deutsch said a “big, even united right-wing, conservative, sovereigntist group could take shape in the EP with the participation of Fidesz and the Christian Democrats” adding that the “European mainstream” had said for months that a “right-wing, sovereigntist strengthening” was expected in June.

Deutsch said such a group could “redraw the EU’s political map”, offering a chance for the strengthening of the right wing and giving Hungary more room for manoeuvre.

Commenting on the potential re-election of Ursula von der Leyen, Deutsch said he believed it was impossible for all of the heads of government and state from the 27 EU members to unanimously support the current European Commission president.

Meanwhile, Fidesz MP Points at 'Double Standards' by Brussels Concerning German Gas Tax

András Gyürk, an MEP of ruling Fidesz, said on Friday that a response he received from an EP official to his inquiry concerning a tax imposed by Germany on exports of natural gas to other countries has revealed the “double standards applied by Brussels” on the matter.

Gyürk said in a statement that in the response he received from the EC’s energy commissioner, Kadri Simson had acknowledged that the tax could make gas exports of the four Visegrad countries including Hungary and Austria more expensive, the EC had however failed to take any action, such as launching an infringement procedure.

This case reveals the double standards applied by Brussels, Gyürk said. Hungary has faced continued attacks ever since it introduced utility price cuts while Brussels has failed to take action against other countries that jeopardise with their measures the energy security of the [central European] region, said Gyürk.

    Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, in a radio interview on Friday, said freedom of speech was “in bad shape” in Western Europe. “In liberal societies, the institutions shaping public opinion – the media, universities, research institutions, foundations and politicians – have become homogenous, and say more or less the same thing.”
