Hungary: Rally Not Cancelled Amid Unrest

As the demonstrations in Budapest continue, Paul of Further Ramblings of a N.Irish Magyar isn't too hopeful about the opposition's populist leader: “On the other hand, maybe he'll use the occasion to tell, not only his supporters, but also the brain-dead thugs that democracy (i.e. the ballot box and parliament) and not destructive “street politics” is the way to get rid of Fibbin’ Ferenc?
Who knows, for the first time,he'll maybe even condemn without equivocation (i.e. a lying PM does not in any way justify beating up a policeman) this week's attacks on the police and property? I won't hold my breath.”
