Maybe the liberal intelligentsia will manage to prop up Gyurcsány or another neoliberal as saviour at least atracting urbanite voters and re-establish the old Republic, repeating Poland's recent history but with greater upheavals.
..but I didn't imagine then that Bajnai will pop up. (For the uninitiated: Bajnai, a financial sector yuppie without 'communist' background whom Gyurcsány knew as business parter, was brought in to be the PM of a fake "expert" and de-facto Socialist minority government in the last year before Fidesz took over, one which conducted yet another austerity programme. He claimed upon taking office that this one year will be all the time he spends in politics; but this week, he released a critique of the Orbán government's one and half years that sounds like an announcement of leadership competition.) Now that he did pop up, I'm not surprised that all the main non-right-wing media are jumping on-board. Paradoxically, Bajnai is less discredited than his predecessor Gyurcsány, which gives me the bad feeling that propping him up as the Socialist-DK-LMP(-IMF-ECB) candidate will be less difficult... Milla and Szolidaritás should strive to outshine him.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
