Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Maybe the disenchanted will flock to Jobbik and Jobbik will use the powers Fidesz made for itself to establish a fascist dictatorship, which will definitely come in armed conflict with neighbouring countries. (Most opposition people in Hungary I tell this reject that it is a realistic possibility, assuming that Jobbik can't get much above its present 20% figures; but based on the impressions I gained in discussions with Fidesz supporters, I wasn't convinced.)

How can Jobbik get through the safeguards Fidesz set up for itself? Do you envision Jobbik getting a 2/3 supermajority, too?
