Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There is some sections of the anti-troika right here, that portray Orban as the man who stood up to IMF/EU imposed austerity and chose taxing bankers, over cutting services. I know that Hungary is keeping a high tax on banks and taxing financial transactions but is this in some way hype, or is there some truth behind the anti-IMF story?...
