Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The poverty in the north-east is mostly not Orbán's doing but the long-term effect of the collapse of heavy industry after 1990. Of course, the Orbán government did nothing to alleviate the situation, and aggravated poverty with his war on social benefits, especially in that region. The Hunger March I reported on last year (which BTW was repeated this year, meeting similar government counter-measures) originated there.

As for the Forint, check for example here. As you can see, the Forint is taking another dive.
