Budapest misses you, Mr. Tarlós!There was order in your time, now weeds, traffic jams, stinks, homeless people and strange "flags" characterize the Capital of the Nation ... :(
István Tarlós: Gyurcsány's statements evoke the fifties
According to István Tarlós, the communication of the left, led by Ferenc Gyurcsány, also touched on values that have been healthily embedded for centuries, such as the role of families in society. The former mayor also told the Mediaworks News Center that the left's misleading slogans about the government's "anti-Budapest" policy are an integral part of the left-liberals' election campaign.
- The methods and style of the left in the capital are illustrated in two areas. One is working with a dragged and uninitiated organization, the other is hostile communication - István Tarlós told the Mediaworks News Center.
They play for a time
The former mayor believed that in connection with work, mention could also be made of promises announced with great vehemence, but redeemed to almost zero. It has been practically two years since the new cycle, he continued, and there is no achievement.
- We did not leave a prepared work behind, but in the case of these (for example, Chain Bridge, Blaha Lujza Square) it is not known for what real purpose we could witness difficult time explanations. The flood protection works on the Aranyhegyi stream have also come to a complete halt, and the number of repeated plantings has been negligible.
In contrast, an unbridled ideology has perpetuated the unbridled narrowing of important road throughput. This forced decision has consequences not only from the point of view of transport, but also from the point of view of environmental protection, contrary to the announced intention, explained István Tarlós, who is currently acting as Prime Minister responsible for the development of the national transport and public service infrastructure.
The former mayor pointed out that the frequented public spaces are also noticeably more neglected than before, while the prepared investments are slipping.
- The infrastructure refurbishment of the M3 metro is a long-running work and will be essentially two-thirds completed by 2019. The current city management has little to do with the fight against the Béke tér wastewater complex. We fought it during the operation of the Public Development Council before 2019, largely as a result of the action of Mayor József Tóth, the former mayor listed, emphasizing that harder and harder work than can be explained can hardly be denied.
"Of course, I'm not saying that in our time everything went like a hoop." However, this pace, which is now being experienced, may already raise suspicions that this may not be a random process.
It is a question of what the actual motivation is. I think less and less that the reason would be simple dilettantism, Tarlós said.
In his words, the real decision-makers behind the current mayor are neither routine nor “stupid”. - At this point we can link the issue of communication to the previous ones. It is an open secret that the left has now launched a fierce struggle for a possible acquisition of parliamentary power. They also get enough slices for this.
It is not at all unrealistic to think that the extreme assertion and demonstration of the government's so-called "anti-Budapest" policy could be a conscious concept on the left.
But that's not true, but at least it's a grossly exaggerated narrative, the retired mayor pointed out.
He reminded that when the management of the capital was handed over, 200 billion forints of funds were left in the coffers, and the only serious reduction of funds on the part of the government was the partial withholding of the local business tax. - On the other hand, what had a more moderate impact than the one published in the public opinion affected the payments of the largest taxpayers the least. Free parking has also had a limited impact on the capital’s municipality, as most of the parking fees go to the district budgets. It is also a common delay that the government is only now delaying the transfer of HUF 6 billion to support the renovation of the Chain Bridge. We would have received it at a later stage as well, said István Tarlós.
He called it a strong slip that during his mayor’s craft, all the resources were received in good time, and “now zebra” the government punishes only the poor left.
- Indeed, for various reasons, for example, we sometimes fought for the resources of BKV. In short, especially considering the difficulties of the epidemic situation affecting the government as well, we run the risk that the financial support of the current city administration will not differ from ours to a relevant extent, said the former first man of Budapest.
According to István Tarlós, the above-mentioned communication of the left may also include the intention of tactics aimed at the expulsion of the government (and at the same time the former city administration). - Politicians and sympathetic journalists on the left are obviously reluctant to hear this, arguing against it wildly, but from this the statement may still contain serious elements of truth. Feel free to add that a number of investments can still be made with the support of the government. These include the reconstruction of the quay or the further renewal of BKV's vehicle fleet, but also the southern Danube bridge or the so-called metro line 5, the prime minister said. According to his summary assessment, the offensive, “bottomless” communication of the left is compounded by a whole series of disproportionate, rude “recalls” in Budapest. "And from the" pointing back "of any degree, the left-liberal side in our time trembled like a frog in a jelly in Miskolc, - István Tarlós recalled.
Depreciation of all values
- This communication goes astonishingly far in every other sense, independent of the average person's political sympathy or antipathy. For many centuries, it has also been about healthy embedded values (such as the role of families in society), but it also interprets the natural interests of the nation in an individual way (such as the issue of dealing with illegal immigration).
And the tone of some left-wing leaders sometimes reminds me of the fifties. For example, the farce of Ferenc Gyurcsány, András Fekete-Győr, but also the thought-provoking Ákos Hadházy with allegations against him in the defamation case.
The candidate of the Momentum cynically, mockingly, would say that he would waive his immunity, but this would not be accepted by Parliament. But under current law, a representative cannot waive his or her immunity. The defamed person can only initiate private prosecution, in which case the parliament does not extradite the member. Defamation is a category of the Criminal Code, therefore it is never possible to convict Hadházy in such a case in civil litigation. That is why he offers this with deceitful sarcasm. Anyway, it is at least as ridiculous as shameful that Hadházy, as the quasi-number one complainant in the country, has the ability to talk about “getting bored” of the applicant, while slandering others without risk - and aware of his inviolability - explained István Tarlós.
