There has been little increase in public debt

He who says otherwise lies

There has been little increase in public debt

Eurostat has published statistics on sluggishness in liberal circles. In the second quarter of 2020, Hungary's public debt as a share of GDP barely increased, as we increased our indebtedness in the fourth lowest proportion among the EU member states. The crisis hurts everyone, but we have been much more prepared for the crisis, with economic growth of 5% the previous year, wage growth of 10%, public debt declining for 10 years, foreign currency loans getting rid of, and could still be listed. The government was foresighted, and as a result, we were not forced into IMF credit and other lifebuoys. Not incidentally, now 4.5 million work and "produce", in 2008 that number was 3.8 million.

Our government debt-to-GDP ratio increased by 3.2% compared to the second quarter of 2019 and by 4.6% compared to the first quarter of 2020. The same figures represent 8.1% and 8.4% respectively in EU aggregates.

We are good not only in this indicator, but also in terms of the general government deficit. Our deficit rose from 4% in the first quarter of 2020 to just 9%, while the EU-27 deficit rose from 2.6% to 11.4%.

These are also very good results because, in the last two weeks of the first quarter of 2020, we put the economy on fire for almost the entire second quarter to protect against the first wave of the coronavirus epidemic. Nevertheless, we have suffered a lower GDP decline than the EU average.

The value of the results is increased by the fact that many countries were more at risk during the first wave, not introducing strict restrictions similar to ours. Everyone struggled with an unknown enemy, but not all lives seem to matter in many countries. Since then, we have identified the enemy, we can fight without a complete shutdown, so we expect even better economic indicators in the future.

EU confirms: Dobrev's minimum wage success story, which looks down on Hungarian workers and considers them sick and worthless, is as false as it is

EU confirms: Dobrev's minimum wage success story, which looks down on Hungarian workers and considers them sick and worthless, is as false as it is

(A small video for the title:https://www.facebook.com/szamokadatok/videos/878025836274864)

As her own success, Ms. Gyurcsány, born Klára Dobrev, announced that "there will be a European minimum wage". Well, by now, EB President Von der Leyen has also confirmed that what Dobrev was talking about simply does not exist. Hungary, for example, may be encouraged (not obliged) by the EU to set a minimum wage that it already pays. Thanks for nothing, Comrade Dobrev!

📌This morning is our article on the scientific background of the thing, with numbers:
https://szamokadatok.hu/Post/2198/Dobrev_Klara_amokfutasa_az_europai_minimalberrel

Since 2017, the term “European minimum wage” has played a major role in the demagogic rhetoric of left-wing parties.
First the flag of Jobbik, then led by Gábor Vona, then, when the former party president failed in the 2018 elections and the other owner of the topic, Márton Gyöngyösi, vice-president Jobbik, left for Brussels (not for the minimum wage), the Gyurcsány party to the head.

Pro-government experts have been saying for years that it is impossible to raise a uniform minimum wage in EU member states,
as a lagging Bulgarian economy would collapse if, for example, the lowest income in Luxembourg were to be coughed up by every single worker.

But, of course, it sounded extremely good, as Mrs Gyurcsányi, born Klára Dobrev, announced a week ago with a welcome smile: It is a great success that the European Parliament has supported the employment and social policy guidelines I have drawn up by a large majority. More than two-thirds of the Members voted in favor of my report, which means that the recommendations can lead to legislation that is binding on all Member States. First and perhaps most important: there will be a European minimum wage! ”

And what the reality behind the Dobrev balloons was reported by EU Commissioner for Employment and Social Rights Nicolas Schmit:

The proposal concerns the framework of minimum wages, while respecting national traditions, national competences and the freedom of contract of the social partners. It also helps protect employers who pay fair wages to employees at the same time by ensuring fair competition. (...) However, it does not oblige Member States to introduce statutory minimum wages, nor does it set a common minimum wage. '

In other words, the report of Mrs. Gyurcsány, born Klára Dobrev, meant that everything remained the same. Each EU member state sets the minimum wage level according to its own market opportunities.
And to what extent does this affect the Hungarian workers, who have been fed by the members of the Gyurcsány clan for years by raising the level of the Hungarian minimum wage to European level ?! Well, there are no indications that the European Commission will obviously not rewrite the practice based on the economic opportunities of the Member States, which is not the case for Hungarian workers.

Dobrev Klára ámokfutása az európai minimálbérrel

Hazugság vs valóság. (+ a FideszEU közleménye)

Dobrev Klára ámokfutása az európai minimálbérrel

Gyurcsányné dörgedelmes bejelentést tett, miszerint „Lesz európai minimálbér, …” (1). Ezt arra alapozza, hogy a jelentését néhány nappal ezelőtt elfogadta az EP (2). A jelentés 19. pontja foglalkozik az európai minimálbér kérdéskörével, amely kollektív szerződések és nemzeti jogszabályok révén kívánja rendezni a kérdést. A Bizottságot pedig felkéri, hogy erre adjon valamiféle keretrendszert.

Csak ennyi? Nincs itt semmi látnivaló! A felelős magyar kormány pedig nem kíván nemzeti jogköröket átruházni az EU-nak. Dobrev Klára továbbra is hangzatos demagógiát közvetít. Elmondjuk, miért.

A minimálbért természetesen mindenki növelni akarja, azonban fontos, hogy a bérek emelése az észszerűség keretein belül maradjon, mert akár ár-bér spirál is kialakulhat.

Az európai minimálbér ötlete évekkel Dobrev EP-képviselőségének kezdete előtt megfogant (3), ő csak felült a vonatra. Dobrev folyamatosan hangzatos demagógiát közvetített, alig lehet kihámozni, hogy mire gondol. Egységes összeg nyilván kivitelezhetetlen lenne, de végül mint kiderült elképzelése szerint a minimálbért az átlagbér legalább 60%-ára kellene emelni minden tagállamban (4), (5).

Ezek nagyon magasztos célok, azonban a probléma mindössze az, hogy mindenki más ezt a kérdést máshogy gondolja (6), (7), (8). A világ és az EU túlnyomó része szerint a minimálbért a mediánbér és nem az átlagbér 60%-ához kellene kötni. Sőt sokan a mediánbér 50-60%-os tartományát már elfogadhatónak tartják, továbbá az átlagbér 50%-áról beszélnek. Tudjuk, hogy a mediánbér összege az országok túlnyomó részében 80% körüli része az átlagbérnek. Dobrev az átlagbér 60%-áról hadovál, azaz a mediánbér akár 75%-át kifizetné minimálbérként. Ez gazdaságilag lehetetlen az EU-tagállamok nagy részében.

Az Eurostat nem rendelkezik a minimálbér és a mediánbér arányáról pontos számokkal, csak az átlagbérhez képest közöl adatokat (9), amely 2019-ben 42.4% volt Magyarországon. Azonban az OECD országok (nagyon sok közülük EU tagállam) mediánhoz képesti statisztikáját megnézve (8) Magyarország már 2017-ben is az előkelő 52%-os értékkel rendelkezett.

Elmondható, hogy Magyarország igencsak jól áll a minimálbér tekintetében mind a mediánbér 60%-ához képest (lásd diagram), mind pedig az átlagbér 50%-ához képest is (9). Felvetődik, hogy az EU többségét alkotó azon tagállamok, ahol rosszabb a helyzet, mint Magyarországon, hogy vélekednek a kérdésről, ha mellébeszéd helyett már konkrét számokról van szó.

A minimálbér összege 161 000 Ft 2020-ban, miközben 210 600 Ft a garantált bérminimum összege, amelyhez legalább szakmunkásbizonyítvány és képesítést igénylő munkakör szükséges. A garantált bérminimum 30%-kal magasabb a minimálbérnél, tehát a garantált bérminimumot kereső szakmunkások már európai minimálbért keresnek most is.

Közben azért Dobrev is leszállt a magas lóról (10), mert szembejött a valóság Ursula von der Leyen és az Európai Bizottság képében. Azt persze nem tudjuk, hogy szándékosan beszél az átlagbér 60%-áról vagy annyira ostoba, hogy összekeveri a mediánbért és az átlagbért.

A PM adatai szerint 2020. év elején 250 ezer munkavállaló dolgozott minimálbérért és 800 fő garantált bérminimumért. Mindkét kategóriát tekintve összesen 250 ezres csökkenést látunk 2018-hoz képest (11).

Fidesz EU közleménye:

Az Európai Bizottság minimálbér-javaslata a magyar modellt, az adócsökkentést, a családtámogatást, a stabil költségvetést, a munkahelyteremtést és a bérnövekedést támogatja

Az Európai Bizottság a minimálbérekre vonatkozó uniós irányelv-javaslatot terjesztett elő. A bizottsági javaslat megerősíti azt a gazdaságpolitikai irányt, a magyar modellt, amely az adócsökkentésre, a családtámogatásokra, a stabil költségvetésre, a munkahelyteremtésre és a folyamatos bérnövekedésre épül.

Az Európai Bizottság a minimálbérekre vonatkozó uniós irányelv-javaslatot terjesztett elő.

A minimálbérekre vonatkozó uniós irányelv-javaslat előkészítése során két egymással teljesen ellentétes elképzelés ütközött. A baloldal olyan intézkedéseket javasolt, amelyek növelik az eladósodást, radikális adóemeléssel járnak, elbocsátásokhoz, a munkanélküliség növekedéséhez vezetnek és gyengítik a gazdaságot. A magyar emberek 2010 előtt a saját bőrükön tapasztalhatták, hogy milyen súlyos következményei vannak ennek a baloldali gazdaságpolitikának a személyes életükre, a megélhetésükre. Ezekben az években csaknem egymillióval kevesebb embernek volt munkája és a mainál jóval alacsonyabb bért kaptak.

Ezzel az igazságtalan és embertelen gazdaságpolitikával szemben az Európai Bizottság javaslata az Orbán-kormány gyakorlatát, a magyar modellt megerősítve az adócsökkentést, a családok támogatását, a stabil költségvetést, a munkahelyteremtést és a bérnövekedést támogatja.

Dobrev Klára Gyurcsány Ferenc teljesítményét is megszégyenítő hazudozásával szemben Nicolas Schmit, a foglalkoztatásért és a szociális jogokért felelős uniós biztos elmondta, hogy a minimálbér irányelvet alkalmazva sem fogják az emberek minden országban ugyanazt a bért kapni. “Ez teljesen lehetetlen lenne. Tönkretenné a gazdaságot, ha holnap Bulgária elfogadná a luxemburgi minimálbért. Holnap után már nem lenne bolgár gazdaság. Tehát ez nem lehetséges. (…) Tehát nagyon világos leszek a polgárok számára is: nem ígérünk minden európai számára azonos minimálbért. Nem egy egységes minimálbért vezetünk be egész Európában. Ez nem lenne reális. Ez teljesen lehetetlen lenne. Sőt felelőtlen. (…) Tehát erről szól ez az irányelv, nem határoz meg egyetlen egyedi minimálbért egész Európának.”

A Fidesz-KDNP európai parlamenti képviselői támogatják a magyar kormány erőfeszítéseit, hogy kiemelten kezeli a bérek folyamatos emelését: 2013 óta töretlen a reálkeresetek növekedése Magyarországon, és ez a tendencia idén is folytatódott. A minimálbérek emelkedése a 2010-es 73.500 Ft-os összegről 2020-ra 161.000 Ft-ra nőtt, tehát több mint kétszer akkora ma a magyar minimálbér, mint Gyurcsányék idejében volt. A bérek folyamatos emelése mellett jelenleg Magyarországon közel egymillióval több embernek van munkája, mint 2010 előtt volt.

The Hungarian government has challenged the Mobility Package in the European Court of Justice

The Hungarian government has challenged the Mobility Package in the European Court of Justice

(The left would never have done it! They always just give up, give up our national interests. The left has not voted for the 12 billion euro funds for Hungarian farmers either!https://www.facebook.com/szamokadatok/posts/210182907125517)

We will not allow Western European competitors to make the Hungarian and entire Central European transport sector impossible with protectionist regulation introduced into EU regulations, Judit Varga wrote on her Facebook page.

Today, the Hungarian government challenged certain provisions of the Mobility Package in the Court of Justice of the European Union and demanded their annulment, the Minister of Justice announced.

The new EU rules on road transport adopted by the European Parliament and the Council and similar protectionist measures undermine the EU's internal market and deliberately strengthen the unjustified competitive advantage of Western European Member States, the head of the ministry explained.

The impugned directives and regulations violate the prohibition of discrimination, are contrary to the EU's climate protection goals or are directly unenforceable, he stressed.

In addition to Hungary, eight other member states - Bulgaria, Cyprus, Estonia, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta and Romania - have consistently opposed the regulation, Judit Varga wrote.

They voted! EUR 12 billion (approximately HUF 4,200 billion) is EU funding for Hungarian farmers until 2027

(The amount is almost the same as the amount of resources that can be used in the period 2014-2020!)

They voted!  EUR 12 billion (approximately HUF 4,200 billion) is EU funding for Hungarian farmers until 2027

🧡Fidesz supported the proposal!
⛔️The left attacked Hungarian farmers in the back, voted no!🤮

They proved once again that they are the enemies of Hungary. They are angry when we say this, but in the meantime we state that with their NO vote they are not harming Orbán, but Hungarian farmers, ie all of us, as subsidies will make products cheaper, the Hungarian economy will be more crisis-tolerant and Hungarian farmers will be more competitive. The package also contains 30 percent environmental regulations, the left wanted Hungarian farmers to devote at least 50 percent of their resources to environmental protection, which is unrealistically much! 30% is not enough, but it is a compromise solution for the benefit of all of us and our future.

The left attacked Hungarian farmers in the back.
The European Parliament voted on Friday on the Union's Common Agricultural Policy until 2027. The proposal means billions of euros for Hungarian farmers. Hungarian left-wing MEPs did not support this. Fortunately, this time a majority in the European Parliament showed sobriety and voted in favor of the proposal, along with representatives of the Fidesz-KDNP.

In the future, the focus will be on results and performance, not on rules and compliance. The shift from a one-size-fits-all approach to a personalized approach will help make the policy more relevant to those who implement it on the ground. This approach gives Member States much more freedom to decide how best to meet common objectives and come up with effective solutions in response to the needs of their farmers, rural communities and society as a whole.

At EU level, an additional € 10 billion will be available through the Horizon Europe research program. This amount is intended to support research and innovation activities specifically related to the food industry, agriculture, rural development and the organic economy. Horizon Europe will play a key role in building the knowledge base needed to modernize the agricultural sector. Synergies between Horizon Europe (transnational projects) and the CAP (regional / local level projects and CAP networks) will help build an agricultural knowledge base and innovation system aimed at accelerating the diffusion of innovative practices among all actors in rural areas.

The Commission proposes to maintain the existing list of potentially eligible sectors (ie those eligible for voluntary coupled support since 2013. In addition, the Commission proposes to extend this list to non-food crops used for the production of products (short rotation coppice, woody energy crops and trees), which are potentially suitable as a substitute for fossil fuels.

How will the future CAP help young farmers?

One of the main priorities of the post-2020 common agricultural policy is to make the agricultural sector more attractive to young people and to help them set up viable production facilities. The proposed regulation provides for a number of measures, partly mandatory and partly voluntary, to support young farmers:
Member States must specifically devote at least 2% of the funds allocated to direct payments to helping young people to set up an agricultural business - either in the form of a supplement to the basic income support or a start-up aid; Member States have the option of allocating more amounts to support young farmers if they deem it appropriate.
The amount of support for the establishment of young farmers and business start-ups in rural areas will increase to 100 thousand euros.
In the Common Strategic Plan for the Common Agricultural Policy, each country must come up with a concrete idea of ​​how it plans to increase the attractiveness of agriculture to young people and support young farmers. The strategy for this should also address how national and EU funding can be used more consistently and effectively for this purpose.
The funds available to support rural development can be used for measures to improve access to land and the transfer of land, as this has traditionally been a major barrier to young people interested in agriculture taking up farming. These measures could include: the establishment of economic partnerships between different generations of farmers; the provision of farm succession and conversion planning services; provision of brokerage services relating to the purchase of land; creation of innovative national or regional organizations that facilitate or promote cooperation between young and old farmers, etc.
Young producers will continue to receive investment support and knowledge transfer / training through rural development funds.
Member States will have the opportunity to set up financing instruments to provide young farmers with working capital, as access to resources is often a major obstacle for them, given that setting up an agricultural business requires a significant investment with a low initial return. . In addition, the Commission will work more closely with the European Investment Bank, in particular on the "fi-compass" platform, to learn from experience and best practices in supporting young farmers.

Reality about "union money"

Reality about "union money"

Statement by Dr. Balázs Orbán, Deputy Minister, Parliamentary and Strategic Secretary of State at Transit.
📌Video:https://www.facebook.com/FideszHU/videos/633027274073571

75 percent of investment sources are domestic. The remaining 25 percent is not a gift either, we give our market and our workforce for it. EU funds account for 3-4 percent of GDP, roughly as much as a car factory produces. EU funds go to the Member States. So these are not donations, but in return we opened our markets when we joined the EU, we suffered the related damage, we opened our labor markets - said Balázs Orbán in the discussion with Katalin Cseh.

Compared to the EU, there is no shortage of teachers in Hungary!

"Educational health professionals" - pay attention again!

Compared to the EU, there is no shortage of teachers in Hungary!

We looked at how many children / students a teacher in Hungary receives in the most popular forms of education (kindergarten, primary, secondary and higher education) and what is the EU average. The fewer students a teacher gets, the better the teacher supply. Projected: we are doing well.

Bence Rétvári has previously compared Hungary with OECD countries in terms of educational expenditure, but has also shown that while there are 12 children per teacher in Hungary, the OECD average is 14.

We have now visualized Eurostat data, which works on the basis of the ISCED 2011 classification system, thus providing a uniform system for international statistics, but can also be interpreted by country. In the case of kindergarten, the ED02 category was taken into account, in the case of primary education the average of the ED1 and ED2 categories, in the case of secondary education the ED3 category, and in the case of higher education the ED6-8 category. In ISCED terminology, ED2 means lower secondary, which is in our 5-8. corresponds to our grade.

It can be seen that in the case of kindergarten, primary education and higher education, fewer students per teacher in Hungary than the EU average, ie our teacher supply is better than in the EU, which is elevated by loopy liberals. Only in the case of secondary education do we have a slight lag.

This means that there are no more teachers anywhere else, there is at least such a shortage of teachers everywhere. But if we want to be a whip and not want to break an alliance of many countries, then of course there is no shortage of teachers, everything is working fine in the EU, and even in Romania, the fence is made of sausage. Yeah, but then in Hungary too! In fact, even more here!

Finally, a small excerpt on German education:

According to Jouruvá, Hungarian people are "not in a position to form an independent opinion"

We think he is the one who is not in this situation. The Hungarian press market is balanced, thank you, it is fine!

According to Jouruvá, Hungarian people are "not in a position to form an independent opinion"

Viktor Orbán and Judit Varga also distanced themselves from Jourová's insulting statements, and we suspended all contact with the Vice President of the EC. We wrote 2 articles about this, links to the article company.

THIRD QUARTERS OF VOTERS ARE REACHED BY ALL POLITICAL PAGES

The Hungarian press market is balanced, and the same amount of information is obtained from conservative as well as left-liberal sources - according to the latest analysis of the Media Review Center. The study provides a comprehensive picture of the situation of the Hungarian press market, pointing out that the number of left-liberal media has been growing steadily since 2010, and that Hungary's most significant media companies are profitable regardless of their relationship with the government.

1. Easy access

The Hungarian media, regardless of their attitude to the government and their political affiliation, is easily accessible to anyone throughout the country. The population has a particularly high level of equipment: 3.8 million households have 3.7 million television subscriptions; the number of internet subscriptions exceeds the population of the country; 91 per cent of adults have a mobile phone, and 73 per cent of them also use it for internet access - according to the analysis of the Hungarian Media Situation Center. According to them, access to all news sources is widely provided in Hungary, with 89.2 per cent of the population over the age of 18 watching television, 75.4 per cent using the Internet, 50.7 per cent listening to radio and 27.1 per cent reading the print press. In addition, 66.6 percent of the adult population has a Facebook registration, which is the most popular social media platform in Hungary. Nearly three-quarters of those surveyed by the Research Point Workshop, or 74 percent, are at least weekly, and 47 percent are daily consumers of social media news, and 16 percent are the primary source of information for them.

2. Balanced

The Media Review Center also examined the political balance of the media market. 95% of the Hungarian adult population, ie 7.7 million people, are regular media consumers, and trust in the media is in line with the EU average. The Hungarian media market is balanced: the same amount of information is obtained from conservative as well as left-liberal sources, the former representing 84 percent, ie 6.8 million, the latter 83 percent, ie 6.7 million people. The number of those who are equally informed by the media on both sides is almost six million, meaning that at least 75 per cent of the electorate is guaranteed access to the views of each political side.

3. Hungarian owned

The last decade has brought a real turnaround in the Hungarian media market, both on the right and on the left. During the change of regime, a number of capital-intensive foreign investors skilled in media operations appeared in Hungary: the German Axel Springer, the Swiss Ringier and the German Bertelsmann dominated the Hungarian media market for two decades. Springer is the publisher, informs the Media Viewing Center. In 2014, Sanoma's interests were acquired by the Central Group, which is owned by the Hungarian billionaire Zoltán Varga, who is said to have a left-liberal connection. Centrál Médiahmä Zrt. Is currently the publisher of one of the largest, million-dollar left-liberal news portals, 24.hu, but it also has a significant market share for public and economic HVG, which is present both in the printed market and online. . Also after 2014, one of the major players in the Hungarian media market, Mediaworks Hungary Zrt., Became Hungarian-owned. Hungarian Nation or Mandiner. One of the most important online portals, origo.hu, also fell into Hungarian hands in 2015, after Magyar Telekom, which is majority-owned by German Deutsche Telekom, sold it to New Wave Media Kft. In 2015. In its analysis, the Media Viewing Center points out that the foreign TV market has a significant foreign presence, as RTL Group owns the RTL Club, which broadcasts the country's most accessible news program, and several major cable channels. However, the TV2 Group is Hungarian-owned, which operates the other dominant national channel, TV2, as a competitor of RTL Klub. The analysis shows that in the market of politically decisive media - in terms of the number of press products - a 95% Hungarian ownership share has developed - the analysis shows.

4. Left-liberal growth

One of the important features of the Hungarian plural media world is that thanks to the permissive legal regulations, it is easy and fast to establish new media, so new press products appear regularly on the Hungarian media market. According to the Media Viewing Center, it is a remarkable phenomenon that the number of left-liberal media has been steadily increasing since 2010, increasing from 33 to 48 by 2020, which means a 45 percent increase. The Hungarian regulation adopted in 2010 prescribes minimum, easily achievable conditions in connection with the establishment of a media: practically only those who wish to launch a new media have an obligation to notify.

5. They can be profitable

It can be stated that Hungary's most significant media companies, regardless of their relationship with the government, are profitable. In addition to political newspapers, the portfolios of these companies often include thematic and tabloids, which can provide a more stable operating environment while reaching a wider consumer base, and it is not uncommon for them to deal with book publishing or online services. Only Magyar Jeti Zrt., Which publishes the left-liberal 444.hu, is unable to find a - now traditionally - sustainable business model, which can hardly be explained by its (hostile) relationship with the government; .

6. Free from anything

Hungary guarantees the freedom of the press and expression in its constitution and laws, and the Hungarian media market implements these freedoms even to the detriment of individual or community rights, emphasizes the analysis of the Media View Center. This is because media actors or those who express themselves prefer to publish content that violates human dignity, the religious beliefs of communities, but does not shy away from even calling for the violent overthrow of power. On the cover of the Hungarian Orange left-liberal weekly, he portrayed Viktor Orbán with a Hitler mustache, the daily Népszava published a caricature of Christ, and the new online portal of Mérce provided space for revolutionary journalism. The Media Viewing Center notes that the conservative media, however, criticizes the person and activities of György Soros with preference.

7. Strong independence

The media authorities of many EU member states are subordinate to governments, often directly under ministries, while the Hungarian National Media and Communications Authority and its Media Council, in addition to having their own revenues, are subject only to a cardinal law requiring a two-thirds majority in Parliament. This practice also severely removes the media watchdog from the executive, compared to many Member States of the European Union.

8. Severe sanctions

From the examination of the decisions of the Media Council of the National Media and Communications Authority, the Media Review Center clearly states that the Hungarian media authority punishes conservative media more often and more severely than the left-liberal one. More than two-thirds of the cases sanctioned by the independent media authority between 2012 and 2020 were on the right, while less than one-third were related to left-liberal media, with 66 per cent of the fines imposed, ie HUF 357 million conservative, and only 34 per cent, ie HUF 183 million, paid by left-liberal media.

9. Government information

It serves the government to inform the public about the so-called Government briefing, a joint press conference by the Minister in charge of the Prime Minister and the Government Spokesperson, at which representatives of the left-liberal and right-wing media are free to ask any questions. In its analysis, the Media Review Center draws attention to the fact that in parliamentary systems it is rare for Members of Parliament to be able to ask the Prime Minister directly on any subject during parliamentary Question Time without first sending a specific question, to which the Prime Minister is obliged to answer.

10. Bias here and there

The political bias of public service media towards governments has been the subject of constant criticism around the world and across Europe. There are two types of media out of public money in Hungary: public service media and local government press products. The Media Review Center points out that although the greatest attention is usually paid to the previous one, ie the public service media, after the 2019 elections, most of the capital and its districts, as well as ten of Hungary's 23 major cities, came under political opposition. In some places, there was a change of editor-in-chief, and the publicly funded municipal press products of the opposition-led cities began to display the values ​​and messages of the left-liberal side.

The "willkommenskultur" has failed, the Germans are fleeing their homeland

According to Spöttle, European migration policy is a complete failure

The "willkommenskultur" has failed, the Germans are fleeing their homeland

Two hundred thousand Germans leave their homeland every year due to migration, many of them come to Hungary - pointed out security policy expert Georg Spöttle.

Georg Spöttle, a security policy expert and analyst at the Perspective Institute, called the European channel's current migration policy on Sunday morning a complete failure. He said one-fifth of Germany’s population already had a migratory background and the trend could be seen to be strengthening. The birth rate of the native German population is extremely low, that of people with a migrant background is 3.4-4.2, depending on the ethnic group. It follows that in twenty years the German population will be halved, but there are cities where they are already close to it, he pointed out.

He added that roughly 200,000 Germans leave their homeland in a year, mostly retirees who say they don’t feel safe, don’t feel good in their homeland because of migration. Hungary is a popular destination country, partly because of its migration policy, and partly because there are many Swabian settlements where they speak German, he said.

He also pointed out that issuing states, such as Afghanistan or Pakistan, are reluctant to readmit illegal migrants stranded on the Balkan route, having only been able to return about 1,500 people in the last five years.

According to Georg Spöttle, the authorities know of more than 500,000 people in Denmark who are in the process of applying for asylum, and there are 272,000 migrants in Germany who have been legally convicted of having to return home because they are not entitled to political asylum. The same proportions in Italy or Spain, he explained, adding:

Germany has spent € 120 billion on migrants since 2015, and that doesn’t pay off because they don’t start working, illegal immigrants don’t fit in.

The decline of the Hungarian economy is smaller than the EU average

The decline of the Hungarian economy is smaller than the EU average

EU economic data for the second quarter of 2020 have come out. Compared to the same period of the previous year, Hungary's GDP fell by 13.5% in the second quarter, which is more favorable than the EU average (14.1%). The Eurozone produced an even bigger decline: 15%.

It is encouraging that while at the bottom of the 2009 economic crisis, the left-liberals reduced Hungary's GDP by 8%, the EU average decline stopped at 6%. And now we are better than average.

Hungary's economy is open, which means that it has strong foreign trade. However, this also means that the hectic nature of the economies of trading partners also has a significant impact on the Hungarian economy. In light of this, we see even more encouraging numbers.

The third quarter issue will be really interesting. Considering the job-preserving, job-creating measures, tax benefits, economic recovery measures, we can be optimistic.

Of course, the numbers could be compared to the previous quarter, but that doesn’t give a realistic picture. Life stopped at our place in mid-March, and somewhere two weeks before. That's the first quarter. So in many places the economy has started to fall earlier. In Q2, everyone came out of the virus in roughly the same way, and those who started earlier often relaxed first. If we look at the numbers for Q1, the fall relative to the fall would show a distorted picture, as if we were looking at the total fall compared to a year earlier.

There are states that have not introduced strict restrictions for economic protection. In return, several died, but the most unfortunate, e.g. Sweden even produced a decline of 8.3%. Then Spain (22.1%), France (19%) and Italy (17%) performed poorly. Austria approx. stands the same as we do (13.3%). The German economy weakened by only 11.7%, which is good news for Hungarian exports.
