Jun 13 2017 - Mafia

There is an important element in public life in Hungary which is not transparent and not open – and that is the Soros network, with its mafia-style operation and its agentlike organizations.

Apr 27 2017 - CEU

We are not as big and powerful as you are and as big as powerful as George Soros the American financial speculator attacking Hungary, who has destroyed the lives of millions of Europeans with his financial speculations, who has been fined for speculation in Hungary and who is an open enemy of the euro. In many aspects, we are unhappy with how the EU works. When we criticise the EU, it's because we want to correct these mistakes and we want to reform the European

Mar 31 2017 - CEU

This is not fair to Hungarian universities. There is competition among universities and it is inexplicable why we should put our own universities at a disadvantage ... while securing an unfair advantage for the foreign university. It makes no difference if someone is a billionaire in Hungary ... this university also has to respect the laws. Hungary is a country which always supports learning but does not tolerate

My ladies and gentlemen, the migration crisis will last until the root causes are dealt with. It will last until it is recognised everywhere that migration is the Trojan wooden horse of

Mar 07 2017 - Terrorism

Migration is the Trojan wooden horse of terrorism. The people that come to us don't want to live according to our culture and customs but according to their own – at European standards of living. We are still, at this moment, under siege. The migration flow has only slowed but it is not over. We have gained time to strengthen our lines of

Mar 07 2017

If the world sees that we can defend our borders ... then no one will try to come to Hungary illegally. Any legal regulation that facilitates terror acts must be changed in the interests of our own

The foxes are let into the henhouse to compete freely, and nobody can stop the foxes winning time after

Oct 19 2016 - London

We should not confuse immigration and migration. Because as far as I understand when you speak about immigration here in London and the U.K, you speak about mostly EU citizens coming to work to London or to the U.K. When we speak about migration we speak about the mass migration of illegal migrants entering the territory of the European Union from the outside of the EU, violating our borders, breaking our

Oct 25 2015 - Greece

Members of the European Union, especially the members of the Shengen treaty are not able or are not ready to keep their word. So we still have international agreements, everybody should keep them.

There is a clear link between illegal migrants coming to Europe and the spread of terrorism. Interestingly it is obvious in the Anglo-Saxon countries, but others deny it.
