Comment is Free

In view of Tibor Fischer's piece on Hungary in the Comment is Free section of Wednesday's issue of The Guardian I asked CiF if I might write something by way of a different view.

CiF have kindly agreed that I may do so. I have now been through three drafts. I have to submit by Monday morning.

CiF is a minefield but let us tiptoe through the tulips.

Invitation - In
I'm Brazilian.
Spent reading here, and visit his blog.
I also have one, only much simpler.
I'm inviting you to visit me, and if possible follow together for them and with them. I always liked to write, expose and share my ideas with people, regardless of class Social, Religious Creed, the Sexual Orientation, or, of Ethnicity.
To me, what will interest is our exchange of ideas, and, thoughts.
I'm there in my space Simpleton, waiting for you.
And I'm already following your blog.
Strength, Peace, Friendship and Happiness
For you, a hug from Brazil.

I have just read Fischer's piece. It is obnoxious. Why on earth is CiF bent on showcasing formulaic dissembling and apologias for everything it is supposed to be against? Good luck with your much needed response.

I look forward to your reply in CiF. It is necessary if only to present a less smug and more accurate point of view.
For some strange reason many Hungarians take offence very easily and want to blame everybody else but themselves for the problems they face. It is a most unfortunate trait. Is it possible that Mr Fischer, whose performance at last year's Hay Budapest festival was its only low point, may also fit this profile. Hoping to see you here in May!
