"We lied in the morning, we lied in the evening."

No, the quote that I used for a title is not a line from a Blues or Country song, it is the actual words of the Hungarian Prime Minister. Mind ye, he had no idea those words would be made public... but still...

"Mr Gyurcsany's comments, which sparked the violence, were heard in a tape of a meeting he had with his MPs a few weeks after April's election, and leaked to local media on Sunday.

In excerpts broadcast on state radio, Mr Gyurcsany says harsh economic reforms are needed.

'There is not much choice. There is not, because we screwed up. Not a little, a lot. No European country has done something as boneheaded as we have.

Evidently, we lied throughout the last year-and-a-half, two years... You cannot quote any significant government measure we can be proud of, other than at the end we managed to bring the government back from the brink. Nothing.'

In a speech sprinkled with obscenities, Mr Gyurcsany says: 'We lied in the morning, we lied in the evening.'"

What is this? Remorse? Honesty? Among the ruling class of a Western Democracy?

Sheesh... What's next? Faithful execution of thier duties? What is this world coming to!!!
