The Thriller Film Sinks Teeth Into Hungary's Opposition !

 THRILLER FILM SINKS TEETH INTO HUNGARY'S OPPOSITION

 


 " We screwed up," reads the giant billboard on the highway into Budapest!

 

It shows the outline of former Socialist Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany's head, within which you can make out the dome of the Hungarian parliament, and the profiles of at least four of the lead characters of Hungary's new " political crime thriller".

 

The timing of the film is perfect - for Prime Minister Viktor Orban's governing Fidesz Party at least.

 

It is six months ahead of an election Fidesz is painting as a battle between good and evil: 12 years of fairy-tale rule versus the wicked Gyurcsany government which preceded it.

 

Ferench Gyurcsany himself is not taking part in the election, but a six-party opposition alliance is.

 

" WE LIED "

 The quotation " We Screwed Up " is taken from a notorious secret speech Mr Gyurcany made in May 2006, just after the Socialists had won re - election.

 

To win, he told shocked MPs, " We Lied, morning, noon and evening,: in an ugly speech brim - full of expletives.

 

When the speech was leaked on Hungarian radio in September that year, Mr Gyurcsany refused to resign, triggering large street protests.

 

The film is Hungary's first political thriller based on those events, and it is released on 21 October 2021. The English - language version is called The Cost of Deception.

 

The Democratic Coalition, the party Mr Gyurcsany founded after leaving the Socialists, is a prominent member of the opposition alliance, and his wife, Klara Dobrev, is its candidate for Prime Minister in primaries due to conclude this month.

 

Mr Orban and his Fidesz party, which has ruled Hungary almost unchallenged since 2010, portray the whole opposition alliance as a puppet show, dangling from Mr Gyurcsany's bony fingers.

 

" FOG OF FORGETTING " 

" For children's movies, the perfect timing is just before Christmas, for political thrillers the perfect time is just before elections," Gabor Kalomista told me unapologetically. He's head of Megafilm, the company that produced the film.

 

" We Hungarians are famous for forgetting our own history. It feels more comfortable to remain in the fog of forgetting, than to face up to certain facts."

 

He denies receiving public money for the film, but declines to list the names of his financial backers.

 

The film includes the remake of riot scenes from 2006, when protesters broke into the almost unguarded state television station, smashing windows and burning a presenter's car, as well a largely peaceful demonstration, when riot police opened fire with rubber bullets and tear gas.

 

Many Hungarians who witnessed those events will be watching the film closely for clues to explain the peculiar behavior of the police: sometimes over-passive, sometimes over-aggressive.

 

The right wing in Hungary has consistently argued that they were under political orders from Mr Gyurcsany himself.

 

" After much research, we put together the political puzzle...and then we were quite clear exactly what happened," said the film's producer Dorottya Helmeczy.

 

" FAST FORWARD TO OCTOBER 2021 "

Late last month the six opposition parties, ranged from left to right, held primary elections to choose a single candidate to run against Fidesz in all 106 individual constituencies next April 2022.

 

The primary was an experiment, and an unprecedented success, mobilising activists and opposition voters across the country, in towns and villages with almost no opposition presence since 2010.

 

But selecting a joint candidate for the prime ministerial post is providing more awkward.

 

" CONTROVERSIAL CANDIDATE "

 Klara Dobrev, 1 49-year-old lawyer, won  the first round.

 

But in this week's run-off that starts on Sunday and ends on October 16,2021 she faces independent conservative Peter Mark-Zay.

 

Mr Dobrev has vowed to defeat Mr Orban next spring and to " restore the rule of law and lead back Hungary to the family of European nations."

 

Many in the opposition, however, fear she cannot attract the more conservative and middle-of-the-road voters the opposition must woo to win.

 

That is largely because of her ex-prime minister husband, and her own family's Communist party history.

 

Fabor Kalomista's film thriller could prove a killer blow in the propaganda battle already begun by Fidesz.

 

" Fir Fidesz she is the dream candidate. But Peter Marki-Zay would be a Fidesz nightmare, " said Robert Laszlo, of the Political Capital think tank.

 

That is why, after weeks of political bickering, the man who came runner-up in the first primary, Budapest mayor Gergely Karacsony, pulled out at the last minute to give his opposition colleague a clear run against Klara Dobrev.

 

Mr Marki-Zay is a charismatic, provincial mayor and a practising catholic with seven children.

 

Only a centrist or consevative candidate can unite the country against Mr Orban in 2022, they argue.

 

It sounds like the plot for a different movie.

INDONESIA BERPESTA SINGKIRKAN MALAYSIA : PIALA THOMAS 2021

INDONESIA BERPESTA SINGKIRKAN MALAYSIA !

 


Perjuangan Skuad Badminton Malaysia dalam kempen untuk kemenangan dan pertarungan di Piala Thomas 2021 akhirnya ditewaskan mudah 0 - 3 di tangan musuh tradisi negara iaitu Indonesia pada aksi suku akhir di Aarhus, Denmark pada 15 Oktober 2021 (Jumaat) bermula jam 1930 malam waktu Malaysia.

 

Pada mulanya pemain perseorangan lelaki negara, Lee Zii Jia memberikan mata kekalahan pertama dalam misi mengutip mata pertama negara selepas ditundukkan begitu mudah oleh Jonathan Christie - lawan yang ditewaskannya ketika suku akhir pada Piala Sudirman dua (2) minggu lalu ( 15-21, 17-21).

 

Harapan seterusnya diletakkan ke atas pemenang pingat gangsa Sukan Olimpik Tokyo 2020 dalam acara beregu lelaki iaitu gandingan mantap kononnya Aaron Chia - Soh Wooi Yik untuk kembali menyamakan kedudukan juga memberikan jalan buntu bagi skuad badminton negara semakin sukar dilihat memberikan mata kepada pasukan. Akhirnya keputusan muktamad pemenang pingat gangsa Sukan Olimpik itu tewas di tangan pasangan nombor satu dunia, Marcus Fernaldi Gideo - Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo (17-21, 21-16, 15-21).

 

Selepas itu, harapan diberikan kepada sandaran bintang muda negara yang memberikan saingan sengit kepada lawannya. Ng Tze Yong yang diberikan tanggungjawab untuk mengalas sebagai perseorangan kedua memberikan tanda - tanda positif dalam awal perlawanannya untuk sekurang-kurangnya menghidupkan kembali perjuangan skuad negara tetapi beliau terpaksa akur di saat terpaksa bermain untuk tiga (3) set dan akhirnya tewas dalam pertarungan di tangan Jonathan Christie 21-14, 19-21, 16-21. Walaupun demikian, Ng Tze Yong boleh diharapkan untuk terus dilatih kerana semangat juang yang tinggi serta corak permainan yang boleh dipuji dengan ketangkasan yang ditunjukkan pada permainan beliau yang amat bagus berbanding corak permainan rakan senegara yang lebih senior.

 

Keputusan itu turut menyaksikan skrip yang sama berulang buat Malaysia apabila turut tewas di tangan Indonesia di peringkat yang sama pada edisi tahun 2018 di Bangkok, Thailand.

 

Selain itu, dapatlah dirumuskan di sini bahawa Malaysia bukanlah setanding dengan Skuad Badminton seperti China, Indonesia mahupun Denmark buat masa ini.

 

Tetapi skuad badminton lelaki boleh lah dibanggakan berbanding dengan skuad badminton wanita negara yang masih tidak ke mana hala tujunya.

Denies Excessive Police Force Against Protesters - SLOVENIA

LJUBLJANA, SLOVENIA

 


Slovenia's interior minister on Friday, October 08, 2021 was rejected accusations that police used excessive force to curb anti - government protests with water cannons and tear gas on the eve of a major European Union summit in the country earlier this week.

 

The demonstrations were the third in a month, organized against virus measures and the use of COVID-19 passes, including for going to work in all state-run firms. People must show that they are either fully vaccinated or that they have taken an expensive PCR test.

 

Interior Minister Ales Hojs said in Brussels that " police did their job very well during Tuesday's intervention" and were " within their jurisdiction." An investigation still has opened into police actions, he added.

 

About 25 protesters were detained and several were injured or hospitalized - mostly for inhaling tear gas.

 

" The director of the police has already ordered a commission in accordance with the law, which will investigation the legality and proportionality of all means used by the police in these protests," Hojs sai.

 

Officers in riot gear and on horses repeatedly used water cannons and tear gas to disperse the demonstrators who threatened to block roads as EU and Western Balkan leaders were arriving for the meeting.

 

The clashes led to hours - long chaos on the streets of the capital, Ljubljana, and the detention of a protester leader.

 

Zoran Stankovic, the leader of the Resni.ca party, has threatened to sue the state, saying he was kept in detention illegally. Stankovic's home and his party offices reportedly have been searched as part of the police probe against protest organizers.

 

Clashes with police have erupted at previous protests as well. On Tuesday, an AP video journalists was sprayed by a water cannon and was hit in the head with an unknown object during the police intervention.

 

Hojs refused to comment on the potential case against Stankovic, saying it was in the hands of the prosecutors. The police intervention wasn't ordered by politicians but provoked by the protesters, he insisted.

 

" The number of injured police officers, which was three times the number of injured protesters, clearly shows who exceeded jurisdiction," he said.

 

The Resni.ca party has said they would no longer organize the protests, saying this would jeopardize the liberty of their leader. The right - wing politician has denied he was using public discontent over virus measures for political campaigning.

 

Like much of Central and Eastern Europe, Slovenia in recent weeks has seen a rise in new coronavirus infections. The country of 2 million people has fully vaccinated nearly 48% of its population, a smaller share than in many other EU nations.

 

Slovenia currently holds the EU's rotation presidency.

NO TRUST IN NEWS MEDIA ' AT ALL ' IN AMERICANS

ONE - THIRD OF AMERICANS SAYS THEY HAVE NO TRUST IN NEWS MEDIA ' AT ALL '

 


American's trust in the news media has dropped to the second-lowest number on record, with one-third of the public saying they have no trust " at all," according to a new Gallup poll.

 

When it comes to reporting the news fully, accurately and fairly, 29 percent of Americans reported having " not very much " trust in newspapers, television, and radio news while 34 percent said they have " none at all."

 

Furthermore, only 7% said they have " a great deal " and 29 percent said they have " a fair amount " of confidence in the media. The combined 36 % is down four points from last year's poll and is just four (4) points above the record low in 2016. The tracking began in 1972.

 

Between 1972 and 1976, 68 to 72 percent of the public had trust in percent of the public had trust in the American media. By 1997, the number dropped to 53 percent.

 

Since then, American's trust in news reporting has averaged around 45 percent, according to Gallup. Confidence in the mass media has not risen above 50 percent since 2003.

 

Gallup reported that the " divisive presidential election campaign " between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton contributed to the 32 percent record low five (5) years ago.

 

However, in the two (2) years after the election, trust in the media grew by 13 points. Gallup attributed the growth to the Democrats' response to media scrutiny of the Trump administration, but the number began trending downward again in 2018 as everyone began losing confidence in news reporting.

 

Yet trust in the media differs significantly depending on an individual's political party.

 

According to Gallup, 68 percent of Democrats said they trust the media a fair or great deal. Among independent voters, the figure is 31 percent, and 11 percent of Republicans reported having the same level of trust. Between the two (2) major parties, the range has been between 54 and 63 points since 2017.

 

Over the past year, Democrat and independent trust has changed by five (5) points but Republicans have remained consistent. Since 1996, the GOP's confidence in fair reporting has not risen above 52%. In the new poll, 60% of Republicans reported having no trust at all in the media.

 

For Democrats, trust has not fallen below the 2016 reading of 51 percent, according to Gallup. Independents have not reached the majority level since 2003.

 

Just more than 1,000 adults living in the United States, were interviewed for the study conducted between September 1 to 17. They were asked to rank how much trust and confidence they felt in the mass media to report the news fully and accurately ranging from no opinion and none at all, to a great deal.
