Hard times make for strange bedfellows

The weekend's street demonstration in Budapest, in support of a major Government bail-out for the Peto Institute, looked a most gentle and civilised affair:

The PAI's cause is attracting a wide range of political support. The country's third largest political party Jobbik (the Movement for a Better Hungary), is far-right and ultra-nationalist. It reflects still vigorous traditions in Hungarian society that, but for the courageous intervention of Miklos Kun, might have snuffed out the very possibility of Conduction Education, in late 1944 or early 1945, before it was even born.

Now Jobbik has come out in suppport of the Pető Institute:

This was reported in the newspaper, Alfakir ('Az domináns hirportál'), more concerned until very recently for the affairs of Zolt Pető rather than of András Pető.
