Not for the first time the valuable site in the Buda hills around Kútvölgi út in Budapest is attracting the interest of powerful forces with priorities other than Conductive Education and motor disorders.
This was reported in a week ago in a pro-government newspaper Magyar Idők ('Hungarian Times'). This was flagged up very briefly on Conductive World's Facebook page, where it caused no apparent excitement:
Here's the gist of the Hungarian news item in English, for those who consider such matters.

Things are still in the air.
Years ago the site across Villányi út was subject to plans for a massive International Pető Institute but this came to nothing when a misjudged International Appeal met no significant response.
