HUNGARY / EU : Orban Mocks Brussels Bureaucrats.

     Speaking at a student gathering that was broadcast on TV...PM Viktor Orban mocked the EU as bureaucratic time wasters...fiddling with regs while thousands lose jobs...and the euro falters.
     "Brussels spends precious days and weeks setting the size of hen cages. They prescribe that pigs should be given toys to play with, and the mood of geese is an important European issue,"he said.
     "Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands are losing their jobs, our currency is collapsing and every day we find it harder and harder to make ends meet."
     For months...Orban has been seeking billions in loans from the IMF...but his taxing policies and other issues have scared away investors...and upset EU officials.
