HUNGARY : Thousands of Angry Students Humble PM Orban.


     Nationalistic strong man...PM Viktor Orban, 49...has taken on the mighty IMF, the EU and strong armed his own recalcitrant parliament...but almost 2 weeks of daily protests by thousands of students...brought Orban down to his knees.
     Yesterday...Orban finally gave in...and pledged not to reduce state aid for education...as other groups threatened to join the daily student rallies that blocked many roads and bridges.
     It only took 2 weeks for Orban to concede defeat.
