Traditional Britain Dinner - 30th June - Márton Gyöngyösi, Jobbik, Hungary
Saturday, 30th June 2018 6:30pm
The TBG announces this year's honoured guest speaker at our annual dinner is Márton Gyöngyösi
Mr Gyöngyösi is a Member of the Hungarian Parliament, Deputy Head of the Jobbik Party and Vice-Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee.
He graduated from Trinity College, Dublin, spending his early career there and speaks perfect English.
Further information on our honoured guest and his political party:
Márton Gyöngyösi is a Member of the Hungarian Parliament for the Jobbik Party and is the party spokesman on Foreign Affairs. The party describes itself as a principled, conservative and radically patriotic Christian party, whose fundamental purpose is the protection of Hungarian national values and interests. Needless to say the inevitable attacks have been made against it by the usual suspects. However, the so-called philosopher Agnes Heller, says that Jobbik have never been an extreme right party. Since 2014 Jobbik has redefined itself and dropped some policies which enabled it to be slurred and roundly attacked in the past. Its National Board unanimously decided in favour of a traditional right-wing conservative policy approach. In both the 2014 and 2018 national elections Jobbik’s vote remained steady at around 21% and the party has 23 seats in Parliament making it the second largest party. This helps ensure that its great political rival doesn't deviate far from the path.
