A very desperate speech

The left-wing parties had their own gathering to drum up support for their "unity coalition" last weekend. Their leftist coalition represent the socialists, the liberals and the greens in Hungary. The left-wing parties currently have very low support going into the general election according to the most recent polls. This video shows the former disgraced socialist Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany giving a pre-election speech at a rally. My first thought when watching this video was "Why the hell are you yelling like a maniac for?"

The hate, fear and jealousy of the popular Fidesz government is quite evident in the tone of his speech to his supporters. The leftists can yell all they want, but it will do them no good at all. Another conservative Fidesz majority government is expected again. By the way, did you know that Ferenc Gyurcsany used to be the president of the Organisation of Young Communists (KISZ) in Hungary in the 1980s?
