Politician tells truth-public dismayed

"Hungary's prime minister has admitted saying that his party lied to the public to win April's general election.

Ferenc Gyurcsany's admission came after Hungarian radio played a tape of a meeting he had with his Socialist MPs a few weeks after the election.

On it he says the party had lied to the public and his "boneheaded" government failed to introduce any real policies."

Poor people, poor Mr Gyurcsany. Obviously, the EU commissioners forgot to explain to him about not admitting to lying.

Might this be called `doing a Gyurcsany' in future? No, the name's too hard to pronounce.
