Weird, in the Romanian region of Transilvania, the most illegal lumbering are in Hungarian area. The Democratic Union of Hungarian Party in Romania had at least half of their leaders involved in illegal logging. One of them, Attila Verestóy, was so deep in illegal logging and so untouchable that we started calling him "Attila, the chainsaw of God", as opossed to "Attila, the wip of God". Seems corrupt hungarian politicians have a knick for illegal loging.

Heh. Orban's mafia at it again. Hungary's just signed a new fossil fuel deal with Russia and are operating a new gas pipe. Not to mention that wood is nowhere near as effective a fuel to make an actual difference in economy. They just want high quality wood for sale to furniture manufacturers.

There is a huge demand for firewood at the moment from the general population, last time i heard prices are up almost 1,7 times year on year. I guess everyone is worried about gas availability. Also, we have power plants that are using biomass, including wood. I don't buy into the "corrupt government politicians want more wood for construction/furniture" because Orban's party has been ruling for the last 12 years, they could have changed laws without anyone giving a fuck, apart from a few environmentalists.

You can't have your cake and eat it too. It is wise to prepare for winter. Keep the outrage for when you are cold. Such measures are necessary in hard times.

Good that you voted Orban in. Now your children can take a walk on the field, instead in the forest.

The issue originates from, that we paid under the global price for years, so the government helped the people this way, which is pretty communist feeling to me... Than now the whole world has gone to shit thanks to the likes of Putin and the global prices risen so much, that the government kind of removed this pricing thing. After a houshold reaches a certain amount of gas (and electricity) usage, they have to pay the global price for the extra amount above that limit. The thing is, that this way, big families going to get all the sucking in the world. Getting gas bills worth of 100 000 Huf and upwards. The problem is not necessarily the global price itself, people in other EU countries can pay them. The problem, is that our money worth jack shit (worse than fucking Russia's and Ukraine's money legit), our government sucks Putin's dick and steals everywhere and everything can, while the average hungarian salary is 350 000 Huf. So paying third of your salary for gas is crazy.
