Jolly bad luck

Poor Csanad Szegedi, who is a Hungarian member of the European Parliament representing a Far Right party called Jobbik.

For some years now Szegedi has been making fiery anti-semitic speeches but has now found out that he is in fact Jewish. It's the sort of unlucky turn that could befall any nutcase.

Jobbik have asked him to resign his post on the grounds that he was confronted with the information in 2010 but tried to bribe people to keep quiet about it.

Szegedi says 'I think that what counts is not to know who is a pure race Hungarian, the important thing is the way one behaves as a Hungarian.'

I hadn't realised that hypocrisy meant you had to resign as an MEP; presumably we'll be losing quite a few more.
