A Hungarian lawmaker has mocked former Fidesz MEP József Szájer by holding up a drainpipe in Parliament. József Szájer resigned last week after he was caught by police fleeing a gay sex party in Brussels he had been attending, despite coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
Drainpipes have become the centre of internet jokes and memes in Hungary while the guttering at the apartment in Brussels has also been decorated with a makeshift plaque to commemorate the 30-year “political career of József Szájer”.
“For ten years, government parties have been destroying and scattering the country on the grounds of Christian morality and conservative values,” said Zoltán Varga of the opposition Democratic Coalition. “They steal, cheat, lie, and spend the stolen money on drugs, whores, orgies, luxury yachts, and some crazy luxury.”
Read the full article. Szájer, who wrote Hungary’s ban on same-sex marriage, reportedly bloodied his hands while clambering down the drainpipe before pleading for diplomatic immunity. According to the European press, members of his party knew of his sexuality despite his 37-year marriage to a female right wing judge who currently sits on Hungary’s Constitutional Court.
The drainpipe has become part of #Hungary’s political consciousness. MP Zoltan Varga of opposition DK, wielded one in parliament, telling Fidesz MPs: “God, country, family, right? Don’t mess around. You’re the govt of public money, cocaine & hookers. That’s your reality.” #Szajer pic.twitter.com/f5nmyOGMvT
