As previously reported, Democratic Coalition Chair Ferenc Gyurcsány wrote on his Facebook page that he had to return from vacationing in Sardinia with his wife when he contracted a bout of appendicitis, which had to be operated on.

Pro-government news site Origo, however, found this explanation impossible as there are no direct flights on EasyJet airlines between Budapest and Sardinia, stating that it was a “big question how Ferenc Gyurcsány could have returned home” on EasyJet.

Gyurcány himself solved the mystery on his Facebook page by posting his boarding card, which showed that he had transferred through Basel, Switzerland.

The former Socialist Prime Minister also “thanked” his “sweet noodle fairies” for looking out for him and caring for his welfare. [HVG]
