From porn performer to far-right militia madame

Hungarian elebrity portal velvet.hu posted an article over the weekend in which it revealed that one member of the infamous far-right militia Magyar Gárda has an interesting past. More specifically, one of its members is none other than Nikki Miller, also known as Candy…

The picture which accompanied this article was definitely ‘not safe for work’. So instead I’ve put up a photograph of Admiral Horthy. It was under Horthy’s leadership in the 1920s that Hungary became the first post World War I nationalist dictatorship in Europe, setting the scene for all kinds of ensuing unpleasantness. This is the style of politics favoured by Jobbik, the right wing nutters who last weekend took around 15% of the popular vote, in the first round of general elections. Their foot soldiers are the Magyar Gárda, who really have it in for Roma (gypsies) and Jews, even as they try to convince observers that they’re as harmless as overgrown cub scouts.

Anyway, I thought if anything would encapsulate how crazy the socio-political scene can be in Hungary, home to not only several hundred thousand unrepentant xenophobes, but also the porn capital of Europe, it would be this article. Incidentally, the website is ‘Sexiside’, the shamelessly slutty sister website of the generally very excellent Pestiside.

    About Me

    I have never worked as a secret agent, but I did play one on TV: KGB spy Sergei Kukushkin in mini series The Company. More recently I played a debauched aristocrat in a tasty short film called Last Night in Buenos Aires. I was also the voice of the monster Buffalord in the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, believe it or not. In 'real life' I am a Travel Writer, Scriptwriter, After-Dinner Speaker, Entrepreneur and man-about-many-towns who has written and produced television for Fox Networks UK, the UK Sci-Fi Channel and New Zealand animation facility The Funny Farm. I have also edited or contributed to numerous guidebooks, to cities like Buenos Aires, Florence and London - as well as dear old Budapest of course. Between December and February I was Guest Editor at Time Out Beirut. I have also been fortunate enough to write about travel (and whatever else moves me) for True/Slant as 'The Jet-Set Hobo.' Well, it seemed a fun way to sum up what might laughingly be referred to as my lifestyle, and the label has stuck. There are worse appellations, don't you think?

    What I'm Up To

    The Wildcats of Piran

    pirancatIt may seem an odd occupation for a globe-trotting, nightlife loving bachelor, but over the last few months, I’ve been writing a children’s book called The wild cats of Piran. It’s about a colony of feral cats who live in a small medieval town on the Adriatic sea. The book is intended to appeal to very bright 9 year olds and up. The sort of thing a bookish, cat loving adult could enjoy whipping through in a long afternoon sitting in a snug armchair by an open fire. A great believer in letting the work speak for itself, if you’re at all interested, I suggest you contact the author directly, here and I’ll send you the first few chapters as an attachment. Thank you for listening.
