As EU leaders convened in Brussels, Hungarian leader Viktor Orban angrily lashed out at Angela Merkel because of her lax immigration policies that have created such a crisis in her country. Orban warned that the Muslim migrant crime problem in Germany would spill over into neighbouring countries:
The Germans and other countries who made the mistake of letting these people into the EU are now trying to share them out, so every country also inherits their problem.”
Even Merkel finally admitted to the problem with Muslim migrants, a problem that she caused, when she finally woke up to the personal cost to her politically. It’s a shame that while thousands of German citizens were being attacked and molested, she was still saying to Germans “we can do this.”
Back in July, Orban stirred controversy when he “described the arrival of asylum seekers in Europe as ‘a poison’, saying his country did not want or need ‘a single migrant.'”
Meanwhile, Sweden, a country battered by Muslim migrant crime and no-go zones, has been “backing Italy’s demands Brussels cut funds to states who do not take their fair share of asylum-seekers.”
“‘We won’t pay for YOUR error’ Fuming Orban shatters EU unity with migrant attack on Merkel,” by Nick Guyteridge and Agnes Kegl, Express, December 15, 2016:
The hard-line prime minister accused Germany of trying to pass the buck for its “mistake” letting in so many people by sending them to other countries under an EU quota scheme.
He launched into a vicious tirade as he arrived in Brussels for a meeting of the EU Council this morning, vowing once again that Hungary will not accept the controversial policy.
The get together of the 28 European heads of Government is expected to be dominated by the humanitarian crisis in Aleppo and the possibility of further sanctions against Russia.
But Mr Orban was more keen to talk about the issue of migration, claiming that the majority of arrivals in Europe are “economic migrants” and not genuine refugees.
He blasted: “We are still fighting over the mandatory migrant quotas. The Hungarians don’t want what the Germans, or to be precise, Angela Merkel demands.
“The Germans and other countries who made the mistake of letting these people into the EU are now trying to share them out, so every country also inherits their problem. Hungary doesn’t like this approach.”
Mr Orban also set himself on the warpath with eurocrats by vowing to do everything in his power to block the scheme, which 98 per cent of Hungarians who voted rejected in a national referendum earlier this year…..
The leader of the tiny Baltic [sic] state expressed sympathy for Theresa May’s attempts to negotiate a sensible deal with Brussels, and said her country would use its influence to press for constructive talks.
Several, including Greece’s Alexis Tsipras and Belgium’s Charles Michel, answered questions on the day’s other agenda items but conspiciously [sic] fled the cameras when the thorny subject of Britain was raised.
And others stuck rigidly to the European Union’s official policy that there can be “no negotiation without notification”, reiterating their calls for Mrs May to trigger Article 50 as soon as possible.
Finnish PM Juha Sipla would only say: “We will start in the end of March that’s for sure.”
And Luxembourg’s Xavier Bettel tetchily answered: “I think that we are still waiting for Article 50 to be triggered by the British government. This has to happen for us to start the negotiations. We will not negotiate before. These are the conditions that must be respected.”
Outgoing EU Parliament chief Martin Schulz told reporters: “I hope that the Article 50 will be triggered as soon as possible, as the earlier the easier it is for me to answer your questions.”
And EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini instantly shut down all questions on the subject, sighing: “That’s not foreign policy yet.”
Leaders of the 28 EU member states will discuss a variety of issues at today’s meeting including the situation in Syria and the possibility of further sanctions against Russia, the ongoing response to the migrant crisis and the drive to create a European army.
