Hungarian Regional Development Minister Tibor Navracsics is due to travel to Brussels next week to discuss EU funds. He told atv.hu that the Orbán cabinet has no intention of leaving the European Union.
In response to a journalist’s question, the minister said that the Hungarian government has formally notified the Commission of its request for the share of the EU’s recovery billions.
As we reported, Johannes Hahn, European Commissioner for Budget, recently met Prime Minister Viktor Orbán in Budapest. During the meeting, the possibility of the Commission cutting off funds did not arise, Mr Navracsics said.
Atv.hu asked the Regional Development Minister if Hungary ever plans to leave the European Union.
“No, of course not,”
Mr Navracsics replied. “Brexit is proof that it is no longer possible to leave the EU in a good way,” he stressed.
Does Navracsics really mean that Hungary could have left the EU “in a good way” at some earlier time? Of course not because it would have been even worse at an early stage because Hungary has been one of the biggest per capita recipients of EU aid since it joined. What a slippery statement Navracsics makes by saying in effect “sorry Hungarians we were not trapped before but we are now trapped in the EU.” Tell us why. There are too many benefits to membership. Navracsics and the Orban government want to take EU money and benefits without even publicly admitting to Hungarians what benefits they get. From the other side of their mouths they spew venom at the EU on a constant basis. People you ever encounter who behave like that on a personal basis you avoid at all costs as narcissistic sociopaths.
Larry Concur – excellent comment.
Hope it TURNS the Lights on of MILLIONS of Hungarians – and THEY start to ACT to save this country.
Victor Orban – has PLUNGED this country into a Nadir situation with the European Union.
Orban thought for numbers of the 13 years he has been Prime Minister of Hungary he could ride “Rough Shot” over the European Union.
Orban did WRONGFULLY for to long a period in time over 13 years possible – inclusive of his FIRST go or time as Prime Minister of Hungary – along with his Oligarchy “Mob” – did have MASSIVE wins – that LINED there personal POCKETS.
Truth & Justice and RIGHTFULLNESS of Legal Rulings – by the Courts of Justice of the European Union – that were handed down – through the corruption and lies – the Falsification of reasons submitted by Hungary, signed of by Victor Orban, in the lodgement process for funding by Hungary from the European Union funding.
Hungary we PAY the present position we are IN – with the European Union, that is on VERY shaky ground.
WE could leave the European Union – LAUGHABLE.
We could get EXPELLED from the European Union – PROBABITY.
Whats Orban – plans for HUNGARY – with NO membership of the European Union ???
Be assured of one FACT if that was the case -Hungary would not be a Democracy but ruled by a Dictatorship under Communism.
