Orban defends Hungarian government at European Parliament


There was evidence in Strasbourg today that Brexit isn’t the EU’s only problem. A defiant Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, turned up in person at the European Parliament to defend his government from accusations it is undermining democracy.

He’s already accused the EU of over-reaching its powers and vowed not to allow more refugees as part of his Stop Brussels campaign. Hungary could potentially face losing its EU voting rights.
