Luxembourg’s interior minister refers to one part of Europe against mass migration as uncivilized.
Obviously, Luxembourg’s foreign minister, Jean Asselborn, has not visited France’s great “civilization” of Calais.
– Hungary’s prime minister, Viktor Orban, said that the European Union has made “grave mistakes” in the past five years regarding immigration and the economy.
The European Commission needs to allow a council of EU interior ministers to decide migration issues, comparing their role to the so-called Eurogroup, the finance ministers of the countries using the euro currency, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said at a Hungarian cultural festival in the Romanian town of Baile Tusnad.
– Orban also took exception to what he described as the “political activism” of the European Commission.
“The commission … needs to behave as the guard of the EU agreements and abandon political activism,” Orban said. “It is not a political body, it should not have a program and it should not carry out political attacks on members states.”
* Orban makes a good point regarding the EU Interior Ministers, especially the appeal of getting Matteo Salvini more involved. However, the same problem will resurface, namely the interior ministers of both France and Germany will block any meaningful steps to stop mass migration.
Or the thought of Luxembourg’s foreign minister, Jean Asselborn, who warned that member states needed to show solidarity or the bloc could “break apart.”
“We’re arguing from [the perspective of] two different continents,” he told DW. “Firstly, from a civilized Europe, which France, Germany and others are effectively trying to create. And secondly, another Europe — a humane no-man’s-land. And that’s extremely bad.”
** Oh, the “civilized” Europe is that of Germany, France and Benelux?
Many in Central Europe who enjoy safe and clean streets would be very surprised at this statement, given the No-Go-Zones of Paris, Berlin and Brussels….or the type of “civilization” Visegrad lorry drivers encounter in Calais.
