Even you can see the difference between the voters of Hungary democratically electing a Prime Minister to keep out illegal immigrants and the undemocratic EU daring to punish a nation for acing democratically.
None of this has anything to do with democracy either within Hungary or the EU.
The Hungarians have made a set of agreements which they are not honouring, in fact they are blatently disregarding them - the EU is very slowly and pretty gently reminding them that binding agreements have to be honoured or there will ultimately be consequences.
If Orban doesn't like it, then let him do a Hungarian Brexit (whatever that is Hunexit??) but of course he's also a total hypocrite who happily decries the EU at every opportunity whilst simultaneously taking all the benefits (both cash and non-cash) that the EU provides.
Or to put it simply for you to understand, if you join a club you have to abide by the rules that you signed up to.
Except that their is no treaty signed between the nations of the EU that says those nations must accept illegal migrants into their countries. Now almost two million migrants have flooded into the EU since Merkal signalled that anyone could come and since then, under pressure from Germany, the EU has tried to get member states to each accept a proportion of them. The EU wants the UK to take far more than we have already and we are resisting the EU's challenges. In Hungary's case the Hungarian government has an electoral mandate to not accept any migrants.
So whose policy trumps whom? The EU or the sovereign government? The answer is clear - and should be noted by all those who claim that we are a sovereign nation and can make our own laws. The EU considers its rules, directives and laws to be superior to those of the nation state, and if you don't agree then the EU will punish you until such time as you do agree.
A good example of why we need to get out of this bullying, undemocratic organisation as soon as possible. And then do everything we can to wreck it.
