Hungarian lawmaker resigns after caught fleeing a 'sex party' by climbing down a drainpipe

"Know. The career of a close ally of the hungarian prime minister viktor orban who was also an emmy p. has ended in a welter of scandal and suspicion as his actions threaten the public valleys of the right wing fidesz party lily by is a reporter at politico and she's here with more lily. It's with all the key elements. We have sex politics lawbreaking drugs and intrigue sitting comfortably. Tell us what happened It's quite an extraordinary story So basically over the weekend. A member of the european parliament. You'll jeff siad of the blue announced that he is resigning He is a member of hungary's ruling fetus party but It's important to understand that he's not just an ordinary member. he's one of the co founders of the party. He was there with prime minister. Viktor orban and others in nineteen eighty-eight when they started this political journey back then as young liberals he has been the prime minister's inner circle ever since and has played a key role in hungary and politics including the lead author of one of the hungarian government's main political projects. The two thousand eleven constitution. So he's really a an important figure especially in the intellectual circles of the ruling party so when he resigned that sparked a lot of questions. Initially people were wondering are there any divisions within the ruling party. What's going on. And then on tuesday details started leaking. I two local belgian press that that a member of the european parliament had attended a party on friday night in brussels. That was by police. Now it's important to Stand for those of our listeners. Who who are not familiar with bowel gyms rules that we have pretty strict covert related restrictions here about gatherings so belgian. Trust reported that there were about Twenty five naked men this particular party which at police had raided for violating the health related restrictions. And what prosecutors later said is that a passer-by had seen someone sleeping along the gutter This person It turns out Mr sire the a member of the european parliament was apprehended and then police found narcotics in his backpack after the leaks. Uche the politician. He admitted to having been present at the party but denied that the narcotics were his and this created a huge storm and hungarian politics given closely associated. He has personally with the prime minister. An element of his behavior do you think was most offensive to the party. I mean could he got away with it if it had. Just been about breaking lockdown rules. Well it's it's hard to tell but one thing to to note is that Ever since the late nineteen eighties when fetus was a young idealistic liberal political party on the were informal conversations within the party about mr sires Sexual orientation this is something. He has never discussed in public. And of course it's it's up to him to to to discuss But but within the party party members were chatting about this and at the time Wait what people say now is that they simply did not care They saw that. It's his private matter of what he does in his private life. And it's it didn't impact his initial political career. He was The group leader of the fidesz faction in the european in the are in the hungarian parliament. Initially in one thousand nine hundred ninety so he was quite an important figure within that party and so you know feed us because of its strategic trajectory. It's important to note you know it used to be a liberal party. It evolved over the years. It moved further and further to the right at today. It's a party that has been criticized for for what Lgbt activists call Anti gay policies but initially it did not have that kind of ideology back in the in the eighties and nineties. But i mean as you say. He had significant input into the very conservative constitution which holds family values it doesn't recognize. Lgbt rights he's married to a female judge judge as you say they've been whispers about his own sexuality so i wonder how this has affected the party. How it's affected feeders. In terms of just sheer hypocrisy. That's right so. I think that the opposition in hungary has really seized upon this issue Some have talks about What what one. Opposition politician called the moral bankruptcy Of the party. And i think that this will be an issue in the twenty. Twenty two election campaigner there will be elections then and it's already looking like a tough race even though Hunger in minister viktor. Orban is in quite powerful position and critics say an unfairly powerful position because of the covid crisis and because of economic problems in hungary like most other countries experiencing It's already said to be a tough campaign and having this kind of Scandal so close to to the real start of of of the race. Is i think putting more pressure on the party. And that's why. I think on wednesday or bounded something quite untested hinted for him He he gave a statement saying that. What cya did was unacceptable and indefensible and he said that This kind of behavior has no place in the values of the political family. And this was quite extraordinary. In hungarian context because i was with such a close friend and ally for over three decades And it's very very rare Side did quit the party. Officially on wednesday as well It's very rare for someone of that stature to to be publicly criticized by by the party to actually quit just quickly before we go. We know that he was a key figure. In brussels. In terms of of hungarian paulo within the eu. And i wonder if this will have an impact on the covert relief budget. Talks where hungary's vetoing the because the eu's insisting that the country conforms to various elements of the law so prime minister or bond was are speaking on hunger and state radio just about an hour ago and he repeated that hungary is came to its original hard line position on the eu budget and rule of law is a big conflict about that because a lot of eu countries in the european parliament one to length distribution of funding to respect for the rule of law There has been a lot of speculation about whether this is going to weaken or bounce position. a bit hard to tell right now We will see. I'm next week when

E.U. issues its first rule-of-law report, angering leaders of Hungary and Poland

"European Union has published today an audit of rule of law issues across its 27 member states, the first of what will be an annual review of Thie State of the blocks Democratic institutions as expected. There is criticism of judicial changes made by nationalist government's in Poland and Hungary in recent years, but concerns We're also raised about corruption in six countries, including Bulgaria. On DH Malta On Tuesday, The Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban called for the report's author, The You commissioner for values very Jehovah to be sacked All Europe correspondent Kevin Connolly joins us now from Brussels and Kevin just on hungry. How badly does the country come out of this report? There's nothing that will be unfamiliar to the Hungarian government in the charges, but they are not familiar concerns about the limitations of the freedom of the media and determination by the Hungarian government has seen from Brussels. To exercise undue influence of judicial process so that in effect the court system, the legal system in Hungary becomes less free. So it's not the freshness Of the charges, which will annoy Viktor Orban, the Hungarian leader. It is the fact that as you would have expected, they are front and center in the presentation of this case on the really fear in Hungary and in Poland, too. To a slightly lesser extent is the underlying threat, which is still present in this document, which is gaining currency and Brussels as an idea that if you really want to do something about this is the European Union. You have to link the spending of you funds from Brussels with adherence to basic rules about the rule of law, the freedom of the justice system on the freedom of the press. That's what really angers Viktor Orban on DH angers the Polish government, too. That's what they will always come out on the attack. That's why, of course, he's asking for the sacking or via your over the vice president, the European Commission. He certainly won't get that. But he wants to make this for his own domestic political audience about it about Hungary being under attack, rather than hungry, being criticized for falling short of international standards. How likely are other, You country's Tio follow up on on that threat. I think at some point, that idea is gonna have to work its way onto the political agenda. Because at some point I think the European Commission is going to be forced to conclude that persuasion simply doesn't work in these kind of cases. Viktor Orban Thie nationalist government in Poland, They're both going to pursue the same argument. That the European Commission doesn't understand what it's like to emerge from decades of Communist domination that certain measures are necessary that Poland and Hungary are not France and Belgium and the things of different so as long as The countries who are accused pushback in those terms. I think eventually the European Commission will be forced to acknowledge that it's going to have to use any financial levers at its disposal. It won't be quick because nothing involving the European Commission of the European Union is quick. But I think it's some point. It's inevitable on just briefly. The other countries mentioned I included Bulgaria immortal one of the concerns there is that about corruption. It's about both corruption and about shortcomings in the judicial process. In this special mention, I suppose for Bulgaria, Croatia and Slovakia who make both this and here's the takeaway from this. This is a 27 member institution. About a quarter of the member states, mainly former Communist states. About a quarter off them come in for some kind of criticism, so a bracing dose of freshness.

"At dawn on October fifth. Two Thousand Ten Deva Chair mayor to all the Tomas was waiting through a caustic swamp of heavy metals. He fervently hoped his boots and protective coveralls would protect him from the cadmium cobalt and lead swirling in the mud around him. An acrid smell filled his nose as he looked out over his little town. Every building fence and tree left standing had an eerie waist. High Line of rust colored residue it appeared as though the town had been painted carefully by a brush overnight in a misguided prank. Tomas was exhausted. He had been up through the night and he'd been frantically working since. The flood rushed over the town at noon the day before now. Small mountains of red rebels stood everywhere. The leftovers of the crumbled buildings that had toppled in the wave of toxic sludge. Deva chair no longer resembled the sleepy town where Tomas had spent his whole life. That looked like it had been bombed most of Devon chair surviving residents had been evacuated to nearby villages where shelters had been set up in churches and auditoriums rows of beds and tables of packed sandwiches. Were put out for the displaced victims but the toxic flow soon reached those surrounding villages as well. The sludge seeped into small creeks that fed into the larger tributaries of the Danube River. The recent rain had softened the ground and increase the permeability of the soil which only helped to quicken the spread of pollutants. Toxic plume had travelled nearly fifteen miles by October fifth. Reaching at least six other towns the region was in dire. Need of immediate help. Tomasa cell phone rang incessantly. As he slowly tramped through the sludge he was discussing how to find shelters for displaced residents. And keep the evacuees safe. He spoke with a never ending line of different government. Officials policemen and workers to coordinate the incoming help but it was calls from the press. Were the most intrusive. They wanted quotes. They wanted to know how disaster happened. Reporters came to the village. Protective outfits and masks poised and ready with cameras and microphones in addition to the reporters over five. Hundred policemen and soldiers arrived to organize infrastructure among the madness and ruin they were directing traffic and continuing to clean roads and walkways and everyone wore head to toe protective gear. The rescuers looked like aliens or spacemen. New arrivals to an unknown toxic as the clean-up began in earnest. The Hungarian government directed the temporary shutdown of Mall Zero. The company responsible for the spill workers from the aluminum plant were dispatched to gather sludge from the streets of Deva Chair and ship it back to the headquarters in Ocu- about twelve miles away rusty alkaline water splashed as industrial vacuums sucked up. Sludge gathered in homes and offices workers from the company hosed down streets and alleyways to wash away the heavy metals to foot deep puddles of diluted toxic water or then suctioned from between trees and the dips of Roadways. Huge bulldozers gathered building wreckage and scooped up poisoned swaths of the surrounding forest floor. But no amount of cleaning could erase the red stains or fully removed. The powdery toxic dust that caked on wherever the waste dried the demolished homes. Were haunting site. Living Room couches were sopping wet with red mud. Never to be sat on again. Tv's were toppled over poison melted through plastic frames and burned away family pictures. Broken walls revealed inundated bathrooms with tubs sinks filled with sludge amidst piles of d'etre 'tis dolls and basketball's floated along in. What used to be children's toy rooms? Refrigerators with food still inside removed and put in massive garbage crate in the mid day on October. Fifth government workers arrived with giant dump trucks and drove down unchartered paths and back roads. They poured Klay into the tributaries of the Danube River. Officials claimed at the time that they would be able to neutralize toxins and minimize contamination with the clay. As Claes naturally absorbent. It could lower the Ph of the water by soaking in the poisons but the mud was wildly toxic yielding a Ph of thirteen that level of alkalinity could burn through skin and muscle tissue in a matter of minutes. A Ph of thirteen is similar to bleach oven cleaner. Neither of which is a substance. A person would want to touch jest war inhale throughout the afternoon of the fifth the sludge spread through rivers and woodlands around Deva Chair and Colon Tar just a day before these bodies of water had been lively clean and filled with wildlife water sources. That had been fresh enough to drink turned caustic overnight red sludge clogged the gills of fish. Their bodies floating to the surface birds who had eaten poison plants and dying aquatic. Animals lay bloated. At the river's edge. Small drowned rodents looked like clay figurines. The sheer number of dead creatures alarmed. The workers gathered the nauseous carcasses with gloved hands. They lifted the limp bodies of squirrels and raccoons that dripped with sludge into bins trash cans filled to the brim with these. Little corpses were incinerated by the dozen. The forest was strangely silent. Save for the sounds of the heavy machinery scooping and sectioning the toxic waste from the environment however the cleaning efforts to stop the flow of caustic sludge rivers and soil. Were coming up short. The emergency responders had underestimated the amount of toxic liquid. There was to clean up. This was due to a corporate lie in their own. Disaster plan malls accounted for only a fraction of the amount of toxic sludge. They had generated. They had been using the same waste pond to dump aluminum biproduct. Since the nineteen sixties in addition to the glut of toxic waste excess rainwater collected in the waste. Reservoir at the plant mixed with the aluminum. Byproduct years of rain created a much more fluid and powerful force than expected when the dam failed. The vast amount of rain water in the waste pond diluted the toxic sludge when the wall deteriorated burst the sludge spread in a more fluid form. It flowed markedly faster than a more solid substance the volume multiplied to over one hundred eighty five million gallons of destructive liquid that polluted roughly two thousand acres of land now the excess liquid pooling around the villages made the cleanup process much more harrowing as it dried and hardened the evacuated residents would not be able to return as soon as they had hoped. Once the sludge had absorbed the cleanup would take much longer than anticipated by October. Sixth and seventh. Some of these frightening facts trickled into the news and became public knowledge. The shock of what had happened was turning into anger. Deep Sadness and fear for the future residents listened to the news and read articles online has details about the true scope of the disaster. Were beginning to come to light. They heard the wide swath of land affected by the flood and realized the disaster was much greater than what they had seen Endeavour Chair. They saw pictures of fish floating belly up. In the midst of a- bling burping globs Greenpeace reported the danger of arsenic chromium and excessive mercury in the waters around Deva Chair. Arsenic levels in the wells of Colon Tar were twenty five times higher than the legal limit for drinking water and double the anticipated levels from the waste reservoir. It was difficult for residents to comprehend the level of poison now surrounding them many townspeople with only partially damaged. Homes remained endeavour chair refusing to leave these residents watched out their windows as blurry. Red Clouds filled the air. They tried to stay calm. The danger was only increasing. A new problem arose says the toxic mud began to dry. The sludge became a cancerous dust. It was not safe to breathe in but it was everywhere. Caught in the breeze and stirred up by the machines masks were required to be outside. In some cases people even wore them indoors as a dust made its way through air vents and under doors and on the morning of October Seventh. The wind started to pick up coming up.

'Viral: Anti-Semitism in Four Mutations': A Close-Up on Hatred

"In an unhealthy society? That has problems. They say who did this to us? And the Jews are always candidate. That's columnist George will who's featured in a new documentary on anti-semitism out in theaters across the country on Friday with us in the studio to discuss that film is its creator. Andrew Goldberg in two thousand nine. Andrew focused his lens on the resurgence of Anti Jewish hatred around the world and in mainstream media but after the two thousand sixteen election and the CHARLOTTESVILLE rally where protesters proclaimed the Jews will not replace us. Goldberg felt compelled to return to the topic for an even deeper exploration in viral for mutations of anti-semitism Goldberg travels through four countries. The United States Great Britain France and Hungary to speak firsthand with victims witnesses anti-semites an high profile figures including bill. Clinton Tony Blair Deborah Lipstadt and AJC Europe director. Simone Rodin Benkin in Pittsburgh. He examined the far right ideas that led to the attack on the tree of life synagogue in Hungary he looks at the Anti Immigration. Anti George Soros anti-jewish propaganda promoted by the government and in the UK. He explores the pain caused by the Anti Zionist messages from the UK's Labor Party the film also explores the repeated violence against Jews in France carried out by Islamists Andrew. Welcome glad to be here. Thank you so thank you for making this documentary and I'm curious. Can you kind of take our audience back to the original conception of it and how it evolved over time since I believe some events actually transpired in the making of the documentary will shortly after the election? We noticed there was sort of an uptick in anti Semitic incidents around the country. There were series a bomb threats which we know turned out to be bogus but those caught. Everyone's attention and suddenly everyone was noticing things and shortly after that a lot of tombstones were desecrated several different cemeteries and then the sort of global eyeballs started to notice these things talk about them more in the press and online and we immediately thought we should make a film about antisemitism and we didn't know what it would look like or what it would be. I think our initial thoughts were that would be about the United States but as we did more and more research and we knew this was a global issue. We knew it was happening in other countries. But as you unpack these things you realize that. There's an urgency to a lot of these stories and so we decided to really expanded and to look at four different situations. Those would be the far right in the United States. The far left in England in Hungary where the prime minister has launched a massive PR campaign against a Jewish philanthropist and in France where Islamist have been killing Jews in various terror attacks and other violent attacks against Jews to the tune of what unofficial numbers seemed to be more than three thousand a year. Now you've been making documentaries and doing journalism for twenty years As have I and I was a religion reporter for fifteen years in Chicago and I will tell you when I came here. I was stunned by just how much people hate. Jews. And I'm curious you I. I mentioned this to a former colleague at the Tribune recently and his response. He's in his eighties. He said we'll of course you grew up at a different time You know it's no surprise to me but yeah of course you didn't realize I'm just curious if this was a real shock to your system as you were doing the reporting the idea that Jews are hated was never foreign to me. I mean keep in mind. I'm fifty one and so I grew up where the Holocaust was not that far off. I mean I was raised in the seventies so I guess it was still thirty years old but it was not as it is now sixty plus years old where the next generation of people don't even know it was there Growing UP IN CHICAGO BEING JEWISH WAS It was not something to be celebrated at least among my friends and among my peers. I was made fun of for it a few times. It wasn't I didn't grow up in the midst of it but the Holocaust was connected to us in a way that it was very very real and so for that reason I understood that Jews were absolutely despised and I started making films in my first film that had anything to do with Jewish subjects was around two thousand and two or so and you know it was about Eastern European Jewish life before the war. So we're talking about you. Know all black and white footage of shuttles of Warsaw of what we might call the Yiddish world and that whole world is utterly destroyed in Eastern Europe and in Europe and in Russia and that made it pretty easy to see and in doing that film I started to learn about it. I automate fillmore at antisemitism in the media in the Middle East at one point and you realize that it is it is widespread. There's Anti Semitism where there are Jews. There's antisemitism where there are not Jews. There's Anti Semitism among people who are friends with Jews so my awareness of this has grown so in other words you entered into this project knowing there was a history of this but you had never seen it kind of in the current context as well. I had not seen it the way I see it now. I when I made a film in two thousand seven on antisemitism in the in the in the arab-islamic world per particularly North Africa and the Middle East I didn't focus that much on Europe and the US at the time antisemitism in the US was a very minor issue compared to what it is now. I don't want to say it was minor because there were plenty of people experiencing antisemitism but we didn't have it to the magnitude and we didn't have the Internet the way we do now but I knew that it was alive and well in the Middle East and that was surprising to see just how deep it is just how woven into the fabric of conversation and media it is. I was interviewing some kids in Egypt on the street and I said to them what are Jews they said User Satan Jews are evil. Juice should die. I said what if a Jewish kid was walking right here across the street and got hit by a car. They said we would call an ambulance. These two ideas existed right next to each other. And that's what's so interesting. One is in the abstract one is in the day to day Would you say that abstract versus day day is what's also infecting Western Europe United States? This wave of anti-semitism that we're seeing or is it. Is it very different? I think they crossover so for example. In Hungary there's virtually no violence against Jews In Hungary a survey showed that forty percent. Forty two percent of Hungarians held at least one or more anti Semitic views. Does that mean that? The people by larger anti-semites probably not but it means that the numbers are higher. Those numbers were higher than they were anywhere else in Europe or give or take a country. How many countries are there in Europe? A lot right so but there's no violence against Jews physical violence. That's what I mean physical violence against Jews but those lines do tend to cross over at points and so the fear is that it can translate these nationalist movement so in Hungary just to give some context the government has launched a huge campaign against George. Soros it's on Mute right now. It's not running right now but it ran not too long ago during the European Union elections. It came back up again. I asked one of the spokespeople of Hungary will come back and he told me that it would come back in a very consistent way so the whole idea that the Hungarian government has put forth. Is that this Jewish billionaire. George Soros is out to flood the nation with Muslim immigrants and since Muslim immigrants in the eyes of the Hungarian government are bad. You the Hungarian citizen the White Christian Hungarian citizen are in danger. And you're in danger because of a Jew. So here's these people are all worked up about a Jew who actually isn't doing anything like this but yet at the same time they're not vandalizing. All the Jewish shops are not beating Jews. And what have you? Although there's I've heard some rumblings that a little of that has happened so we'll have to see but I'm no expert on the data right. Well I think that's the argument. I mean argument. Deborah Lipstadt makes in the film. For example it starts with words it starts with comments and then does eventually escalate. That's the danger of not addressing it nipping in the bud. When you see. I think that's here right so I think that in America we've seen rage on the Internet translate into violence than I think you know the hatred in Hungary is really a government media campaign which took place on TV on the radio on the Internet. But also on billboards outside it was like an all encompassing life. You would drive down the street and you'd be bombarded with it here This antisemitism isn't billboards. I mean there's we'd see them occasionally but it's all on the Internet and people get the Internet sort of like you and your computer. You Lock yourself in this little space and then you start to get worked up and you start to hate and so we see that. Not all but many of these. Violent attacks in the United States are people who sort of incubated these ideas on the Internet. You raise a good point billboards in Hungary that was the been the vehicle of communication there for that. Soros campaign but I'm curious what about social media. What about the comments in violence on social media is it just as rampant in places like Hungary as it is here we'll so the makeup and the nature of the of the campaign in Hungary? We didn't break down so I don't know what percentage of it certainly on social media and not only was it on social media is a place where people can share about it right so in addition to whatever the government put on social media because the government had all these different forms they had radio they had. Tv They billboards aid magazines. It's social media mailings mailing mailing which is in the film How much of their media mix was the Internet? I don't know but if you're a person with anti Semitic views you can't do anything with billboard but some people did right hateful messages on billboards with magic markers in pain. They actually vandalize them. But by and large the billboards are you don't interact with them in the billboard. Don't post against back and forth a TV commercial. You don't respond to that. The Internet is where everybody took their hatred in their dislike of George Soros and they brought it to the Internet. And I think that's a place where you would see a lot more of this. Anti Jewish rhetoric the Internet is where it becomes the People's action not the government right. You have obsession in the film that talks about the brief history of blaming Jews. And you talk about the films that you've done in the past and the history of this but one critique of the film that I've read is that doesn't include enough historical context now I hear this critique all the time as a journalist you only have so much space or time right to address the whole of a situation but I'm curious what your thoughts are on whether to include more history or trajectory. The history of antisemitism is extremely complex. It grows out of misinterpretations if that's a word of people misinterpreted biblical scripture. It's changed and it's more throughout the centuries throughout Europe. If you WANNA talk about how it's been a part of the story of Christianity knew very thorny and complicated history which takes a long time to get in and out of now take that for a minute and think about. We have limited shelf space in our movie. I always say to people in movies not a casserole but take that from it in a notice that in the film we have that history. We have extensive history of the civil rights movement in the United States with history of the entire Orban's campaign and where that came from in Hungary in Oregon was we talk all about a migration and the history of colonialism in France as to give the backbone of that in England we talk about the Labor Party going all the way back to two thousand and eight. What we don't do is this deep analysis of Christian history but my response is also this. If I make a film about racism in about how African Americans are being shot in the street by police. Do I need to tell you? The history of why blacks are disliked by racists in this country. If I talk about misogyny do I need to tell you? The history of why people are misogynists to me and the same goes for LGBTQ. Americans no one's asking why. Why do I need to get into the fact of why Trans People are being murdered? Right now are being beaten up. I don't need to analyze that. Well that too comes from the Bible. Right hatred of homophobia grows right out of scripture. But I don't need to give that analysis so it's a it. We talk about double standards and antisemitism and I don't want to say this is anti Semitism but it's almost a reflex that people feel like anything has to do with Jews. With antisemitism with Israel has to be held to some type of second order of scrutiny and I found that a little bit frustrating. There've been some debates on college campuses about whether or not Jewish students who are pro. Israel can join feminist marches. Lgbtq right marches. You other causes. They feel excluded from those causes because of their Zionist positions and so. That's where intersection. -ality has come up a lot in conversations here is how do you address that exclusion? Even though it's very different causes communities have gotten together and there has not been room for the Jewish issue of antisemitism has four complicated reasons not been welcome into that crew. Because many in this left is idea. Do not like how they don't like what's going on with the Arab Israeli conflict let's not even parse the Israeli conflict. Unfortunate part of this.

This is what the chief of stuff of the Hungarian prime minister gag had to say about it. Ceiling company, we all talking about Hungarians and Hungary. We don't see them as migrants we accept them because of their Hungarian ancestry, every Hungarian can return home. And we know that in Venezuela is a huge Hungarian community, Stefan.

I have to say won't them people who are cooperating with the Nazi regime day fled, Hungary, and they left for countries such as Venezuela now off to debt we had, of course, also denied nine hundred fifty six revolution in Hungary against Soviet domination. And during that time also at least hundreds of people ended up in Venezuela. Now, meanwhile, that community has grown to a few thousand and that is why Don Gary and government says we have to support him. So. Finally, stefan. Why the secrecy the secrecy is really I think because the Hungarian government is realizing that this is totally against its own anti migration rhetoric. Meanwhile, and spokesman has said that we were not really so secrets about it. Because we already said last year that would bring some ethnic Hungarian families here bought critical. Journalists have find out that is really a huge operation. And it was never made clear by the government. The extent of which we are facing now

This is basically put together a piece of legislation where lawyers can argue, but look, I mean, every bit in piece of this particular say, electoral is taking this participation from the German system.

Exactly what we have in a better system so you can bring in.

"And yesterday in the discussion, he also emphasized that that the parliamentary vote against the Hungarian government. And I would like to emphasize this is a vote against a government as Frans Timmermans. Commissioner of the of the of the European Union emphasizes. It's not a as the Hungarian government tries to highlight this is against Hungarian people or Hungary at large. This is against a government which does not want to comply with those values and and want to build up an illiberal state atom I'm for for all this is use as is. Alama voting is on. The opposition has has welcomed. It does say something about how power shifting in Europe that Member States. The European Union can be accused of and pretty be lodged the agreed guilty of breaking all manner of the EU expected rules on tomography and the protection of freedom of speech and freedom of minorities. And that aside from that vote, actually nothing's really going to happen as a consequence. Yeah. Yeah, that's always been one of the main problems with the EU. The leverage that it had was over countries before they joined and all these countries were on that that's behavior before they go in. And then they knew they were fully aware of how the EU were once they were in on this very, really, very little. You can do. I mean, obstacle seven's long been referred to as the nuclear option. As you know, as gobble says is, this hasn't happened just last the blue this week. This is a process that's been going on for a long time, but there's really, no, there's no mechanisms goes all Member States after green with this, and you only need one to votes against it. And I think Hungary's got more than one. I don't know. Even Britain has been sort of a bit. I'm billions on this. So it's it's, you know, there's there's really no means of of controlling member-states once they're in. So the solution to hunger is political problem lies in hungry. Well, this is, I mean, they are the point is. Is that there's an issue here between sobering tea and and super national policies. I mean, Victor, all ban people may love him or they may hate him, but he's won three elections in a row. He said, very clearly what he's going to do. He said that we will clamp down on my Gration organized on NGOs, aiding organizations, we will seal the border. We will take a tough line on my Gration and then he wanted to election and it was a free election, and that's what he did. So the is that the just doesn't like democratically elected politicians policies. Well, that's that's what people in the Hungarian government and feed us would say it's been more complicated because there's too, you know there's several things going on here. The issues the have been raised in, for example, the Sargentini report about the treatment of the growing with minority. But I mean, you can look at the treatment of the right minority in almost any EU countries. It's far west in Romania, or if you look at how ROY Moore. People are treated in Greece. I mean, this this one hung Garin specialities as institutionalized discrimination and high levels of poverty against the Roma. So you know why?
