Of course it all has to do with Hungary and Poland standing against the European Union that is demanding those countries take their ‘fair share’ of migrants who have arrived illegally by the hundreds of thousands in recent years because France and Germany were spineless.
If the EU cuts off their funds, why don’t they just join the Brits and leave the EU?
Invasion of Europe news….
From the Express:
Eastern EU states such as Poland and Hungary would be punished under the proposals if they are deemed to have fallen short of the bloc’s ‘democratic values’.
Brussels’ move comes after growing calls from Germany and France, the EU’s two most influential members, to punish rebel member states.
Under the proposals, to be unveiled by the EU’s budget chief Guenther Oettinger this week, bureaucrats would freeze access to funding for EU projects.
An EU source said: “The proposal will include the temporary freezing of funds in order to motivate a change of behaviour among states.”
The measures are likely to further increase tensions between Brussels and the populist, right-wing governments in Warsaw and Budapest.
Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban has repeatedly clashed with the EU over the migrant crisis after refusing to sign up to refugee resettlement schemes.
And Poland has angered Brussels after introducing controversial judicial reforms judged anti-democratic by the European Commission.
