The final result from the country’s historic referendum shows that more than nine in 10 voters rebelled against Jean-Claude Juncker’s EU Commission in a crushing blow to the whole euro project.
In total 92.3 per cent of people voted ‘no’ to migrant quotas, compared to just 1.4 per cent who said yes. A further six per cent of the ballots were spoiled in protest. … [T]he voter turnout at just 42 per cent, well below the 50 per cent threshold required to make the referendum valid in Hungarian law.
The reaction below is so typical of the globalists. They are a bunch of word-smithing propagandists, expert in managing perceptions but incompetent at reality.
But despite the overwhelming voice of the Hungarian people liberal politicians in Brussels immediately attempted to rubbish the referendum.
Gianni Pittella, the leader of the Socialists and Democrats group in the EU parliament, bizarrely described it as a ‘victory’ for Europe.
He said: “The whole of Europe has won. Populism and xenophobia have lost. Orban’s lies have come up against a brick wall. The wall of hatred, lies and razor wire Orban has built up to block refugees fleeing war is hopefully starting to fall down. The migration crisis needs a long term European answer based on solidarity and shared responsibility. We congratulate the majority of the Hungarian citizens who decided to stay at home and to truly act democratically by not playing Orban’s dirty games.”
93.2 to 1.4 is a big win, even if only 42% voted.
The globalists always triumph!
