The Budapest Wall


Berlin Wall

So one morning Hungary’s all time saviour, the undisputable, great president-prime-minister, Orbán Viktor, decided that a fence on the Serbian-Hungarian border would solve everyone’s problems.
Because he was asked before his morning sausage & eggs, he presumably was too hungry and grumpy to actually listen to this complex problem of mass-immigration and refugees.

Is it a big deal?
Yes, everything bigger than a toast landing on its buttered side is a big deal. You, dear reader, have to consider the fact that Hungary is a homogenous society. Having to deal with outsiders is a big deal, especially for an incompetent government.

Does the EU help?
Yes, the EU has offered a very simple solution: we deal with refugees and we get money for it. Personally, I can’t understand why our brilliant government had to create such a big fuss about some people transiting through Hungary.

Did you think people would stay here? At best they might speak English or German, or nothing. Either way, a western European nation is a far better choice than tiny Hungary.

The Solution
As always, I can offer a perfect solution: let them come. The tree-trunk is hard and strong, but can be broken by the storm; the grass is weak, but will bend with the wind…
Being a stubborn prime minister of Hungary, building fences, and finding quick and easy “solutions” offers way more disadvantages than advantages.
