Racist or just brutal realism? Hungary’s been condemned for building a new Iron Curtain to keep out migrants. But its PM says he’s done it to avoid multicultural Britain’s mistakes… and his popularity is soaring

From the back garden of Istvan Molnar’s home, you can see Hungary’s newly erected ‘Iron Curtain’ in the distance.

The razor-wire fence has become a defining symbol of the migrant crisis. The barricade — 4m high and constructed in six weeks on the back of prison labour — runs the length of the country’s 110-mile border with Serbia.

The Berlin Wall, by comparison, was 96 miles long. This hinterland between Hungary and the Balkans was once the main entry point to the European Union for the diaspora pouring out of the Middle East.

    Maybe we can borrow him to come over here and show how to build a fence on the southern border of the US. And maybe if that doesn’t get done he can help put a proper fence on the southern Canadian border when the US is overrun completely.

      Good fences make good neighbours.

        Why yes they do.

      Building a fence encourages apartheid, which is racist, hateful & ignorant.

        Speaking of hateful and ignorant. Unless this is a sarcastic comment on your part.
        How would you feel if I came over to your house let myself in raided your refrigerator and helped myself to your belongings and your family? Seriously this is what is happening with the open borders.

        • Samuel

          It is sarcasm.

          • Blacksmith

            Then please accept my apology.

  • The PC police can’t shut him up.

    Thank God there is some sane person left in the West to sound the alarm bells.

    Leftist Western European elites need to be tried for treason. It they are found guilty they should be sent to some Islamic hell hole.
