Expel Hungary from EU for hostility to refugees, says Luxembourg

Luxembourg’s foreign minister has called for Hungary to be thrown out of the European Union over its increasingly hostile approach to refugees, as campaigners accuse Viktor Orbán’s hardline government of whipping up xenophobia to block a European plan to relocate asylum seekers.

Jean Asselborn said Hungary should be temporarily or even permanently expelled from the EU for treating asylum seekers “worse than wild animals”.

In an interview with German daily Die Welt, he said: “Anyone who, like Hungary, builds fences against refugees from war or who violates press freedom and judicial independence should be excluded temporarily, or if necessary for ever, from the EU.”

    Isn’t Luxembourg the same country that allows very few people to become citizens and demands proof of income as part of the process?

    • I am not sure to be honest, but I would not be surprised.

      • CodexCoder

        To become a citizen you must be at least 18 years old, have lived in Luxembourg for at least 10 years and be fluent in all three national languages (French, German and Luxembourgish). Alternatively, you can apply for citizenship after five years of living in Luxembourg if you have ties with the country through birth, adoption or marriage.

        And as I recall from others who have tried, there are other restrictions as well (not written on a website). And from another site, Luxembourg took in only 2000 immigrants in the 1990s.

        So for a country the size of a postage stamp, with very little in population, they certainly have a big mouth.

          I guess you would rather they were flooded with Muzz?

        • Bataviawillem

          They deserve 30,000 refugees.

    • Hard Little Machine

      Yes. But on the upside they sell citizenship on the same basis.

      • FactsWillOut

        Funny that folk equate citizenship with culture.
        It is now a fait accompli that the state can make an Englishman or a Frenchman by fiat. The thousand + years of cultural development that it took to make an Englishman or a Frenchman is completely ignored by both the establishment and the people.

    It will save Hungary from holding a Huxit vote in a couple of years.

  • Clink9

    Sounds like Hungary has already “self expelled”.

    Treating mo worshipers worse than wild animals.

    That’s a feature not a bug.

    • canminuteman

      I like wild animals, and treat them with kindness.

    Throw out of the EU? That’s not a threat. That’s a reward.

  • FactsWillOut

    Again, the migrants should be concentrated in Poland.

    • Norman_In_New_York

      The Poles won’t let that happen.

      • FactsWillOut

        But Poland already have all the necessary infrastructure to accommodate them!

  • FactsWillOut

    Hungary is better at playing the EU than the Greeks.
    The EU couldn’t kick a member state out in less than 15 years, anyway. All the member state has to do is appeal it, bribe a few reps, etc, and viola, tied up in EU hearings for a decade or more. Then there’s Putin to step in and take up the slack.
    Also, a lot of dirty laundry would come out, to the chagrin of the Eurocrats.
    It’s an empty bluff.

  • Brett_McS

    Le bluff.

    Deleted my post, I see.
    The thing is, if one is unwilling or unable to slaughter one’s enemies, and one is unwilling or unable to even talk about slaughtering one’s enemies, then one’s enemies have won.

      I don’t know what a luxembourg is, but a luxembourger is a tiny hamburger.

  • FactsWillOut

    What’s with all these assholes coming down on Luxembourg? From what I’ve read in these comments, they seem to have the right idea concerning citizenship.
    At least they, unlike Canada, didn’t vote this asshole in as PM.

    Does the EU think that mahometans won’t like it in Serbia?

  • Spatchcocked

    There must have been Billions of euros in bribes by the Saudis over the decades
    for things to have come to such a sorry pass.

    No wild animals plot to take over the world, leaving a trail of blood wherever they go.
