Hungary Again

Over at the weblog of fellow monarchist Andrew Cusack, Mr. Alexander Shaw and Mr. Cusack report on Hungarian responses to inquiries of the European Commission.

And there's a video:

I agree with Daniel McAdams that Hungary has misstepped. However, it's wonderfully illustrative as an experiment.

Challenge the proggies directly and gloves really come off, don't they? "Not what you said in my office." Hoo boy. The response was exactly right (from what I'm told) but Orban has probably dug himself too deep already.

Next I want to know what happens when someone in Tibor Navracsics's position goes on the attack. If we're going to start calling inconsistencies, the why not start with the numerous proggy inconsistencies? Why not simply baldly, to their face, accuse them of attempting oppression, citing facts?

"Are you really asking me to violate the Hungarian constitution, which I swore to uphold?"
"We can hold a referendum on the constitution. When we get another 2/3rds majority on it, are you really asking me to disregard the democratic process?"
"Can you offer any explanation of how the constitution reduces our ability to pay back loans?" (Ironically it probably does, due to having to fend off proggie attacks.)

The fireworks would theoretically be spectacular.

Interesting points there, sir.

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner.
