In the Buda Castle, at a passing-out ceremony of the Police Studies Faculty and Disaster Control Institute of the National Public Service University, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said that today Hungary represents order in a Europe of increasing disorder.
The Prime Minister said that a number of leaders in Europe are not willing to commit to the fight against modern-day mass population movement: the flow of illegal migrants pouring into Europe. The result, he said, is a decline in public security and the threat of violence and general dissatisfaction – though Hungary has moved in the opposite direction. Over the last few years millions of Hungarians have had their faith restored in Hungary being a safe and liveable country. He believes that “today’s disordered Europe” is unable to find solutions to the challenges posed by illegal migrants “laying siege” to our borders, the flourishing business of people smuggling, and terrorism.
In the future, however, an advantage will be enjoyed by those countries which succeed in maintaining order, and are able to guarantee security and legality, the Prime Minister pointed out. In his view, without order there is no economic growth, there is no investment, and “there is no good life”. He added that “The more you succeed in upholding law and order in Hungary, the more Hungary’s position will improve in the competition between nations”.
Mr. Orbán also mentioned the British EU referendum, in which the “Leave” camp prevailed. He said that the citizens of the United Kingdom have decided to take back control over their own fate, “they have had enough of being lectured to”, they have had enough of insecurity, the state of paralysis, “the flood of words without actions”, and the fact that they were beginning to feel that they were no longer at home in Europe.
The Prime Minister expects the EU to change rapidly in response: “we must and we shall retailor this European suit”. Using a chess analogy, he said that “If we remove a piece, the whole game changes; and if we remove a knight – and the United Kingdom is a knight in European politics – everything must be reconsidered”...
