Guest post: The day after the referendum

The much anticipated referendum about the resettlement of migrants in Hungary was declared invalid, however, those who voted overwhelmingly rejected the plans of Brussels. This gives both the left and the right the opportunity to claim victory. The government, which campaigned intensively , can say that more than three million people are supporting their policies, which is one million more than what they had at the last general election. The left, which didn't dare to take a straightforward position, urged its supporters to stay at home. They will of course interpret the invalid referendum as a surge in support for them and as an expression of dislike and distrust towards the government. However, that would be a mistake, since the flood of illegal migration will not be over any time soon, and this, no doubt, will favour Orbán's policies. The only real losers of this vote were the liberals, who called on their supporters to vote yes. It is clear, that even people close to the socialists and the Democratic Coalition do not want migrants to be resettled in Hungary. Although the vote is over, the issue of illegal migration will dominate European politics for years to come, and it seems, that the inability of Western Europe to come up with a viable solution will only favour the right and anti-establishment parties throughout the continent. Irrespective of the outcome, the facts on the ground have not changed. Germany is in turmoil and their plan to push their agenda down the throats of the unwilling countries won't work. Brexit was only the first serious consequence of the increasingly detached way of politics of Brussels, and there are more warning signs from France, Austria and the Netherlands. The German Chancellor herself admitted to the fact that the crisis was too much to handle and , if she could, she would turn back time. If Ms Merkel won't heed her own words, she will contribute to the disintegration of the EU.
