Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Thanks. I suspect it would take "tanks in the streets" before the EU got serious about this. In the meantime any threats to EU Treaties/policies may result in warning noises. I suspect and regret that real change will depend on democratic opposition forces acting almost without any support - until prominent people start getting killed...

I wouldn't underestimate the power of opposition figures lobbying EP parliamentarians directly via email/social media about what is happening and keeping a daily newsflow coming out of Hungary. Many EP members will be quite supportive on human rights issues regardless of their economic ideological leanings.
