Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Indeed it's worth to point out that Orbán was elected Vice-President of the EPP for three successive terms (holding the post 2002 to 2012), and the late Wilfried Martens made sure that Orbán got high-profile support in his pre-2010 campaigns (including failed between-election campaigns to bring down the then governments). And even after he angered Merkel & co by undermining central bank independence and angered EPP members of the Barroso cabined with a lot more, whenever Orbán visited the EP, the EPP MEPs refrained from criticism or defended him.
