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

There have been various discussions about having a "variable speed" EU over the years with some members frustrated by the slow rate of progress in others. In practice, this is what we have now with some members in the Eurozone, Schengen, customs Union, Single Market etc. and others not.

All I am saying is that we should not let Orban obstructionism stop us now, and he can stay out of it if he wants. If he complains too much about Brussels overreach the unspoken, but real, retort can always be that he can invoke A. 50 if he doesn't like it. Europe should make it plain that obstructionism won't be tolerated and we will move on without him if required.

The subliminal message to Putin will be the same. No more interference and messing by Russia will be tolerated. You have overplayed your hand.
