Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Membership in the EU requires commitment to certain basic principles: democracy, human rights, the rule of law. That's what members signed up for when they joined. Its not unreasonable to expect them to keep that promise, or for the EU to sanction (and ultimately eject) members who depart from those principles (if they don't eject themselves first).

And that said: greater care in assessing new members would help prevent such problems in future, and things would be better if the EU had taken such care in the past.
