Hungary and the EU (Carmen Negrin, -France, 02/09/12 4:40 am)

I differ with the analysis of Alain de Benoist (7 February), inasmuch as there was a referendum in Hungary in 2003 as to whether Hungarians wanted or not to adhere to the European Union. The results were 83.8% in agreement with a 45.6% participation.

JE comments: A question for our EU-watchers. Has any referendum on the EU been held since the beginning of the Debt Crisis? EU membership used to be viewed in the peripheral European nations as the quickest ticket to riches and respectability.  Now the Greek experience is showing otherwise.

  • Croatia's Referendum on the EU (Nigel Jones, -UK 02/09/12 7:19 AM)
    JE asked on 9 February if any nation has held a referendum on the EU since the beginning of the Debt Crisis. The answer is "Yes." As recently as 22 January 2012 the people of Croatia (or the 45% of them who turned out to vote) voted to join the EU in 2013 by a 66% - 33% margin. The news from the southern end of the Balkan peninsula clearly has not reached them yet! The way things are going it looks like Greece will tumble out of the eurozone as Croatia tumbles in.

    JE comments: My thanks to Nigel for the update.  Does Croatia still see EU membership as a ticket to "riches and respectability" (my words, perhaps clumsily chosen)?  Two-thirds of voting Croats must think so.

  • Hungary and the EU (Alain de Benoist, -France 02/10/12 2:00 AM)
    Carmen Negrín (9 February) speaks about a referendum on the EU which was held in Hungary eight years ago.

    Any proof that the Hungarian public opinion has not changed eight years later?
