The author of The strange death of Europe, Douglas Murray spoke about the European elites and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban too in an interview with French Le Figaro.
He stressed that political leaders have fundamentally changed their societies without the permission of the people, or even against their will.
“Many are criticising Viktor Orban. But the question is very simple: who was right in 2015? Orban or Merkel? The latter was punished by her voters and now AfD is Germany’s biggest opposition party,”
he said. According to the British author, it shows the incredibly arrogance of European elites that politicians and pundits are criticising Viktor Orban, while he only fulfilled the will of his people.
