(Brussels) “The Hungarian government campaign distorts the truth and seeks to paint a dark picture of a secret plot to drive more migration to Europe. The Commission would therefore like to set the record straight, point by point”. This is what the European Commission said in a statement issued today in response to the launch by the Hungarian government of a campaign – complete with billboards, full-page newspaper advertisements and a letter from the Prime Minister addressed to all Hungarian citizens – entitled “You too have the right to know what Brussels is planning!”. In its statement, the European Commission agrees that citizens “do deserve to know the truth about what the EU is doing. But we believe they deserve fact not fiction”. Which is why in a short booklet, it debunks seven Hungarian government claims. “The European Union – the booklet ends – is not and has never been about ‘Brussels’ but a project driven and designed by its Member States, each of which has decided unilaterally and democratically that this is the path they wish to adopt, including Hungary”. “Each and every one of those Member States, including Hungary, takes both the responsibility and the credit for the decisions taken collectively”.
