"We Can't Be Blackmailed": Hungary & Poland Threaten To Veto EU Stimulus Package

• by Tyler Durden

.... - this after West European nations have frequently derided Poland under President Andrzej Duda and Hungary under Prime Minister Viktor Orbán as "authoritarian regimes" - something also echoed widely in US and UK media.

Bloomberg reports on Friday that "Poland joined Hungary in threatening to veto the European Union's 1.8 trillion-euro ($2.1 trillion) budget over the bloc's efforts to make sure funds only go to countries that adhere to democratic standards."

In EU technocrat-speak adhering to "democratic standards" tends to mean everything from open EU borders, to state services for all migrants, to redefining marriage, to ceding sovereignty to a bunch of bureaucrats in Brussels, to abortion on demand.
