Hungary

- Nick Sitter, CEU, talks to Norwegian state television NRK 1 news on:

1) The conflict between the Hungarian government and the EU is linked both to economic policy and political concentration of power;
2) polls show that although 1/10 Hungarians support Jobbik and 2/10 support Fidesz, the remaining 7/10 don't; and while Jobbik might burn the EU flag, the mainstream opposition actually waved EU flags on the January 2nd demonstration;
3) the government faces a choice between a deal with the EU and deepening economic (and political) crisis.
