From my article in yesterday’s The Sunday Times:
“How would we feel if Orban decided to grant Hungarian citizenship to indicted Russian war criminals and they showed up at our airport, sashaying through the Schengen corridor with a Diner’s Club Card and a lease agreement for some waterfront property?
“By Malta’s interpretation of the exclusive rights of member states, it is nobody’s business whom Orban gives his country’s passports to. And, by virtue of being EU members, we are obliged to treat all citizens of his country, no matter the basis on which his country recognises them as its citizens, as if they were our own.
“In this universe, fugitive Nazis won’t have to hide in Argentina. They can colonise St George’s Bay instead.”
