- NEW LOW FOR THE EU: Brussels HUMILIATED as 92 PER CENT of Hungarians Reject Migrant Quotas

BELEAGUERED Brussels plumbed new depths of unpopularity tonight as an astonishing 92 per cent of Hungarian voters rejected the imposition of EU migrant quotas.
The final result from the country’s historic referendum shows that more than nine in 10 voters rebelled against Jean-Claude Juncker’s EU Commission in a crushing blow to the whole euro project. In total 92.3 per cent of people voted ‘no’ to migrant quotas, compared to just 1.4 per cent who said yes. A further six per cent of the ballots were spoiled in protest.
Jubilant politicians from the ruling Fidesz party claimed victory in the historic vote shortly after polling stations closed and said it was a sign of people turning their backs on bullying Brussels.
Government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs roared: “The majority of the rejection to Brussels politics is overwhelming.” He added: “As this referendum was initiated by the government, we have no other choice but to consider the citizens’ decision binding to the government. “But it is also binding to Brussels, because they cannot go against a referendum.“
