Budapest Viktor Orban, the Hungarian prime minister, endorsed a Polish-Italian right-wing alliance for the European parliament elections in May. Mr Orban criticised France and Germany, describing President Macron as the ringleader of pro-immigration policy and saying that he “must fight” him. He also said that German politicians tried to force him to accept migrants, who were “bad for Hungary”. Mr Orban was the first EU leader to take an extreme line against immigration, with a razor-wire fence along the southern border to stop tens of thousands of refugees fleeing war zones in Syria and Iraq.
