What, I wonder, would be the reaction if a Hungarian who had no English, who had never visited the country, were to write an editorial savaging the United Kingdom for not being a real democracy as it has no proper constitution, decrying that the head of state is the result of a coitus, not an election, and the little freedom of speech left is being destroyed by David Cameron through a royal charter (a royal charter, not even the fig leaf of a law, I mean how fascistic and anachronistic can you get?)
Tibor Fischer is right, nobody would take that very seriously. Point taken. Still, four revisions to the Hungarian constitution in the past eighteen months sounds like a lot. Some think it’s reason to worry.
