Europe’s new schism: As Hungary’s anti-migrant PM seeks re-election, ROBERT HARDMAN reveals how four Eastern member states – whose leaders are treated as populist morons by Brussels – pose an even bigger threat to the EU than Brexit

On one side is the Brussels old guard, cheered by the fact that German Chancellor Angela Merkel has finally managed to cobble together a coalition government.
On the other side, however, is the new existential threat to the Brussels elite, the self-styled ‘bad boys’ of Europe, including Hungary, whose avowedly anti-immigration Prime Minister Viktor Orban ([pictured) is set to win another landslide election victory, as well as Czech Republic and Slovakia.
He has endorsed weekend, billboards and newspaper advertisements with queues of non-white migrants and a big red badge saying ‘STOP’.
