Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yep, the V4 leaders are a bunch of assholes close to or (in Fico's case) on par with Orbán. Though, the target countries are hypocritical with their quote demand: they don't consider what the refugees want and why (the new start they want won't be in a crisis country, nor one where their foreign language knowledge is of little help, while relatives and friends already in the target country would be help), and seem to want to distribute based on population (in contrast the distribution within Germany is based on tax income of the states).

Regarding the border fence/wall, as I wrote, the fence already built is useless to stop the refugees: still over 2,000 pass it a day, contrary to Orbán's earlier claim that it will reduce the stream to a sixth or seventh. Most walk in along railway tracks where there is a gap by necessity, others scale or cut the barbed wire and still others are taken by smugglers. It remains to be seen how the regime will manage this failure obvious to everyone (even my pro-Fidesz colleagues).
