Viktor Orban may have won over right-wing British politicians, but we’re not Hungary 2.0 just yet – the Independent

Director of the British Foreign Policy Group, Sophia Gaston, wrote for the Independent on the revelation that a senior advisor to Boris Johnson, Tim Montgomerie, had emphasised a spiritual connection between Johnson’s leadership and Viktor Orbán’s right-wing populist government in Hungary

She argued that the UK has nothing to learn from Hungary, and that whilst: “we are about to walk away from the European Union, and if there is indeed a dividend to this moment, it is the opportunity we have to consider not just what we can learn, but what we can teach the world. Despite our recent troubles, we remain a robust democracy, with a strong foundation of liberalism at our heart. Let us be the light on the hill.”
