I think it's best not to get into a debate (political or otherwise), but does anyone understand why Hungary has become the "choke point" ? I've looked at the maps of the EU on the BBC website, and found these It seems that the migrants are coming up from Greece, where they were already in the EU. But then they cross into Macedonia and then Serbia and then (until a few days ago) into Hungary. What was wrong with travelling up from Greece into Bulgaria and Romania and then Hungary, thereby staying within the EU ? Or if insisting on Serbia, why not simply then accept the fence and straightaway cross west into Croatia or east into Romania ? I just do not understand the insistence on the Serbia-Hungary border now that it has been closed.
