I really hope they succeed and that this is just the start of europe pushing back against the liberalism!

Hungarians were expected to resoundingly reject EU refugee quotas in a referendum on Sunday.

The rejection of the quotas - which would see Hungary resettling a proportion of the Syrian and Iraqi refugees who have arrived in Italy and Greece over the past year - will be a victory for the country’s right-wing prime minister, Viktor Orban, in his long running battle with Brussels.

Opinion polls show support for a rejection of EU migrant quotas of more than 80 percent among those who say they will vote. But they also indicate turnout might not necessarily top the 50 percent required for the poll to be valid.

Voting began at 6am (5am UK time) and ended at 7pm (6pm UK time).
