The whole of the West has to understand that Central and Eastern Europe are lost in the woods, but after all, the differences between Anglo-American liberal conservatism and Hungarian conservatism have been exaggerated, says John O'Sullivan. The British commentator and editor, and former advisor to Margaret Thatcher, moved to Hungary to launch the Danube Institute in Budapest.

„The sooner European leaders realize that the euro, as presently constructed, cannot work, the quicker they will save it” – says John O’Sullivan conservative columnist and political commentator who also served as a senior policywriter and speechwriter for Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Hungarian Globe caught up with O'Sullivan during his recent trip to Budapest to participate in the opening of the Cardinal Mindszenty exhibition at the House of Terror Museum. In the interview, O'Sullivan suggests that the euro should be divided into two parts: a southern, soft one and a northern, strong one. He opposes the proposal of Viviane Reding for quotas for women in corporate management and thinks a federal EU would not work. We also got his insights on British politics and the Tories.
