Both countries have ignored EU proposals to relocate 160,000 migrants and the rest of the bloc is set to take action to ensure they share the burden.Poland has ignored criticism from the European Commission over its handling of the migrant crisis and last week Beata Szydlo, the country’s prime minister, criticised EU plans for a “two-speed” Europe which would allow more powerful members to develop faster than their poorer neighbours.

Meanwhile, Hungary has pushed back against the centralisation of powers in Brussels and eurosceptic leader Viktor Orban called for the country’s borders to be closed during the height of the 2015 migrant crisis.
The two countries will now have to decide if they are willing to maintain their anti-migrant rhetoric if it puts their EU membership under threat, a diplomatic source told the Times.
The source said: “They will have to make a choice: are they in the European system or not? You cannot blackmail the EU, unity has a price.”
Could their unwillingness to accept migrants quotas spell the end of the EU for Poland & Hungary?The European Court of Justice (ECJ) is expected to look into the legality of the migrant quotas with a judgment, widely expected to be in favour of them, due before the end of the year.The source added: “We are confident that the ECJ will confirm validation, then they [Poland and Hungary] must abide by the decision.
“If they don’t then they will face consequences, both financial and political.“No more opt-outs, there is no more ‘one foot in and one foot out’.
“We are going to be very tough on this.”

The EU’s migrant quotas have been widely criticised for being ineffective, with some eastern European members including Slovakia and the Czech Republic waiting for disputes between the EU, Hungary and Poland to be resolved before accepting their share of migrants.Germany, France and Italy have called for a permanent system of quotas to replace the emergency measures currently in place, which would include fines and penalties for failing to comply.
