Austria’s new extremist right-wing government is sadly no surprise. We are, after all, surrounded by the USA, Poland, Hungary, Israel and the unmissable gnarls in the UK, France and Germany, to name but a few.
The Austrians have already announced that they will be cutting the monthly payments to refugees.
Has the time come to boycott Austria back to its senses? How about skiing in France or in Italy instead? How about giving the Salzburg Festival a miss this year? If it makes it any easier, Munich’s opera is better anyway.
