I think what we're seeing now with Hungary, Poland, the Czech republic, Slovakia and possibly the Balts is the formation of the putative inner and outer Bolgi of a two-part Europe.

You can tell quite a lot about folk by their reaction to the news that 4,000 tipsy cyclists were imprisoned by the previous left-liberal-proEU Polish regime. OK, they only get jail time for a second or further offence, but how many times have I rowed back to a mooring after a few pints? Jailing intoxicated cyclists is alien to England, but most Poles consider it reasonable. It's hard to judge what happens in the eastern states by our own standards; travel and transport may be extraordinarily rapid, but cultures take much longer to change.
