The domino effect? More than half of Dutch voters now want to LEAVE the European Union
The UK left the European Union on Friday the 31st of January 2020. However, a recent poll conducted by The Bruges Group revealed that more than half of those surveyed in the Netherlands want to leave the European Union.
The poll showed that 56 per cent of those surveyed in the Netherlands want to leave the EU, with one of the main reasons being the ability to gain other trade deals similar to that of the UK within Europe as well as the rest of the world.
Euroscepticism is on the rise throughout Europe, and Brussels is facing a popularity meltdown. The Bruges Group think-tank stated that “Across the continent of Europe and beyond, people want to take back control of their lives.”
They further added that “along the lines that we saw in the UK, can over time, just like it did in Britain, move the Netherlands towards the exit.” they continued by saying “Britain will welcome our allies, the Dutch people, in a new post-EU Europe.”
The survey was carried out in time just before the next general election in the Netherlands with Geert Wilders, a massive Euroskeptic, leading in the polls.
If Geert Wilders wins the election this will send shivers down the EU’s spine. This is because along with Holland, France and Italy are seeming to follow down an increasing path into Euroskepticism.
