‘Final Nail In The Coffin’ – Batten Says Brexit Will Finish The EU
Gerard Batten MEP, UKIP Leader, told the Daily Express that Brexit, if we achieve it will be the “final nail in the coffin” for the EU.
However, this will not be the initial cause of the collapse of the EU Mr Batten said. The first factor he cited was the “collapse of the Euro” and the “austerity policies” that it has saddled the people of Greece and Italy with – indeed, there is a growing divergence between northern and southern European countries with people in the northern states such as Germany ‘fed up’ with paying for southern states as they see it.
The second factor will be the continued immigration crisis which the EU “intends to make worse” next year when it starts work on the “UN compact on migration”.
Mr Battens comments come as Jean Claude Juncker used his State Of The Union address to condemn “unchecked nationalism” as being “riddled with poison and deceit.” Somewhat bizarrely, he claimed that to “love nations is to love Europe”. Mr Juncker, addressing MEPs, called for Europe to move “forward as one” and “revive the lost art of compromise.”
