  • The EU: who else is eyeing the door, and to what degree?

    The UK can't be the only one. Who else may spin the electoral wheel on the subject?
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

    The Dutch maybe genuine contenders.

      There's a sizable anti-eu block in all countries, like in UK mostly the older voters. I doubt any of them are strong enough to even force a referendum at the moment, and in any case people want to see what happens to UK first...especially with Scots and Gibraltar.

          Foreign ministers of the original 6 EU countries (Belgium, France, Netherlands, Italy, Luxembourg and Germany) met today in Berlin to discuss the response to Brexit. Judging from the statement made by Germany's foreign minister, it looks like they do not intend to allow a repeat of Brexit anywhere. The German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier told reporters "I am confident that these countries [the original six] can also send a message that we won't let anyone take Europe from us". An unfortunate turn of phrase which makes it clear where power actually resides in the EU and how the more powerful members of the union regard it.

            I do not think so.
            There is an indeed vocal minority lead by Geert Wilders (of the infamous hair-do) but I consider the possibility of a Nexit, especially after the hang-over feeling that followed the Brexit, as very unlikely

              I would assume that the break will come when Germany, France or Italy decides to leave. I put them in that order, in terms of likelihood of leaving. Remember, it was Russia which left the Soviet Union. The UK's leaving first is a little different, since they were never completely in

                          Greece may leave though then there economy will collapse. I don't see the EU complaining about that one.

                          But other than that no one. the EU offers them more than it takes
                          you think you a real "bleep" solders you "bleep" plastic solders don't wory i will make you in to real "bleep" solders!! "bleep" plastic solders

                            Greek economy has collapsed for 10 years now. Part of resentment about EU is about how badly Greece was treated.

                              Spike in number of Britons asking about moving to Canada.

                              Google reports surge in U.K. searches for 'move to Canada,' 'move to Gibraltar'
