Populist Danish People’s Party (DF) member of the European Parliament Morten Messerschmidt has predicted that his country will leave the European Union within the next decade due to the success of Brexit.
Morten Messerschmidt MEP, who was formerly an MP in the Danish parliament, said that he believed Brexit will be a success for the UK and that it could lead to further referendums on EU membership in various member states over the next ten years, Danish tabloid B.T. reports.
“I think Brexit will be a great success and that many people around the continent will enviously look at how the British have disengaged – that they have regained power on border control, foreigners, social policy, etc., and it has not hit them financially,” Messerschmidt said and added, “And then I think more countries will demand referendums and opt-out.”
He went on to add that many people in Brussels, the heart of the EU, fear that Brexit will be a success for the UK but said it “may be some time before the dust settles. That’s also why I give it time and say 10 years. At that time, I think there have been referendums in several of the countries.”
