Will Brexit encourage Denmark and others to follow?
Danish People’s Party’s deputy chairman, Morten Messerschmidt, believes that it is time for Denmark to leave the EU as well.
For the first time, there is a country that says ‘enough is enough’ to the omnivorous monster that Brussels has developed into. Now, for the first time, we will see a country sailing out of the EU’s arms…For this agreement contains, among other things, a free movement of goods. The British are now showing that one can actually cooperate well without being led by 27 Commissioners in Brussels, whom no one has elected,” he says.
A lot will depend on the success of Brexit but this may not be the only factor. Brussels, Germany and France will no doubt try to push for more power and centralization in order to assert more power over others.
This overreach could backfire, spurning more states to walk away.
