Plans for a United States of Europe by 2025 suffered a damning blow today after a new poll revealed they have little support across the major nations.
German politician Martin Schulz – the former President of the European Parliament and domestic rival to Angela Merkel – promoted the plan at a party conference.
He called for a rapid development of the EU after Britain leaves, accelerating integration and leaving behind those who do not want it.
But the plan is supported by less than a third of people in seven major nations – and just 10 per cent in Britain, in a vindication of last year’s Leave vote.
It’s always been about what the technocrats would impose upon the people.
