‘Respect democracy’ Belgian MP warns EU is DOOMED if Brussels punishes UK over Brexit
Johan Van Overtveldt believes the EU in its current form is “dead” because it spends too much time focussing on regulation size olive pots instead of securing its borders.
He said the “ever-closer union” needs urgent reform to become “different” and “better” and should spend its time tackling security, immigration and trade.
Mr Van Overtveldt said: “Sixty years after signing the Treaty of Rome, and 25 years after the Maastricht Treaty, the European Union is in trouble and is certainly in need of new inspiration and new directions. The EU cannot continue operating the way it does today.
