The prediction comes following growing resistance across Europe, with populist and anti-EU parties experiencing significant growth in Germany, France and the Netherlands – three nations which will hold elections in 2017.

Ukip leader Paul Nuttal predicted the UK will become a “beacon of light” to other member states of the EU looking to leave.

He said: “I think after Brexit you might end up with a Frexit where France leaves, Dexit with the Danes, Nexit with the Dutch – I do believe that Brexit is just the beginning.

“People feel left behind. They feel cut off with the political process. They feel like they have nothing in common with the elites and what is happening is there is a kickback.”

Meantime, in the real, non UKIP world : Support for the EU has changed since Brexit – and not in the way you might expect



Approval of EU membership was found to have grown around the rest of the union too, a trend Bertelsmann ascribes to the repercussions of the Brexit vote. "The looming Brexit seems to have been the best advertisement for the EU," said Aart de Geus, the foundation's chairman and CEO.
...

Across Europe, 62% wanted their countries to remain EU members, up from 57% in the foundation’s previous survey in March 2016.


Among the six largest countries, the number of "remainers" in Germany rose by 8% to 69%, and pro-EU sentiment in Poland grew by 9%, reaching 77% overall. There were smaller increases in France and Italy. Only Spain saw a minor decrease, dipping from 71% to 69%.


Desire to leave the union declined across the board, from 30% to 26%. Despite a small decrease, Italy continues to have the largest share of people (41%) who would prefer to cut ties with the EU.
"The looming Brexit appears to have been the best advertisement for the EU". Well, I never. Meantime, UKIP and all those other antis keep on hammering away because their project - the destruction of the entire EU - is what their idea of the future success of the UK relies upon. They know it's isolated as things stand. Must be a bit worrying for them. And you.

Keep the cheques coming though, won't you. £350 million a week, I think you said? Plus a bit to top up on the depreciation of the pound, owing to the Brexit vote, please. One cheque'll do - I'm sure they can manage to divide it all up, despite the staff shortages. Make it out to "The EU" and send it to EU Headquartes, Brussels. Mark it for the attention of Mr J-C Juncker.

Thanks :shades_smile:

What utter nonsense.

The Eu crooks and fat cats can't even agree amongst themselves at the moment, let alone win the support of the majority of the Eu public, who they previously thought they'd silenced.

Democracy is a bitch Eric, especially when it suddenly pops up and bites you on the arse.

Shooting the messenger and burying your head under the blankets isn't going to help you here. As the EU's attitude to Brexit hardens, its popularity among the other member states rises - FACT. You voted Leave - FACT. You're on your own - FACT. My arse is completely unbitten - FACT.

Keep the cheques coming - hope you posted early for Christmas. Don't want any fines for late payment. Thanks :shades_smile:

Wrong.

Public opinion against the Eu has continued to increase.

The fact that it has already gone into a chaotic self destruct mode doesn't help, nor will more recent events.

(CNN) Exactly six months ago, Britain voted to leave the EU. How is it working out?

Well, the United Kingdom ends 2016 as the fastest-growing G7 economy, according to the IMF. British stocks are the best-performing in Europe. Unemployment keeps falling. Major firms -- GSK, AstraZeneca, Lidl, McDonald's, Google, Wells Fargo -- have announced huge investments.

"Ah," say the pessimists, "but Britain hasn't left the EU yet. Just wait until Brexit takes effect."

SORRY CHAPS, BUT THATS NOT WHAT YOU SAID AT THE TIME.

THE LINE TAKEN BY THE TREASURY, THE BANK OF ENGLAND, THE IMF AND VIRTUALLY EVERY INTERNATIONAL AGENCY WAS THE ACT OF VOTING TO LEAVE THE EU WOULD CAUSE AN IMMEDIATE ECONOMIC SHOCK.

George Osborne, then the British chancellor and prominent Remain campaigner, said that there would need to be an emergency budget within days to raise taxes and cut spending by £19 billion -- a plan that was dropped right after the vote.

Mark Carney, the governor of the Bank of England, predicted "a technical recession" -- that is, a contraction in two successive quarters. In fact, the economy expanded by 0.5% in the three months to September and seems to have expanded again during the quarter now ending.

The IMF, having predicted disaster, has been ticked off by its own watchdog for being so obsessed with European integration that it failed to be neutral.

Can't see anything in there about public opinion in the EU. More about a few people in the UK wanting to isolate it still further on the spurious grounds that it doesn't have control of its own borders.

Keep the cheques coming. Thanks :shades_smile:

Excellent. Good economic performance = higher membership fees until you leave.
