GETTY   Most Dutch people want Britain to quit the EU, the poll reveals

A staggering 80 per cent of people surveyed by a national newspaper in the Netherlands believe the UK should take back control from Brussels on June 23.The sensational poll, carried out by De Telegraaf, lays bare their anger towards the EU amid the refugee crisis and concerns over the Eurozone.

Many hope Brexit will deal a crushing blow to the doomed European project, which the front page of the paper brands a “monster”.

“People distrust Europe and some people even hate it. Maybe the figure is so high because the EU isn’t popular any more.

“It is failing to solve problems like the refugee crisis or the economy. It also very demanding when it comes to how the budget should be spent.”


GETTY    They believe the EU has widened the gap between rich and poor

Just 16 per cent of the 10,118 people polled were in favour of Britain staying in the bloc, with four per cent undecided.One furious Telegraaf reader told the paper the EU is “only for the rich” and has widened the gap between rich and poor.

Another said: “Brexit will be detrimental to the cohesion of the EU… If Britain gets out, that is the beginning of the dismantling.”

There is major unrest in Holland over the European Union – with 88 per cent of those surveyed also wanting their own referendum on membership.Supporters of a Nexit – as it is known in the Netherlands – are hoping Britain’s departure will lead the way for dismantling the EU.

Geert Wilders, leader of the right-wing and anti-EU Party for Freedom, said Brexit could “liberate” Europe from Brussels.

Mr Wilders also attacked David Cameron’s doom-mongering pro-EU campaign, accusing the Prime Minister of saying “stupid things” to win over voters.

He said: “I hope that Mr Cameron will continue saying the most stupid things. It helps a lot. People know they are being frightened by fear-mongers.”

Last week a separate survey found a whopping 79 per cent of people in Germany hope Britain stays in the 28-member bloc.The poll, carried out by TNS Public Affairs, also revealed 70 per cent of Irish people and 64 per cent of Poles back Remain.

France was most in favour of a Leave vote, with 34 per cent hoping Britain quits the EU – down from 41 per cent in April.
