‘EU’s vision has NO future!’ Labour MP says EU will destroy itself – and she voted REMAIN

REMAINER Caroline Flint insisted that Juncker’s vision for a “United States of Europe” will lead to the destruction of the European Union.

Brussels boss Jean-Claude Juncker announced his plans last month for a united Europeansuper bloc.Mr Juncker’s plans include taking power away from member states and introducing an overall president.

But the Labour MP told Andrew Neil: “I don’t think the vision, which was more recently laid out by Juncker in a speech saying, you know, ‘we are going to have this federal structure’, ‘we are going to have armies’.

“I don’t think that can be the future at all.”

MP Caroline Flint does not expect the EU to survive under Juncker’s vision


Ms Flint explained the current EU vision is causing a rise in far-right political parties which will help to demolish the bloc.She said: “And I think its interesting that whilst we see leaders like Merkel and Macron and others at the summits, behind in these countries, particularly in Germany and elsewhere, proportional representation has lead to the rise of far-right parties who they then have to have deals with.

“And those far-right parties are concerned about the EU, about Brussels, about immigration.

Appearing on BBC This Week, Ms Flint said she is is not sure whether the EU will survive.

She said: “I don’t see it surviving in the way that some in Brussels think it should, and expand in the way they think it should in the future at all.”French President Emannuel Macron supported Mr Juncker’s federalist vision and outlined his plan for a “profound transformation” of the EU.

Mr Macron said in a key-note speech last month that he believes the European Union should cooperate closely on defence, immigration, tax and social policy.

He said: “I want for us to have an effective European border police that everywhere has strict border control and makes sure anyone who can’t stay here is sent to their countries.”
