The European Union has been facing threats of further withdrawal from the bloc as several member countries swung towards the eurosceptic right in the past couple of years. Ms Fordwich suggested the Netherlands and Sweden could soon follow Brexit Britain if the UK were to secure a beneficial withdrawal and trade deal after March 29. Speaking to RT America, the business expert said: “It’s like a sort of club, or a cult. You can’t have one person leave and take what they want and do better because what would happen to all your members?
“The other members would leave and do the same thing. So you have to prevent this.”
Swedish eurosceptic party Sweden Democrats (SW) has issued a dire warning to Brussels, suggesting the Scandinavian country could very well leave the bloc unless eurocrats accept to make substantial changes to its core institutions. A shocking poll in 2017 suggested more than half of The Netherlands would prefer to quit the EU.
Ms Fordwich continued: “There were rumours of Nexit, the Dutch leaving and The Netherlands, and Swexit after the right swing in Sweden.
“That’s the fear. The Dutch and the Swedish are two they fear might want to go.”
