"EUROPE is turning against Brussels with anti-EU feeling spreading through the Continent"
Much as in the US, a refugee/migrant influx is threatening to tear Europe apart while also moving the entire continent towards a Cloward-Piven style financial collapse.
In fact, the entire western world, as operated by the political ruling establishment, appears to be governing against the will of its people, almost as if by rote.
But, much as in the United States, European citizens have also had enough...the question becomes one of asking what are the odds?
A huge migrant / refugee influx, of individuals, mostly untrained in living within a civil society, continues unabated from the third world to the first world, in both Europe and the US, even as crime is soaring throughout the West, at an unprecedented rate.
What are the odds of the same exact set of events happening on both sides of the globe at precisely the same time....and in both instances, threatening the stability of the entire western world? But also, will the ruling oligarchy listen to its citizens, if a departure from the EU is demanded? Will the US political class listen to its citizens if a halt to illegals surging over the border, is demanded?
Once you seek to answer these questions, all the evidence points to an unthinkable singularity.
It's all been engineered, from the very start, by a Globalist movement that is intent upon remaking the entire global economy into a system of centralized world governance, regardless of what their citizens demand....~ Refocus Notes
Optimism about the EU’s future has plummeted in all but three of the 28 member states, most strikingly in the Netherlands and Germany, where people are now overwhelmingly negative about the outlook for the union.
According to the latest figures from the EU’s own Eurobarometer survey, the scale of optimism is lowest in Greece, where just 34 percent are upbeat about the future of the EU, compared with 63 percent who are pessimistic.
In Cyprus, fewer than four in 10 – 37 percent – are positive about the EU’s prospects, compared with 58 percent who are negative.
In Austria, 37 percent are optimistic, compared with 56 percent who are pessimistic.
In the UK, the figures are 46 per cent optimistic and 44 per cent pessimistic.
Germany has seen the biggest fall in the number of people who are optimistic about the future, with a 14 percent drop since spring last year.
Conversely, optimism is highest in Ireland and among the eastern European countries, with 73 percent in Romania and 70 per cent in Poland saying they are positive about the future of the EU.
The bi-annual survey conducted by the European Commission gauges public opinion across all member states.
It was carried out between November 7 and 17 last year when the refugee crisis was getting worse.
Migration is considered to be the most fundamental issue the EU must deal with.
It is mentioned by 58 per cent of those questioned – a 20 percent increase since spring 2015.
The majority of the population in 25 of the 28 member states have a negative feeling about immigration of people from outside the EU.
Around nine in 10 Europeans said additional measures should be taken to fight illegal immigration.
Last night Arron Banks, founder of Leave.EU, said: “It is no surprise that the rest of Europe has finally woken up to the fact that the EU is a failed project. It is now clear there is a rising tide of Eurosceptic discontent across the entire Continent.
“As usual, Britain is leading the way and taking decisive action by holding a referendum which will liberate us from this overbearing, archaic, expensive, bureaucratic institution.”
The Netherlands is looking to follow in Britain’s footsteps by holding its own referendum.
A Dutch opinion poll last week revealed 53 per cent want an in-out vote with 44 percent opposed and the rest unsure.
Pollster Maurice de Hond also asked people how they would vote in a referendum.
His results showed the remain and leave groups are very close, with 44 percent saying they would vote to stay compared with 43 percent voting to leave.
Member states also feel the image of the EU is suffering as the union struggles to survive.
Its image has lost ground in 24 of the 28 member states since spring 2015, with Estonia and Germany seeing the sharpest fall.
In Germany, there was an 11-point drop in the number of people saying they had a positive image of the EU.
The EU’s image is neutral for a majority of the population in 15 countries, up from 10 in spring 2015, and negative in Cyprus and Austria.
The countries where people are most likely to have a positive image of the EU are Romania (57 per cent), Poland (55), Ireland (54), Lithuania (53) and Croatia (51).
Trust in the EU has also plunged by eight points since spring 2015...
