Can the EU survive Brexit?

Yet many of those who campaigned for a Leave vote from the Tory side are even less optimistic about what comes next for Brussels. “It’s doomed,” says Sir Bill Cash MP, chair of the European Scrutiny Committee and chief Maastricht rebel under John Major. “The monetary union system is full of internal contradictions and it can’t work. There’s no such thing as a one size fits all policy.” .....In other words, he reckons Britain has got out just in time. Collapse, he says, “is nearer than people think. The Greeks are a basket case, the Italians are in dire straits, the French economy is also in tatters, and Germany faces massive internal pressure from the AfD.”
