Dutch no vote on trade deal ‘shows Europeans are sick of Brussels’: Brexit campaigners say result proves UK is ‘not alone’ in anti-EU sentiment
Far right Dutch politician Geert Wilders, pictured, said the No Vote was ‘the start of the end of the EU’
- Dutch MP Geert Wilders praised the electorate’s rejection of the trade deal
- Some 61 per cent of those who voted rejected the controversial deal
- However, only 32 per cent of those entitled to vote cast their ballots
- Brexit campaigners said Brussels was a ‘remote self-serving bureaucracy’
The rejection by Dutch voters of an EU trade deal with Ukraine is proof anti-Brussels sentiment is spreading across the bloc, Eurosceptics claimed last night.
Brexit campaigners said the result proved the UK was ‘not alone’ and warned people had had enough of a ‘remote self-serving bureaucracy’.
The final outcome of Holland’s ‘advisory’ referendum showed a No vote of 61 per cent against the deal, on a turnout of 32 per cent.
The poll was hailed as a ‘humiliating rejection’ of an expansionist EU and a boost for Eurosceptics across the continent.
David Cameron said he hoped the rejection by Dutch voters would not affect the outcome of Britain’s referendum on EU membership.
But hailing the victory as a nail in the EU’s coffin, far-Right Dutch MP Geert Wilders said the result could help secure a vote for Brexit, and warned it could be ‘the start of the end of the European Union as we know it’.
