Enlargement could spell the end of the EU

A stark warning from Richard North, author of The Castle of Lies: Why Britain Must Get Out of Europe and former research director for the Europe of Democracies and Diversities Group in the European Parliament.

If, against all the odds, the Constitution does go ahead, it would be like locking down the lid on a pressure cooker and sealing off the safety valve. The break-up might take a little longer, but it will be explosive when it comes, leaving, as we write in our book, “a wasteland from which it will take many years for the people of Europe to emerge.”
