    Italy’s anti-establishment 5-Star movement has called for a referendum on whether to keep the Euro.

    Buoyed by big gains in local elections, Luigi Di Maio, a vice president of the lower house of parliament, said: "We want a consultative referendum on the Euro.

    “The Euro as it is today does not work. We either have alternative currencies or a 'Euro 2’.on

    "We entered the European Parliament to change many treaties.

    “We are now waiting for the results of the Brexit referendum.

    “The mere fact that a country like Great Britain is holding a referendum on whether to leave the EU signals the failure of the European Union.”

    People opposed the EU propose referendum to leave EU.

    Now Mr Supreme-Pontiff, or may I call you Frank, the final questions are what is your religion and what do you think of the sanitary arrangements for arboreal bears?

    UK has the opportunity to become once more a leading country by voting Brexit. Do not screw it and ignore the media.

    A no-name party in Italy wants a referendum, on the euro, which it won't get.

    Hardly the collapse of the EU your thread title would indicate. Euroscepticism is prevalent in several EU countries, but nowhere is it a mainstream view.

    88% of respondents to a Dutch newspaper are in support of holding a referendum.

    88% is rather high for it to not be "a mainstream view", don't you think?

    We either stand united, or we fall divided. Historically, at every single opportunity when Europe was more closely linked, it was more prosperous and peaceful. When it wasn't, well - you had things like the Hundred Years War and both World Wars.

    Of course every damn country has xenophobic bigots in it. But that doesn't mean that you should listen to them.

    Only Wilders' freedom party is receptive to the idea of such a referendum, so yes it's not a mainstream view and it's unlikely to come to pass.

    The Dutch may well reject certain integration measures, like they did the EU constitution, but it is very unlikely they will leave altogether.

    Great news! Anyone considering voting remain: the EU is finished either way - real question is whether we leave and minimise damage now!
