The latest forecast for the European elections in June 2024 show the out-of-touch EU is on course for a very bloody nose

Those driving the European Union's integrationist agenda are still emphatic about their aim: A single European superstate.

Mario Draghi, the former Italian Prime Minister, openly called for this recently, demanding the European Union become a fully-formed state in itself.


In doing so, he characterised what many EU politicians have long desired, whilst trying to pretend otherwise.

Draghi was quoted as saying: "We need a coordinated foreign policy, because the foreign ministers see each other, but do not agree."

National, democratically-elected governments putting their own citizens first and sometimes disagreeing? Oh, that clearly would never do.

Meanwhile veteran hard-left Belgian MEP Guy Verhofstadt has backed a plan to do away with national vetoes, boasting: "The European Parliament proposes radical and ambitious reform of the treaties...creating a defence union."

The EU's insatiable appetite for centralised power is, precisely, what was predicted by Brexiteers before the 2016 referendum.

And the European establishment seem utterly determined to push on with expansion and concentrating power in the hands of a privileged few. They may have some trouble ahead though, with 720 MEPs set to be elected between June 6 and 9 next year.

Voters across Europe don't exactly seem enamoured with this direction the bloc is taking. And were they even asked? Of course not.

Dutch voters recently made the pro-Nexit Freedom Party - led by Geert Wilders - the biggest in the country and on the brink of forming a coalition government.

Polish research shows a majority - 52%, ironically, are opposed to this EU plan.

And then you have a devastating election forecast that will send chills up the spins of Eurocrats in Brussels.

It shows a surge in support for Eurosceptic forces right across the continent, from Marine Le Pen's party in France to the AFD in Germany and Matteo Salvini's Lega Nord in Italy.

According this analysis, this group of right-wing parties would go from 60 to 87 seats in the EU Parliament - a staggering 45% surge.

By comparison the Green parties would fall from 72 to 52 seats.

Ultimately being inside the European Union means countries are irrevocably swept up and swallowed by the Brussels agenda. If you don't want ever-closer union you only have one option - to leave.

Next summer's European elections will be a fascinating barometer as to how the public - ordinary people across Europe - really feel about the ever more radical EU integrationist agenda. And they don't seem very impressed.
