- EU ON THE BRINK: Martin Schulz Warns Bloc Could ‘FALL APART’ After Brexit

THE EU could “fall apart” once Britain leaves the EU, former Brussels chief Martin Schulz has admitted.
The ex-European Parliament president is worried Brexit could spark further calls for other countries to leave the bloc. He also condemned Hungarian PM Viktor Orban – known for his anti-Brussels approach – for “pointing the finger of blame” at the EU. Mr Schulz said: “That blame game is a virus which could lead to the end of the European Union.”
The German, who quit his post in November, added: “You’re sitting here saying it’s their fault and their responsibility. “And throwing mud is one thing, but in the meantime the EU is falling apart. But not because of me. “I tried to keep it together, but it’s people like Mr Orban who argue against the European Union.”
