It seems the referendum forced on the Dutch government by a widely supported petition has put the cat among the pigeons.
Holland currently holds the EU presidency and the ruling party was in favour of EU expansion to include the Ukraine.
Although they are terming the result as advisory, rather than binding, and despite the low turnout of 32% ish it seems there is little room for the
government to wriggle out of this with 61% of voters rejecting the proposal.
Could this be the first salvo in the fight to dismantle the EU? Holland has a growing anti EU sentiment, and with the UK referendum looming this
would seem to add a little more fuel to the fire of what will happen over the next few months.
Personally, I want the UK out of the EU and have done for years, so I see this as good news, at the very least, it will cause some of those remote
figures in Brussels and Strasburg to question the relationship between the EU and the people who pay for it. At best it will give a little confidence
to the leavers who are sitting on the fence through project fear.
