Italy held a referendum back in December and they voted to leave and they could be having snap elections as soon as June. Greece can't leave as they are hostage to Germany who now own most major roads airports and shipping terminals. Netherlands is the next one considering leaving or at least Geert Wilders supporters are. Sweden I doubt very much will leave. Fortunately for Norway they voted no to the EU and have never looked back. Portugal may have to leave due to the huge cost of being a member which is bankrupting the country same as Greece. Even the Danish Prime Minister has admitted that now after Brexit, many will start to reassess their membership of the EU. France will leave if Marine le Pen wins (its neck and neck atm)
All it needs for the EU to crumble entirely is probably one more country like France or Spain to leave and I think the others will follow suit
Brexit doesn't mean we Brits hate Europe it means we dislike the EU. We didn't vote for the EU, we voted for the EEC...the EU is nothing like the EEC in its current transformation..we never voted to hand over power and decision making to another country. Those not from Europe would be stunned at the ridiculous rules & regulations that have been imposed on us and the rest of Europe by these bungling over paid idiots in Brussels

There is a chance the EU will realise that cutting off their own nose to spite their face is a an act of folly. It'll be payment for the UK actually keeping Europe from falling into tyranny over the last two centuries. The UK will survive and probably hand back the severed nose with an embarrassed apology for disrupting EU group-think.

Highly unlikely as UK are one of the most hated countries in Europe, most European countries will gladly see UK ripped apart.
