While for the past two months a Nexit has been on the cards after Dutch voters overwhelmingly rejected a Ukraine-European Union treaty

Details of Berlin’s concerns were outlined in a finance ministry strategy document.

Angela Merkel’s country faces having to pay an extra £2.44billion a year to the annual EU budget once Britain has left.

Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, warned that Europe needs to change its ways.“Brussels must hear the voice of the people, this is the biggest lesson from this decision,” he told public radio.

“But Europe is strong only if it can give answers to major issues such as immigration that would strengthen Europe itself and not weaken it. The EU failed to give these answers.”

Another critic of the EU, the leader of Poland’s ruling party, said that the UK referendum result shows the need for reform of the EU.

“The conclusion is obvious. We need a new European treaty,” said Jaroslaw Kaczynski, who heads the Law and Justice party.

“We need a positive reaction, and not persistent movement in the same direction, a direction which has led to crisis,” he added.

Tensions are rising across the EU, with Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands, and Sweden all facing demands for referendums over Europe.

The Brexit vote is expected to encourage populist parties in Europe to seek similar referendums for their nations.
