Shocking results of the latest poll by the EU Barometer, a poll of all 28 member states that is taken every other year, show that fewer than half of the EU’s citizens trust the bloc.
The report showed that only 42 per cent have confidence in the European Union. The number of citizens who do not trust Brussels is at 48 per cent.
The poll also revealed that most EU citizens of all 28 member states want to stop further expansion, which is certainly bad news for EU President Jean-Claude Juncker who during his union address this year said: “There can therefore be not a moment’s respite in our efforts to build a more united Europe.”
Lithuania with 65 per cent had the most trust in the bloc, Denmark was second with 60 per cent with Sweden at 59 per cent in third place.
Those with the least trust were unsurprisingly embattled President Emmanuel Macron’s France at 33 per cent, by his own admission said most would choose to leave if given a referendum. Even lower than France were 32 per cent in the Czech Republic, 31 per cent of the UK still have trust, while Greece had the lowest at 26 per cent.
The top concern of all EU citizens is still migration. The report revealed that: “Further enlargement of the EU to include other countries in future years is the single policy that only enjoys minority support.”
Terrorism, which is related to the issue of migration, was the second highest concern and public finances being third.
