Brexit - Fears of a "domino effect"
Brexit - Die Angst vor dem Domino-Effekt
After the surprising decision of UK's voters to quit the European union, our local reporters discuss whether the outcome of the British referendum might trigger a domino effect in other EU member states like the Czech Republic or the Netherlands and provide exclusive insights: According to surveys, more than half of the Czech lack confidence in the European Union. Therefore Czech MEP Petr Mach has already prepared a guidebook "How to exit from the European Union".In the Netherlands, right-wing politician Geert Wilders twittered "Bye-bye Brussels, the Netherlands will be next". The majority of the Dutch support an exit-referendum in the Netherlands.In comparison to the Netherlands, the situation in Spain is totally different with practically no anti-European tendencies. At Spain's south border thousands of workers fear that the Brexit could not only hinder them to work in the British territory of Gibraltar, but also that the trade relations with the UK could suffer.
