NOW Denmark politicians call for referendum
The Danish People's Party (DPP) and the Red-Green Alliance (RGA) have renewed the demand for a vote on the Scandinavian nation’s membership of the Euro-bloc after the Leave camp’s success.
Leader of DPP, Kristian Thulesen Dahl, said Brussels had made its bed by underestimating the looming scepticism in Europe and now the Danish people must be given a chance to follow Britain out of the EU.
The right-wing politician said: “This shows that once against the EU completely underestimates people’s scepticism. The EU has made its bed.
“I also believe Danes should of course have a referendum on whether we want to follow Britain or stay in the EU.”
Mr Dalh’s call for a Danish referendum was echoed by the RGA, as its spokeswoman Pernille Skipper said she hoped the British people’s decision to leave would trigger a reform of the EU.
She said: “I hope Danish politicians take [Brexit] as a wake-up call. There is enormous scepticism among the population.
“Let us now have a referendum here as well.”
