Nigel Farage, 57, told viewers he believes the Danes would be the next brick out of Brussels’ wall. When asked by a GB News viewer during his Barrage the Farage slot which country he thought would leave the EU next, the former leader of UKIP and the Brexit Party said: “I think Denmark is the most likely one.”
Mr Brexit added: “They were reluctant to join, they didn’t join until we did in 1973.
“There is no reason for the Danes to stay a part of the EU.”
The former Brussels-bashing MEP claimed the reason why Denmark would be the first nation to join Britain in leaving the EU was that it was not further entangled with the bloc through membership of the single currency.
Mr Farage said: “I think for the countries that are in the Euro it is more difficult.
“Not impossible but more difficult.”
But the Brexiteer general went on to issue the EU with a warning about one long-standing member of the bloc.
“At some point though the Italians will rebel and they’ll leave and they will leave the Euro and the whole thing will meltdown,” he said.
Current polls suggest the two main anti-EU populist parties – Brothers of Italy and Lega – register the most support among Italian voters.
Unsurprisingly, Farage concluded by explaining why he hopes the EU collapses.
He said: “It can’t survive, it’s not right, it shouldn’t survive.”
“We want a Europe”, Farage continued, “of democratic nation-states, we want to be friendly with each other, trade with each other, not be run by – as I see them – the muppets in Brussels.”
In April 2020, a poll was released showing Danes were completely split on the question of EU membership.
Sentio’s poll suggested 39 percent of people in Denmark supported EU membership and 39 percent would prefer to form a Nordic union.

However, in February of this year, YouGov asked Danes how they would vote in a straight choice between remaining and leaving the economic bloc.
In this poll, Danes emphatically supported EU membership by 62 percent to 23 percent.
In contrast, YouGov found Britons still favoured Brexit and that France had the highest level of Eurosceptic support of any EU member state at 26 percent.
Italians were not interviewed in this opinion poll.
Despite being a founding member of the EU, a separate poll in 2020 showed support for Italy leaving the European Union had skyrocketed from just 26 percent in 2018 to 42 percent.
