BREITBART — A poll in Germany shows just under two-thirds of voters want the European Union (EU) to return responsibilities to national governments.

The results of the Emnid survey of 1,000 eligible voters, published today by German television news channel N24, show 62 per cent of respondents want EU member states to become more powerful.

In what is either a refusal to accept the situation, or a position informed by previous plebiscites in the EU, the survey also found that a third of Germans believe Brexit will never happen — rising to 45 per cent of respondents under the age of 30 — irrespective of the outcome of the UK’s referendum in June which called for that.
