A DANISH politician has said Denmark should leave the European Union and demanded the country should no longer be part of the EU “loser club”. MEP Morten Messerschmidt,

who represents the Danish People Party (DF) and a member of the European Parliament, suggested Denmark should exit the bloc within five years.He told Børsen that after the

Brexit dust has settled “we will know what the alternative to EU cooperation is”.  Mr Messerschmidt added: “Then we can ask the Danes if the alternative would not be more attractive than being in the loser club, which the EU is.”The British government and the

EU are negotiating how the UK will exit the union.  Mr Messerschmidt said it is “not unrealistic” that Denmark in five years could make a new trade deal with Britain, Norway, Switzerland and other countries who are not members of the EU. He wrote in a comment article: “As a non-euro, NATO and free-trade oriented country, we have a lot in common with the British.” Mr Messerschmidt’s comments follow those of fellow eurospectic Pernille Vermund who told Express.co.uk Brexit will pave the way for Denmark to follow.The New Right party said: “I hope Danes will get a referendum. I think many Danes are closely watching what is happening with Brexit.“If Theresa May, who I have great expectations for, can get good deals, I’m sure Danes will feel more secure in regards to a referendum on a membership we entered alongside Great Britain.”.
