FRENCH party leader Marine Le Pen has predicted more countries are likely to follow Britain out of the EU, as she took aim at Brussels for its punishing approach to Brexit.

Marine Le Pen warned the EU faces “other countries leaving” the bloc if it refuses to change after Brexit. The French far-right leader added the EU has more to lose on Brexit than the UK. She remarked Europe still felt like a prison, as Ms Le Pen pointed to the “real contempt” shown from the Brussels elite towards the UK during the three years of negogiations.

The leader of National Rally, formerly the National Front, said the EU faces greater consequences than Britain from the “big bang” of Brexit.

Ms Le Pen told EuroNews: “Now there are options – the EU can understand that there is a big problem and stop moving towards failure.

“The EU could listen to the people and participate in the creation of this European alliance of nations that we would like to build.

“Or the EU will continue to not accept reality and other countries will leave the EU. It’s a certainty.”
