Europeans are turning against the EU
Brussels is paying the price for its disastrous handling of Covid.
Europeans are losing faith in the EU.
THREAD: 15 months into #COVID19 pandemic, Europeans’ trust in #EU has collapsed – even among mainstream voters in France, Germany & Italy. This is the stark result from a public opinion poll we commissioned (17,000 voters across 12 European countries) https://t.co/jqwd2dpcAH 1/

The EU’s Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR) has admitted that Brussels’ disastrous handling of the pandemic has severely damaged public trust.
New polling commissioned by the ECFR reveals that majorities in France, Italy, Spain and Austria believe that the EU project is ‘broken’. The ECFR has described the situation as a ‘crisis of confidence’.
Even in the usually Europhile Germany, 55 per cent believe that the EU isn’t working – a rise of 11 percentage points since before the pandemic.
The Covid crisis has exposed the EU’s fundamental flaws. No wonder Europeans are turning against it.
