Two senior members of the European Parliament (MEPs) have said that – whether or not the UK leaves the EU at the In-Out referendum on June 23 – the European Union must face major reforms, otherwise it could “gradually unravel”.

The UK is going to the polls Thursday (June 23) in the biggest test of public opinion on the EU for more than 40 years. At issues is growing Euroskepticism — which is not confined to Britain — and a desire to fee the UK of some of the bureaucracy of Brussels.

Hans van Baalen, the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe party president, wrote — in an opinion column on EUObserver:

“The UK is a crucial ally of the Netherlands in the EU and provides a counterweight against French-German dominance. Moreover, the Dutch and Brits are pushing in Brussels for the same agenda: eliminating unnecessary regulation, empowering national parliaments on European legislation (red card), completing the internal market and negotiating more free trade agreements to foster economic growth and jobs.
