AS the future of the European Union (EU) hangs in the balance in the wake of Brexit, right and left-wing leaders are tearing the bloc apart over what direction the other 27 member states should take.

While left-wing ministers form the early blueprints for a more federalist Europe, those leaders on the other side are battling against an EU with a common budget and much deeper political integration.

Calling for “national solutions where possible and European solutions where necessary”, Netherlands Prime Minister Mark Rutte said: “This is not a time to resort to extremist thinking or to get bogged down in ideological discussions about a superstate versus nation states.

“Our focus should be on practical cooperation that will lead to a stronger and better Europe.”

Rutte’s comments follow the Dutch leader’s call for the EU to give Britain time to gradually leave the 28-member bloc.

Britain’s historic vote to exit the EU has spread panic across the European club, with leaders fearing Brexit could spark more referendums on membership.

It is understood France has seen Britain’s exit from the EU as an opportunity to push for further integration among the remaining 27 members.
