THE EU is on the brink of collapse due to its failed neoliberal policies and the rise of anti-establishment movements worldwide, respected scholar Noam Chomsky has claimed.

Marine Le Pen has promised to hold a referendum on France’s place in the EU – similar to Brexit – and Chomsky has tipped the Front National leader to win the presidency in the upcoming election later this year.

Brexit has sparked a series of anti-establishment movements across the world in 2016, with Donald Trump’s Presidential election following and Le Pen’s election becoming a real possibility.

Mr Chomsky said: “I don’t think Germany would initiate it [the collapse of the EU] because they are beneficiaries of the union. If the union falls apart, I think it would be a tragic development.”

The 87-year-old said failed “neoliberal policies of the past generation” had spurred the rise of populism and right-wing movements around the world.

He added: “These programs were designed in such a way so that they would lead to stagnation and even decline for a large part, actually, majority of the population. They also severely undermined democracy, which is even more true in Europe than in the US.
