THE European Union is facing oblivion and may not survive a fresh migrant influx this spring unless it takes radical action to crack down on stratospheric levels of economic migration immediately, Malta warned today.

Joseph Muscat, the prime minister of the tiny island which is on the frontline of Europe’s immigration crisis, blasted Brussels for its “inadequate” response to the chaos and said the bloc must finally get its act together before it is too late.

And he said the days of simply relying on Germany to host the millions of asylum seekers streaming into the bloc is over, insisting not even the EU’s most wealthy country can cope with another repeat of the last two years.

Mr Muscat made the remarks as he addressed MEPs at a plenary session of the European Parliament on the day that Malta officially assumes the six-month rotating presidency of the Brussels bloc.

He wistfully reminisced about his own time as a Brussels parliamentarian, which started some eight years ago, when he said there were “many smiles” in the chamber and “very few who would talk about the crisis of immigration”.

And he said he had “no doubt” that unless the EU takes radical action now, including rolling out migration pacts with north African countries to stem the flow of people crossing the Mediterranean, that eurosceptics will take charge of the bloc within a few years.

Mr Muscat also launched into a brutal tirade against eurocrats and other EU leaders, saying that Malta had been warning the bloc for years that its border controls were hopelessly inadequate only to be brushed aside and ignored.
