DISINFO: Brexit shows that 500 million Europeans said no to the United States of Europe


Brexit indicates that 500 million European citizens said no to the United States of Europe.


There is no such thing as "United States of Europe". The results of the Referendum of the United Kingdom's membership of the European Union indicate the balance of opinion of 33 million British voters who participated in the Referendum. While over 16 million voters chose to remain a member of the EU, 17 million voted against the UK's EU membership.
