The EU’s ruling elite intend to take the bloc down

Summary of Disinformation

The spread of “Catalan Chain Reaction” to Belgium could give inspiration to Flanders to break off from Belgium. Belgium is a somewhat artificially created state and its dissolution would be the clearest sign yet that the EU’s ruling elite intend to take the bloc down the direction of manufactured fragmentation.

 

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, supporting repeated disinformation regarding European disintegration. There is no evidence that the EU's "ruling elite" would manufacture fragmentation. The European Union is an economic and political union between 28 European countries, it's based on the rule of law and governed by the principle of representative democracy, with citizens directly represented at Union level in the European Parliament and Member States represented in the European Council and the Council of the EU. europa.eu/european-union/about-eu/eu-in-brief_en
Belgium is a sovereign state and has been independent since 1830. www.belgium.be/en/about_belgium/country/history/belgium_from_1830
