Mr Tertsch told Express.co.uk: “Left-handers in the EU are in a hurry because they know that Europe is changing.
“If you see the attitude of the Dutch, Austrians and Finns, they are slowly but surely adopting a position within the European Union which is very similar to the position of the UK for the past 10 years before resigning .
“If things don’t change, if the majority don’t understand a little about the real feelings of people in Europe, I think we will have more exits and not very far in time.
“We will have more exits and everyone will have to reconsider.
“There is no way to achieve a successful state of equilibrium with the plans they have for a great European state.
“It won’t happen because the national forces are really growing in the opposite direction.”
Anti-European sentiment has grown in the Netherlands in recent times, with Prime Minister Mark Rutte determined to avoid an exit from the Netherlands.

“Maybe Italy, the Netherlands, France – whatever country thinks, ‘Well, maybe that isn’t such a bad idea: the United States says we’ll have a lot of trade agreements. ‘”
A third, the Forum for Democracy, is also anti-EU and is gaining ground across the country.
Anti-EU sentiment has also grown significantly in Austria, with right-wing politicians calling for a referendum on EU membership.
Although Finland has been singled out as one of the countries that could leave the bloc by Mr Tertsch, a recent poll suggests support for Fixit is at its lowest.
France and Italy are among the other EU countries with increasingly strong positions against the bloc.
Charles-Henri Gallois, president of the Generation Frexit political campaign group, is convinced that the campaign to get France out of the bloc will be a success – in the event of a referendum on the issue.
At the start of the year, he said: “France can certainly be the next country to leave the EU and we are working on this with Generation Frexit.
“I think if we can get a referendum on Frexit, we will win it because we will have a real debate on the EU, which is not the case in other elections.”
