The Berlin-France setup for the European Union died. In its place was the resurrection of the eons-old Berlin-Rome Axis. That’s the future of the European Union, without Britain most especially.
Didn’t we say that it will happen numerous times for the past years? The EU is being led by Germany, with Rome behind her as her "spiritual" guide. *cough* Rome *cough* Vatican *cough*
You don’t need prophets, all you need is a sound, open, and inquiring mind coupled with good analytical skills and a good grasp of history and politics, and you will know where we are headed today.
History repeats itself, and the modern world is blind and deaf to it.
The Holy Roman Empire is back! All Hail Emperor Charlemagne!! (/sarcasm)
