After Brexit: The Struggle for Europe saw BBC Europe editor Katya Adler quiz EU chiefs and outstanding politicians on the future of the crumbling bloc.

Ms Adler said: “The powerbrokers of Europe face an unprecedented dare. For the EU this is a battle to survive. Brussels doesn’t exactly have a noted for moving fast but something will have to give.
“It could be that our governmental debate in Britain about Brexit turns out to be an irrelevance.
“Sooner or later the EU as we recognize it may no longer be there for us to leave.”
