Former Brexit Party MEP Alexandra Phillips confirmed a new alliance had been forged between her party with Gianluigi Paragone’s Italexit, Charles-Henri Gallois’ Generation Frexit and SOMOS España led by Luis Carlos Nogues. The group of eurosceptics hope their Eurexit Movement can help start a debate about the benefits of quitting the European Union across the bloc.

Mr Nogues told Express.co.uk: “We are just getting started”.

The left-wing Spanish politician said his party took Brexit as an “inspiration” to launch its long-sought campaign to take Spain out of the EU.

He said: “We consider Brexit as a kind of inspiration but it’s not the only inspiration.

“We have our own reasons to think that we have to leave the European Union as soon as possible.

“We also think that the European Union will be falling in a few decades, maybe sooner.

“But our responsibility and duty is to consult people and make them conscious.

“They need to know that we are under an anti-democratic Frankenstein and they stop our national economic growth.”

“We are not talking about telling the French or the Italians how they have to rule their country when they become independent from the European Union.

“We just want to fight together making the Eurexit Movement international.”

Generation Frexit founder Charles-Henri Gallois also told Express.co.uk last week he believed teaming up with parties across the bloc would open the door to more debates on the EU in France.

He said: “I’m for Frexit but this is not only a Frexit project.

“The conditions to the EU membership have changed a lot since the Maastricht Treaty as it would be quite normal, if you’re a democrat, as the conditions change to consult the people and ask if they still want to stay or not within in the European Union.

“We have this big platform, this big project about a referendum on Frexit just as the British had a referendum on Brexit.”

He added: “I think it’s in the interest of each individual country so we will continue to work with our Italian and other friends.”

Mr Nogues said parties in the Netherlands and Ireland are also getting involved.

Others before them have succeeded in the fight against EU political powers.

Matteo Salvini, Marine Le Pen and Viktor Orban ran a successful joint campaign ahead of the 2019 European elections.

Nigel Farage in the UK also saw his then-new party, Brexit Party, triumph with a whopping 29 seats in the European Parliament.
