The outspoken Vauxhall politician warned the bloc was being ripped apart by those pushing for an ever closer union and east European states who want less centralised control.

And she claimed the split showed Brexit was the right decision for the country, calling for Labour party chiefs to throw their weight behind it.

She said: “Surely Labour must understand that the EU 27 is already changing.

“Strong forces are moving it towards a centralised financial, economic and political entity while at the same time countries such as Poland are beginning to assert their own state rights.

“For the first time the EU can no longer take its future survival for granted.

“This may be hard for Remainers to accept – especially those who have built their careers on thriving in the comfortably rewarding embrace of the EU institutions.”

Ms Hoey, who has also accused her party of trying to sabotage Brexit, wrote in the Telegraph: “The Labour leadership now needs to listen to the voices of its core supporters outside London and commit to a fast, clean ‘Leave’.

“The people were asked and the answer was given. In a democracy that is enough.”

Under Jeremy Corbyn, the party has been accused of being so vague about its Brexit stance that no ones knows if it is for or against leaving the bloc.

Brexit comes at a time when key EU voices are calling for a united states of Europe.

French President Emmanuel Macron is keen for Brussels to have a joint budget, shared monetary policies and a combined defence force.

The vision chimes with top EU leaders including Jean-Claude Juncker who is keen for a tighter political union.

But some member states are holding out against the changes, particularly in eastern Europe.

The Visegrad Group, made up of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia has increasingly come into conflict with other western member states.

They are particularly hostile to Brussels’ open border policy and moves to create a two-speed EU.

Most recently, Romania has joined with Hungary and Poland in trying to control their countries’ judiciary, leading to heavy criticism from Brussels.
