Is this weekend the EU DIES? Major votes in Italy and Austria could spark end of the bloc.
THE EUROPEAN UNION looks set to be shattered by a potential influx of Eurosceptic country leaders who refuse to toe the line of the Brussels elite.

This weekend Austria could be set to elect its first far-right leader while Italy could simultaneously lose its Europhile Prime Minister.
Both outcomes would be a massive blow to the Union as fear begins to spread around the the corridors of Brussels - both nations have put a vote to the people and could start the process of engineering themselves out of the EU.
The beleaguered EU boss Jean-Claude Juncker is watching his superstate dream slips away as the Brexit feeling from Britain spreads over the borders.
Terrified Mr Juncker admitted he knows Europeans have a “lack of love” for the Brussels club.

Regarding referenda on EU membership, I think it is not wise to organise this kind of debate
Mr Juncker said: “We can't deny or take away the people of Europe's right to express their views.
“Regarding referenda on EU membership, I think it is not wise to organise this kind of debate, not only because I might be concerned about the final result but because this will pile more controversy onto the huge number already present at the heart of the EU.”
And votes this weekend could be a crucial nail in the coffin.
Austria’s presidential election re-run will take place this weekend with voters heading to the polls on Sunday.
Hard right Norbert Hofer of the Freedom Party is up against former Green politician Alexander Van der Bellen and the stakes are high.
If Mr Hofer wins, he would be the first far-right head of state in the EU and it would cause uproar in the European Parliament.
Mr Hofer is a Eurosceptic and is expected to introduce tough anti-immigrant Freedom Party - one directly opposed to neighbouring Germany’s ‘open-door’ rhetoric.

Speaking about Mrs Merkel’s choice to invite tens of thousands of Syrians to Europe, Mr Hofer said: "I say we're not managing. It was a major mistake that has inflicted massive costs on the entire EU, as well as Austria and taxpayers."
Political shocks in Austria reflect unrest across the bloc from voters who have been made furious by the handling of the migrant crisis.
Scenes aired across global media showed thousands of migrants filling the streets, clashes with police and later serious integration issues, culminating in mass sex attacks in Germany.
And voters aired their frustration at the polls.
In April, the Social Democrats and the conservative People's Party of Austria, were knocked out of the race, for the first time since 1945.
Outsiders Mr Hofer and Alexander Van der Bellen were left standing and the liberal won the run off in May.
However, the votes had to be re-cast after a problem with the postal system and a later issue with the glue on ballot papers pushed the vote back from October to December.
At the same time Italians will go to the polls to vote on whether or not they want the government to streamline its senate - or second house - and curb their decision making powers.
