Yesterday he again tweeted a photo of the cover of his 2005 book and commented: "15 years ago, I wrote the United States of Europe – asking Hamilton for a moment in European politics so that Europe it can be financed properly and it can be more than the sum of its parts. "In apparent reference to a proposal by France and Germany to create a £ 500 billion rescue fund to mitigate the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, he added: "Fortunately, the Macron-Merkel proposal will bring that historic leap forward ".
However, his comment was sparse by many fellow Twitter users.
Allie Jay said, "All I can say is that GOD is left to us."
Ernie Warrender added: "So much for the lies that we were constantly fed" Oh, it's just an economic community ".
Graham Topping commented: "Well, that went well @guyverhofstadt. You lost one of the biggest collaborators in the EU …
"I could also have called what it really was – the EUSSR … You can't have a Federal Europe … It didn't work for Russia …"
Another user added: "If there was ever a tweet that demonstrated why the British are better off, then it certainly is."
And another Twitter user simply replied to Belgian Mr Verhofstadt with a word: "NEXIT!"
Verhofstadt's book received Europe's first book award, organized by the EU-sponsored cultural association Esprit d & # 39; Europe and supported by Jacques Delors, former president of the European Commission.
Once again, he outlined his vision for Europe during a speech at the annual Liberal Democrats conference last year.
He said: "In the world order of tomorrow, the world order of tomorrow is not a world order based on states or countries, it is a world order based on empires, China is not a nation, it is a civilization".
Verhofstadt courted controversy at last year's Liberal Democratic Party conference, when he seemed to suggest that the EU was an "empire".
He said: "The world of tomorrow is a world of empires, in which we Europeans and you Britons can only defend your interests, your way of life, doing together in a European structure and in a European Union".
