EX-Greek finance minister, who went head-to-head with the EU over his country’s debt collapse, has claimed that the Treaty of Rome anniversary is “nothing to celebrate”.

Yanis Varoufakis, the former finance minister of Greece, has claimed that the European Union is in an “advanced state of disintegration”.

In a withering tirade against the bloc, the leading economist said that crumbling European institution would crash out of existence in just six years.

EU leaders are gathering in Rome to mark the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome, the accord that spawned the European Union project.

Speaking about the anniversary of the founding document, Mr Varoufakis claimed that Angela Merkel and Jean-Claude Juncker “had nothing to celebrate”.
