I would say yes, this was in the Telegraph just now:

Brexit is just the beginning
Jean-Luc Mélenchon, French firebrand leftist MEP, said that France would have voted to the leave the EU if asked. "This is the end of a world that begins with this Brexit," he told France Info radio.

"This teaches a lesson to the whole of Europe - either we change it or we leave it. This is the time for a plan B."

He described the current EU as "dead, killed by privileges for the cast of Eurocrats, by permanent lies, by the politics of flexibility...Everyone has had enough."

He said that already the "five president of the EU" had started "the process of drawing up a new (EU) treaty".

"Once again, they are doing so in hiding. Once again leaders are not talking. I fear a domino effect."

"The daily reality of Europe doesn't correspond at all to what the EU tried to start 30 years ago at least. Germany must stop ceaselessly telling other peoples what's best for them. France must have some willpower and make proposals. It's not that much to ask to live ones life working and being paid in a dignified way, receiving healthcare and education. All this is cast into question with the EU."
