Controversial President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron has condemned Brexit, even claiming the referendum was “manipulated”, as he spoke to a crowd in Bourg-de-Peage.
The French President, extraordinarily has a record-low disapproval rating of 76% and he has reigned over a nation divided with anti-establishment protests taking place all over France most notably being the “Yellow-vest” protesters. Macron, claimed the United Kingdom’s upcoming withdrawal from the European Union has “torn society apart” and even said that Brexit “can’t be delivered”. The Euro-nationalist establishment are rallying against the UK’s right to self-determination.
Outlandish statements made by the pro-EU French President were picked up by BFM TV in France, he made the absurd claim: “Do not be fooled, in the last referendums foreign powers have manipulated the vote a lot. A referendum is sometimes also the door to the lie.
“I am going to give you an example with our British friends, people of good faith, who sometimes had the same anger as you, voted for the Brexit, they said ‘the source of all our troubles is Europe…they were told ‘you will save so much money, it will be done in 15 days’.
“Race summary: it’s been two years since it lasted, those who told them to vote Brexit, they pulled the flutes the 15 days after, they did not even want to govern, they left. Are discovering that the numbers and promises they were given are totally false, do you think that in this context, a referendum was a good thing?”
Macron, concluded by spouting more anti-Brexit rhetoric: “No, because it didn’t allow for an informed, transparent and calm debate. It’s torn a society apart, and it’s left it open to disinformation coming from abroad, or terrible manipulation.”
A French President should not be meddling in the political affairs of the United Kingdom, especially when his own country is ravaged by protests, disunity and disarray. The pro-EU establishment in Europe and Britain have utter contempt for the will of the British people and should be ignored.
