Emmanuel Macron, the French President, has not held back with his views over Brexit and the damage it has inflicted on the UK.
He said that the EU withdrawal has “torn British society apart” and that it “can’t be delivered.”
Macron said: “People are starting to realise that all the figures they were given are entirely false, and what they were told could be done overnight in fact can’t be delivered.
“And in the end it’s going to cost them. In this context do you think that the referendum was a good thing?
“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.”
Yesterday it appeared that even the Queen spoke out on the matter. During a speech she said that people need to seek ‘common ground’ and ‘never lose sight of the bigger picture.’ Many people have taken her statements as a reference to the ongoing Brexit dilemma the UK faces.
France is continuing to target British business to lure them away from the UK post- Brexit. French finance minister Bruno Le Maire said the French president will continue to talk to British companies hoping they will decide to relocate to France.
