'Trying to save themselves by attacking us' MEP warns of France & EU bullying UK on Brexit

Speaking to RT UK the leader of the UKIP MEP delegation in Brussels responded to a leaked memo claiming France is attempting to prove itself to its EU allies by planning to attack the British economy.

Finch said the memo showed that the president of “perfidious France” Emmanuel Macron is trying to make a big name for himself with “his friends in the EU establishment” at the expense of the UK.

Calling the EU “bluff” for what it is, Finch claimed the EU “bluff” only proved that the British people had made the right decision when choosing to leave the European Union at the June 2016 referendum.

“The EU is desperately fighting to save itself and the point is it’s attacking the UK by doing so.”

“That’s even more of a reason for us to leave because obviously why would you want to be in a club that will wanna destroy you if you leave?”

Finch branded as “silly” and “childish” the two sides attempt to bluff each other at the negotiating table and appealed both sides to focus on agreeing on a sensible deal.

“The will of the British people is settled, and we will leave. It’s up to the EU to deal with the new reality.”

A memo containing remarks by the City of London’s Brexit Envoy Jeremy Browne was leaked on 16 July.

Browne wrote it upon returning from Paris after meeting with banking chiefs, senior politicians and diplomats to discuss the future of the relationship between the UK and France.

“France sees Britain and the City of London as adversaries, not partners. EU countries who want friendly relationships are being marginalised.”

President Macron previously promised to promote several reforms such as the relaxation of the country’s rigid labour laws, a move seen as an attempt to lure to French businesses thinking of relocating to the continent following Brexit.
