Pres. Emmanuel Macron has an ego the size of France. You would think that he has enough problems at home without wading in elsewhere, but this arrogant man just can't help himself.
"Citizens of Europe, I am addressing you because time is of the essence", is what he posted on Twitter. Monsieur le Président has spoken. He linked his tweet to an open letter published on the Élysée's website. In it he said:
"Never, since the Second World War, has Europe been as essential. Yet never has Europe been in so much danger.
"Brexit stands as the symbol of that. It symbolises the crisis of Europe, which has failed to respond to its peoples’ needs for protection from the major shocks of the modern world. It also symbolises the European trap. The trap is not being part of the European Union. The trap is in the lie and the irresponsibility that can destroy it. Who told the British people the truth about their post-Brexit future? Who spoke to them about losing access to the European market? Who mentioned the risks to peace in Ireland of restoring the former border? Nationalist retrenchment offers nothing; it is rejection without an alternative. And this trap threatens the whole of Europe: the anger mongers, backed by fake news, promise anything and everything".
He then goes on to argue, unsurprisingly, for more Europe; more integration; less democracy; more centralised control. It serves as a reminder as to why we were right to vote to Leave the EU. This pompous p**** thinks he has the answers as his fellow citizens continue to protest against his presidency. You couldn't make it up.
