The UK’s Leave vote in the Brexit referendum was caused by misplaced “anger” and foreign disinformation, a raving mad Emmanuel Macron told French television and radio audiences at an event organised as part of his “grande debate,” on the public dissastisfaction with his government that has manifested itself in the Yellow Vest movement civil unrest. In a speech warning critics of his globalist, authoritarian regime in France to beware “people who manipulate you with miracle ideas”.
Hang on! Wasn’t Mad Mac elected on the strength of ‘miralcle ideas’ less than two years ago. A complete political novice with a track record of mediocrity in everything he had done, Macron was pushed to the fore as leader of a new party in French politics, after a stitch up by traditional conservative and socialist parties to stop the election of Marine Le Pen’s Rassemblement National, the main Eurosceptic party.
Speaking at a Town Hall meeting near Lyon after weeks of increasingly violent protests, the French president told unhappy citizens to “be aware of people who sell you dreams, that tell you all your anger can be solved by a referendum”, before dismissing Brexit as rubbish. Thus spake the man who promised he could solve all the problems of France and EU member states through a combination of higher taxes and more of the policies that had caused the problems.
“Take the British. They voted for Brexit,” Macron told the audience in Bourg-de-Peage of around 250 people, a number of whom were dressed in the yellow vests of the ‘gilet jaunes’ movement.
There were people who voted for Brexit, who did it in good faith, they were angry, and they thought their situation was impossible, because the system was unjust,” stated Macron, before claiming that UK citizens are now “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.
“There were entire buses going by saying you’re going to save — I can’t remember how much now — something like 36 billion pounds if you leave,” he said, in an attack on pro-independence campaigns, which he alleged also tricked the British into believing divorce from the EU that Brexit would “be done in a fortnight”.
“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,” asserted the French premier.
Macron’s tirade against Brexit came in response to a question from the audience about the citizens’ initiative referendums (RIC), the Yellow Vests movement’s demand for the right to hold Swiss-style referendums on policy proposals which gather more than 700,000 signatures.
“Difficult decisions should never be made by referendum,” stated the president, asserting the general public are not the “best-informed” on such issues and that, “in recent referendums, foreign powers greatly manipulated the vote”.
“We’re all surrounded by fake news. And a lot of people are persuaded, in good faith, that what they’re being told is true, when in fact it’s totally false. Because they read it on the internet,” he told the town hall meeting.
So all anyone could have learned from that pile of bollocks is that Mad Mad is just as arrogant, deluded and out of touch with voters as before his disastrous presidency began. Fore more proof of this we only have to look at the latest plan cooked up by Mad Mac and the equally unhinged Hausfrau — Volksfuher Merkel to integrate Germany and France as a first step towards forcing the other 25 EU member states to surrender their national sovereignty and become provinces of a federal superstate dominated by Germany and France.
France & Germany: “We Are Committed To The Emergence Of A European Army”

As my UK blog reported last week French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have signed a new Franco-German collaboration treaty (the French are the world’s greatest collaborators,) aimed at reinvigorating the European Union, which has been buffeted by the European debt crisis, mass migration and Brexit — as well as innumerable conflicting interests and priorities among its 28 member states.
France and Germany, the self-appointed guardians of European integration, have said that the new World Domination plan treaty is a response to the increasing support for nationalists and populists in EU member states such as Austria, Germany, Britain, France, Sweden, Italy, Spain, Hungary, Poland and other European countries who are resisting moves towards furthr political and cultural integration of member states, and even hoping to reverse progress towards European integration by reclaiming national sovereignty from the European Union and transferring those powers back to national capitals.
The continent wide rejection of EU authoritarianism now threatens to tear apart the European Union as Eurosceptic nationalists and Europhile globalists prepare to go head to head in elections for the European Parliament in late May 2019.
The “Aachen Treaty” [Traité d’Aix-la-Chapelle; Vertrag von Aachen], signed by Merkel and Macron on January 22 in the German city of Aachen, consists of 28 articles presented in seven chapters; both states commit to closer cooperation with the other in a series of policy areas. The first eight articles cover bilateral foreign and defense policy as well as the European Union, are the most ambitious and consequential items in the treaty:
Article 1: Both states to deepen their cooperation on European policy by “promoting an effective and strong common foreign and security policy and strengthening and deepening Economic and Monetary Union.”
Article 2: Both states to “consult each other regularly at all levels before the major European deadlines, seeking to establish common positions and to agree coordinated speeches by their ministers. They will coordinate on the transposition of European law into their national law.”
Article 3: Both states to “deepen their cooperation on foreign policy, defense, external and internal security and development while striving to strengthen Europe’s autonomous capacity for action.” The two states also pledge to “consult each other in order to define common positions on any important decision affecting their common interests and to act jointly in all cases where this is possible.”
Article 4: Both states to “increasingly converge their objectives and policies on security and defense…. They lend themselves to mutual assistance by all means at their disposal, including armed forces, in case of armed aggression against their territories.” They also “commit themselves to strengthening Europe’s capacity for action and to jointly invest to fill its capacity gaps, thus strengthening the European Union and the North Atlantic Alliance.” They “intend to promote the competitiveness and consolidation of the European defense industrial and technological base…they support the closest possible cooperation between their defense industries on the basis of mutual trust…both states will develop a common approach to arms exports with regard to joint projects. The two states will “establish the Franco-German Defense and Security Council as the political body to manage these reciprocal commitments. This Council will meet at the highest level at regular intervals.”
Article 5: Both states to “extend cooperation between their foreign affairs ministries, including their diplomatic and consular missions” and coordinate action at the United Nations and NATO.
Article 6: Both states to “further strengthen their bilateral cooperation in the fight against terrorism and organized crime, as well as their cooperation in the judiciary and in intelligence and police matters.”
Article 7: Both states to “establish an ever-closer partnership between Europe and Africa…with the aim of improving socio-economic prospects, sustainability, good governance and conflict prevention, crisis resolution, especially in the context of peacekeeping, and the management of post-conflict situations.”
Article 8: Both states to “cooperate closely in all organs of the United Nations.” They will “closely coordinate their positions, as part of a wider effort of consultation among the EU member states sitting on the UN Security Council and in accordance with the positions and interests of the European Union.” They will “do their utmost to achieve a unified position of the European Union in the appropriate organs of the United Nations.” The two states also “undertake to continue their efforts to reform the United Nations Security Council.” The admission of Germany as a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council “is a priority of Franco-German diplomacy.”
The remainder of the treaty pledges closer bilateral cooperation in the areas of artificial intelligence, climate change, cross-border issues, culture, economic affairs, education, energy, environment, health and sustainable development, among other issues.
When we look at it from the point of view of the weaker EU member states this is clearly a power grab by Germany (the master race?) and France (the collaborators,) aimed at gaining complete dominance of mainland Europe after Britain leaves. And that is why Britain has to leave and others will follow. It’s nothing to do with Mad Mac’s rabid imagingings about fake news and misinformation. Britain’s leave voters knew precisely what we were voting for. Our vote repudiated the idea that our proud, ancient nation could only survive as part of a bloc dominated by sausage scoffers and cheese eating surrender monkeys.
