Marine Le Pen 'wants to leave the EU' says Renterghem

The French presidential candidate said she had no intention of taking France out of the EU but applauded the UK for freeing itself from the “Brussels strait-jacket”.

She added: “The British got rid of the Brussels bureaucracy, which they could never bear, to move to an ambitious concept of global Britain.”

France currently gives around £20billion to the EU budget, but Le Pen said she wants to “diminish it”.

Le Pen will face Emmanuel Macron in the second round of the presidential election next week.

Joe Biden is “eating his own words” over Brexit as his anti-Brexiteer gang now seems to be seeing the benefits, an expert has said.

Speaking about the UK’s role in supporting Ukraine, Nile Gardiner, former aide to Margaret Thatcher, said “Brexit Britain is leading on the world stage”, claiming the US is noticing “tremendous British leadership”. 

Biden has opposing Brexit throughout his time in office, taking a tough stance on the Northern Ireland Protocol previously. 

In 2020 he tweeted: “We can’t allow the Good Friday Agreement that brought peace to Northern Ireland to become a casualty of Brexit.

“Any trade deal between the US and UK must be contingent upon respect for the Agreement and preventing the return of a hard border. Period.”
