Charles-Henri Gallois has been nicknamed “Mr. Frexit ”for his views and support for France’s exit from the European Union. He said the ‘disaster’ of the EU’s COVID-19 vaccination program would only rally Eurosceptics who have gained support across Europe. Mr Gallois has been pushing for French presidential candidates to put a Brexit-style referendum on their manifestos, as has former Prime Minister David Cameron.
Speaking to Martin Daubney on the Unlocked media channel, Mr. Daubney asked the French politician: “Has the appetite for France to leave the European Union increased and if France will not be?” next, who do you think will be the next country to leave the country? The European Union after the United Kingdom? “
Mr Gallois replied: “So I think it will definitely be between France and Italy, the two countries are more interested in leaving the European currency and leaving the European Union.
“And in France which is increasing, we have all seen that COVID-19 (has been) a catastrophe and a disaster for the European leadership.
“On our side, we have launched a big platform which is a petition to call for ‘Frexit’ referendums, the same referendum you had in the UK.
“Basically the goal is to get more people and more signatures to pressure all presidential candidates to include the referendum in their manifestos.
“In the same way that (David) Cameron had to include his, we are pushing for it to be done.”
He revealed that he was working with the “Italexit Party” also known as No Europe for Italy.
Mario Draghi has been appointed Italian Prime Minister by the President and Sergio Mattarella as the country grapples with the pandemic.
Italian political parties cannot agree on how to spend £ 195 billion in EU funds as their government struggles to gain a foothold.
Mario Draghi was appointed Prime Minister because of his work during the euro crisis which the Italian president hopes will help him fix the government and the economy.
But the Italian Five Star Movement, an anti-establishment party, has said it will not support a government led by the former banker.
Mr Gallois believes that the current crisis in Italy and the failures of their vaccination program could prompt Euro-skeptics to seize power and unite the Italian government.
The French have teamed up with Italy’s Gianluigi Paragone to lead a pan-European movement aimed at forcing member states out of the European Union.
