In Shocking Interview, Macron Admits France Would Vote To Leave EU If Referendum Held

When Marine Le Pen lost last year's French presidential election to Emmanuel Macron in what appeared to be a landslide, the establishment breathed a sigh of relief because not only was the notorious Eurosceptic populist defeated, but also the wind appeared to be turning, and after a tumultuous 2016, 2017 started off with a bang for the unelected Eurocrats in Brussels. After all, the people had spoken and they wanted more Europe (and Euro), not less.

Or maybe not.

The French president sent shockwaves across Europe after he conceded that French voters would quit the EU if France held an in/out referendum on continued membership in the Brussels-led bloc. Not surprisingly no other EU country has risked putting membership of the bloc to a public vote since Britain shocked member-states by voting to leave the bloc in 2016, despite polls which showed virtually no possibility of such an outcome.

Macron admitting that he would lose a French EU membership referendum.

In an interview with BBC's Andrew Marr, Emmanuel Macron admitted that he would lose a French referendum on EU membership. Asked about the Brexit vote, the candid president told Marr:

"I am not the one to judge or comment on the decision of your people." But, he added "my interpretation is that a lot of the losers of globalisation suddenly decided it was no more for them."

Marr then pushed the French president, regarded by many as the EU's new leader, on whether Britain's decision was a one-off. Quoted by Express, the BBC journalist asked: "If France had had the same referendum, it might have had the same result?"

Macron responded: "Yes, probably, probably. Yes. In a similar context. But we have a very different context in France" although he said he would not make it easy: "I wouldn’t take any bet though - I would have fought very hard to win.

"My understanding is that middle classes and working classes and the oldest decided that the recent decades were not in their favor, and the adjustments made by the EU were not in their favour."

"I think the organization of EU went too far with freedom without cohesion, free markets without rules."

The French leader hit out at David Cameron for holding a referendum with a simple yes / no response on membership, instead of asking how to improve the situation.

Predictably, Twitter lit up after the interview was aired, with many questioning if the French leader had just admitted that he "does not listen to his own people" since he has refused to hold a referendum on the EU. For the sake of Europe's unelected establishment, president Macron and the "European recovery", one hopes we don't find out any time soon...

The globalist elite sold out their people in the name of a supposed longer term higher principle of a unitied planet ruled by a world government. The cost: draining the wealth and solvency of the populous of the western nations and transferring it mostly to the east to create middle classes in other countries.

What the fuck other reaction should they expect when the debt Ponzi-scheme used to mollify the western populations during this flim-flam wealth transfer inevitably occurs, as it has? I wouldn't be one damn bit surprised if EVERY EU country wouldn't vote for exit from the EU.

SUCH a tragic instant strategic mistake. 

The fag hath spoken, and also proveth that not only he is a fag, but also the idiotest of fags, with the weakest of characters.  

Which politician in his own mind would acknowledge defeat before the fight had even occurred? -Only a pawn with poor judgement and without any strategy or vision. Gentlemen, meet mister Macron, the puppet who never heard of another Chinese guy named Sun Tzu. Maybe he prefered studying some other intimate aspect of the profound Greek culture to quench his fist of knowledge...

If there still was any doubt about the stoopidity of Macron, let this one interview dissipate it. 

His handlers got to be pissed off by his unprofessional behavior now. Maybe they will sacrifice him. It was not too bright on their part to push such an inexperienced little sucker because the backfire will be enormous and the crowd is voracious

Le Pen is probably going to be elected prezz next time just because of this unique blunder. 

Morality: don't use an alternatively brilliant 39 year old homo tool still in his blister as a ragdoll prezz, or suffer the consequences of such poor choice

100x this.

worst part of it all is that within the next decade or 2, when merkel is long gone, the germans will start looking for someone to blame for their decaying country.


Germans never take responsibility for their actions. So they will have trains riding to the east again, filled with syrians this time.


Germans didn't kill 6.000.000 jews, the nazis did! In the mind of the average german they were victims of the nazis alongside the jews!

France is the EU!


Why are all but 1 of the major institutions in french speaking areas? Why are nearly half of the middle management team heads then french nationals? 


France speaks of Europe only when it benefits them. As a per capita comparable to Britain they actually pay in less than half of GB. 


France wanted Le EURO, to curtail the power of the DMark but their "cunning plan" went horribly wrong. Germany just turned the screw around so now the French are whinging about their own choices.

Macron is a very dangerous liar. There were, and are rules, WTO, EU, and many other rules. What happened is really simple, the rules were made to favor the west, the east and south, being of a different philosophical bent, played by those rules, understanding that they were in a marathon, and not a sprint.

They used the impulsiveness and myopia of the west against them, they took advantage of western delusions of grandeur to "steal" western lunch. They used western arrogance to provide the west their hang rope, basically, they took the west to the real school of life, known as the "true nature of reality". The western nations will, and must eat humility cake in gobs.

It's called KARMA 😎

Sacré bleu. Although this "free markets without rules" surely must be a joke. There's more rules, legislation and directives than ever before in the history in mankind and it's a customs union, not a free market.

He's trying to blame something other than the truth for the People's dissatisfaction and non-support of Globalization, with his Orwellian Speak (freedom without cohesion and free markets without rules). These people can't understand that Globalization only helps the very wealthy and all those wealthy families that have been running the West for centuries. 

They thought we could be lied to and brainwashed about open borders. Fuck all of them.

Macron is a master.  I read what he say, but watch what he does.  The guy is sharp.


The EU needs rules within the EU.  Trying to bring different people into a group is hard.  A nation needs economic, societal, and military rules.  The EU needs those three things to be followed by all EU nations or the EU will fall apart.


Macron understands this ... ; thus, it doesn't look good for EU as a nation.  If they can get it together, the EU can compete better against the USA and China.

Really? Oh my, we are blessed today with pleasant company!

PM Orban is a real man and the single European leader I respect at the present time. God bless Hungary, the only european country to have a Christian Constitution. If Hungary does not stand firm against the Muslim hordes, all of Europe will be lost.

Stand firm, Hungary. You are all that protects the west from being lost in a new dark age.

The peasants are dissatisfied.

Psychology 101. People don't vote for the status quo.

When I saw the wording of the Brexit referendum, it was obvious that the remain camp didn't stand a chance.

People aren't motivated to go to the polls just to affirm that nothing should change.

How someone who only got 24%  of the first round of votes can be said to have won in a landslide is beyond me. in the same first round 26% handed in spoiled ballots, so most people would have rather had no-one than this pedo victim.

He's seeing the writing on the wall by going to the middle in case the whole thing crashes down (globalization) and all these elites would suffer the same fate as Marie Antoinette.
