Charles-Henri Gallois, a politician with the Popular Republican Union in France, has launched a new campaign, inspired by both the Brexit Party and Vote Leave. Mr Gallois wants France to “reprenons le controle”, which roughly translates to take back control, and leave the EU through a referendum. Brexit Party colours and fonts are used in his new campaign named Generation Frexit.
In an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, the prominent French eurosceptic said: “For me, the British Brexit campaign was incredible.
“It was a war for European nations to take back control.
“What we want to do is help the French secure a referendum on our country’s membership of the European Union – and to advocate for Frexit during this referendum.”
When asked whether he would add a threshold such as a supermajority requirement to avoid the deadlock that happened in Britain, Mr Gallois refused.
“It was the same in France in 2005.
“We voted against the European Constitution but they ignored our vote.
“They simply rebranded it the Lisbon Treaty.
“The EU doesn’t accept the result of elections if they don’t go the way they want them to go.”
Mrs May stepped down as Prime Minister on June 7 last year.
