GB News hosts Rosie Wright and Paul Hawkins slammed the French for cancelling a summit invitation to Home Secretary Priti Patel. France rescinded the invite after Boris Johnson publicly released a letter calling for France to take back migrants who reach the UK. Ms Wright challenged French National Assembly member Bruno Bonnell, as the GB News host claimed the decision will mean “more people are going to die”.
Mr Hawkins added that Boris Johnson’s letter was “no reason” for cancelling the summit invitation at such an urgent time.
Ms Wright said: “How do you feel about this? We are just hearing that these high-level talks that were supposed to be taking place between France and the UK have been cancelled.
“Because France is so unhappy with Boris Johnson’s letter and his suggestions.
“If that is the diplomatic playing field we have got, more people are going to die aren’t they?”

Mr Bonnell responded: “Diplomacy is about waiting at the table and discussing.
“There are some very good points in Boris Johnson’s proposals.
“But making this letter public before sitting with the French authority was probably not a very, very smart move.
“They usually sit down, negotiate together, and publish a common letter. That explains the tension right now.
“Let’s be a little patient and I’m sure together we can resolve the emergency of the issue.”

Mr Hawkins followed up: “But that’s no reason to cancel the meeting though, Bruno?
“Maybe, they shouldn’t have published the letter but that’s no reason to call off the meeting when this situation is so urgent.”
The French MP said: “There is a point in the negotiation when people take postures.
“Underneath this public information, the negotiations are probably still ongoing. I’m very lucid that both sides want to solve this situation.
“Everybody in France, in the UK, and the EU are aware we are talking about human lives.”
