President of Generation Frexit, a campaign dedicated to removing France from the European Union in the same way as Brexit, Charles-Henris Gallois argued the anti-EU movement will keep on growing. During an interview with Express.co.uk, Mr Gallois said the desire for Frexit will grow if France’s President Emmanuel Macron continues to give powers to the European Union. He insisted France would also receive bad social and economic reforms from the bloc, further pushing the Frexit movement.
Mr Gallois said: “I think the Frexit movement will definitely continue to grow.
“The longer we are in the EU the more problems we will have.
“You will see very bad and difficult social and economical reforms by the EU.
“I think staying in the EU as a country will only get worse definitely.
