President of Generation Frexit, a campaign dedicated to removing France from the European Union in the same way as Brexit, Charles-Henris Gallois issued a warning to Emmanuel Macron. During an interview with Express.co.uk, Mr Gallois insisted the French people were making their annoyances known in polling. He claimed they wanted more sovereignty back in France, were frustrated with the EU’s handling coronavirus and rules the EU has over nations.
Mr Gallois said: “I think if you look at the polls on this specific subject.
“When you look at the details you can see that the French want to get back more of their sovereignty.

“Regarding the hospitals, the European Union is constantly asking countries to reduce their health spending so we lost some things that would have been very useful during such a crisis.”
Mr Gallois also argued unless France begins addressing these frustrations, the Frexit movement will grow.
He also insisted France would also receive bad social and economic reforms from the bloc, further pushing the Frexit movement.
