Barnier's quick change of views
#1
Towards the E.U.
 
“We  (France) must regain our legal sovereignty in order to no longer be subject to the judgement of the ECJ or the ECHR.”  (Has nobody told him all member states are  already sovereign? Perhaps he doesn’t log on to WBAUnofficial)
 
He was “European of the year”  a title he won as a sop for his efforts trying to keep the U.K.  shackled to the EU during the Brexit negotiations.
The former Brussels diplomat then, even stated that EU countries are sovereign, despite the fact they are policed by the judgements of the ECJ.
 
He has now spoken of the need to “restore the authority of the state” 
 
He’s also said he would hold a referendum on whether to halt non-EU immigration for up to five years. (And I had it insisted that those lovely Europeans are all compassionate and inclusive and non racist.)


But he was always the 'trustworthy' honourable one during the negotiations!    Rolleyes Dodgy

Member of French equivalent of the Conservative Party making populist claims to win votes from the French version of UKIP in an election year.

Quelle Suprise

It just confirms he's the cnut most of us always considered he was.

More of your 'flexibility' in action.

But you're right, he's reaching out across the divide to the less nasty elements of the National Front, but will essentially enable a further term for Little Napolean.

No, all it confirms is that the Telegraph's journalistic integrity has gone down the toilet as they become a tabloid in broadsheet clothing.

This isn't new, Sarkozy (part of the same political party) has said the exact same things before in attempt to get votes. It's a standard tactic amongst the French right to demonise the EU as it is in the English right.
