Generation Frexit’s Charles-Henri Gallois savaged reports that France will give up its seat at the UN Security Council in a push for an EU army. The plan to hand France’s major political seat over to Brussels was revealed in interviews with The Telegraph and the French newspaper Le Figaro. This comes as French President Emmanuel Macron tries to pressure other member-states into backing his plans for an EU army.
Mr Gallois rebuked the plans, telling talkRADIO: “Normally a government works for its own people, for the French people, normally.
“That is why they are elected. But we have a euro-fanatic in charge of France.
“It’s more than a religion to them. The EU is a sect. It is a cult.
“And Macron is one of them, so you cannot expect anything from Macron.”

He continued: “There was an interview in Le Figaro today with someone from Macron’s party talking about that by 2030, we should have an EU army.
“They said that France could share its UN seat with the EU countries. It’s high treason!”
TalkRADIO host James Whale noted: “They want a country called Europe.”
The French Embassy last week denied France has any plans to vacate their seat on the Security Council, writing on Twitter: “Contrary to the Daily Telegraph’s assertions this morning, France has not proposed to give up its seat on the United Nations Security Council. It is France’s and will remain so.”
France’s recent pressure for an EU army comes after the country’s humiliation on the world stage.

In exchange for an EU army, France’s seat on the UN Security Council could be put “at the disposal of the European Union”.
