Speaking to the Financial Times, French economy minister Emmanuel Macron has thrown a spanner into the British debate to leave or stay in the EU. Macron warns that, of course, France has no obligation to protect the British border by creating a barrier on French territory- in that sense border controls into Britain should be done on British territory, meaning Dover instead of Calais.
That would mean that the much criticized Jungle of Calais could be relocating across the channel. I wonder how the pro-Brexit crowd is going to play this one down? Any minute now I expect Nigel Farage to come out and say he’s going to Make France build a wall, and he’s going to make France pay for it too.
