‘Trying to save themselves by attacking us’ MEP warns of France & EU bullying UK on Brexit
A memo containing remarks by the City of London’s Brexit Envoy Jeremy Browne was leaked on 16 July.
Browne wrote it upon returning from Paris after meeting with banking chiefs, senior politicians and diplomats to discuss the future of the relationship between the UK and France.
“France sees Britain and the City of London as adversaries, not partners. EU countries who want friendly relationships are being marginalised.”
President Macron previously promised to promote several reforms such as the relaxation of the country’s rigid labour laws, a move seen as an attempt to lure to French businesses thinking of relocating to the continent following Brexit.
