Brexit stirs up Euroscepticism in the French right – EurActiv.com

EurActiv reports that nominally a supporter of the European project, Nicolas Sarkozy‘s Republican party has made increasingly frequent attacks on the European Commission (EC), which it accuses of “pushing out the UK and letting Turkey in”.

This is an amazing new development from the French Republican Party. Accusing the  EC of “pushing out the UK and letting Turkey in” is an amazing powerful rhetoric.

Personally, I would not be surprised with a major policy intervention from Germany‘s leader, Angela Merkel ahead of the Brexit vote. Although Merkel has often been slow to react, she might well reason that it will cost Germany less to intervene before the vote rather than pick up the damage if there’s a pro-Brexit vote.
