EMMANUEL Macron has backed a controversial move by Tory and Labour MPs to join forces to BLOCK Brexit.
The French President has endorsed a bid by Theresa May’s former No 10 policy chief to forge a new cross-party ‘coalition’ of MPs opposed to a ‘no-deal Brexit’.
Cuckservative Tory MP George Freeman says the UK faces a ‘Black Monday’ economic meltdown if, as an increasing number of politicians predict, it withdraws from the EU without an agreement in March.
Mr Macron has sent a letter of support to a ‘Big Tent’ political rally being hosted by Mr Freeman in Cambridge next month.
Mr Freeman, head of the Conservative Policy Forum, denies it is part of a plan to build a new centre party.
He says the aim is to produce ‘inspiring new ideas’ to ensure post-Brexit Britain is a success.
But he linked it to a stark warning that a ‘no-deal Brexit’ could lead to a repeat of the so called ‘Black Wednesday’ in 1992 when Britain crashed out of the EU’s Exchange Rate Mechanism, just another ploy to scare Brits who voted to Leave the EU.
