Macron Humiliated and Defeated by Merkel Post-Brexit

ER Editor: Here are the main points from the video discussion (see below) of The Duran team:

  • The new agreement will be a treaty with the force of international law.
  • Macron: during EU negotiations, he managed to insert himself into those negotiations and played a very hard line with the British over fisheries (he got most of what he wanted) but many, including the Germans, felt he was taking this hardline to torpedo the entire negotiation, forcing the British into a no-deal outcome. Macron had closed channel ports with its immense commercial traffic over covid at a critical time during the negotiations. It was assumed in the UK to be a tactic to pressure the British. In fact, the Commission and Germans both leaned on him, making him open up the ports after 48 hours. Macron was then forced to agree to a deal that the British and Germans wanted.
  • So Macron took a very hard line: historically, he wanted the Brits out of the EU. But in the end, Merkel and the EU pulled the rug out from under him. He’s ended up looking very foolish, and now there are complaints about him in France for his actions. France could now be isolated while Macron looks devious and weak. Which he is.
  • How invested are the French in Brexit? Not very much. They have other things on their minds.
  • 2020 has been a bad year for Macron, especially economically, and this was yet another blow against his position. French people don’t want to see France isolated and overruled. They do feel that France should play a strong role. Macron has been trying to play the sovereigntist (despite being the globalist) this year. He’ll probably end up being a one-term president.
  • Macron’s problem is with Merkel, not Johnson. She overruled him on Turkey by not imposing such strong sanctions that Macron wanted. He’s tough on the talk but not on the action. De Gaulle was never frightened of being isolated and imposing vetoes. But Macron never does it, so he never looks as strong as he wants to appear. He loses with both nationalists and EU integrationists. “Macron has a Merkel problem” as well as a Macron problem!
  • The EU needs France, otherwise it would fail. So that should give a French president some leverage and be able to apply a veto. Macron talks like this but he never does it. He didn’t do it over Brexit or Turkey. In the end, he ends up looking weak. He will go the way of Sarkozy and Hollande – one-term presidents who were trapped by German policies. They were never prepared to break with Merkel.
