The britnicos pro- Brexit are not the only ones who are making campaign by the departure of the United Kingdom of the European Union. Marine Le Pen , president of the National Front, has spent months praising the decision of David Cameron to hold a referendum, a step that promises to give if she were the president of France. Invited by Janice Atkinson, a former member of Ukip (Independence Party UK) and lifemate Le Pen in the Europe of Nations Group and Freedoms, the far-right promises to travel to the islands in the late May or early June to participate in the campaign by the Brexit, but the separatists do not want it all.
Gisela Stuart, who leads the campaign ‘Vote Leave’ has made Pblica a letter to the british minister Theresa May asking that the entry of Le Pen for his “extremist views” is prevented. Stuart recalls among others, the intervention of Le Pen in a party congress in Lyon in comparing Muslims praying in the street with Nazi occupation in France . “The urge to exercise its powers in immigration legislation to deny your admission in the country when [Le Pen] try visiting the UK,” claims Stuart in the letter.
So far, May has not wanted to get involved the possibility of vetoing the entrance to the leader of the French extreme right, but it seems that Stuart is not the only one to which this visit seems more than counterproductive for the interests of those seeking a way out of the EU.
the leader of Ukip, Nigel Farange, already Reject in its given form group common with Members of the FN in the European Parliament consider that “anti-Semitism is in the DNA” of francs party declared Sunday in an interview on Skynews who does not believe that an intervention of Le Pen was useful in the campaign pro-Brexit.
the extreme positions of the FN on issues such as immigration collide with the strategy of britnicos euroindependistas seeking to attract moderate voters, therefore, an intervention of Le Pen contribute to marginalize the campaign.
Le Pen knows that an output of UK EU will be a large number of new voters for his party. Since late March, the French praised several times the figure of David Cameron for holding this referendum to be held the near 23 June. “ I hope that the French also attend a similar occasion. I wish every people can express themselves on this issue,” he said last April 16 on a trip to Romanian.
In an interview Radio Classique last week, Le Pen questioned the principle advocated by the Europeanists about the need for “more Europe” is the correct option.
The FN has used the debate to campaign in France by promising a referendum “Frexit” Six months after the presidential election if she is a winner. As aims require Brussels’ more control at the borders, as well as in the budget, legislation and monetary sovereign “. “As Brussels resist a transmission of power Pars, the FN will make campaign by the ‘Frexit'” Asegur Le Pen. In addition, trusts that a way out of UK assume an example for other countries on the “improvement” which will mean, in your opinion, be outside the EU.
In any case, the French politicians know that all discussion on the continuation in the EU of any country increases the political rdito the National Front, despite requests from London in Brexit and Le Pen do not match. MEP of the European People’s Party, Constance Le Grip confirmed the fears of the French political class told Politico. “There said Le Grip- a deep concern about the way in which the FN attempts to use and manipulate the debate to get british as a new tool in their propaganda.”
In a survey by the University of Edinburgh published in early March, 53% of French people were in favor of a consultation on the continuation of the country in the European Union.
