Could a Brexit lead to a Frexit?

images A majority of French (53%) want a Frexit referendum like the one planned in the UK the 23 June 2016. This is one of the revelations of a survey conducted in early February on 8000 participants in six European countries (Germany, France, Poland, Ireland, Spain and Sweden).

Of all Europeans surveyed, the French are the most favourable upon the exit of the UK, but curiously, the most likely to ask for the same anti-immigrant measures David Cameron obtained for his country.

For almost half of the French, a “Brexit” would not be a disaster; they are 44% to think that “Britain should leave the EU ” whilst 27% of Germans and 19% of Spaniards share this view.

Moreover, the French, like the Swedes think that the British economy would benefit from a Brexit. 56% of Germans expect negative effects of a Brexit and only 27% of French think the same.

Brexit, an open door for exit referendums?

After all these issues related to the British referendum, the survey asked the Europeans if they wish to have such referendum to be held in their country. The French (53%) are the only ones to be willing to with 45% of Germans and 47% of Spaniards sharing this view.

Could France leave the EU?

In total, 45% of French would vote to stay in the EU, 33% would want to leave and 22% have no opinion. This is quite low compares with Germany (60% would stay), 66% for Poland and 68% for Spain.

France demonstrates a relative indifference to a possible Brexit and appears as the most Eurosceptic country in Europe after the British.

What do my people think about all this? Just a few comments here. Enjoy!

Les anglais veulent avoir l’Europe à leur botte ! Il serait temps que l’Europe sorte de sa torpeur et regarde la vérité en face. Nos politiques sont déjà tout émoustillés quand la couronne d’Angleterre daigne leur accorder un five-o’clock pour négocier puis leur imposer sa suzeraineté. Que ferons-nous quand ils nous obligeront la conduite à gauche ?

The English want Europe under their thumb It is time for Europe to emerge from its torpor and to face up the truth. Our politicians are already quite exhilarated when the English crown deigns to grant them a five-o’clock to negotiate and impose their suzerainty. What Next? They’ll require us to drive on the left side?

L’Europe est une escroquerie ! Après un référendum auquel les Français avaient répondu par la négative, les députés se sont crus autorisés à voter le contraire…Sur ces bases, il est évidemment très, difficile de faire confiance à cette institution. En outre, à moins d’être obtus, on voit bien que les exigences de l’UE conduisent les peuples à la misère… L’Union, agissant de manière dogmatique, protège le capital, pas les citoyens !  

Europe is a scam! After a referendum in which the French had said no, MP believed they were entitled to vote otherwise … On this basis, it is obviously very difficult to trust this institution. In addition, unless obtuse, it is clear that the EU requirements lead people to poverty… the Union, acting dogmatically, protects the capital, not the citizens!

Un référendum sur le maintien de la France ou sa sortie de l’UE serait la pire connerie populiste que puissent décider des politiques ! Toutes les frustrations actuelles se cristalliseraient dans un “non” à l’Europe alors que l’UE n’est qu’un bouc émissaire ! Détruire l’UE serait une catastrophe pour tous les européens, un retour aux vieux démons de l’histoire, et un affaiblissement de tous dans un monde de plus en plus instable et dangereux…

A referendum on the maintenance of France or its exit from the EU would be the worst populist bullshit that can decide politicians! All current frustrations will lead towards a “no” to Europe while the EU is only a scapegoat! Destroying the EU would be a disaster for all Europeans, a return to the old demons of history, and a weakening of all of us in a world increasingly unstable and dangerous …

La France est en pleine dépression… Ce n’est pas un président qu’il nous faudrait mais un psy!

France is in a deep depression … We don’t need a president but a shrink!

Nous sommes dans l’euro et si nous revenons en arrière, ce sera une chute du franc et du pouvoir d’achat sans précédent. Le seul choix crédible est d’aller vers une fédération des pays de l’euro, avec les mêmes lois sociales et fiscales pour tous.

We are in the euro and if we go back, it will be a drop of the Franc and the unprecedented decrease of the purchasing power. The only credible choice is to move towards a federation of countries, with the same social and tax laws for all.
