Macron compares anti-EU sentiment to Leprosy

Breaking News

President Macron has described the rise in anti-EU sentiment as "like leprosy", in an angry response to the growing success of political parties across the EU that are no longer prepared to accept every diktat from Germany, France and the EU.

Gerard Batten, the UKIP leader said: "In a medical and scientific first, the part of the European body politic that is dropping off is the healthy part, whilst the remainder remains sick to its core. The UK is and will be a happier and wealthier place once we finally leave, and if Brexit leads to a contagion of nation-state democracy across the continent this must be a very good thing for all the people's of Europe.
