Marine Le Pen pledges to work with Britain in Brexit negotiations

Marine Le Pen pledges to work with Britain in Brexit negotiations

Le Pen is hoping the same populist momentum that brought Donald Trump to power and pushed a majority of British voters to back Brexit will help her defy the odds and the opinion polls to become French president.

Marine Le Pen, the National Front's candidate, secured 17.9 per cent of the vote, placing her in third place.

She claimed Macron was noted as being "a key sales person of globalisation - he is for everything, deregulation of everything, opening up the borders, mass immigration".

She said the prime minister would eventually be forced to meet with her if she wins the presidential election in a couple of months.

'I do not understand this discrepancy, this contradiction between what Theresa May stands for because she has chose to be the woman who will implement Brexit, and her meeting with Emmanuel Macron'.

French presidential front-runner Emmanuel Macron hailed the election defeat of far-right Dutch candidate Geert Wilders on Thursday as a win for "progressives", but there was no immediate reaction from his rival Marine Le Pen.

Speaking to Mr Farage in an interview to be broadcast by LBC radio, Ms Le Pen said Brexit "puts an end to the delirium of (European Commission president) Mr (Jean-Claude) Juncker when he said that there could be no democratic choice against European treaties".

Le Pen replied: "Well, yes, her judgement is not very good is it?" Immediately I would suspend the Schengen Agreement.

"There is no reason not to take the British decision in our stride and work with Great Britain in negotiations that will take place between two nations that have had longstanding trade relations for centuries". She also insisted that no British immigrants living in France would face persecution, though she said that French people would have priority when it came to jobs. 'What I can not stand in the behaviour of the European Union with regards to Great Britain is blackmail, constant threat'.

"When people live on our territory and are not criminals, they do not dispute our laws or our ways of living, our customs, our values". Clips of the meeting during Farage's hour-long nightly show showed the two rightwing leaders laughing and criticising the failure of the prime minister, Theresa May, to invite the FN leader to Downing Street.

" I see no reason why France and Great Britain should not have excellent relations".
