The president of the Citizen Front, a right-wing Eurosceptic rty, issued the warning to Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission after branding his say of the Union speech to MEPs at the European rliament in Strasbourg, France, “insipid”.

Squeezing his “regret” at the historical Brexit vote, Mr Juncker insisted the EU is “not at risk”.

“Far too time again national interests are brought to the fore. We shouldn’t misunderstand this European integration obligation not bow to the interests of the nation-state.

“Europe cannot become a colourless melting pot.”

“This is basically verging on like a funeral for the European Union, but perhaps we should admit there was a extraordinarily good point on humour where you said you were the hero of wrestling fiscal optimisation for multinationals.

“But really, you haven’t been ying publicity to the ambition of people in the European Union to reestablish and retake their sway and their independence.

“Brexit has really broken a taboo. The Brits should prefer to shown us that you can leave the European Union and you can come out better.

“The catastrophic visions were honest a lie. The UK is doing quite well, the shock that you wanted to see has now turned into upon, everybody thought there was going to be apocalypse falling on the UK but that didn’t find.


“You’ve shown a disdain for the referendum, so what are you protecting us from? Openness? Democracy?

“It is time to move on and I think that people need a stand out for the future. Let’s be democrats, finally, and let the people decide.”

As she received praise from other colleagues of the European rliament, she was asked whether she will cam ign for “Frexit”.

Ms Le Pen reciprocated: “Well, with respect to democracy I think a referendum is the best persistence for us.

“Over the st four years, I have said that I desire be organising a referendum so French people can express themselves on the issue of France make the European Union.”

Following her speech Scottish MEP Alyn Smith tweeted: “Nigel Farage chased by Marine Le Pen: ‘The British prove its possible to leave the EU and do better.’ We live in treacherous times.”

And Labour’s Richard Corbett added: “Very unpleasant view in European rliament debate this morning as UKIP MEPs express approval French far-right leader Marine Le Pen.”

Europscepticism has been on the rise in France in up to date years, with a poll carried out just before the Brexit vote illustrating that 61 per cent of people viewed Brussels unfavourably.

In exacting it has been stoked by the migrant crisis and a number of Islamist terror mugs on French soil linked to EU free movement rules, including the horrific ris annihilating.

Recent polls have placed Ms Le Pen as one of the front-runners for next year’s presidential foot-race, although she faces a cked contest which will also subsume former leader Nicolas Sarkozy.
