Emmanuel Macron, who has about as much to do with the real Emmanuel as I do with a … well actually it defies comparison, has been the hard man against the UK coming out as the leader (cough) least in favour of granting any A50 extensions to the UK, although finally the group after four hours of closed discussion from which May and the media were all excluded did grant an extension but a lot shorter than we asked for, at the same time telling us they want to help us if they know what we want.
Why is Macron trying to push us into an impasse cordiale at this point?
Please tick all the reasons you think apply to motivate Macron’s behaviour.
