Now the French use the migrant card to get the British to remain in the EU.
France will ensure that the migrant camp "The Jungle" in Calais, moves to the UK if the British decide to exit the EU, warns the French Economy Minister, Emmanuel Macron.
- The day the relationship between us frays, the migrants will no longer remain in Calais, and financiers in London will not get equally good access to us.
The warning by the French economy minister Emmanuel Macron came in the British newspaper the Financial Times, in front of the British referendum on June 23, on whether to remain in the EU or not - "Brexit."
At the entrance to the tunnel under the British channel, outside the town of Calais, there are thousands of migrants who try to sneak over to England on trucks.
The French government is in the process of removing parts of the shabby migrant camp called "The Jungle", but no one believes the migrants, who at all costs want to go to England, will go away for that reason.
Now the UK has an agreement with France that the British can control their border on the French side of the channel. This will end in case the British choose Brexit, Macron makes clear.
According to the Financial Times, Prime Minister David Cameron has been criticized for scaremongering by the EU-skeptics in his own party, when he said earlier that "The Jungle" will move from the French city of Calais to the UK, if there is majority support for a withdrawal from the EU.
Now his statement is officially confirmed by France.
