‘Macron will deliver a weak France, exactly what Brussels & Berlin want’

‘Macron will deliver a weak France, exactly what Brussels & Berlin want’, by Gilbert Doctorow.

The fact that the whole French establishment — international capital, the banking and the stock markets — all rallied on the outcome of the election yesterday in France. That demonstrates that Macron is the establishment candidate, and he will deliver a very weak France, which is exactly what Brussels and Berlin want…

We’re talking about a high probability, which is acknowledged by all the capital markets, that Marine Le Pen will lose. The whole establishment — the right and left — is throwing its weight behind Macron. So it is a foregone conclusion that he will win, and nobody is sweating in Brussels …

The French people are being denied a genuine government. They are going to receive a non-entity president, just as Hollande was a non-entity president. They are going to receive a puppet to Berlin, and they are going to receive further sacrifices to their economy because they are incapable of carrying out the substantial reforms they need.
