France is now a net contributor to the EU budget of £ 11.22 billion, a Frexit activist warned last night. He said it was time for France to “take back control”, channeling the British Brexit campaign to leave Brussels.
“We are going to pay 40 billion euros (£ 34.54) more than what we will receive for the famous stimulus package.
“Despite this, France still has to endure the diktat of Brussels for its economic policy!

“In every capital, in every government and parliament on our continent.
“In other words: Europe needs all of you, all of us. Europe will be what we want it to be.
“So let’s all get to work. ”
