Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
France hates being taken for granted by the Brits.

Well, who does? No one in Dublin either, right?

One of the main reasons behind Macron's impatience with Brexit delays and the push to get it over with, one way or another, is due to election posturing: Macron fears a protracted Brexit will favor the Euro-skeptic parties at the EP elections next month. The whole kicking of the can down the road is also, in Macron's thinking, delaying other projects for the EU that he's been so eagerly pushing.

Anyway, Macron is not alone in the EU and in the end, he had to follow the majority.
