Emmanuel Macron sparks furious backlash from Boris Johnson after branding him ‘clown’ | Politics | News

Speaking to French media the President was quoted as describing the UK as a “great country” being let down by its leader.

He told weekly satirical publication Le Canard Enchaine: “BoJo talks to me, at full speed, everything’s fine, we have grown-up discussions, and then he strikes us before or after in an inelegant way. It’s always the same circus.”

The President added: “It is very sad to see a great country, with which we could do so much, led by a clown.”

Responding this afternoon the Prime Minister’s official spokesman said he hadn’t seen the comments.

However, he added: “The important thing the public on both sides of the Channel want us to do is focus on how we avoid further loss of life.”

On November 24, 27 migrants drowned while trying to make the perilous journey across the Channel in small boats.

The tragedy came after more than 25,000 people made the treacherous crossing in 2021, three times last year’s total.
