    Not surprised. They overplayed their hand and have ruined many countries with a central form of control. Considering France is one of the key controllers, this is a starling admission. Don't be surprised if his next challenger demands just that, a referendum.

    The French President said frustration at Brussels across the Channel could have boiled over to a Leave vote if they were offered a choice.

    He said he opposes offered the public an 'in / out' choice on their relationship with the bloc.

    Mr Macron also admitted that he is trying to use Brexit to lure businesses away from the City of London and to Paris.
