Emmanuel Macron has sent shockwaves throughout Europe after he conceded that French voters would quit the EU if France held an in/out referendum on the Brussels-led bloc.
No other European Union country has risked putting membership of the bloc to a public vote since Britain surprised member-states by voting to leave the bloc in 2016,
However, speaking to Andrew Marr on the BBC, Mr Macron admitted that he would lose a French referendum on EU membership.
Asked about the Brexit vote, the candid president told Marr: “I am not the one to judge or comment on the decision of your people.
“But, my interpretation is that a lot of the losers of globalisation suddenly decided it was no more for them.”

France is a key member of the European Union, but it seems the European Union is far from united! Opponents of the E.U have always claimed that a project that aims to make one set of rules work for the very different views of many countries is a recipe for failure.
They could be right, and the bombshell from France could be a precursor of a time when the E U will be whittled down to a stronger ten nation conglomerate.
“And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet: but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. Rev 17:12
These ten kings, just as the EU is today, will not remain united for long, but will fracture and fall apart to make way for the Kingdom of God.
“And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided, but there shall be in it the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay…but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.” Dan 2:41,43
It will be interesting to see how long it takes for the member states of the EU to number ten. When that happens the prophetic end-time events portrayed in God’s Word will be on the horizon.
