Macron publishes platform for European elections calling for EU police state

Brexit is the symbol of Europe's crisis: Macron outlines vision for EU's future

"Europe, like peace, can never be taken for granted", Macron said, adding that "now is the time for a European renaissance" as he called on Europeans to resist "the temptation of isolation and division, I propose we build this renewal together around three ambitions: freedom, protection and progress".

Speaking at a press conference in Brussels with the Armenian prime minister, Nikol Pashinyan, the European council president said he agreed with the French president, Emmanuel Macron, who used an editorial in the Guardian and other newspapers to call on European countries to be alert to malign influences. He also urged for a swift start to the "European renaissance" that France's Emmanuel Macron had called for, Reuters reports. We can't sleepwalk to a diminished Europe.

"Never, since the Second World War, has Europe been as essential".

Nathalie Loiseau told BFM TV that "we can not be in the status quo, in conservatism, and we have never needed Europe as much as now".

"Who told the British the truth about their post-Brexit future?" wonders Macron "The withdrawal into nationalism goes nowhere". And he called for several improvements to help avoid a repetition, including harsher penalties for companies that fail to meet the EU's standards, and new European Union climate and environmental targets. Who spoke to them about losing access to the European market?

North Korea Reportedly Rebuilding Structures at Rocket Launch Area
In a statement, the two men described the move as part of a larger effort to make the Korean peninsula free from nuclear weapons. Both the launch pad and engine test stand were in about the same condition since last August, according to the 38 North report.

Alexander Gauland, the co-leader of the far-right opposition Alternative for Germany party, charged that Macron's "proposals for a "renewal" of the European Union would ultimately lead to yet more rules and bureaucracy and further limit the sovereignty of member states".

He advocated the creation of "a common border force and a European asylum office", as well as a "European Council for Internal Security" that in theory would oversee these new operations. "We need to reform our competition policy and reshape our trade policy with penalties or a ban in Europe on businesses that compromise our strategic interests and fundamental values such as environmental standards, data protection and fair payment of taxes".

He wants a blanket ban on foreign donations to political parties and a centralized oversight agency to protect elections.

An EU-wide minimum wage "appropriate to each country". "In this Europe, the United Kingdom will - I am sure - find its place".

Macron, who has made no secret of his plans to form a centrist, pro-Europe alliance to stave off populist and nationalist movements which have been gaining ground across the continent, also suggested reforming the 26-member Schengen area which allows free movement between members.
