In a truly astonishing development, hardline Tory Remainer MP Dominic Grieve is set to meet with figures from Emmanuel Macron’s French government figures including Europe Minister Nathalie Loiseau.

According to The Telegraph they will be discussing the extension of Article 50 and a potential second referendum. It is rumoured that the French want to see a massive delay to Berexit of close to two years.
Loiseau is to apparently meet Grieve in his parliamentary office with other advisers and officials. This is astonishing given Emmanuel Macron has repeatedly attacked Brexit and the UK is at the tail-end of a negotiation with the European Union.
Dominic Grieve will tomorrow hold a meeting with senior members of Emmanuel Macron's Govt to discuss extending A50 as path to 2nd referendum

Earlier this week, France’s President Macron laid into Brexit, saying: “The trap is not being part of the European Union. The trap is in the lie and the irresponsibility that can destroy it. Who told the British people the truth about their post-Brexit future?
“Who spoke to them about losing access to the European market? Who mentioned the risks to peace in Ireland of restoring the former border? Nationalist retrenchment offers nothing; it is rejection without an alternative. And this trap threatens the whole of Europe: the anger mongers, backed by fake news, promise anything and everything.”
The blatant attempt by hardline Remainers to undermine the UK’s negotiating position is now out there to see. It is quite incredible what is happening in Westminster right now. No wonder Brexiteers are increasingly upset with the behaviour of some politicians who now refuse to accept that the UK should leave the EU on 29th March, deal or No Deal.
