Macron allegedly told May that the deal she negotiated was “the best possible,” according to a spokesperson for the French presidency.
“The president reaffirmed his support for the deal reached on Nov. 25, which is the best possible agreement for all sides,” according to an official statement by the Elysee Palace.
Macron is struggling to give May substantial backing as he has a very volatile domestic situation on his hands. This is the eighth straight week of protests in France over fuel price hikes, austerity measures, and overall discontent with his management of government policy.
“We’ve made it clear it’s a question of when not if we do a vote of no confidence in the government, and obviously we do (it) at a time when their confidence is the lowest ever, which I suspect will be after they’ve lost the vote,” said Corbyn.
To add to May’s woes, there have also been calls for a second referendum on Brexit from many parts of society. This move would open the road for a test of different agreement options in parliament.
