Ann Widdecombe slams the Macron, telling Boris to toughen up, ”We paid the millions and still the migrants came.”

Ann Widdecombe’s comments came as she criticised France for not doing enough to stop the flow of migrants across the English Channel.

Mrs Widdecombe told GB News on Thursday night that current Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer will have no influence on Mr Macron’s immigration talks.

She said: “Over the last 20 years, we have had no sensible options and the idea of Keir Starmer standing there and saying ‘We must cooperate with France’.

“We paid the millions and still the migrants came.

“Macron’s issue is not whether the PM is Conservative or Labour, it’s the fact the PM is British. Macron doesn’t like us.

“He likes us even less since Brexit. We have already tried cooperation, we have paid huge sums of money to France.”

She continued to praise the Tories, saying: “We must give credit to Priti Patel and give credit to the Cabinet.

“Once again, what we have seen here is the Government that really does solve issues, Boris cuts through the Brexit nonsense, he didn’t get the Brexit I wanted because of Northern Ireland.

“But at least he delivered some sort of Brexit, he delivered the most successful vaccination programme in the whole of Europe.”
