France has boasted to City of London chiefs that it will use Brexit to
sabotage the British economy, according to a bombshell leaked memo.
The memo, sent to Ministers, says the French government and banking chiefs
are plotting to 'actively disrupt and destroy' the UK's multi-billion-pound
financial sector when Britain leaves the EU - even if France gains nothing.
The missive blames the 'giddy' effect of newly elected President Emmanuel
Macron for an 'assertive collective endeavour' to wreck the City, which is
worth £66 billion a year to the Treasury in tax receipts - around half of
the entire budget for NHS England.
