Generation Frexit, taking inspiration from both the Vote Leave chief Mr Cummings and Brexit Party leader Mr Farage, has been launched in France in a bid to replicate Britain’s departure from the “toxic” political bloc. Charles-Henri Gallois has mixed with the Continent’s most inspirational eurosceptics to replicate the success of Britain’s EU referendum in 2016. Having met with Brexit Party chiefs, he decided to form a new movement with the motto “reprenons le controle”, which loosely translates into “take back control”.
The campaign’s logo is the same light blue adopted by Mr Farage’s Brexit Party ahead of the 2019 European Parliament elections.
Mr Gallois told Express.co.uk: “For me, the British Brexit campaign was incredible, and a war for European nations to take back control.
“Our inspiration is the Brexit Party, Nigel Farage, because we know that this movement, even against all odds, turned the referendum.
“What we want to do is help the French secure a referendum on our country’s membership of the European Union – and to advocate for Frexit during this referendum.”
Mr Gallois predicted the EU’s €750billion coronavirus bailout could finally help convince French voters the Brussels project is no longer a worthy club to participate in.
He claimed both Spain and Italy are set to be massive winners from the recovery fund while Paris is made to pay vast sums into the EU’s coffers.
He added: “The COVID-19 crisis shows us the European Union is toxic.
“You talk about the recovery fund for France but we pay to maintain the European Union and the euro currency.
“Emmanuel Macron has defended a European ideology that makes French people poorer and that will continue with this euro agreement, which is a nightmare.”
The Generation Frexit movement is working toward France’s presidential election in 2022.

Even if his party cannot win, Mr Gallois is prepared to enter into a coalition with fellow eurosceptics if they are prepared to hold an “in-out” referendum on France’s EU membership.
He said: “All the parties are not for Frexit so far but at least can agree on a referendum as a way to get our vote out of the EU.”
And Brexit Party members have leapt to support Mr Gallois in his conquest to take France out of the EU.

Former MEP Alexandra Phillips said: “Across Europe parties and movements explicitly calling to leave the EU are springing up in the wake of Brexit. No longer tolerating the broken promises of a looser relationships with Brussels from lazy leaders, our continental cousins want action and want it now, and are willing set up their own vehicles to do it, breaking away from establishment politics, just as we did in the Brexit Party.
“These are real grassroots movements and I say ‘Vive La Revolution!’ I know Charles-Henri really well, he’s an incredibly driven, intelligent and inspiring man destined for great things and can’t wait to join him on the campaign trail with other freedom fighters from the Brexit Party.
“Let’s hope democracy is the next thing to spread across Europe releasing our wonderful neighbours in France and a whole host of other nations, to also take back control of their own destinies!”
