Having enjoyed many years travelling in France ( and having a second home there for a number of years ), I have decided, following Macron's outburst, not to renew French Passion, nor spend my money in France.
I will spend in England and Macron and his EU cronies will have to do without at least my money

Since 1964 Gosh that makes me feel old.
I'm inclined to agree, the words used against Britain by Macron are designed to scare & bully us.

Long enough
I'm getting too old to worry what Politicians say and do, at home or abroad, and with a bit of luck and decent health I will be sat on the Aires and France Passion sites this year in the knowledge that there will be fewer British Motorhome spoiling my view.
You stay in the UK and leave more room for me to spread out.
I didn't like Sarkozy either but it didn't stop me going to France.......

It's called cutting your nose off to spite your face! Forget the politicians as there will new ones along soon enough. Enjoy France!

The French people are not Macron, same as the we British are not May or Corbin.

Macron is trying hard to deflect his unpopularity and distract from his own political dilemmas.

He wont deter me from visiting France or any of Europe. I personally dont see this as a point of principle worth cutting my own nose off.

but we are all entitled to spend our hard earned where we chose and withdraw our support when we choose.

Good reason to go I reckon. Lovely country lovely people and it is basically free.
Macron is despised more by his people than the average Brexit voter !
I don't intend to spend any money in france from end of april to middle of july (ok i will go into a couple of campsites) either unless it is on wine and food. I have bought France Passion to assist me with this quest. Provence looks the same whether Macron is A knob or not.

I first Europe in the late 50s, as a passenger in my parents car, a 1959 Ford Anglia - the one with the reverse angled window. It was a brave and sparkling yellow and white. We'll show the Johnny foreigner our the quality of our English, err, American-ish cars. The passenger door had to be tied in to stop it flying open. It only had 4 speeds, and one of them went missing. The brakes went on a mountain pass. It was rubbish (the car) . But we loved it. Europe, that is. It was so vibrant. So different. It lived for the moment. So that magic has remained for me. I've been back many times. Later on I went with my new girl friend, later, wife. In my brand new red Austin-Healey Sprite. The brakes went on a Swiss mountain pass. It and I just survived. I took my own kids later on in a brand new Austin Allegro - the one with the square steering wheel. The suspension collapsed every 3,000 miles, and since we did 3,000 miles ... and of course, the brakes went , etc. It too was rubbish.

I missed out the European trips I did with my Velocette Viper. You had to throw all your weight on to the the kick starter, you'd crash down on the seat, and the kick starter would fail mid-way, or kick back. It's amazing I had any children. A wonderful example of Britlish engineering.

We now have no Truly British mass production cars. I wonder why. Still, let's make Britain great again.

I think this may be a bump.
