A new campaign has been launched in France, inspired by both the Brexit Party and Vote Leave campaign, with its leader vowing to 'reprenons le controle' which roughly translates as take back control.
Charles-Henri Gallois, a politician with the Popular Republican Union in France, uses Brexit Party colours and fonts in his new campaign named Generation Frexit.
He has used an adaptation of Vote Leave's key messaging, which they hope will result in a referendum on the EU.
'For me, the British Brexit campaign was incredible, and a war for European nations to take back control,' Gallois told the Express.
'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.'
