Macron letter BACKFIRES: French president accused of presenting 'self-serving' EU vision

Mr Macron was accused of presenting a “french wish list” for the EU by designing a future for the bloc that suits Paris’ “own image”, without much regard for its other members. In the memo, which was published in 24 languages, the French President called for new EU institutions, as well as a common defence strategy, to protect the bloc. But the radical proposals, designed as the starter pistol for Mr Macron’s European Parliament elections campaign, weren’t to the taste of the entire bloc.
