Emmanuel Macron says United Kingdom could get 'special' deal with European Union after Brexit

Macon body language

"Our shared history is reflected in the loan of the Bayeux Tapestry to the United Kingdom in 2022, the first time it will be on British soil in more than 900 years", May said in a statement as she welcomed French President Emmanuel Macron on a visit to Britain.

But he warned that Britain would not have full access to the single market without accepting its rules.

He said the United Kingdom could not cherry-pick the elements it liked.

"You can not, by definition, have full access to the single market if you don't tick the boxes".

During his interview with Marr, Macron said it was important British politicians didn't mislead voters about being able to "cherry pick" a relationship with the EU.

He insisted that full access to the free market requires budget contributions and acceptance of principles such as freedom of movement.

As soon as you decide not to join these preconditions it's not full access, so it's something perhaps between this full access and a trade agreement.

Mr Macron's comments came during his first visit to the United Kingdom since becoming French president, where he held talks with Prime Minister Theresa May.

France will double its budget for overseas military operations, President Emmanuel Macron told officers and troops on Friday.

The idea of a single finance minister now appears to be a discussion for the future, and the suggestion that the euro zone's 500-billion-euro ESM rescue fund be turned into a European Monetary Fund to stabilise member states facing economic shocks still needs to be fleshed out.

"Germany and France can and should take the lead on many questions (related to Europe) and therefore I understand that France is waiting that we have a new government", said Merkel.

'It doesn't make sense, ' he told Marr.

He said: "It's a mistake when you just ask "yes" or "no", when you don't ask people how to improve the situation and explain how to improve it".

I do respect this vote, I do regret this vote, and I would love to welcome you again.

"It is vital that any measures taken by Governments to protect their borders, including those that form a part of this Treaty, do not prevent refugees being able to seek protection or reach loved ones in the United Kingdom through safe routes".

The visit was punctuated by a smiling selfie taken of Mr Macron and Mrs May, at an evening reception in the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Media captionBridge designer Ian Firth and engineering expert Dave Parker on whether a bridge is feasible.

"For sure you will have your own solution", the French leader said in an interview with the BBC's Andrew Marr to be aired Sunday.
