Paris talks about its own Brexit

The leader of the French far-right National Front party, Marine Le Pen, said the British Brexit vote is a 'victory for freedom' and called for all countries to have referendums on their European Union membership.

"Victory for freedom! As I’ve asked for years, we need the same referendum in France and in the EU countries," Le Pen tweeted.

French far-right MP and Marine Le Pen’s niece, Marion Maréchal Le Pen, also called for a 'Frexit', or a French exit from the EU.

“From Brexit to Frexit, it is now time to import democracy into our country. The French should have the right to choose!” she posted on Twitter.
