“Countries that do not want more Europe, they will no longer touch the structural funds and therefore it is necessary that next spring we have this discussion on truth,” Macron said.
Without naming them, the French President referred implicitly to the Visegrad countries in central Europe that do not accept migrants.
“[I] love Europe when it gives me money, when it makes my people prosperous, when it allows my workers to make better a living in neighbouring countries,’ but at home, will not take a single migrant, not a single refugee,” Macron said.
“Countries that do not want more Frontex or solidarity [for Third World migrants]will leave Schengen. Countries that don’t want more Europe will no longer [get access to]structural funds,” he told journalists at a press conference in Austria.
Macron is playing with fire as several EU countries don’t want to take migrants and it’s not just central Europe. Bulgaria, Italy and even Croatia don’t agree with the EU’s migration policy as well.
Blackmailing countries into taking migrants is a very narrow road that could even lead to the abolishment of the EU. The “East-West divide” is a predecessor of what could be coming.
