Germans are the biggest victim of Brexit – But gives Macron MORE power | World | News

will be the biggest victim of Britain leaving the European Union amid the huge dynamic shift, an expert has claimed. Marcus Schreiber, a game theory expert and CEO and Founding Partner of TWS Partners, also insisted that France would be the “big winner” in Brussels after . Speaking to, Mr Schreiber explained how the Germans will be put in a difficult position, once the UK has eventually left the EU.

He said: “The Germans are the biggest victims of a Brexit, not because of exports or cars, but because we needed always the British rationale within Europe because the Brits have a good business acumen, they have a good sense of reason while there is a kind of southern-Roman coalition which are more into spending, more government, more centralising and so on.

“Although the French and the Germans have been quite close leading Europe, this was always the big dispute.

“The Germans very often used the UK as a strong ally to kind of tame this kind of centralising, bigger state, more spending, less discipline, ‘let’s ignore rules if we don’t like it’ kind of attitude, which you see in the more southern, Latin countries.”

He added: “From a power-play perspective, for Macron, an exit of the UK is good, it will empower France as the leader of the southern-Roman countries, and it will weaken Germany.

“Given that Angela Merkel is weaker than she was 24-months ago, she has lost many discussions.

“The new European Commissioner, even though she is German, it was Macron’s idea, so he was leading recently.

“It has to do with the weakness of Merkel and it has to do with him, or France, gaining power with Britain leaving. Power-wise, France will be the big winner.”

During the interview, Mr Schreiber claimed Prime Minister Boris Johnson was doing everything “right” given his targets to get a better Brexit deal with the European Union.

Mr Johnson has taken a tough stance with the EU since taking over as Prime Minister – despite insisting he still wants to secure a deal with the EU.

“I do believe we now have to implement the British people’s decision. Except if the British people themselves decide something else.

“That’s why I was always pictured as the tough guy in the room on this Brexit issue. But I do endorse such a role.”

The Prime Minister is yet to meet EU leaders since taking over from Theresa May, but Mr Johnson will travel to Paris and Berlin next week to meet Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel for crunch Brexit talks.

The meeting will take place ahead of the G7 summit in Biarritz, with the clock counting down to Britain’s departure from the bloc on October 31.
