Can French President Emmanuel Macron avert a 2022 disaster? | Conflict Zone

A bitter dispute about fishing rights and a surge of migrants crossing from France to Britain have put new strains on UK-French relations. Have both sides lost all sense of perspective? French MP Bruno Bonnell from Macron’s LREM party insists that the Anlgo-French dispute "has nothing to do with next year’s election," Speaking to Tim Sebastian from Paris, Bonnell said the controversy was about "the principle of a deal that was signed." Is Paris bent on making Britain pay for leaving the EU? Can French President Emmanuel Macron still turn things around before the 2022 elections?
