In a spiteful Brexit move, France brags about the size of its ship to the UK Navy in Vietnam.
After the French Navy boasted about the size of its ship in Vietnam compared to the UK’s HMS Richmond, the French government was chastised for its “pathetic” diplomatic methods.
On Friday, a Royal Navy ship from the United Kingdom landed in Vietnam for a four-day tour. The official Twitter account for UK-Vietnam cooperation uploaded a photo of the HMS Richmond to commemorate its arrival and reaffirmed a sustained commitment to the relationship. “Welcome UK Royal Navy ship HMS Richmond to Vietnam!” they tweeted. She arrived in Cam Ranh today for a four-day visit, which coincides with the tenth anniversary of the UK-Vietnam defense cooperation.
“The UK’s commitment to a continuous and reliable presence in the Indo-Pacific is demonstrated by this visit.”
“Nice ship UK!” commented La France au Vietnam, France’s official Twitter equivalent account. However, ours appears to be little larger.
“It was also in Cam Ranh last spring.”
Generation Frexit leader Charles-Henry Gallois picked up on the angry campaign to discredit Brexit Britain’s military achievements.
The action was linked to French Minister of European Affairs Clement Beaune’s diplomatic efforts against the United Kingdom, according to the French politician.
“Diplomacy with Clément Beaune sauce,” Mr Gallois tweeted.
“It’s downright pitiful.”
One of Emmanuel Macron’s closest allies, Mr Beaune, has frequently launched public attacks on the United Kingdom and Britons’ decision to quit the EU.
Mr Beaune accused Boris Johnson of “not applying the agreement they have signed” in his latest Brexit attack.

“Predictions were erroneous throughout the Brexit crisis,” he stated last week in Nice.
“The British expected us to split up, but we have remained united.”
“What matters today is action solidarity.”
“We need to demonstrate to the British that we are prepared to take action if they do not follow through on the agreement they struck.”

Separately, a French official claimed that President Macron was pressuring European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen to back punitive measures that may essentially lock the UK out of the EU energy market.
“I hear there are – as you would expect – interactions between Paris and the Commission,” an EU official confirmed.
