Marine Le Pen on Brexit, Frexit and the future of Europe

France's far-right National Front (FN) leader, Marine Le Pen has said that if she is elected president she will ask the European Union for "four sovereignties back".

She told BBC HARDtalk's Stephen Sackur she wanted legislative, territorial, economic and monetary sovereignty all returned to France.

Ms Le Pen has previously described Britain's vote for Brexit as the most important event since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Great Britain had begun to bring down the "Brussels Wall", she said.

The Brexit vote had not been bad for the UK: "Great Britain has never had it so good in economic terms. Householders' confidence has never been so high, exports have never been so strong," she said.

Watch the interview in full on Monday 10 October 2016 on BBC World News and on the BBC News Channel and after on BBC iPlayer (UK only).
