2013-005 Mitterand



Mitterrand told his confidante Migouli when he was Premier of France.

“I will have the last word,” Mitterrand replied. “Her island, it’s me who will destroy it. Her island, I swear that soon it will no longer be one. I will take my revenge on the upstart English. I will tie England to Europe, despite its natural tendency for isolation. How? I will build a tunnel under the Channel. Yes. I will succeed where Napoleon III failed.”

Mitterand was an active member of the Vichy French administration co-operating with the German Nazis. When he realised the Germans were going to lose the war he quickly changed sides.
