Over the past 12 months, Brexit Britain has signed lucrative trade deals with countries around the world – such as Australia and New Zealand. Late last year, oil giant Shell detailed plans to relocate its head office from the Netherlands to the UK in what was seen as a major nod to Brexit Britain, while car manufacturer Nissan will make a multi-billion investment into developing electric cars at its Sunderland plant.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) also predicted the UK economy will outperform the EU’s top economies and that of the Eurozone as a whole in both 2022 and 2023.
But pressure is ramping up against the EU with a group of Frexieers in France planning to film a documentary to explore whether Brexit has been the big disaster the Project Fear campaign has made it out to be.
If it goes ahead, the documentary will be produced by French eurosceptic magazines Front Populaire and Ruptures and will aim to tell “the true story of Brexit, against the tide of media ready-to-think”.
It will be “Brexit seen by the people” from “ordinary British people”, such as fishermen, fathers, mothers, police officers and nurses, to name a few.
They plan to start filming the documentary within a matter of weeks but that and its subsequent release is dependent on the project achieving its crowdfunding target of €50,000 (£41,700).
Generation Frexit President Charles-Henri-Gallois, who is involved in the project, told Express.co.uk: “This is an independent project, pro-democracy and sovereignty, so I felt that I needed to help it and to give the French people the true view of Brexit and not the bad narrative of Project Fear.
“Thanks to Brexit, you have a chosen legal immigration, you had the vaccination rollout before and you can eventually decide your own laws and make you own trade deals.
“It will of course help other exits as well and have a Europe based on international cooperation and not this supranational monster named EU.
“I hope that the French and Europeans on the continent will say: ‘It’s not that bad after all. Project Fear is wrong. Let’s take back control as well!’”
Mr Gallois further shot down the Project Fear campaign, claiming despite much effort from the campaign, it has never actually materialised.
He pointed to claims the UK would suffer a food shortage and supply chain crisis in the lead-up to Christmas – but were proven wrong when supermarkets were pictured full of festive products, including turkeys.
The Frexiteer reiterated the aim of the documentary will be to show what ~Brexit truly means – to take back control – adding it could inspire other EU member states to follow the same path as the UK.

He added: “You had during the referendum campaign, ‘Brexit the movie’, a great documentary about the benefits of Brexit.
“On the continent so far, the mainstream media are only selling a new project fear: Brexit is a disaster, and they will show you empty shelves.
“Of course, no word about the fact that you did have turkeys for Christmas.
“This is a joke. It’s not a serious point of view about post-Brexit but propaganda.
“The idea of this documentary is to show really what Brexit means: take back control.
“This documentary could be an inspiration on the continent to follow the same path.”
