Despite her sympathy for Farage's cause and het anti-EU rhetoric, one should not expect her to lead France out of the EU. Support for that is much smaller in France than the UK and France is much more integrated (EUR member, actual industrial integration with the EU industrial heartland, Germany very strong, etc). Anyway, Brexit is utter nonsense from an utilitarian prespective, except for some categories of Britons and only then under certain scenarios. For the UK population as a whole this is worse than Remaining and that view is held by all other EU governments. Another reason fro them to have no warm feelings towards the UK negotiators.
