The rise of Front National: the French are fed up

After the second and final round of regional elections in France, it’s clear there are now only two parties in French politics: Front National and the other one. After all, the Socialist and Republican parties might as well be considered a single party, given their raison d’être now consists of being in opposition to FN.

In the first round last Sunday, Marine Le Pen’s FN won 28.5 per cent of the national vote, but it had highs of 40.3 per cent, 35 per cent and 41 per cent in the north, north-east and south-east regions. President Francois Hollande’s Socialist Party was devastated in these regions, averaging around 17 per cent.

Since the first round, there has been panic.

    The French election was stolen plain and simple. Under the French system it’s an easy thing to manipulate and control who wins. This is why the LIberals and NDP have made it job one to change our electoral system here in Canada so that only left wing parties can win. This is going to be the major battle that the media here won’t talk about.

      When it comes to the intent of the political left, never ascribe to stupidity that which is adequately explained by self-interest.
