French PM warns far-right could win 2017 vote

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls warned Sunday that the far-right Front National (FN) party could win the next presidential election in 2017, saying their policies were a “disaster” for the country.

“Do you not think that a FN which wins 25 percent in European elections and maybe 30 percent in local elections… cannot win the presidential election?” Valls said on French television channel iTele.

“Not in 2022, not in 2029, but in 2017,” he added.

Polls showed that the FN could win an “unprecedented” score in forthcoming local elections on March 22nd and 29th, Valls said.

According to an OpinionWay survey for Metronews and LCI published on Friday, the opposition right-wing UMP party would win 29 percent in the first round of the local elections, just ahead of the FN which was credited with 28 percent of the vote…

    Lol… When you’re on the verge of winning ab election you’re not “far right.” You’re what they call “mainstream.”

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Well Far-Right Mainstream.
      Kind of like a White-Hispanic.

      • Frau Katze

        Yep, it’s the same kind of thinking.

  • Martin B

    This Gaul has a lot of gall. The policy of importing millions of Muzz wasn’t a disaster for the country?

  • Ron MacDonald

    The silent majority has awakened.

    France, and Europe in general had better start getting Nationalists into power now, and start deporting Muslims and closing mosques, if they wait any longer, it’ll be too late, and there will be anti-Muslim pogroms, and Europe will burn. It may already be too late.

      I figure it is already too late. There is a big demographic change – the native Europeans ( North Americans as well) have too low a birthrate while muslim families have something like 8 children. Five, ten years from now you simply can’t produce enough voters to keep muslims from taking over.

        It is never too late for a civil war to retake a country that was stolen from you. Never give up. Cut welfare payments for people who are unemployable because of their attitude.

          Indeed. Didn’t Spain fight for something like 70 years to get rid of the Islamic scourge in the first millennium?

    I just hope if they do win they have a solid plan for all other policy areas. The first “far right” party that actually wins holds a huge burden for the rest of Europe’s “nationalist” parties. If they get in and actually run a decent government they could open the floodgates for the rest to do well. If however they do a poor job in the day-to-day running of the country, they might cause people in the other countries to shy away from taking a risk.

    If FN are lucky enough to win, they need to start putting left-wing “progressives” in jail for treason by the bus loads. Start putting journalists in jail for fraudulent reporting. No laws broken? No problem, MAKE laws that prevent foreign “asian” states from destroying the country.
