Half of French police ‘back Front National’ as Le Pen pledges to crackdown on street chaos

MARINE Le Pen has been handed a vote of confidence from French police forces as around half of them have voiced their support for the far-right party.

Marine Le Pen’s Front National has pledged to give power and resources back to French police in order to combat disorder unfolding across European streets.

French forces responded in kind to the promise, as a new poll revealed that half of the country’s police consider backing the party in this year’s presidential election.

In a bid to cast her party as one of ‘law and order’, Mrs Le Pen said the police would be given the resources they need and the respect they deserve.
