Residents plot to kick out far right band ‘poisoning the atmosphere’ of quiet French village

“…The mayor claims they’re harmless but these people are neo-Nazis and I’m amazed that the authorities have not taken action against them for inciting racial hatred,” said Mr Canals, whose online blog, Le Panache Salvetois, has publicised their presence.

But not all villagers are opposed to them. Another resident, who requested anonymity, said: “You don’t know who’s for them and who’s against them. Marine Le Pen [the Front National leader] won 45 per cent of the vote here in the second round of the presidential election, and this is ruining friendships and poisoning the atmosphere in the village.”
