Apple cart politics

Seems the Establishment apple cart has been upset in France - are real people taking back control at last from those political mandarins that haunt those seats of power? 

Interesting times at home and across Europe.

The EU would worry if   Marine  La Pen , got voted in  Thumbs_Up

What she wants:

  • Negotiation with Brussels on a new EU, followed by a referendum
  • "Automatic" expulsion of illegal immigrants and legal immigration cut to 10,000 per year following an immediate total moratorium
  • "Extremist" mosques closed and priority to French nationals in social housing
  • Retirement age fixed at 60 and 35-hour week assured

Likely the other side will win as they are pro EU.

Clearly the money men agree as the value of shares has risen, not often they get it wrong.

The centrist candidate announced that he will embrace immigration. This will not go down well with the French people who were unhappy with Merkel for doing the same thing.

It's only a temporary move and symbolic. It's a move that could gain her more support.

Wasn't there a Mr Cameron who did that?  I wonder what became of him.

M. Macron has never held elected office ... just like a certain Mr Trump.
