  • Le Pen was hampered by the NF baggage. Had there been squeaky clean right wing candidate things may heve been very different. Macron is an example of that cleanliness: His party is only 13 months old. They and He are are not carrying baggage so the population that are feeling that the mainstream politicians are not listening had a fresh alternative.

    History is much like an Endless Waltz. The three beats of war, peace and revolution continue on forever.

  • I saw for the first time today that Madame Macron is 64 years old and he is only 39. She was his teacher when he was a teenager. She advises him, edits his stuff and no doubt tells him what to do.


    This suggests to me that Madame Macron is the true rival of le Pen but that the former rules from behind the throne. (Not the first time.)


    Who knows how this will turn out! :confused:
