Unsurprisingly, the first round of the French elections has resulted in President Macron and Marine Le Pen going head-to-head in the second round.
Macron has lost a lot of his popularity now, and so it is a real possibility that Le Pen May scrape in to win.
I don’t know what this will mean for France, but she is no EU enthusiast. My concern is her extremist views. She intends to ban the burka for Muslim women, for example, which is bound to create resentment and give terrorist groups a renewed purpose for carrying out terrorist acts. And then what? Persecution of Muslims?
I’m not looking forward to having a fascist country next door to us.
