European Politics

A couple big elections coming up. The Netherlands has theirs on Wednesday. Geert Wilders, one with more of a populist patrol the borders type, is holding a narrow lead over center right Mark Ruute who is the current PM.

Sounds like some discussions of breaking away from the EU has been debated in debates as well.

Marine LePen continues to poll well in France against the centrist candidate and ruling party Macron, but appears to be down by 1 percent right now.

This certainly should have the establishment in Europe a bit worried as more and more people are beginning to see them as irrelevant.

It will be interesting to see if the EU will stand with the rise of populism and more people rejecting the status quo over there right now.

Wilders lost.


To clarify, he didn't win the most seats, but his party did increase the number of seats they held, and the ruling party moved somewhat towards Wilders' positions.

In other words, he still lost.

Le Pen is a pretty confidant speaker and able to answer at a high political skill level .

I like her answers to a snotty Brit from BBC . She was well poised and strong in her convictions .

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Sfhc_e5P88

She was able to maneuver around a few land mines and deflect away from his contemptuous tone of the interview .

Her answers for getting loans from Russian banks and the influence of Russia was worth my gander into French politics which I am not well versed .
There was a man who had nothing to hide so he didn't care about privacy and I knew another who had nothing to say so he didn't care about free speech .

FYI for those who might be wondering why Le Pen is standing behind an Instant Teller - atm - means 'at the moment'.

And atm she is behind alot.

Clinton led Trump by 2-3 points
Remain led Leave by 1-2 points
Macron leads Le Pen by 26 points in runoff polls

Hope he doesn't jinx things - but Obama has joined the chorus of those moderates and liberals around the world encouraging French voters to back Macron in this weekend's French election.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/ ... tervention

If the latest polls are even remotely accurate - he should win easily over the far right wing candidate Le Pen - as the latest poll has him up by 26 points 63-37.

...the French will do the French thing and elect a morally corrupt leader...
There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark.

To stop the Putin supported ultra rightie nationalist like Le Pen from getting in? You bet they would. (Not that I know enough to say that 'morally corrupt' actually applies to Macron.) :-)
