Adieu Jean-Marie !
For me, the very good news of this first round presidential vote is Jean-Marie Le Pen leaving the French political scene after getting a vote of 10,58%. Ironically enough, his ideas have already been taken up by right wing Nicolas Sarkozy whose main priority, once elected and if elected will be to create a Ministry for Immigration and National Identity. I wonder what it means concretely. I also wonder whether Nicolas Sarkozy shouldn’t have been a boxer. He’s got so much energy to spend. He would do anything to win. On his program’s website, he promises an “irreproachable democracy”. Nicolas Sarkozy keeps promising a lot of things…He promised in 2004 that GDF (Gaz de France) would never be privatized. He had also promised security in the suburban housing estates and then suppressed the local police stations, in order to clean the suburbs with a “power hose” (like he said) I suppose ?
