For me who grew up in a neighbourhood where the Party ruled (i.e: Communist Party, there was never no other one here), his election was a sign of hope. It was only a few months before everyone realised he was a man for the financial powers. I remember that very well, and I was only seven years old at that time.
    I was wondering if the propped up corpse would still best the current crop of candidates....

    If we must go for a corpse let's take Leon Blum. His ghost would win.

    All right so... I guess last night's debate was quite heated, given that there was a lot of shouting going on.

    No TV, so all I heard is various people talking about it since then and it looks like here is the "winner": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippe_Poutou , for his well spirited attacks on Fillon and Le Pen. Even right-wingers appreciated his words. Legendary already.

    Breaking news!

    I'm going to vote in eastern France for the last time. Moving back to Brittany once and for all after ten years among the white thrash.

    I'm soon leaving a place where Front National is at a routine 40%. And dwelling a place where it will reach an historic high of 15% ten days away.

    Political fracture between west/southwestern France and the rest is getting upsetting.

    Time for hijack, Brits, the french Corbyn is on the march! Melenchon rules.

    France too? It seems that all countries nowadays enjoy the reputation of "a deeply divided nation".

    So you want us to annex Brittany, yes?

    Can do, just as soon as we finish one of these Aircraft carriers and get some tanks our of storage.

    Oh, and we're going to need a LOT of red wool serge.

    Already tried. Way too often during the last nine centuries, last time 20 years ago. When the Brits evacuated after the 2008 financial crises housing prices got back to a normal low. So please, please stay up north. Send some ladies.
    About the carrier, isn't it overkill, Brittany beeing less than 200 miles from Cornwall, or has the RAF fallen so low it can't even reach the next door?

    Right. The trap worked. Political fascism or economical fascism...?
    Probably I will abstain. Can't vote for Le Pen, but on the same token can't vote for Macron... Sad day...

    They are neither but wouldn't vote on either, but what's wrong with abstaining, I never vote. Did this time in Dutch elections though because of a very moderate libertarian-type newcommer.
