    So this what the National Assembly should look like after the second round next week

    Spoiler:


    If this isn't mother fucking hegemony, I don't know what that is. It seems the French are finally happy to have a president with a bit of charisma --last one not having any-- I guess people are proud of their so-called super-modern president now.




    For the record, this is what the National Assembly looks like today
    Spoiler:



    You can easily see that the yellow popped out of no fucking where and literally crushed the two establishment parties. I'm glad the SocialistParty and LesRépublicains are suffocating though, but I'm worried about the yellow hegemony.

    It's hard to say who really endorsed him totally tbh.
    -Some people have voted for him because they believe he must have a majority at the Parlement because if not, there was no point of electing him. They'd judge afterwards.
    -Some people are captivated by his charisma. They like the man overall. And in the end, people not liking Macron at all are pretty much rare. Usually, people like him as a person. The day after his election a film about him even aired on TV, depicting a very funny, smart, modern, young (youngest since Napoleon III) and eventually cute in a way. He was even shown making fun of himself. In other words, his communication team is very good.
    -Others agree with his social policies but don't with his economical policies. But in the end, he won because charisma, and will probably be elected again in 2022 because charisma is everything.

    Even among Lepen and Mélenchon's electorate, people like him as a person.

    Plus, standing against Trump, Poutine and Erdogan made him even more popular, considering that every other politicians are too afraid of these guys.


    Here are some scenes of this movie. I don't know if there are any subtitles in english though.
    Spoiler:

    Macron(to this team): yeah, so tell me what was good and wrong about the debate, I wanna know everything. btw, gimme some chocolate or something like that, wanna eat something
    Brigitte (his wife): No, I don't want you to eat this BS. You're gonna have dinner properly.
    Macron: Ohhhh, no. Well okay, I'll have uh, gimme some water then.


    Spoiler:

    Macron : I like the cordon-bleu there (some french food I don't know it is famous in the UK/US).
    Lady working there: It's with the menu for kids.
    Macron: No I'll take the salmon then.


    Spoiler:
    Macron: oh no shit
    Brigitte: What is it?
    Macron: Monaco (speaking football) won against l'OM (Marseille) again.
    Brigitte: damn, no one cares. Do you have the number of the bank account I gave you this morning?

    More loss of life that could have been prevented by the Tories. Theresa May's chief of staff 'sat on' report warning high-rise blocks like Grenfell Tower were vulnerable to fire.

    Was it just a month ago that the Tories seemed like unstoppable hellions?

    Did Trump cough a lot on his EU trip and infect Theresa May with his SideshowBobRake bacteria or what?


    Tory cabinet meeting a month ago

    May: Alright chaps, we have a cunning plan to increase our gains and bury Red Jeremy even further.

    *she breaks out into heavy coughing all of a sudden, she feels her brain reel, something is wrong*

    May: Ughh...um, where was I. So righto, I'm going to bugger off from as many debates and interviews as possible, and lets announce how we're going to ruin the lives of pensioners. Also look into risking peace in Northern Ireland as a desperate hail mary tactic if we ahahaha lose our majority. As if that will happened! Also someone get me well done steak with ketchup...I'm having a craving...

    Her campaign was stunningly incompetent. Though she still managed to get a share of the vote that was similar to Thatcher's at the height of her power. The "WWC" flip from Labour to Tory did continue on, but it was compensated for by record breaking millenial turnout.

    This requires a little context, after destroying all ways to produce food in the country, by expropriation or by denying raw materials needed to grow or process the foodstuffs, the government decided that the best way to feed the population was not to let the existing infrastructure take care of it and remove the destruction to grow new and "better" companies, but to "distribute" a weekly box or bag of random foodstuffs to whomever they please. If you were reported to be in a "unpatriotic activity" your box would go missing. The silver lining is that the watchers of this system are your neighbors so unless you are also an asshole, (or they are) you won't starve to death or have to overpay for food, even in this protest system.

    So, the company buys around 11$ boxes from mexico, transport them with the priority currier of 1,25 and then charges the government and the taxes of Venezuela for 40$. They not only destroyed the competition who evily dared to overmark 30%, you know for employees and earnings, they created a system where they input a minimum of effort and get 300% profit.

    And its not like they are overcharging 50% for the fancy pudding or the special free range chicken who died of happiness. This is basic rice and chickens, this is basic staple food that could be produced in the country for 8$, distributed for 10$ and obtain a profit of 5$. I don't know how much it cost for the final consumer, but those 25$ extra for each 15$ of food could go to anything else except the new corrupt elites.

    So the guy who's been freed by North-Korea is in a coma now. Probably (I mean, obviously) because he was beaten in prison.
    You can see on this video ---at 40 seconds before the end of it--- why he was sentenced to 15years of camp.
