    Macron is still leading in the most recent polls (which are honestly, a bit outdated) for the next elections. Anyway, if it is not 2022 (MarineLePen), 2027 (MarionLePen) will be the beginning of the end... MarionLePen (or Marion Maréchal) is more photogenic and young, she will have more votes than her aunty.
    Welcome to the age of retired generals jerking off to the time they could go to world to not lose colonies and kill minorities siding with he far-right to "mAkE tHiS cOuNtRy GrEaT aGaIn".

    Well, about this. A whole lot of European intellectuals (Geographers, historians, economists and all) have been writing in their books in the last decade, stuff like, "if a charismatic leader doesn't emerge in France even though it is very unlikely, then the FrontNational (now Rassemblement National) will pass" and basically Europe will burn. And some thought that Macron could be this person, but he's nothing compared to a Napoleon or DeGaulle. We need someone that could put down all the far-right in Europe. Wether it's peacefully or brutally, at a certain point it will not matter

    If you get pushed to a point where you have no choice but to repress a push toward a regime change with force then you have probably already lost your grip on the country.

    I think they mean by charisma and leadership, not really by force, doubt "intellectuals" would call for a autocracy.
    Anyway, Macron is basically the typical, right-wing, neo-liberal guy we see pretty often in Western countries, at least from my impression, who has to compensate for the rise of parties even further right than him by matching their extremism in certain aspects, so instead of battling populism, he is trying to match it and gain back the votes he might have lost.

    Regional elections in France.

    The RN's votes (dipshit party) is shrinking everywhere. Can't be sure but the last few elections we've had seemed to be showing that Lepen's party is in decline. As for the presidential polls she's still up there along Macron.

    #CHATCONTROL: EU PARLIAMENT APPROVES MASS SURVEILLANCE OF PRIVATE COMMUNICATIONS:

    This is very very very bad. A friend of mine from Germany send me this and I'm shocked. I thought Europe was better than this, people's privacy should be respected.

    What's that from the pirate party ? It seems it didn't even make it to the news here or elsewhere... Anyway, we already have that kind of regulation here. It's something that was being done even before the legislation was passed, so... yeah as we were thinking back in 2015 : it's cool until the far-right passes. But everything is cool until they get elected.

    Eric Zemmour is on a tie with Marine LePen on a poll for the next presidential elections. It's a fuck up!

    Well, it's time to take a look at the immigration rules in the UK and/or Canada.

    Personally i probably wouldn't want to emigrate to a nation that has voted to fuck with immigrants no matter the cost to themselves.

    Well, you're Swedish so we'd probably accept you a little better than all the brown people are.

    I mean, you gave us IKEA.

    All the candidates for the 2022 French presidential elections are now known. Very quick presentation of some of them from center to far-right:
    -Macron, current president, despite the Gilet-Jaunes protests he can still do the splits ---- he's still favorite.
    -Valérie Pécresse, LesRépublicains (LR), wants to get the centrists back on her party.
    -LePen's daughter, everyone knows her...
    -Eric Zemmour, alias the Z (another Far-Right-winger), is the phenomenon of this campaign. He thinks Pétain wasn't that bad and all kinds of crap. He could very-well pass to the second round of the elections.

    You'll notice that I'm not even bothering presenting the left, aaaand that's because they don't stand a chance getting elected (for now).

    You can check out the latest polls on the wiki here.

    So during last lockdown the Torries made a law about NO PARTIES, then held a Christmas party, and then had a recorded press training about denying said party. Congrats, BoJo is reaching Bozo levels of scumbagery.
