SHORTPOD (7): WHY MARINE LE PEN WILL BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF FRANCE



A brief podcast by Alternative Right chief editor Colin Liddell, reporting on site matters and events in the news. After briefly mentioning problems with Disqus, the focus is on the French Presidential Election. Also available on YouTube.

2016, with Brexit and Trump, was a year of major upsets. So far 2017 has seen a reassertion of the status quo with Trump moving towards more mainstream GOP positions and the EU attempting to consolidate itself after last year's shock. But a victory for Marine Le Pen in France's Presidential election would once again throw the cat among the pigeons and stir the political pot.

In the past, all the other factions would typically unite against the Front National in the final round of French elections. In his analysis, Liddell gives reasons for why this may not be the case this time round, opening the way for a Le Pen victory and a reassertion of the French national spirit.

  1. Colin says it's LePen, it's LePen. After Trump and Brexit, I believe in the power of Colin's crystal ball. You should start doing horoscopes and fortune cookies. Cheers.

  2. I hope he's right. I'll check back here after the election to either praise him or rub salt in his wounds. Did he also predict Geert Wilders would win?

  3. Colin, it's not too late to adjust your prediction. Le Pen and Macron look like they'll both finish around 23% roughly. Le Pen did phenomenally well. But she'll need about another 28%. Where the hell is it going to come from? After 91% of the vote had been counted the candidates stood at MACRON 24%, LE PEN 22%, FILLON 19.7%, MÉLENCHON 19.5%, HAMMON 6%, DUPONT-AIGNAN 4.9%, LASSALLE 1.2%, POUTOU 1.1%, ASSELINEAU 0.9%, ARTHAUD 0.7%, CHEMINADE 0.2%. I can't see how you get LE PEN over 50%. Please explain the Arithmetic. Thanks.

  4. No, I stick to my predictions once made. It's a high risk prediction admittedly, but she is clearly much better equipped for the second round than her father in 2002. Low turnout or terrorism will favour her, plus I think the negative propaganda is now stretched extremely thinly. Macron could easily alienate enough Conservative and Socialist voters. Also, the fact that she is female could really alter the dynamic in interesting and volatile ways.

    1. Well Colin, this French scientist agrees with you http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/04/28/french-physicist-maths-le-pen-victory/ I don't though. I think the Establishment will move Heaven and Earth to make sure Macron wins.

    Sorry Colin I agreed with you on Brexit and Trump but I can't see Le Pen hitting 50%.

  7. Colin, the readership admire your sticking to that prediction, but it certainly appears you will soon have to apply salt and pepper to your hat!
