Blackie, sounds like France is having some kind’a election now also. Being closer physically to that than the rest of us, can you offer some insight on their riots, etc…?
Marine Le Pen’s National Rally is set to fall well short of an absolute majority in the French legislative election on Sunday (Monday AEST), according to projections from two polling companies.
France has been shaken by the prospect of the “far-right” taking control of the government after spending more than 50 years keeping it at bay. It’s forced several other parties that had been at each other’s throats to swallow their animosity and come up with a largely unified electoral front in order to see off the threat, etc…
Same as it is here: Millions fed up of a centrist government treating its people with contempt and not listening to their concerns. Le Pen's party got closer to getting into power than Farage's party but Farage's party is only four years old. Le Pen and Farage should work together.
Here’s a weird one. It seems in most news stories there’s political positions consistent with Left, Left of Center, Center, & FAR Right…like for example: “Some luxury boutiques along the Champs Elysees boulevard, including the Louis Vuitton store, barricaded windows and Darmanin said he was deploying 30,000 police amid concerns of violent protests should the far-right win.”
The above is from the other side of the Channel Tunnel. What do you actually call it ‘cuz I’m assuming “Chunnel” really isn’t a thing.

Political performance.

"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."

It’s not quite a French revolution underway, with elections that could put the “far” right in control of the country that prides itself on equality, liberty and brotherhood.

But with Marine Le Pen’s National Rally leading ahead of this Sunday's vote, France is facing a generational political shakeup — one that President Emmanuel Macron, a centrist, has warned could lead to “civil war.”

In the middle of this storm is a controversial Canadian warning French voters that their collective security and national identity are on the line due to unregulated mass migration.

Quebec native Mathieu Bock-Côté is an author, political columnist and turbocharged television host with France’s top-rated CNews — a station dubbed “Fox News à la française.”

His shows beat familiar drums: the intellectual bankruptcy of the left-wing; mainstream media bias; mass migration; Islam; and the loss of traditional French and European culture and identity.

Remember, though, that this is a Parliamentary Election and not a Presidential election, so Le Pen won't actually become President.

I forgot about that: Our new Home Secretary Yvette Cooper is the dopey mare who, in 2015, told the British public that we should house asylum seekers.

The new Deputy Prime Minister Angela Rayner is now Britain's second most powerful woman. Good thing she's such a mature stateswoman, right?

Starmer confirms Rwanda deportation plan 'dead'​


https://www.bbc.com/news/articles/cz9dn8erg3zo

He just rolled out the welcome matt to al the illegals

View attachment 23006

Prime Minister Keir Starmer's first policy is to scrap the Tories' Rwanda policy but has nothing to replace it with

More illegals in Calais are now saying they are prepared to come to the UK now it has a "friendlier" Government

However, the British people need to go through this. They need to see what life is going to be like under Starmer's Far Left Labour Party over the next few years to finally wake up.

No Grit left in the UK, they voted and sold out to invaders.

They can’t even win the World Cup. 😗

Get out of the UK 🇬🇧 while you can.

I'm not getting out of the UK. I'm becoming a member of Reform UK to help save it.

Reform UK are polling second amongst 16-17 year old boys showing that not all the youth are crazed Lefties. And the thing is these 16-17 year old boys will be eligible to vote in the 2029 election. Watch out, Labour! Reform are coming for you!

However, this support for Reform UK amongst young men annoys these three middle aged Karens ("toxic masculinity!")....

State of them...

Prime Minister Keir Starmer meets Anas Sarwar (nice Scottish name), the leader of Labour in the Scottish Parliament, in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle as he starts his tour of all four UK nations.

Labour are now the largest party in Scotland (37 MPs) after destroying the Scottish nationalists (SNP) in the election...
