Nationalism sweeping the Western world, on the heels of Brexit and a Trump win, the populace is understanding, yes this can happen.

Wilders in leading in Holland, LePen may just be elected in France, Merkel appears to be on the way out in Germany.

Wow, what a changing political climate, about time.


Far-right candidate Ms Le Pen is now leading the latest polls by Elabe and published in Les Echos with up to 27 per cent of voting intentions in the first round, which she is set to win. She is followed on 23 per cent by independent candidate Emmanuel Macron – who is expected to win the presidential race in a head-to head with Ms Le Pen in a second round.

Marine LePen leads in polls

Merkel is lucky she has not been tarred and feathered...

It's a pendulum.

Government swung too far to the radical left, pendulum is now swinging back to the right but given the current climate, it's going to go far right.

This does not surprise me in the least. Look at what the left has turned Europe into. Now it is up to the right to try and fix it, but I think the damage is done in Europe. Probably no way to turn it around without war.

it`s never to late to fix a problem but it may require drastic measures to do it.

Part of the reason why Le Pen was popular was because of this
