Marine Le Pen's rivals are falling like rotten fruit.

Pressure on French presidential candidate Francois Fillon to pull out of the election race intensified on Thursday as some lawmakers in his own camp urged him to abandon his scandal-tainted bid to save the conservatives from defeat.

The scandal, which erupted last week when a newspaper reported the 62-year-old ex-prime minister had paid his wife hundreds of thousands of euros for work she may not have done, has thrown Fillon's campaign off track.

Fillon denies wrongdoing, but opinion polls show support for Fillon eroding fast to the benefit of far right leader Marine Le Pen and a former investment banker, Emmanuel Macron, who is running as an independent.

"I think our candidate must stop," Alain Houpert, a conservative senator close to Fillon's former rival for the conservative ticket, Nicolas Sarkozy, told Public Senat television late on Wednesday.
In a new blow to Fillon's campaign, French investigators widened their probe to include two of his children, a source told Reuters.


And in what may prove a further damaging revelation, France 2 television said it would broadcast extracts of a 2007 interview of Fillon's Welsh-born wife Penelope telling British media that she had never worked as his assistant.

Quite incredible whats going on over in France, could Le Pen actually do it?

I hope so, it would rock the establishment, give France back some pride and being an end to the corruption and nasty European Union and return us back to the model we all agreed upon and that is a free trade arrangement.

Ah, ha. This is what I've been waiting for. Guys, head down the bookies and put a few quid on LePen. Asif has made his call and looks like a win for Madame LePen!
The French would be mad not to vote for Le Pen, the muslims are running riot in France, they need to be whipped back into line and not pandered to.

In fairness, the French never had it so good as under National Socialism. The trade unions loved Marshal Pétain and considered him a defender of the Workers. Pétain was a true French patriot who helped to liberate France from international Jewish finance. When Churchill called for France to destroy itself in a futile guerilla war against Germany, the Marshal wisely told the insane war criminal Churchill to go to hell. By doing so, Marshal Pétain saved the lives of millions of French workers and their families, and preserved France's ancient cities and towns from ruin. The following from Wikipedia will give the reader a taste of Churchill's criminal insanity - and the huge debt of gratitude that France owes to Marshal Pétain:

On 10 June, the government left Paris for Tours. Weygand, the Commander-in-Chief, now declared that "the fighting had become meaningless". He, Baudouin, and several members of the government were already set on an armistice. On 11 June, Churchill flew to the Château du Muguet, at Briar, near Orléans, where he put forward first his idea of a Breton redoubt, to which Weygand replied that it was just a "fantasy".[28] Churchill then said the French should consider "guerrilla warfare". Pétain then replied that it would mean the destruction of the country. Churchill then said the French should defend Paris and repeated Clemenceau's words "I will fight in front of Paris, in Paris, and behind Paris". To this, Churchill subsequently reported, Pétain replied quietly and with dignity that he had in those days a strategic reserve of sixty divisions; now, there was none. Making Paris into a ruin would not affect the final event. The following day, the cabinet met and Weygand again called for an armistice. He referred to the danger of military and civil disorder and the possibility of a Communist uprising in Paris. Pétain and Minister of Information Prouvost urged the Cabinet to hear Weygand out because "he was the only one really to know what was happening".


Churchill returned to France on the 13th. Paul Baudouin met his plane and immediately spoke to him of the hopelessness of further French resistance. Reynaud, then, put the cabinet's armistice proposals to Churchill, who replied that "whatever happened, we would level no reproaches against France". At that day's Cabinet meeting, Pétain read out a draft proposal to the Cabinet where he spoke of "the need to stay in France, to prepare a national revival, and to share the sufferings of our people. It is impossible for the Government to abandon French soil without emigrating, without deserting. The duty of the Government is, come what may, to remain in the country, or it could not longer be regarded as the government". Several ministers were still opposed to an armistice, and Weygand immediately lashed out at them for even leaving Paris. Like Pétain, he said he would never leave France.

Philippe Pétain - Wikipedia

In fact it was De Gaulle who deserted his post, while Marshal Pétain continued to serve his people in France. It is France's eternal shame that the great war hero and patriot Marshal Pétain died in prison. How many millions of French people today would not have been born without his honesty and bravery - leaving France even more in the grip of alien invaders than it is now.

Another of Marine's rivals is stewing in scandal as Emmanuel Macron is accused of cheating on his wife with ANOTHER MAN ohhhhhhhhhhh

France's tightly-contested presidential race sank deeper into smear and sleaze on Tuesday after centrist Emmanuel Macron was forced to deny an extramarital affair and as scandal continued to dog conservative Francois Fillon and his party.

A slump in support for Fillon after accusations that he used taxpayers' money to pay his wife for work she may not have done has propelled Macron into the top spot in opinion polls.

Late on Monday, Macron, a centrist former economy minister and ex-banker sought to kill rumors of a gay relationship outside his marriage to Brigitte Trogneux and push his campaign on.

Independent centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron is seen beating far-right leader Marine Le Pen in the second round of the French presidential election run-off, with Macron's score edging up, an Opinionway poll said on Tuesday.

Opinionway's daily poll of voting intentions said Le Pen would get the biggest score in round one of the election in April, with Le Pen obtaining 25 percent of votes, compared to 23 percent for Macron.
Francois Fillon, candidate for The Republicans right-wing party who has been hit by allegations concerning his wife's work for him, would get 20 percent but would be eliminated after the first round.

Front National are slightly to the Left of Sinn Fein on economic issues. On other things they aren't that different to pre-Ahern Fianna Fail. The fact that such a big deal is being made of them is what is sinister.

As much I disagree with you on this you are right- anyone in France not voting FN in this election doesn't deserve to vote at all.
