Of course she won't, but who is better? Find a single French politician who's willing to prioritize the well-being of French citizens over daffy ideas like AGW or financial interests....

(in terms of AGW whatever France does is immaterial next to the specter of China, Africa and India fully industrializing so why d1ck around with this stupid diesel tax unless it's to impoverish citizens?)

Macron is definitely better than Le Pen! And I don't even like the Frenchies....

France is also a deeply inefficient state, highly centralized where Paris sits above all and the rest of the country is neglected...with a welfare system the country can't afford anymore, with an elite which grooms their own children and where it's near impossible to get into from the outside, with an overboarding bureaucracy...

Macron is trying to change some of the worst...and these protestors really think LePen will do better? Or do nothing and let the state just rot some more?

I can't help compare the situation to Germany before it's reforms. We too had been the "sick man of Europe"...these reforms had been painful for many but in the end Germany was much better off.

Macron only tries to reform France...long overdue reforms...these protestors have no sense! LePen for sure won't have the guts for the needed reforms. France will suffer for it!

Maybe for Germany.... for French citizens? Who knows?

No, he really isn't. At the same time that retirement ages have been raised pensions for politicians have been increased... (my French colleague, generally progressive and cosmopolitan had a bunch of other examples of how his rhetoric translates into terrible policies for citizens but I forget the specifics.

Yeah....a reformed, functioning France...surely only a late victory for Le Boche! Hitler would be proud! *eye roll*

At the same time that retirement ages have been raised pensions for politicians have been increased...

Two totally different kind of shoes...pensions of politicians get a raise when it's their turn to be fit to the inflation...like salaries are raised regularly. You know how it goes.

To raise the retirement age is needed to keep the pensions for everybody financially feasable in the first place. People get much older now, meaning they get to enjoy that money much longer, meaning the tax payer have to pay them much longer. As at the same time the demographic development means that less youth have to pay for more and more pensioniers. Raising the retirment age is the only way out.

That is a prime example for an economically sound, much needed but painful reform. Who really cares about his country and its longterm survival has to bite this bullet. But of course populists won't do that, won't they...they wouldn't be so popular then anymore!

Yeah....a reformed, functioning France...

It's not functioning very well now.... and Macron is totally absent (bravely hiding in the palace).

It's called realignment or paradigm shift (massive political shake ups that happen about every 30-40 years, the previous one might be called Social Democracy (the New Deal in the US) replaced by the neoliberal consensus (fully in place by 1980). The world is due for a change, you can get ahead of it or try to keep the sea from rolling in (as Macron is doing).

No it isn't. It hasn't for years. But Macron had started some of these much needed reforms to heal the country. And these idiots are fighting him...

The world is due for a change, you can get ahead of it

Well, Macron does his best to bring a change to the country...now look what it got him!

at the Ptolemy Map from nearly 2000 years back.

yeah, some Greek who never was there made a map basing it on a hearsay of some unknown people who might be or not right.

An irrefutable claim that in historical times from 600 onward to about the 1800' all those areas including what was DDR were inhabited by Slavic tribes.
Anyhow that kind of argument 'we were here first' had been developed by German 'historians' to justify annexation of a part of the land of the Poland Crown.

So, this kind of talk is nothing something I would say. Only as a statement of a fact. We stablish facts and that is. Ptolemy map is hardly be taken at its face value and used as an irrefutable fact.

Macron

Macron is a fraud. He had been put in power by the French banking elites as last ditch attempt to upheld status quo. He is failing at that.

I don't like the Frenchies for a reason...maybe it has do get worse, before it can get better...maybe they need their dose LePen first bevor they understand that Macron wasn't so bad, who knows!

Exactly, it's the same pattern in many countries, the status quo candidates either lose (Clinton) or barely hold on by their fingernails (Macron, May) and quickly fade into irrelevance as they are unable to deal with rising voter anger with their tired, old neoliberal policies.

The more interesting countries in terms of a new emerging status quo are Italy and Austria where non-extremist populists are taking over.

You should change your moniker to Enoch Powell or Winston Churchill, since you mixed quotes you should be Enoch Churchill. lol

On a serious note- it might or might not ...

Then I guess I must be "so German" since my paternal grandparents were 100% German-born.

[Moved from]: These people got issues ok

If you guys want to talk about someone who has issues just go to Poland. These people got issues and I mean issues. From the way they always use god or jesus everytime they hit their arm or leg or bumb into anyone to the selfishness and low culture of always being right and first everywhere. Now if you wanna talk about any people who have issues its these people.

" Here's the map for those of you who don't know where Wimbledon is before Atch push, blah blah"

Spike, I am from London. Let me assure you that while Wimbledon may have the SW19 postcode it is not really 'London' as such. It is a far suburb that got sucked into greater London instead of Surrey.

What does Wimbledon have to do with Polish independence day anyway?

What point were you making? something about some areas of London being "whiter" than others?

Can I just tell you that I know people in London who find the amount of new immigrants with 'pale eyes' and different culture much much scarier than the old Commonwealth immigrants. Just saying.

You have strange obsessions.

As for saying 'Spike makes decent money so he lives in a white area' - well then you don't live in London, do you.
