With the Presidential second round elections looming - the prospect of La Blonde winning fills me with utter dread. I find it unimaginable that a country once occupied by Nazis could even contemplate electing a National Front President and all that she stands for. I think it’s sad for France that she has even got this far.
However, when you consider the fact that nearly 21% of votes in the town of Oradour-sur-Glane went to the FN - it’s hardly surprising! A town completely destroyed by the Nazis in 1944 and 642 of it’s men, women and children massacred. Short memories…madness.
As an immigrant, I can’t imagine living in a country with a National Front President - it would be an affront to my core values. Let’s hope common sense will prevail and that France will go on to flourish.
