WELL, I WAS WRONG

And glad to be so:

French voters turned their backs on the political establishment last night in round one of the presidential election.

Emmanuel Macron – an independent centrist – won first place ahead of National Front leader Marine Le Pen.

The result will have major implications for Britain and its departure from the EU.

Miss Le Pen wants to completely renegotiate France’s relationship with Brussels while Mr Macron wants closer links.

According to France’s Interior Ministry, 46 million people voted in the first stage of the elections which knocked the traditional Right and Left parties out of the running for the first time in 60 years.

With 97 per cent of the vote counted, Macron achieved 23.9 per cent, followed by Le Pen on 21.4. A total of 36.7million voted, a turnout of 78.2 per cent.

But it is thought that Le Pen’s chances of winning the second round are limited as supporters for Republican candidate Francois Fillon, who conceded but has gained 19.9 per cent of the votes, will support Macron.

However, far-left leader Jean-Luc Melenchon, who gained 19.6 per cent, refused to concede until the final results of first-round vote were announced.

Macron took to the stage in Paris earlier, with his wife Brigitte, and urged national unity against Le Pen.

To chants of ‘Macron president!’ and ‘We’re going to win,’ Macron began his speech by paying tribute to his opponents, and praised his supporters for his lightning rise.

He said: ‘We have turned a page in French political history,’ and added he wants to gather ‘the largest possible’ support before May 7.

Macron acknowledged widespread anger at traditional parties and promised ‘new transformations’ in French politics.

At a rally last night, Le Pen told her supporters she is offering ‘the great alternative’ in the presidential race.

    You can see by the Mick’s who are E.U. ass-suckers the same as what happened and is still happening to Trump. The Micks are blood-suckers reaping in millions of E.U. Euro so they are the lap-dogs extreme for the Brussels Cartel of E.U. slime.

    HEADLINE: “France: politicians urge voters to block Le Pen’s route to power”

    Never mind what the voters want, but it’s important to show it’s what the fucking, shit-head, corrupt, perverted politicians want.

  2. The French still have to work on Removing Kebab from their country! They’ve got their work cut out for them.

  3. Macker, they did it once and will do it again! Two people were responsible for
    driving the same savages out of Europe; King Jan Sobiesky III, who broke the
    siege of Vienna and a French King, who drove them from the gates of Paris!

    Get ready to see a lot more of this in the coming years. Just like Oblowme, the
    European leaders are governing against the will of the people. You cannot import
    violent savages by the millions and expect the people to bend over and grab their
    ankles.

    There are political parties that have been formed and are growing to combat this
    insanity. German biker gangs are beating the crap of Muslims on the streets,
    the Sons Of Odin, UKIP, PEGIDA, are getting stronger and demonstrations are
    now occurring in Sweden, Denmark and other countries.

    Will send Antz a photo from a recent Swedish demonstration.

    That was the early results- later on, when more votes were counted, it turns out that LePen was the overall winner, with 23.41%, while Macron has 22.6%. Won’t change the fact that these two will be contending for the Big Brass Ring in 2 weeks time!

    It amuses me that the #LyingMedia always calls LePen “far-right” even though she’s pretty much a socialist, but one who wants to stop the madness of bringing in yet more of a musloid army. I’m rooting for her for that reason. I visited France long ago, and it was magic. Now it’s a nightmare, and I want the old France back!
