French far right looking to lead the election
 
Anyone else following the French Elections? Sadly only 43% even voted but the Far right seems to be gaining a lot of ground.

I know it doesn't make sense from the point of view of thread title, but we're already discussing it on this thread

Finally a voice of reason in the west. Even more importantly, a nice voice of reason, and even more, young.

Go Marion!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marion..._and_EU_issues

"Foreign policy and EU issues

She is a member of the parliamentary friendship groups France–Russia[36] and France−Ivory Coast.[37]

On 10 December 2012, she took part in an international parliamentary forum organized at Moscow by the State Duma.[38] On 22 January 2013, she was present in the Reichstag at the commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the Élysée Treaty by French President Charles de Gaulle and German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer.[39] In a written statement, she claimed that this Treaty was originally based on the cooperation and partnership between two sovereign states and denounced the "forced march towards a German federal Europe".[40]

On 29 September 2013, she attended a political event organized by the Vlaams Belang in Boom, near Antwerp. On this occasion, she explained : "It is important that a front of patriotic and euro-critical parties form in sight of European elections, which is the case, and get some good results in order to lead resistance to Euro and globalism".[41]"

Technically speaking, stalking is an explanation. :D

For the Front National, it's the usual SVP/UDC-like rhetoric. If one can live with it in Switzerland (happy or not is another question), I am sure the French will survive it too. Furthermore, it's only the regions... it matters when it comes to distribute financial support from Europe and other money pots, and it might be interesting in high schools. But nothing like in a federal state.

What the hell are moobs, why do I care, and what debate?

Are you going to deny that Marion Marechal Le Pen has a nice pair of knockers? I didn't think so. :cool: I win that point.

Now stop stalking me.

It's a surprise that it's only 43% to me...
We just had young men, born in France, raised in France, who benefited from many social programs growing up, turning against their country and killing random people in the name of Islam. I would say that it's a clear clue that immigration from Muslim countries is a kind of an issue right now...

He certainly has his knockers.

I am not sure you quite understand what happened yesterday in France. But again this is just my opinion.

Same old, same old- her knockers are perfect indeed, but how relevant is it to her election. Why oh why do women politicians, from all sides, still have to put up with such comments- as if her boobs or what she wears, her hairstyle, etc, make a difference to their ability to govern.

Stalking - don't be silly now. If you stop writing such nonsense, I can assure you I won't bother to comment.

You just don't get it.

I suppose you don't recognise the importance of a nice pair of women's knockers are/was to France. It's pretty damn important.

Vive la France! Viva la liberté!

Re: French far right looking to lead the election
 
it is an interesting aspect that they do have running for election a pretty young woman. Of course I know women shouldn't based on age/looks but many DO notice these things and France isn't known for giving women a lot of credit in the "being equal to men" dept.

If she wan't pretty would she be winning?

Does politics stop the "men are better" type of stuff that happens to women in France?

She's a member of the National Assembly, and have been known to stand up, address Manuel Valls, and dress him down. She's for real, and is really more ideologically minded than Marine. But I suppose you would assume she is an airhead because of her gender and hair colour? Perhaps you ought to read up on some of her debates, rhetoric and speeches. She held her own in a debate against Alain Juppe.

So then, who is being sexist?

Guest 08.12.2015 00:25

Re: French far right looking to lead the election
 
So talk about her politics- not her knockers. End off.

Being a woman don't you think I know men are sexist?

I haven't seen her debates, but i do know as a woman in France it was assumed I wasn't as smart as my male peers in same line of work, and if it was the same thought in the UK or USA it was NEVER expressed in the same ways ;)
