There you go, the old guard politicians of the EU and France are running scared of Marine because she WILL hold a referendum on Frexit and that will bring down the EU.
Thus it’s been decided it’s time to take her down using the cowards weapon of choice, the legal system.
The European Parliament vote – carried by a “big majority”, according to acting parliament speaker Dimitrios Papadimoulis – confirmed a preliminary decision taken on Tuesday by the legal affairs committee of the European Union legislature.
Ms Le Pen had dismissed efforts to lift her immunity as “part of the system that wants to stop the French people’s candidate that I am”.
She’s right of course, but too big a threat to the “establishment” to leave unchallenged.
When the votes are counted, she ends up a convincing winner.
At that point, all hell with break loose.
So methinks we’ll see Marine accused of all sorts of things in quick succession.
It doesn’t matter what, from jaywalking to wearing the wrong smile, the pressure will be piled on and on.
Let’s just hope that her supporters, and anyone else who wants France to be great again, see this for what it is, political B.S. running scared behind the rule of law.
France needs new blood in charge and a new direction because let’s face it, Hollande (easily the most disliked of presidents ever) and Sarkozy (ousted and charged with corruption) did France no favours whatsoever.
