Macron has been memorably described as Frances Ed Milliband, he may win the Presidency by an alliance of everybody against the FN, but he is unlikely to create a working Government and hold it together, he will also own every terrorist attack his administration fails to stop.
OK, I surrender. I will nominate you for SPOTY even though you've started a bit early in the year.
 
I wonder exactly how many of the losing candidates will endorse Le Pen in the serious round.

Majority won't I suspect, in the case of the more left leaning ones anyway. Though it all depends on how much they like/dislike the prospect of Hollandes doppelganger taking charge I guess (Macron).

I have however been catastrophically wrong in the past :p

Should be almost impossible for Le Pen to win, as the losing parties will tell their followers to vote for Macron.

However, two weeks is a long time in politics. Another terrorist attack on the scale of the Bataclan might swing it for her. If ISIS is smart, they'll carry out as many attacks in the run up to the election as possible. A Le Pen victory would be an absolute gift for them.
 
They aren't smart mate, that is why they are reduced to knives and cars, lorries and crowds.
Not smart, or organised nor largely supported by the people of a similar religion that they profess to jihad for.
Just a bunch of losers really, very bad burglars, robbers, shoplifters and petty crims of a certain profile, all of whom were caught, convicted and have done jail time.
Not exactly Ernst Stavros Blofeld any of them, with or without the cat.
Back to politics in France, another socialist government is stuffed.
Again, and self-inflicted.
Does that sound familiar to anyone?
 
There's a touch of the Savonarola about Macron, one feels that just as quickly as he has risen, the French may want to guillotine him.

He looks like a sleezy/weasely fücker to me. He looks like a used car salesman who would run a showroom called 'Dodgy Dave's Autos' or something.
 
Macron will win and it will be a fairly big margin, more than 5% but less than 15%.

This is what happens in French elections. Big protest vote in the first round then a cold dose of reality means the least bad option (in their opinion) wins in the run off.

Macron would have to eat his own young live on TV for Le Pen to be viewed as the least bad option of those two by the French. Personally speaking, just for her position on the EU alone, I'm disappointed.

Macron is a pro-EU weak politician, probably tainted by the usual corruption so pervasive in French politics of employing members of his own family in non-jobs-and will not have a long honeymoon period.

The next round of elections in 2022, the Front Nationale will be even stronger, and may even win power.

5 years is a long time for multiple terrorist attacks to happen, and if Macron does not have the cojones to deal with this in a robust manner-which Hollande has not, the Front Nationale will gain in popularity from this.

Pretty much my understanding of it.
 
Brussels and the EU win in France. Macron is a banker and waves European flags at his rallies. What a difference the few miles of the Channel make

Hmmm,interesting you should say that....it rang a few bells with me but I can't for the life of me think why? :muhaha:

Erm...just asking like....to what extent has la France profonde embraced electronic voting?

Only....
 
I can't help but think that it doesn't matter who wins the next round; neither will know what on earth to do about youth unemployment and terrorism. Macron will probably dither in the event of an escalation in attacks which will lead to heavy handed responses by the security forces and possibly vigilante action. Le Pen will choose that as Plan A.
