Lazy morning here, in Jakarta, sunny so far but a risk of rain later. Time to think quietly.
Last June I sent a text message to somebody far away but near and dear to me, on Brexit Eve…
…pondering the poll-prediction of defeat for the British independence.
I had spent almost all my adult life in the freedom fight and to see it lost in a referendum would be a matter of mourning, I observed, or some words of that sort.
Bliss was it, then, in that dawn to be alive, on June 24th.
Similarly, the stunning upset in America was a delight to see, when I had truly lost all but a sliver of hope.
However, the Evil Empire is pulling out all the stops to get its Muppet into power in Paris.
It looks to be a grim, up-hill struggle before we learn if La France, personified by Marine…
…can prevail against her Enemy Within, the arrogant elites who serve masters beyond her borders.
But hold on there.
Even the Guardian’s Nutty Natalie, whom we’ve noticed before –For True French Folk, Marine Offers A Truly Fair Future! – says the Europhiliac Muppet shouldn’t take it for granted that the French people will be bullied or beguiled into supporting his candidacy.
Muppet Macron’s allegiance, judging from the flags flanking his appearance on election platforms, is as much to Brussels as to France.
Of course ultra-liberal Nat doesn’t quite put it like that.
Her long, tedious rant takes much of a page to warn against the ‘dark forces’ of self-determination, which is anathema to her and the rest of her rotten political/media class.
But Marine’s campaign must surely already have received a boost from the almost unprecedented intrusion of an arrogant alien cabal into the campaign…
Echoes of the 1940s
…Junker, Schultz, Sigmar ‘Der Dicke’ Gabriel, Mama Stasi Merkel, all into brazen sticky-beak meddling mode.
The Euro-Commissars fear Marine deeply, and have thrown overboard the principle that each country should be left free to decide by whom they will be governed.
I said ‘almost’ because of the Austrian precedents, both last year and more than fifteen years before that.
Now we have Theresa May’s stance scrutinised by some Guardian hack too.
Asked if May would engage with Le Pen, the spokesman said there was a “longstanding policy of not commenting on ongoing elections in other countries”. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/apr/24/downing-street-silent-political-leaders-back-macron-french-president-le-pen
But May has already, by sins of omission, shown her biased hand… Lost In France – Theresa May’s Damn-Fool Partisan Prejudice! …by refusing to welcome Marine to 10 Downing Street, though she’s had Muppet there for tea and anti-Brexit biscuits.
Her latest reticence is no admirable adherence to principle but – as ever with Theresa – just a calculated manoeuvre based on her undoubted realpolitik insight.
She thinks Marine may well win through.
Muppet, overshadowed by the patriot party candidate, Marine, and her cheering fans
Even on France24 we saw yesterday those workers cheering her, to Muppet’s dismay, while today we saw him falling back to a safe haven for applause – one of those grim, alien-infested banlieue dens.
There was a brief mention too of how in the first-round vote, Marine did well in town after town across La France, while Muppet’s tally was bloated by Paris, which has a large non-French (except in the technical sense) electorate.
Disturbing thought, that the pro-French patriot candidate might well win most French votes, only to be beaten because those whose allegiance lies abroad, to Brussels or to The Caliphate, flock to Muppet’s standard.
Yet he’s a worried man, as shown by his ban on media he perceives as hostile from his campaign rallies. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/apr/27/russia-emmanuel-macron-banned-news-outlets-discrimination
Muppet clamps down, less than a week before World Press Freedom Day!
Some contrast too, with Marine, who, despite bigoted leftist prejudice across much of the French media…
…allows them to follow her round the country, sneering and smearing both her party and the millions who plan to vote for her.
Hope springs eternal!
