The Independent reports that the French far right leader Marine Le Pen is to come to Britain in the next couple of weeks to campaign for Brexit. It argues that Ms Le Pen, whose arrival is unlikely to delight mainstream Brexiteers, will appear alongside the former UKIP Euro MP, Janice Atkinson, who belongs to the same group as the French Front National in Strasbourg.

Personally, I am not a great fan of Obama but I think that the ‘Remain’ campaign have done well to secure Obama’s powerful support. The ‘Out’ campaign will try to distance themselves from Le Pen but many ordinary people will be rightly worried. The ‘Out’ campaign is led by right wing populists – this is the preserve of of Le Pen and Trump. France‘s right have a long history of racism. The implications are clear.
