Opinion – Fear of neo fascism keeps Emmanuel Macron ahead of Marine Le Pen | World news | The Guardian – John Gelmini

Despite this Guardian report brought to us by Dr Alf, I think this French election is still too close to call.

The comparisons between Mussolini and Hitler and Marine Le Pen would be accurate if we were talking about her father the Holocaust denier and belittler.In her case troublesome Muslims and Jihadists seem to be the object of her disdain rather than anyone else.

Fortunately, the 1930s were a long time ago and the risks posed by Marine Le Pen are of a France trying to pretend that it can “punch above its weight” working with America to try and control Mali and mineral rich parts of Africa in preference to the Chinese who have just built a naval base at Djibuti.

Macron is still the favourite but if he does win the margin will be small and the Greek bailout and PIIGS problems still point to the splitting of the EU.
