Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That makes FN very dangerous: they are not lunatics.

 Agreed... she is a valid leader, whatever you think about their policies, and the competition is so bland. French voters are increasingly onto the L-R scam, they don't expect Sarko or Hollande types to be trustworthy any more, let alone effective.

Similar dynamic between Renzi and Berlusconi, with Salvini taking Le Pen's role. When Left is spineless or so compromised as to be indistinguishable from the Right, then voters rightly look for alternatives.
