With recent news, I figured some people might be interested in talking about some of the European Elections happening soon. For those who don't know, Alain Juppe, the expected winner of the presidential election just lost to Francois Fillon, an admirer of Thatcher. With that news, the election is likely going to be down to Le Pen and Fillon. It's still some ways off but polls would suggest Le Pen and Fillon are close. Either France votes anti-EU or anti-welfare. Over onto the German side, it looks a lot more stable to me with Merkel having a pretty big chance at being reelected.
