Young First Time Voters Explain Why they Are Choosing Le Pen

May 5, 2017

The French presidential election campaign has been bad tempered and controversial with two candidates from outside the traditional Republican / Socialist duopoly contesting the final run off. Often described as ‘extreme right wing’ (she isn’t) Front National candidate Marine Le Pen stands for national sovereignty, traditional French values and the preservation of jobs for French workers. Her opponent, the globalist Emmanuel Macron favours globalism, the integration of EU member states into a Federal European superstate and mass immigration from areas with backward, third world cultures.

It should be a no brainer for French voters, but incredibly Macron is favoured to win. Things may not be as clear cut as puntits and polling firms suggest however.

Anti-mass migration French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has, surprisingly, attracted majority support among young voters. Two first-time voters explained why she appeals to them. The pair Sacha T. and Baptiste L, are casting their ballots for Marine Le Pen. They are part of a trend of French youth rejecting traditional parties, complaining that neither the socialists or the republicans speak to the young, Liberation reports.

Lights To Go Out Thanks To EU Loonytoons Energy Policy

Britain Facing Energy Crisis Thanks Government Obsession With Renewables
Britain is facing an imminent and unprecedented energy crisis thanks to its growing dependency on Ssustainable” energy sources such as wind and solar, an spokesman for the country’s electricity and gas regulator has warned.

Andrew Wright, a senior executive at Ofgem, told a conference on future energy spplies that some households would have to pay more just to keep the lights on while others “sit in the dark” due to failure of electricity supplies to meed demand.

Because of the closure of coal mines and solid fuel power generators, Britain has lost much of its energy producing capacity, meaning there is “much less flexibility” in the supply.

Wright warned that in future richer customers may be able to pay a premium for a more reliable level of service while poorer people have their electricity supply rationed.

“At the moment everyone has the same network – with some difference between rural and urban – but this is changing and these changes will produce some choices for society,” he said.

“We are currently all paying broadly the same price but we could be moving away from that and there will be some new features in the market which may see some choose to pay for a higher level of reliability. One house may be sitting with their lights on, charging their Tesla electric car, while the people next door will be sitting in the dark.”

The Telegraph reports that he laid the blame for this looming crisis on renewable energy.

“The system we are all familiar with has some redundancy built into it,” he said. “It was pretty straightforward and there was a supply margin, but increasing intermittency from renewable energy is producing profound changes to this system.

This blog and our associates Boggart Abroard and The Daily Stirrer have reported many times on the ways in which, since our treasonous politicians signed us up to the European Union (EU)  emissions trading scheme – there has been  an increase in renewable energy – average energy prices have risen by 63 per cent,  because the clever ‘scientists’ who recommended wind and solar generators as replacements for coal, oil and gas overlooked the absofuckinglutely obvious, that the wind does not blow consistently as a suitable strength to turn wing turbines, and wherever you are on the planet, over the course of a year the sun is only above the horizon for on average twelve hours a day.

Suppot For EU Declining In Central Europe

March 2, 2016

This is the kind of stuff we and sites like ours have to bring you because you will never see it in mainstream media or on broadcast news.

Voices in the EU calling for lifting the anti-Russian sanctions are getting increasingly loud as the sanctions which European nations were forced into by Brussels and the USA’s Obama administration, continue to hurt the nations that imposed them more than they hurt Russia.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel told a meeting of the Christian Democratic parliamentary group on February 16 that she would rather today than tomorrow lift the sanctions imposed on Russia. Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico put it bluntly saying the sanctions against Russia are nonsense.”The sooner they are removed, the better”, he added.

Europeans are reluctant to continue the sanctions war. The economic situation dictates the adoption of quite a different approach. Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban has recently visited Moscow to say he considers it to be a valuable partner. During the visit, he said the industry of Hungary will simply fail without strong economic ties with Russia – a very important and relevant remark. Suffice it to say, that Russia supplies about 80% of oil and 75% of natural gas consumed in Hungary.

Last December, Gazprom extended the contract on energy supplies with Hungarian partners till 2019.

Orban told Russian President Vladimir Putin on February 17 that European Union countries will not automatically extend sanctions over Ukraine. He believed the sanctions will hit the agenda to become a subject of intense debates.

The Business benefits to EU nation, particularly the weaker EU economies are a strong incentive  to European national leaders to defy Brussels and the USA (which is the real threat to world peace, regardless of the propaganda pumped out of Washington in its efforts to demonize Russia) and force a more reasonable approach on the unelected bureaucrats who would establish a Federal European Superstate.

Many national politicians know who will benefit if the trade ties between the European Union and the Russian Federation are suspended. Jean-Pierre Thomas, head of Thomas Vendome Investment, says the punitive measures make his country lose 0.5 percent of possible GDP growth annually. The anti-Russian sanctions were imposed as a result of US political initiative to make Europe bear the brunt of its efforts to punish Putin for supporting ethnic Russian separatists in Ukraine after the US backed neo – fascist government began persecuting Russians living within Ukraine’s border. European trade with Russia is roughly 10 times more than the size of US-Russia commerce so while the USA loses nothing, Europe suffers as all America’s allies suffer at the duplicitous hands oif this international bully. Europe, especially Germany, not the United States, is the one who suffers losses, Jean-Pierre Thomas says.
