Not the result that I would want

Sarko will lose the presidency to a socialist no one has ever heard of, who will beat Marine le Pen by less than 5% of the (low turn out) popular vote in the run off;

No. The result I would want is for Marine Le Pen to win the presidency.

No, not because I\’m some ghastly Poujadist, racist or in love with women named after military forces.

On the same grounds that I wanted Obama to become President of the US actually.

I didn\’t think he\’d be any good as President (and how right I was!) and I seriously doubt that she would be a good President of France either.

However, having a black man as President of the United States seriously pissed off a large number of people I think should be pissed off. And Marine Le Pen as President of France would seriously piss off a large, if different, group of people I think should be pissed off. Namely, every single correct thinker anywhere to the left of Genghis Khan.

I just think that it will be so amusing to watch the explodey heads of the entire political, journalistic, third sector, academic and generally right on classes.

Would it be champagne or camembert that they would agree to boycott?

  1. “having a black man as President of the United States seriously pissed off a large number of people I think should be pissed off.”

    But was that worth Obama putting the US into even deeper debt (just passed 100% of GDP)?

  2. Marie-Ségolène Royal would be my choice at least she is pleasant to look at. I hate socialists but anyone but Sarkozy is good for me. Alas she is not running having been beaten in the Socialist party leadership contest by the ugly Marxist bitch who introduced the 35 hour working week who is not standing either. Who ever wins is certain to continue the downward economic spiral so France will eventually get exactly what it deserves. Smug arrogant bastards they are their politicians at least most of the people are quite nice in an odd sort of way.

  3. Exactly the same reason why I was slightly upset that Labour didn’t win the last election. With Gordon Brown in charge and the reason for the whole mess it should have turned even the most ardent socialists off Labour and pretty much destroyed them – though they are doing a good job even in the current state with Ed and Ed.

  4. With the Imom Obama it was surely also the case that there wasn’t any obvious reason to have the lame McCain as President, and there was good reason for punishing the Republicans for the dismal Bush the Younger.

    I suppose a comparable case exists for le Pen the Younger.

  5. Genghis Khan was an excellent leader who created a lasting empire out of virtually nothing partly because he established just laws. His grandson was one of the best emperors China has had.
    There are a number of “correct thinkers” to the right of Genghis Khan who deserve to be pissed off.

  6. Genghis Khan’s brutality and cruelty still mars the regions he invaded. You won’t understand any of the area from Russia to Afghanistan without getting that.

  7. John77 – “Genghis Khan was an excellent leader who created a lasting empire out of virtually nothing partly because he established just laws.”

    What just laws would these be? Name three laws passed by Genghiz Khan in his lifetime. This would be the man who had prisoners of war raped to death would it? Not sure if it was him or one of his sons who had all the women over eight of one of his own tribal groups gang raped in his Audience hall because their men had the nerve to arrange marriages for them.

    “His grandson was one of the best emperors China has had.”

    Bollocks. Kubilai gets a good press from the usual third rate Mongolian apologists but it would be hard put to think of anything particularly good he did.

    “There are a number of “correct thinkers” to the right of Genghis Khan who deserve to be pissed off.”

    The point is Genghiz Khan was a man of the Left. Big on redistribution from the Haves to the Have Nots.

    8Peter Risdon – “Genghis Khan’s brutality and cruelty still mars the regions he invaded. You won’t understand any of the area from Russia to Afghanistan without getting that.”

    So much so that the mainly Persian speaking populations of these regions were replaced by the mainly Turkic speaking people that live there today. The Mongol conquest of China probably killed more people than WW1.

    Not nice people.

  8. Antisthenes – “Marie-Ségolène Royal would be my choice at least she is pleasant to look at.”

    Why not go all the way and start a write-in campaign for Emmanuelle Béart? Come to think of it, Ms. Bardot is politically active isn’t she? They could hardly be worse than Ms. Royal.

    “Who ever wins is certain to continue the downward economic spiral so France will eventually get exactly what it deserves.”

    Excellent. Continuing to make my long standing policy for reviving Britain more viable – War on France. The weaker they are, the more that a deal with the Germans to carve up France between us looks possible.

    After all, Britain has always thrived when it has waged war on France in league with the Germans. It was reversing this in 1914 that had screwed everything up so badly. Time to make amends.

    As a long time supporter of this policy, I want first dibs on Anjou. I think I would make a good ruler thereof. Iron fist, velvet glove. That sort of thing. But in a small concession to the modern world, I am willing to accept the title of the Count of Maine-et-Loire instead.

  9. Antisthenes
    Have you heard Sego speak?
    Granted she looked not too bad on the Get Your Tits Out Marianne tour (the 2007 elections).
    But once she opened her mouth the most royal bullshit came out, convincing only to her largely underage fan base.
    You’d regret it in the morning, I promise you.

  10. Matthew L – “Excellent plan. I’ll take Burgandy. I suppose we should let HM have Normandy.”

    Seems fair enough.

    14Richard – “Can we return Avignon to the Papacy, so that they can continue to make decent wine?”

    The Avignon years were good years for the Papacy weren’t they? So that seems a good plan.

    15johnny bonk – “It is by rights hers ( and ours) we should indeed repossess it.”

    She still owns it. She just has trouble exercising control over much more than the Channel Islands. She is still the Duke (not the Duchess I think) of Normandy.

    Perhaps if we don’t do the full invasion things, we could just swap Scotland for Normandy?
