An entire column on what a Hollande victory over Sarkozy will mean for British politics. Without even a single mention of Marine Le Pen.
It\’s not particularly that I think she\’ll win, although I think it would be most amusing if she did (no, not because I support her views, only because it would shock and affront those I think should be shocked and affronted). Rather that it\’s going to be a close race as to which two of the three get into the run off second round.
There is no certainty at all that it will be Sarkozy/Hollande. I would expect Sarkozy to win if it is Sarkozy/Le Pen but the other combinations are rather more open I think.
