    "Liberation"?

    Hardly.

    She wants to exit the EU and negotiate to keep the Euro? Like a teenager wanting to move out of their parent's home while keeping the allowance.

    No, no Ms. Le Pen, vous devez reprendre le franc une fois que vous avez sorti de l'union.

    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Just like all the Brexit politicians, they wanted to leave the EU but keep all the benefits without having to pay for them.

    What's ironic about your post is that Canada's PQ party, one which, as you know advocates for the country of Quebec - supports practically the same idea in their separation 'struggle'. They want to leave Canada, but keep the CAD.

    Which is why they lost the referendum and the last election and it is now political poison to support it. Sadly Britain only realized how stupid it was after the referendum.

    Re: France: Le Pen Begins to Maneuver for Frexit

    Sounds like a smart move:

    A study on how citizens across Europe are feeling towards the EU and migrants has revealed that the French are among the most negative, while it's perhaps no surprise which nation is the most positive.
    The French, along with the Belgians, the Dutch and the Italians, harbour the most negative views of the European Union, according to the poll by Elabe, carried out for French news site Atlantico.
    French are 'even more anti-EU than the Brits' - The Local

    I dont think they will win, but then I am the same guy who on the evening of NOV 7 was found giving Trump a 10% chance, so what do I know....

    At some point, this practice of denunciation being insuperable and due process just an irritant and a useless antiquity, like an appendix — as it has been in the Weinstein and Moore cases — will have to stop, if the U.S. wishes to retain any credibility as a society of laws<<<<<<Conrad Black

    I'd say that this isn't the Trump effect. The UK was the first down this road and Nigel Farage is the on that made that happen.

    Both would represent regaining their sovereignty.
