Every now and then I see a glimmer of light at the far end of the tunnel
Now it could be the end of the tunnel, or it could be just someone further down lighting a cigarette. Or it could be an express train heading towards me.
When you are in a tunnel as dark and oppressive as the EU, any glimmer of light is welcome.
One little glimmer of light is Marine Le Pen.
To be honest, I have only just heard of her but what I read about her does indeed breathe a little fresh air into the tunnel, and give some hope in the darkness.
Reading between the lines, I gather she is somewhat of a radical with some fairly extreme views. Even Farage is reluctant to be associated with her movement. But on the other hand, I see the views of the likes of Merkel, Van Rumpoy and the rest of that cabal as being equally extreme with their desire for a Federal Europe where we all kow tow to the dictatorship of Brussels. Their extreme views have destroyed several countries, so how extreme can you get?
So what if Le Pen has radical views on religion or immigration? Her main aim is to bring Europe back to a collection of cooperating countries, so presumably under that situation the individual countries can form their own individual policies on religion and immigration? That's the way it should be, instead of Brussels dictating and forcing their own ideals?
So bring it on, Le Pen. I wish you the best of luck in your quest to break up this hideous monster. I can guarantee you have the support of the millions.
It won't be a minute too soon.
