As I predicted, all the other parties joined together to defeat the surging right-wing, anti-globalist and anti-immigration National Front party led by Marine Le Pen. The victor, Emmanuel Macron, is a globalist and will make sure France doesn’t follow the UK into some form of Brexit. Le Pen is regrouping and will seek to redefine the movement by changing the name of the National Front party. The same thing happened in Austria and Belgium, where anti-EU political parties were barely defeated. This week the fragile coalition government in Austria fractured when the Deputy Prime Minister resigned, leaving an opening for the Freedom Party to call for new elections.
