Centrist Macron is the next French President

Sun May 07, 2017 6:17 pm

Macron is leading 65% to Le Pen's 35%. This is great for the EU and the global economy.

Looks like the French are a helluva lot smarter than many voters in the United States. Congratulations, France, on not giving into hatred and fear.

I'm very happy, drinking champagne again.

Emmanuel Macron is the youngest French president ever, the youngest French leader since Napoleon.

Alt right trolls, Russians, internet anarchists tried to derail him, he ended up even higher for it !

Congratulations Monsieur Macron. Your first job....get the unelected idiots at the EU to control themselves, and help produce a sensible Brexit that works for France's major trading partner and your nation. France and Britain might be like squabbling siblings at times but that is what they are, closely related and not even separated by La Manche any more.

Nobody needs to be punished by these Anglophobe Eurocrats. That will damage France too.

pI feel sorry for Macron as all this seems very similar to the election of Mr Blair back in 1997. A young man voted in with a large majority and so many hopes heaped on his shoulders . So I understand it unlike Blair Monsieur Macron has still to get that majority., and unless he gets it then his chances of fulfilling those dreams of so many of his supporters will be hard to fulfill

I feel many people in France voted for Macron , because they felt unable to vote for the extreme right , so they had the choice of not voting , which if too many people did that might let the right wing in, or voting for Macron to ensure the right wing does not get in.

Would I be correct in saying that most of Macron supporters were mostly city dwellers , whereas Penns supporters were from the country side, or even is the split north /south.

Anyway I am sure Macron will enjoy his success this evening.

Putin will back anyone whom is willing to destroy the EU or destabilize the country. Putin seems to sees that as a way to make Rusia stronger, he believes in a zero sum game, what makes them weaker will make me stronger. So yes, probably she was backed by Putin, she got a loan from a Russian bank, that is what we know for sure.

That statement shows that you have no clue whatsoever about terrorism and its goals. For ISIS there could have been no better president than Le Pen - all their terrorists propaganda says is that the west is "waging war" on muslims and Islam and that therefore muslims need to join them in "fighting back".
A vocal anti-Islam candidate like her embodies literally all of that and would drive even more youth into the open arms of fanatists.

Also "terror-ism" = the ideology of spreading one's (political/social/religious) agenda by the use of fear. And what would be better suited for that than stirring up enough fear for a nation of 60 million to elect a divisive hatewitch into its highest office?




Apart from that, Congratulations to Mr. Macron and all of France. A great day for Europe and the entire Western Hemisphere.

I don't ever remember being so proud to be French! The mood is very positive here in Pornic. A very special atmosphere as La Marseilles was played after his speech.

The French system worked. The runoff system was a total success; it allowed for people to vote for who they want, to go against the mainstream parties yet without ending up with a nutjob as a leader. Oh and I'm very pleased that I get to keep my dual nationality.

I'm going to enjoy all the saltiness from the alt-right in the coming hours and days! Especially from those who tried to sabotage the result; lets hope that an appropriate diplomatic response is enacte.

He campaigned on a pro-EU platform so there is no surprise there.

But the music is not used only to symbolize the EU, but also because it's joyous music, and some say because it was used by François Mitterrand in 1981.

At the end of his speech he said the French motto Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité, and then the national anthem was played.

Great Britain leaving the EU isn't that big of a deal for us outsiders. Great Britain uses the pound. However, Le Pen would have dragged France from the EU and this would have been a real threat to everyone since France uses Euros. The whole world would have been impacted negatively by a Le Pen win.

Le Pen is insane. She has no clue how the economy works. Just some hateful horrible person.

I'm a Trump supporter though since I agree with many of his policies and the US is far different from France. America needs Trump from all the damage done since Obama's years. Trump's win has helped the economy out a lot over here.

No way to Le Pen though!

I understand. I hope you don't think that that was a sarcastic post. He campaigned quite openly on a pro-European platform. To be honest, I have more respect for him being open about his beliefs. However, I do disagree with them :lol:

When he met his wife she was about his age now so not that old.

Also I know that Napoleon is a controversial figure, but I notice most of his critics fail to mention that literally all of Europe attacked France during the Revolution, because they couldn't bear the thought of democracy replacing monarchy.

He has a lot of power, but he's only the executive branch, with some powers over the other branches of government. The government is controlled by the National Assembly so he can have a government hostile to his agenda. He has the power to call new National Assembly elections to try and get one better suited to his platform, but the only time that power was used, it backfired entirely.

About his executive powers, he can start a war on his own, parliament can try and stop it only 4 months later.

Since the change to a 5-years term instead of 7 in 2002, National Assembly elections happen just after the presidential election, and so far have always given an absolute majority to the party/coalition backing the president. This time it will be a bit more complicated as Macron's party is brand new, and will field many newcomers to politics.

IMO France has a lot of reasons to keep the UK as close as possible, starting with defense. There is also a natural tourist connection between the two countries and neither should want any deterioration of that financial relationship.

Actually when NATO is considered both France and Germany should be very concerned about keeping the UK close.

The French president has that power, however current president Hollande had promised to not interfere in judiciary matters and seems to have kept his promise, Macron has promised to go further, to clean up corruption and to make it illegal for a parliamentarian to salary family members, so I wouldn't expect it.

If Fillon admitted to some wrongdoing and left politics I could see him (and his wife) being pardoned but it seems he's on the offensive, taking the Canard Enchaîné to court, meanwhile his party is campaigning on the idea that the election has been stolen from them, so it's not going in that direction.

As LePen said in the debate, France will be ruled by a woman, either LePen or Merkel. I think there was a lot of truth in this. Germany is able to veto France exceeding the deficit spending limit, Germany is putting pressure on the French economy with not going to the 35h work hours week and Germany is enjoying a huge trade advantage. As long as France is in the EU and in the Euro, they have no hope of improving the economy. And not because France is so bad, but because Germany is strong and profiting from having a currency that is weakened by Greece, Italy, Spain and France. Without the Euro the German currency would be so strong, that exports would be hugely difficult for Germany, which would give a needed breathing space for other countries.

We'll see how it works out. Britain could have import taxes on all European cars, but that will mean that for the British Euro cars become more expensive and that cars produced in the UK will be more expensive in the EU, which will mean that most car manufacturers will leave the UK. So who will be the big winner in this? Or better whom stand to loose the most in that kind of thinking?

Well the EU does. Look how many french, germany, italian and spanish cars are sold in the EU each year. Compared to how many British cars are sold in the EU, it will be a lot higher. The EU's largest export market is the UK. The UK are also net importers from the EU. So its the EU's suicide call.

We'll see how it works out. Britain could have import taxes on all European cars, but that will mean that for the British Euro cars become more expensive and that cars produced in the UK will be more expensive in the EU, which will mean that most car manufacturers will leave the UK. So who will be the big winner in this? Or better whom stand to loose the most in that kind of thinking?


Well the EU does. Look how many french, germany, italian and spanish cars are sold in the EU each year. Compared to how many British cars are sold in the EU, it will be a lot higher. The EU's largest export market is the UK. The UK are also net importers from the EU. So its the EU's suicide call.


You have your numbers mixed up. EU market is far more important for the UK than the other way. Besides the fact than you will not be able to buy some goods cheaper than in the EU

And you think it is a credible threat ?


Well Germany owns the EU and sells the most cars to the UK. Germany actually seen a bit more sensible torwards negotiations instead of machine gunning people like Jean Claude Juncker. Merkel knows she needs to sell cars to the UK.
