Any English politician that recomended leaving the European Union and single
currency would get my vote.  Just wait til all the independent Russian
states join the Euro, then watch your new currency fall apart.  A single
interest rate for every country in Europe?  Mmmm, I don't think so!

Well, at least I saw quite a number of people protesting against Le Pen,
so France does not seem to be as mad as the number of votes for him
might suggest at first view.
And in the meantime he has proven that he's completely nuts as the first
points on his agenda are apparently a) leaving the European single
currency and b) leaving the European Union itself.
