France Thinking Of Voting In Politician Whose Previous Campaign Was Funded By Russia


DESPITE Marine Le Pen previously stating her policies are ‘the same as those pursued by Vladimir Putin’, the French public are considering saying ‘qui’ to the National Rally leader, WWN understands.

“Can’t see how this will be a problem,” large swathes of the French electorate say of voting in a leader who borrow €27mn in funding for her 2016 campaign from Russian banks which she was never asked to pay back a cent of.

Le Pen, who talks of France leaving NATO, the EU and of closer ties to Russia and an end to sending military aid to Ukraine, is just the sort of stable reliable hassle-free leader a country in 2022 could do with according to a significant portion of the electorate.

“Honestly, I think anything would be better than Macron,” said some voters, predicted to be part of a historic low turnout for a presidential election, of Le Pen who is facing new accusations of fraud and criticism for calls to ban Muslim headscarves in public and immigration policies which would prove unconstitutional.

“What’s the worst that could happen?”

Other harmless behaviour the French electorate has recently taken up includes leaving their car unlocked with the keys in the ignition, storing their collection of hand grenades in playground sandpits, placing red wine in the freezer and leaving their cheese out in the sun.
