Well they're carrying the weight of Holland's failure. Also France is a cluster fuck due to its inability to handle domestic militant Islamists,another of his failings.

And that'll be that for le Pen, because afterwards she'll be hit with some interesting law suits regarding ill-spend money.
Not a given, I admit, but quite likely as it stands now. As I see it, Macron can only lose this if he's found out to have diddled children in the past. Which is ... unlikely ...
As for the Dutch election: I don't know what some of you are on about; Wilders never had a shot. That's just not how Dutch elections work. As for AfD in Germany, I doubt it will amount to much at the ballot box.
In the end, only the anglo-saxons are stupid enough (and have moronic enough election systems) to fuck things up in the way that they have.
All the yadayada about the French being bad a war is just a pitiful attempt at redirection.
As you say, not a given, but it's highly unlikely that she will win to say the least.
I'm just amazed Fillon is continuing. He's fucked and should probably drop now.
The Tories, and especially May, in how they dealt with Brexit and the Scots, have all but guaranteed the breakup of the union. The damage is now irreparable, the UK as an entity, as it is now, is a dead man walking.
Why not sit it out past the first round? He's got nothing more to lose as it is.
