For a long time the politico-family business Le Pen prospered without competition for its market share. Any dissent quickly turned into bankruptcy and if we kept an eye on the Dupont-Aignan “niche”, it was not without malice as it seemed to be true. © that it lowered the scores of the Gaullist right.
But now, with Eric Zemmour in the process of prospecting a clientele where the FN reigned supreme, a certain concern is emerging as his speech on a France in the process of “committing suicide” for having dealt too much with immigration, Islam, cosmopolitanism and Europeanism speaks to the minds and hearts of an electorate the penist, confused by the efforts of her eponymous “leader” to finally break through this famous “glass ceiling” which always sees her doomed to a defeat in the second round.
