Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Which reminds me of a story. In 1995, this quite anarchist(ic) friend of mine had decided to randomly pick a candidate (shuffling the ballots upside down in his hand), and had told everyone that it had fallen on Le Pen ... and despite his hatred of the man, he had to stick to his anarchist theory/desire, and had voted for him.

But he recently confessed (a decade later) that he had been pulling our leg all this time, and that he had indeed randomly picked Le Pen, then promptly concluded that this was a stupid tactic, and then voted for a candidate of the Left (but he didn't tell us which one).

And to think that for a decade I told this story to countless leftie intellectuals, as it was meant to embody anarchism at its worst. The lies, all the lies ...
