Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In case anyone missed it, my nitpicking critique was satirical in nature, as I see the whole war scenario, as applied to western Europe, as fantasy. Eastern Europe, less so.

But we do need to do some serious thinking about what happens if Le Pen is elected president. My opinion is that she doesn't get a clear majority in the Assembly, leading to either :

  • enough of the UMP rump are prepared to work with her to give her a parliamentary majority. This is very grim because a lot of them are well to her right.
  • constitutional chaos because she can't form a government. This is my preferred option.
