Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

"Both Le Pen père and daughter are billionaires"

Not to defend them but that's millionaires with an m.

Unless you count in a pretty exotic currency of course.

Most reports would state that this would be a long way from being enough, although I found one that claimed a much higher figure than the others, one that would have put it above a billion francs indeed.

Francs are de rigueur with the Le Pen, of course. We don't know exactly how much does the clan Le Pen has stashed away: the French fiscal authorities are looking at their real estate assets, that have curiously been under-evaluated. The "Panama papers" are also hinting at some nest egg stashed away.

I suppose they'll have to get the presidency to have access to "real money"...
