Le Pen vs Melenchon Election Doomsday for France and EU - Hard Left vs Hard Right

Politics / France Apr 22, 2017 - 02:11 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

The last French poll ahead of Sunday's first round in the French presidential election is resulting in a three horse race from which the 2 front runners will go through to the second round. Centrist Macron leads far right Le Pen by 1% on 23.5% against 22.5% with far left Melenchon snapping at her heels on 21.5%, all within the margins of polling error of 3%! Which means there could easily be a doomsday scenario outcome for France and the European Union, one of the two disruptive anti-EU candidates, Hard Left vs Hard Right going into the second round. Where Le Pen would seek to immediately take France out of the Euro-zone and Anti-German pro Putin Melenchon would seek to impose a 100% tax rate on those earning above e360,000 triggering a French recession, and where his policies of stimulus through printing hundreds of billions of euro debt would also inevitably mean France leaving the Euro-zone, as the ECB controls the printing of Euro's and not the central banks of Eurozone members.


A Le Pen vs Melenchon first round outcome would result in an immediate blood bath on the financial markets Monday, the Euro would plunge and the CAC40 stocks index would crash by at least 10% pulling down most global stock markets down with it as the markets digested the ramifications for the integrity of the Euro-zone and European Union.

See my most recent video to see who I conclude will most probably win the French Presidential election, which if it were to prove correct would then mark my accurately forecasting the outcome of 10 major UK and world elections in a row over the past 10 years.
