"Britain's May 'good at getting it wrong', says France's Le Pen"

Via Drudge:  French far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has criticized British Prime Minister Theresa May for hosting her main rival, centrist Emmanuel Macron, while apparently snubbing her.
Macron visited May at her Downing Street office in London on Feb. 21. He was photographed arriving and leaving, and spoke to reporters and TV crews in front of the building.

Asked in an interview, due to be aired on British radio station LBC later on Wednesday, whether she thought this was overt support for Macron and a snub towards her, Le Pen said: "It seems to be the case."

The British government says it has a long-standing policy not to engage with Le Pen's Front National party which has been considered toxic for decades by many mainstream European parties.

According to a transcript of the LBC interview, which was conducted by anti-EU British politician Nigel Farage, Le Pen said the decision to host Macron was inconsistent with May's own stance on delivering Brexit and reducing immigration to Britain.

Le Pen said Macron, who is strongly pro-EU, represented "the opposite of what Brexit stands for and the choice made by the British people".

Asked whether she had requested a meeting with May, Le Pen said she had not but would have to meet May if she was elected.

Well, it looks like Brexit is finally going to be implemented, so she must be doing something right.

Madame Le Pen is doing it the right way.

I think they will pull some shenanigans to keep her out of office. Then it will blow up in their faces like Abdul in a vest at the pizza store.

May didn't support Brexit - until it got passed. Le Pen represents the best of France but she'll never win because the worst of France is over 51%.

Peeps need to realize that the only reason France is not a Commie dictatorship is because of UK/USA. France was going Commie before WW2, and only kept more or less liberal because of USA and Marshall plan.

Once the French Commies were able to import enough Muslims, "real France" was doomed. Le Pen will lose, and they'll just keep importing more and more muslims and Africans. A doomed country.

USA going the same way. Just like California. People don't know it yet.
