FRANCE is on course to follow the example set by Britain and America by electing a nutjob into power, it has emerged.
With Marine Le Pen gaining ground on Emmanuel Macron, the country of liberty, equality and fraternity looks set to be the latest Western democracy to let an unhinged lunatic run things for a bit.
Frenchman Jean-Pierre Boucher said: “Things have been steady if unremarkable over the last few years, so it’s time we shook things up by voting in a far right radical. It’s gone down well everywhere else.
“With Le Pen in charge we can beat our longstanding rival the UK at their own game. We’ll leave the EU, shit all over our international reputation, and have queues of lorries stretching from Calais to Nice. In comparison Britain might almost look respectable.”
Parisian Amélie Lautrec said: “When Le Pen eventually gets voted out we’ll have our own version of the Capitol riots. Only ours will be bigger and better because it will have guillotines. I can’t wait.”
She added: “Anyway, even if Le Pen turns out to be a right wing nightmare that tanks the country, at least she isn’t also an embarrassing comedy buffoon like your one.”
