    These companies operate in a global market, if there are jobs are on offer with low pay, that's because the company is sh*te, simply taking people out of the market won't change that, the company will simply close or move.

    It's called "productivity".

    21.3% voted Le Pen in the first round. Compare that to 12.7% voting UKIP in the UK in GE2015 and yet 52% support for leaving the EU.

    There are the pro-EU who see this as a good thing! More EU is not the answer, it will only guide fence sitters towards the extreme candidates.
    Don't forget Melenchon who got 19% and was anti EU and globalisation.

    nice to see aggressive ad hominem attacks from the bremainers as usual providing no actual facts.

    1/3rd of france voted for a far right candidate. If you don't find that worrying you are more relaxed than I.
    I applaud your new found interest in facts.
