The Who’s Roger Daltrey: Brexit the ‘Right Thing for this Country’

Roger Daltrey, founder and lead singer of the English rock band The Who, reiterated his support for Britain’s independence from the European Union in an interview this week.

The United Kingdom officially filed to leave the European Union on Wednesday, and the London-born rocker says he supports Brexit because a “majority of this country felt that their voices weren’t being heard.”

“We are getting out, and when the dust settles I think that it’ll be seen that it’s the right thing for this country to have done, that’s for sure,” Daltrey told NME.

“I am not anti-European, but I am anti the present way we are being governed in Europe,” Daltrey explained “It’s got nothing to do with any of the immigration issues or any of that for me. It was to do with much more. The majority of this country felt that their voices weren’t being heard. It would have been nice to do a deal with Europe but they didn’t want to do a deal, and they sent Cameron back with a bag.”

He added: “I’m sad we voted how we voted, but I think we have to go with it now. This country will always be alright, I don’t worry about it. You know it’s going to be bumpy on the way—we expected that; the ones that voted to get out. But Iceland had it a bit bumpy when they went bankrupt, but oh not now.”

Daltrey previously expressed support for Brexit in May, saying the European Union was “set up by a bunch of crooks” and was “undemocratic” and “highly dysfunctional.”

Le Pen: ‘We Need to Protect Our Nation Once Again’

Marine Le Pen, the populist frontrunner in the first round of France’s upcoming presidential elections, struck a combative pose in a March 20th candidates’ debate, vowing to control immigration, tame the European Union (EU), and put France first.

“The EU is locking us up,” she declared, making it clear she plans on being a national leader, not the governor of a European region in hock to the German chancellor.

“I want to be the president of the French republic, not the vice chancellor of Mrs Merkel,” she asserted.

“You, the French citizens, have the right to make up your own minds, to protect yourselves … from the sources of insecurity that come from opening up our borders.”

While stopping short of formally endorsing a French exit from the EU, Ms. Le Pen promised to “organise negotiations with Europe so that we can restore the liberties that you deserve. I will organise a referendum and there will be a national debate.”

Those negotiations would hinge principally on the bloc’s free movement regime and the borderless Schengen Area, which Ms. Le Pen sees as undermining French security.

“How can we know who’s coming or going? If they’re buying weapons in Belgium?” she asked, echoing former Interpol chief Robert Noble’s assessment of the EU migration regime as “an international passport-free zone for terrorists to execute attacks on the Continent and make their escape”.

“Radical Islamism should not be allowed in our country,” the Front National leader reiterated. “We need to protect our nation once again.”

Hungarian Minister: Trump’s Foreign Policy ‘Good for the Whole World’

Hungary’s foreign minister praised the foreign policy of President Donald Trump, noting that “his approach towards migration is much better for the whole world than the approach of the Democrats.”

“For us it seems obvious that the security of the U.S. and the safety of the American people is the number one issue for the American president,” said Hungarian Minister Péter Szijjártó in an interview with Breitbart News Wednesday. “What should he deal with if not the security of his country? Who should deal with the security of the U.S. if not the U.S president?”

Szijjártó said that he considers the treatment of President Donald Trump by “international media and the international political elite” to be “really ridiculous.”

Pulling no punches in his critique of the hypocrisy of international elites, the minister said that “whenever Donald Trump says something he is bashed immediately,” and it is expected that everyone will criticize him.

“But my feeling,” he continued, “is that if Hillary Clinton had won this election and had said the same things that Donald Trump has been saying, there would be another type of expectation: that everyone would stand up and give her a standing ovation for such progressive ideas.”

“But just because Donald Trump says these things he must be slammed immediately,” he said.

‘EU is a plague!’ Le Pen rallies farmers & calls on ‘PATRIOTS’ to flock to Front National (Video)

Front National leader Marine Le Pen has promised to help French farmers turn their struggling businesses around using Frexit.

And the power house politician who is riding high in the polls has taken aim at Europe in yet another scathing analysis of its economic policies.

Mrs Le Pen, 48, is calling for the French to unite behind her to make her the first female “head of state” in the Republic of France.

And the former immigration lawyer is said to be winning voters every day thanks to her enthusiastic followers who are determined to shake up the establishment.

In a letter to her supporters, Mrs Le Pen says farmers are facing “terrible difficulties” as a result of the EU’s failing Common Agricultural Policy.

The blonde firebrand right wing leader said that France’s national identity is under threat and that she has a “duty to preserve it”.

She said: “I am struck by the enthusiasm and hope of the militants I meet.

“I thank you: each meeting is an additional motivation to move forward and continue to convince the French.

Channelling Trump, Le Pen Vows to Make France the ‘Model Nation-State’

Marine Le Pen has vowed to make France the “model nation-state” if she wins the presidency this year, saying she is the only candidate “in tune” with the growing sense of national identity in Europe.

Speaking to supporters in the western city of Nantes on Sunday, the Front National leader likened her appeal to that of Donald Trump and said she was the best candidate to deal with the problems France was facing.

“You see America with Trump,” she said. “In this new world that is emerging, I am the best placed to speak in the name of France.”

In the wake of Mr. Trump’s election victory and Britain’s decision to leave the European Union (EU), Ms. Le Pen said that her plan was “in tune with the great planetary movement which consists of the awakening of the peoples [and] the return of national frontiers and national pride”.

Le Figaro reports she lambasted the country’s political establishment, saying that France had been ruled by a succession of “lazy kings” and “presidents who are sadly normal, which is to say incompetent”.

Ms. Le Pen was also confident her party has already won the battle of ideas. The challenge now is persuading enough people to break their traditional voting habits.

Le Pen Wins Over Women Voters Who Feel Left Behind in France (Video)

Anti-EU candidate attracted 2 million women voters since 2012. Nationalist vows to defend France’s freedom against Islamists.

French women are starting to picture their next president as a divorced mother of three.

The anti-euro, anti-immigrant candidate Marine Le Pen has been playing up her gender as she seeks to convert a likely first-round victory into an overall majority in the run-off on May 7 — and it’s paying off. The 48-year-old National Front leader has already rallied some 2 million additional female voters to her cause since her last run for president in 2012 and she’s betting more will follow.

“Women are the key,” said Nonna Mayer, a researcher at the Sciences Po institute in Paris who has studied the National Front for 25 years. “These women often abstain and now they are backing Le Pen to protect their jobs and their security.”

While women make up just over half of the electorate in France they are far less likely to turn out than men, offering a well of untapped support for the candidate who manages to tune into their concerns. Le Pen’s pitch weaves together concerns about immigration, security, and the economic decline of many white French communities into a potent populist brew that borrows freely from U.S. President Donald Trump, blaming “the elite” for the problems of ordinary voters.

Firebrand Wilders Could Change Constitution to ‘De-Islamisize’ Netherlands

Geert Wilders, the Dutch anti-Islam lawmaker who is at the vanguard of a wave of European far-right populists aiming to take power at elections this year, is pushing ahead with his platform to “de-Islamisize” the Netherlands, despite lawyers saying it could breach the Dutch constitution.

In an interview Thursday with The Associated Press, Wilders insisted that his plans, which include closing the country’s borders to asylum seekers and migrants from Islamic countries, shutting all mosques and banning the Quran, are legal.

And he hinted he could even seek to change the constitution, if necessary. Wilders says, “a constitution is not something that is (set) in stone and can never be changed.”

Wilders’ Party is riding high in polls less than a month before parliamentary elections set for March 15.

Best campaign ad ever? Marine Le Pen’s powerful new ad “In The Name Of The People” will blow you away (Video)

SOUND OFF in the comments: is this the best campaign ad you’ve ever seen? Do you think Le Pen can win in 2017? Let us know.

Marine Le Pen’s newest ad may as well be a movie trailer. It’s that impressive.

It begins with the National Front Leader introducing herself and the passion she has for France. She goes on to say the country has lost its way with Islamic fundamentalism, victims not getting justice, and politicians betraying the people.

Essentially, she promises to make France Great Again and restore the country to its once united, proud and prosperous state.

The ad has spawned the hashtag #AuNomDuPeuple which translates to In The Name Of The People, which is what Le Pen says at the end of the ad.
