Jean-Luc is enjoying a late surge in the polls. Despite being on the other end of the political spectrum, like Le Pen he dislikes the EU and NATO, is generally pro-Russia, and wants more protectionism. He also backs a 100% wealth tax. It is hard to imagine Mélenchon reaching the second round, but in this campaign of boulversements, who knows anymore?
As I left Westminster Hall, with the chant, 'Macron, Présidente!' ringing in my ears, I proudly grasped my EU flag whilst walking past Parliament, and once again felt what I had felt before last year's setbacks - inspired by politics - inspired by the possibility politics brings, let's all keep our fingers crossed and hope he pulls this off - En Marché !
Embrace the grey or dye. It's up to you. But go do something you love. Be someone you love. Move furniture around, set fire to things, chuck out the unwanted, find music in silence. Find truth. No one's truly happy being a mortal, sensing the final stop. So a grey hair, a crappy diagnosis, a simple wake-up call, remind you your days are numbered, and that it's what you do or don't do that defines you.
