    Yes, no doubt change is needed. But most people claiming to be able to drain the swamp don't seem to have a coherent day two or three plan which would give anyone any confidence.

    Yep - everything will be improved by having "men from the street" in positions of power rather than people with actual qualifications.

    If the average man wants to run the country, he needs to get qualified. And there are no barriers to that in a place like the UK and there are plenty of people who did. Except that once they get qualified you call them elitist. Can't really win, can they?

    I don't know, I kinda really like Phillippe Poutou who spoke with honesty at the last grand debate in France a couple of weeks ago, to a huge applause from the audience against your ( corrupt ) but ' qualified' cookie cutter politicians.

    The average worker is not a politician, so why not have a candidate that actually represents the average worker ?

    Phillippe Poutou has become a bit of a folk hero and in my opinion, he's a much better proposition than Le Pen and her divisive policies, and the others that represent their Rothchild & co banking buddies.

    It's time to simplify things and while our present privileged politician are all motioning public austerity measures, then, they can lead by example and have a significant pay cut, have their govt cars revoked, access to govt jets revoked and eat their own lunch paid out of their own pockets. Get down to Earth

    Enough of the charade.


    BRAVO ! Monsieur Phillippe Poutou

    If you're going to praise him, at least learn to spell his name properly you heathen!
