Since we gave a whole blogpost to Marine Le Pen’s intervention in the TV show Des Paroles et des Actes on April 10th, here is a bit from the person she did not want to debate with.

On the same day, Le Petit Journal interviewed President Martin Schulz: what questions would he have asked Le Pen if she had accepted to debate with him on television? There were two:

-Why do you want to form an alliance with Jobbik, an extreme-right Hungarian party that wants to collect the names of Jewish members of the European Parliament and of the government in a registry?

-If you are reelected [to the European Parliament], do you intend to become the leader of the far-right parliamentary group [you want to create], and to be more present in the European Parliament?

Schulz declared that Le Pen probably did not want to debate with him on European affairs because she had little knowledge on that topic despite her 10 years in the European Parliament.

Here is the link to the full episode of Le Petit Journal [in French].

Meanwhile, Marine Le Pen was in Russia on April 12th to meet with the President of the Duma. Here’s another gem to be added to the blog’s collection:
