Will National Socialism Triomphe in France?

A Le Pen victory tomorrow should not be discounted as she proffers a heady seductive mix of nationalism and socialism, appealing to both left and right, cutting across political affiliations, with a  nationalist virulent anti immigrant (specifically muslim) rhetoric and   a  statist socialist interventionist protectionism as well as representing  the disillusioned anti EU Frexiteers who may be more numerous than hitherto supposed. There could indeed be a political earthquake across the channel in less than 48 hours.
