Le Pen in His Own Words

The latest edition of The Spectator is running the first post-election, English language interview with Jean-Marie Le Pen, which does a good job of gently probing some of his more eye-brow raising tendencies. It is a surprisingly subtle but cleverly conducted interview and well worth reading. It can be found here.

In related news, Boris Johnson, the editor of The Spectator and a Tory MP, has written the definitive piece on M Le Pen's runner-up finish in the French presidential election, which is available here.
