The French Elections – Part One

Bailey and Francis break down the two ballot French election system on this episode of “A couple of Europhiles” : How the French vote for who they want in the first round, and then who they don’t, in the second round. They discuss precisely why the French are anything but a tribe of ‘cheese eating surrender monkeys’, how the French know a thing or two about war and why they have a grand monument called Arc de Triomphe.

They delve into the cultural realities of France, their strengths, the issues the French are talking about and how the French choose to govern themselves. They cover the challenges facing Macron and why A couple of Europhiles predict Macron will win. Vive la France!
