  • France's National Front: Le Pen father and daughter at loggerheads

    Marine Le Pen has worked hard to distance herself and the National Front party from her father and its honorary president Jean-Marie Le Pen, first and foremost from the racist and anti-Semitic outbursts he has become famous for. But the old demons resurfaced last week with the elderly Le Pen issuing a highly controversial remark on the Jewish singer Patrick Bruel, prompting a very unusual public tiff between him and his daughter.

  • Marine Le Pen: the new face of the far-right

    This Saturday, far-right leader Marine Le Pen will officially launch her presidential campaign. While her stated aim is to win next spring's election, her hope is to replicate her father's performance in 2002, when he beat all predictions and reached the run-off. To do so, his daughter has worked hard to transform the National Front into a "normal" party. So who is Marine Le Pen? Is there truly a "new" National Front?

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
