The Front National is the political expression of a kind of ethnic minority in itself.
That is the closed world of the people whose ancestors took what everyone else in France regards as the wrong side time after time from 1789 onwards, and not least in 1940.
It can never win a head-to-head national election against any other candidate.
There is a reason why the FN still gets only about as many votes as it did 20 years ago, and it only ever will.
The very slight rise is explicable purely in terms of the higher birthrate within its very clearly defined subculture, a subculture that is more than 200 years old.
It is the party of a country within a country. When it says "France", then that, and that alone, is what it means.
But that is exactly what everyone else does not mean, and has not meant for a good 200 years.
