It's certainly put the cat among the pigeons in the traditional parties.

A REM! majority in the National Assembly suddenly looks a lot more plausible, but there's a month to go yet.

In the meantime, Macron intends to push through two pieces of law by executive order prior to the elections, on reforming the Labour Act and on ethics in politics. That will be an interesting test and probably have an impact on the election.

Mélenchon's popularity is sinking like a stone, btw.

I’m not surprised that Mélenchon is in the doldrums. My diehard left-wing intellectual friend mentioned upthread has declared himself deeply disappointed. I think he’s not alone in considering it beyond the pale that Mélenchon refused to come out categorically against Le Pen. And in the cold light of day one can’t help remembering that he’s always been a bit of a megalomaniac (Mélenchon, I mean, not my friend [Biased] ).
