Khmer Rouge leaders found guilty of Cambodia genocide
They sought to create a self-reliant, agrarian society: cities were emptied and residents forced to work on rural co-operatives. Many were worked to death while others starved as the economy imploded.
During the four violent years they were in power from 1975 to 1979, the Khmer Rouge tortured and killed all those perceived to be enemies - intellectuals, minorities, former government officials - and their families.
It seems they were French educated academics, a legacy of French indochina colonialism?
Has anyone been to the area or visited the memorial sites? is it like Auchwitz? a major tourist attraction?
It appears there was significant debate around if what they did could actually be classed as Genocide

From the So-Called BBC: 'The French National Assembly has passed a tough new immigration law that tightens the rules around asylum.
The bill shortens asylum application deadlines, doubles the time for which illegal migrants can be detained, and introduces a one-year prison sentence for entering France illegally.'
What is the prospect of the UK passing legislation like that?
Why aren't the French being called out as actual, real and breathing, living, Nazis?

I wonder what the French equivalent of Emily Maitlis looks like.
No, joking aside, do you think Le Pen stands any chance. Are we going to wake up on Monday morning to learn that she has got over 35% of the first vote and the global markets go into melt-down thinking she might win the second vote?
Or will it all be a damp squib and she does a Gert on us and gets 15 to 20 percent of votes and no more?
I haven't a clue. I doubt the 7 million muslims in France will be voting for her.
