Government planned "coup d'État" in case of Le Pen win

Recommended Posts

They say it doesn't matter who you vote for, the government always wins.

According to secret plans leaked to the Nouvelle Observateur magazine a cabal of government minsters and senior civil servants planned an institutional coup d'État in case of a Le Pen victory in the presidential elections. The idea would have been to recall parliament and run the country directly until legislative elections, the prime minister, Bernard Cazeneuve would have refused to resign. This is allowed by the constitution but would be unprecedented. Normally the government resigns after a change of president as it is no longer democratically legitimate and this gives the new president a chance to present his team to the electorate before parliamentary elections. Unlike the UK France has no official opposition or system of shadow cabinet.

The justification for these extreme measures would be "public order" with a the Directorate for Public Order running the country (shades of the French revolution). It would have created a stand-off between parliament and the president. The president can suspend parliament for a short period and rule directly... but only having consulted with parliament and the constitutional court both bodies opposed to a FN victory.

The establishment closing ranks.  Do what you're told little people.  Vote how you're told.

Goes without saying. Fund the media groups peddling the nominated candidate at taxpayer expense either directly or indirectly, gag, threaten and demonetise the media that holds any counter-position.

Nice. So what are they saying - France is ungovernable and the people don't believe in democracy, or at least, we don't?

It's like the worst of the Remainers but quite a lot worse.

Wankers. Not a fan of Le Pen, but if she wins it must be accepted and they must live with their choice for a while at least.

Seems to be what we are seeing in the US. Obama is the first US Pres in my lifetime who has not just shut up, gone away and we only hear of him again from time to time over the years.

Same with the great undead Mr Blair then.

I see they didn't do a good job of ridding themselves of the French spies if that's the language they use in those parts now

 Not reall a coup. More civil service foot dragging.

The plan shows whst wrong in French politics and civil service - they assume they are the main actors in it all. 

This plan woukd have resulted in the gen pop in the streets and riots, forcing a facebook with the hoi polloi and the highly trained idiots.

It's used as a way to flush these crafty French fuckers out.

Like when the Kraut wished Gordon Jackson's character "Good luck" in "The Great Escape"...
