France has elected Francois Hollande as President over Nicolas Sarkozy, but National Front leader Marine Le Pen says neither of them are willing to tackle the root of Europe’s problems… immigration.
Her far right stance has attracted record support this year with 18% of the vote in the first round of the French election, and she tells Mark Davis that she expects the National Front to be in power within the next few years.
In a profile of Le Pen and her party, Mark also speaks to her father Jean-Marie, who’s courted controversy since founding the party in 1972.
