If the French don’t mobilize for this Sunday’s second round of voting in Regional elections, it doesn’t mean they don’t care. It just means they will find a different, more violent, way to express themselves.
The French presidential elections to be held in two-rounds on April 23 and May 7 are unlike any France has seen since the Fifth Republic Constitution went into effect in 1959. And if polls are right, the winner of the second round will have a hostile majority in Parliament. France may well become ungovernable. If France slips into anarchy, it could well take the European Union down with it.
