France - Return of the Far Right

As French far-right leader Marine Le Pen rides high in the polls, one of the leaders of her National Front party tells François Picard that his party does not hate immigrants. Le Pen is nonetheless planning a trip to the Italian island where asylum seekers fleeing North Africa have been landing.

Nicolas DHUICQ, UMP MP
Bruno GOLLNISCH, Independent MEP and Member of the Political Bureau, Front National French Party (by satellite from Strasbourg)
Piero IGNAZI, Professor of Comparative Politics at the University of Bologna and author of “Extreme right Parties in Western Europe”, Oxford University Press (by phone from Bologna)
