Marine Le Pen's 'neither-nor'
Marine Le Pen's surprise showing in the first round of the presidential vote has become the major factor in the run-up to the second round. Could her supporters swing it one way or the other? It is reported she is unlikely to back either Hollande or Sarkozy as she prepares the ground for political gains in June's parliamentary vote. That's the focus for this Friday, 27th April 2012.
